2.5 averageLambda | October 7th 10

One of Buckethead's most minimalistic releases yet, Spinal Clock is the type of album that prefers to make its point not by hitting you with sound, but by lacking it. This is a very experimental release, with a majority of the nine tracks on here having almost no melody or flow. The highlights for me are the last two songs: "Skeleton Dance" is the closest thing to a traditional song on here, containing a breathtaking Medieval-style riff, and "Bayou By You," which sounds like something from The Cuckoo Clocks of Hell transposed and played on a banjo. One of Buckethead's most polarizing efforts yet, Spinal Clock is not for those without an open mind, but if you can keep one throughout, appreciation for the inventiveness of the compositions will bloom and you may end up enjoying it. For me though, the first seven tracks are just too sparse and minimalistic to merit much playtime. 2.6
