nice soundoff etc.
"band". lol thanks tho buddy i appreciate it.
Why even bother with buckethead?
Digging: Laurie Anderson - Home of the Brave
apparently he has some really well-received albums from a ways back, so I suppose there's always that "what if" factor with him.
old B-head has a handful of fantastic albums. this is not one of them
so is this guy a joke or.....
Digging: Ataraxy - Where All Hope Fades
i think i would rather kill myself than try to explore this guy's discog tbh
"apparently he has some really well-received albums from a ways back, so I suppose there's always that "what if" factor with him."
yea exactly, some of his albums before this pike series have some nice jams. even certain pikes of his are a little quality, but he should really change up his game at this point.
Yeah I'm a fan of this guy. All I can say is I've probably listened to 10% of his discog as it is impossible to keep up with all that he released. Most of the release are 2.5 or 3 and every 5 or ten you get a masterpiece. Sometimes his compositions speak right to me and I can feel his emotion through his guitar. Will maybe check this out.
Great write up dan! Just as usual :] This guy's really a kind of enigma... Very talented but driven by some unknown force it seems. I really like him somehow and it's awesome and sometimes quite obvious he was inspired by one of my all time favorite guitar players, Mr. Paul Gilbert.
thanks man :]
Great write up, have a pos. Will probably not check this though, checked some albums in the Pike series but they didn't click with me.
I haven't listened to any of the Pikes. I like a lot of his earlier stuff, but holy shit, there's just not enough time in my life to try to listen to everything he's put out over the past 2 years alone.
Yeh, it's p crazy
thanks mate, i could prob name about 12ish half great pikes from what i've heard, i tend to prefer his ambient and/or experimental ones over his heavy stuff and his 10 minute wank solos.
does this guy still play with just a backing track and himself live?
guy has to the most overrated guitarist ever. has ability, but wow boy does he know how to waste it
Digging: Cocteau Twins - Heaven or Las Vegas
i wouldn't say he's squandered his abillity but I think he's seriously underestimating peoples propensity to become jaded after hearing the same thing several hundred times , regardless of the quality
oh great wasn't aware that this guy finally had a new album out
