Album Review

One never really knows what to expect from Buckethead, although the fact that Bucketheadland, Vol. 2 is intended as a sequel/continuation of Bucketheadland points the way, at least conceptually. The original Bucketheadland was a crazy sort of heavy metal P-Funk space opera that had something to do with Buckethead opening an amusement park and doing battle with the evil Slipdisc in the process. Oh yeah, and lots of Wille Wonka samples. Bucketheadland, Vol. 2 picks up after the park has opened, and (sort of) describes some of the rides and attractions featured there. The tunes are mostly Buckethead's trademark light-speed heavy metal riffs and runs, separated/interrupted by little spoken bits (including Bootsy Collins). A couple of Bootsy's bits are pretty funny, as in "Frozen Brains Tell No Tales" where he singsongs "Buckethead's a psycho, he's a total psycho" then announces "he's got a bucket on his heeeaaad!" just before the big solo. On "Carpal Tunnel Tomb Torker" Bootsy proclaims, "I'm coco for cuckoo puffs!" There are also a number of hilarious/disturbing brief acoustic numbers like "Taxidermy Tots," "The Ballad of the Inside-Out Face," and "Fun for You." Deranged, hilarious, and virtuosic, Bucketheadland, Vol. 2 is easily one of Buckethead's most enjoyable releases.

Does anyone one else think that frozen brains tell no tale is actually good?

Weird, but good

I think this next album is freakey but good.If you are a true buckethed fan I recomend you buy this awesome album. Tracks like, "The Cobra's Head" and "The Battery Cage Crawls" are a demonstration of his skill.


Up until a few days ago, I thought this album was a pile of slunk. But once I gave it a chance, I realized how ridiculously sexy it is. Even the creepy acoustic pieces are great. Tracks like John Merrick, Frozen Brains, and Machete Mirage, (Not machoto mirago, itunes!) are the highlights of this wedge. Slaughter Zone Exit takes scariniess to a whole new level, it also takes creepiness, awesomeness, ridiculousness, disgustingness, and trippin' ballsness to a whole new level. Great album.

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,...
