5.0 out of 5 stars Distortion rules, 18 Jun. 2004
Bardo Pond's debut album is the last word in psychedelic sludge fest guitar. The noisiest bits of Spacemen 3 and Mogwai meet gloriously in a maelstrom of distortion and feedback. Most songs build from a basic droney rhythm into towering slabs of noise. Lo-fi vocals and a twin pronged guitar attack provide a marvellously textured feel to the music, and when at their most ferocious Bardo Pond add new meaning to the term acid rock.
A storming classic and a work that other so called noise bands should refer to.

5.0 out of 5 stars A cosmic trip, 4 Sept. 2010

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Bufo Alvarius (Audio CD)
With 'Bufo Alvarius' (1995), Philadelphia-based Bardo Pond produced an album that towers over every other space-rock band of the era. The band turned the acid-rock jam into a major art coining a new form of music built around supersonic drones. The average piece was a rainstorm of guitar distortions, strident turbulences and catastrophic drumming, halfway between MC5's heavy blues and Spacemen 3's shoegazing. It was the soundtrack of a cosmic trauma that still haunts the firmament.
