Great buckethead album

Insane pingiun 64829

This album was really writen in 1991. Buckethead was sitting on a couch in his living room when he recorded it. Pretty great album from start to finish. But there is one this wrong. The song " who me?" and "little Gracie" are switched up. Just lesson to the monsters and robots version of "who me?" if u don't believe me. And I have the cd. It's correct on there. So iTunes, get the friggin titles of the songs right. But Bucketheads awsome. Just him and an acustic guitar sittin on a couch. 5 stars.

Outstanding

Nirvana 1994

I expected nothing less from the guitar genius of Buckethead.

I love this work because Buckethead demonstrates you don't necessarily have to edit or even go into a studio to create an album. The fact that you can hear the occasional mistakes and string buzzes makes it even more genuine and enjoyable. As stated below, this album is actually 20 year old.

About Buckethead

Buckethead is one of the most bizarre and enigmatic figures in American underground and experimental music since Parliament-Funkadelic birthed their bevy of cosmic characters in the mid-'70s. An accomplished multi-instrumentalist best known for his virtuosic command of the electric guitar, Buckethead is one of the instrument's most recognizable contemporary innovators, his rapid-fire riffing, near-robotic fretwork, and idiosyncratic lead lines combining elements of Yngwie Malmsteen, Adrian Belew, Slayer's Kerry King, P-Funk's Eddie Hazel, and avant-improv artist John Zorn's Scud-attack sax abuse. His first group, the San Francisco-based metal-funk combine the Deli Creeps, were a regional success, but disbanded before they could release anything. Buckethead's solo career has been more productive, thanks mostly to the motivation of Zorn and Bill Laswell, the latter of whom Buckethead has also recorded and toured with in Praxis. Laswell has also produced a number of Buckethead's solo albums (including Dreamatorium and Day of the Robot) and included him on more than a dozen one-off recordings with the likes of Hakim Bey, Bootsy Collins, Anton Fier, Jonas Hellborg, and Bernie Worrell. In addition to releases including 1998's Colma, Buckethead has also contributed soundtrack material to such films as Last Action Hero and Street Fighter. Buckethead returned in 1999 with Monsters and Robots, after which he joined the short-lived re-formation of Guns N' Roses. A steady stream of releases followed into the 21st century ranging from the contemplative Electric Tears to a more electronica/rock hybrid, and collaborations with San Francisco's underground hip-hop scene. In the following decade, he averaged a few releases a year, teaming up with dozens of artists, including Les Claypool, Iggy Pop, and Mike Patton, and in 2008, he collaborated with actor/musician Viggo Mortensen for Pandemonium from American. A dizzying string of releases would follow before the actor and the enigmatic guitarist worked together again in 2011 on Reunion. The following year, Buckethead released Electric Sea, a follow-up to his 2002 album, Electric Tears. ~ Sean Cooper
