Buckethead Racks
This is the first in the Pikes series that seems like a truly great album- everything up to this just kind of seemed like a fun/wacky little indulgence. There are some killer tracks here. I love The Patrolman.
Buckethead March of the Slunks
Another great Pike with very minimal filler. A bit funkier than most of the other pikes, it's a pretty sexy album with a lot of great riffs. One I will come back to.

This is quite good- the songwriting and melodies aren't as instantly rewarding as Blue Sky Noise but it feels a lot more dynamic than Violent Waves did. They do a lot of different things here! The longer tracks really stand out IMO.

Thinking about doing a full review of this once I get done with my schoolwork for the week... rI think the album is great. Everything I wanted it to be. I never expected them to surpass Loveless, and this definitely doesnt, but its a phenomenal album nonetheless. First three tracks echo Loveless so well, and then the band decides to move on into much more experimental territory. "New You" and "Nothing Is" are amazing.

Very well done, well produced album. 'Patron Saint of Pretty Faces' , 'Lost at Highway' and 'Until I Open My Wings' are standouts for someone looking to get a quick glimpse at the band, but really the album is so short and good as a whole that you should listen to the whole thing.

After one listen, I really dig the album as a whole. Might even consider moving it up to 4.5. Opening two songs are incredible, as are Secular Haze, Zombie Queen, and Monstrance Clock. Every song seems to have at least a section in it that kicks major ass, though a couple have choruses that rub me the wrong way.

Album is very good. Probably their best since Yield actually. They sound very comfortable in their skin, which is great since on the self-titled they seemed to be trying too hard to capture their former grungy-ness at times, and Backspacer was overly upbeat- and upbeat is fine, it just seemed a little awkward at times. This though... it's very balanced. "My Father's Son" "Pendulum" "Sleeping By Myself" and "Yellow Moon" immediately stood out to me. "Getaway" is a great opener and "Mind Your Manors" sucked as a single but works quite as a simple burst of energy on the album.

Honestly don't understand the low ratings, this is most definitely better than a 3.1 It's not
groundbreaking or anything, but I can't say it's that much less enjoyable than their classic
records.... The only track I don't really like is Gopher Island, but it's like a minute long, so

Pure Pumpkins pop, but with some guts, energy, and passion behind it musically. Though I think I rlike 2012's Oceania better as a whole, there are some single cuts from this one that top any rsingle track from Oceania's grander scale. Will be interesting to see how this pairs with next ryear's Day for Night. Tiberius is probably the best thing Corgan has done since MCIS.

1.5 very poor
A Perfect Circle eMOTIVe
Animal Collective Merriweather Post Pavilion
Buckethead The Mark Of Davis
A quintessential example of the major pitfalls that releasing music with a method like this can have. A few good riffs, and not much else. Very haphazard. Will not bother listening again.
