Just listened to it. That was his weirdest CD yet. Not exactly sure what he was up to. One of the few that is unlistenable!!

It's perfect Halloween music. You would play this as people are walking up to your house for trick or treating.

Yes, not his most "musical" work, and is mainly banjo, but was free and basically a Halloween special. 

 

He has been releasing an insane amount of stuff lately.  A couple years ago he started the "Buckethead Pikes" series of releases, each with a number and a comic book themed cover.  These typically clock in at about 30 minutes, and they are guitar, bass, some synth, and all programmed drums (done by Dan Monti -- some realistic sounding drums, some electronic sounding as well).

 

Back in May he released #11 in the Pike series.  The latest Pumpkin release was #33.  That's 23 releases in a matter of about 6 months!

 

Admittedly, some of it is fairly weak and repetitive, while some of it is pure genius.  Some is heavy and technical, some of it is grungy and plodding, while some of it is mellow, acoustic, and ambient.  He really is an artist that just does his own thing and he lets the art flow like an open channel.  No apologies, no excuses, no remorse.

I intend to spend an upcoming summer taking an immersive course in Buckethead. This guy impresses me, and I want to hear his body of ork.

Good place to start is with Monsters and Robots, Giant Robot, and Bucketheadland.  Colma and Enter the Chicken are a couple worth trying after getting the 'classics' out of the way.

 

It would an interesting challenge to see if someone could start with his first official release and work through today.  Problem would be finding ALL of it.  Second issue - finding the time!  :P

 

I know there's a few BH fans on this forum.  Between some or all of us we might have most of his collection.

And just like that, two new releases from Buckethead, The Pit and Thank You Ohlinger's.  You can listen to clips of a few tracks, or if you click the "download" link you can listen to each album's first track in its entirety (both good examples of his current work).

I got both. A couple good tracks on The Pit and most of Thank You O is good; but don't in his heavier grungy metal style.

I've gone through almost all his CD's. (Favorites include Electric Tears, A Real Diamond in the Rough, Captain EO's Voyage, Shadows Between the Sky, Electric Sea, The Silent Picture Book, and the new Pearson's Square. There really is something good on almost every release). Kept the tracks I liked and discarded the one's I didn't. I tend towards his mellower releases and have over 100 tracks in my Buckethead collection. There is just no way to keep it all and enjoy it all equally. As PG mentioned, he truly is brilliant yet not all of his work is of equal merit. Still, there is enough there for any guitarist to really enjoy.

As I was listening to Jowls I wondered how it would come off live. Well here ya go... Cool experimental metal.

 

 

Why does he wear the mask? Horrible deep fryer accident at KFC? Unresolved issues with the Colonel?
