4.5 superbGregorSamsa | February 19th 13

The 20 minute song "look up there" is, in my opinion, the best thing Buckethead has done in his career. It actually works as a cohesive song, and doesn't just come across as 20 minutes of guitar wanking. Of course, that's my subjective opinion, but I've listened to the song about 100 times. I think it's genius.

Two long jams from Buckethead, somewhat reminiscent of tracks from his infamous In Search Of The... collection. The guitar work is phenomenal; the riffing is excellent, and the solos are top notch. The problem with this release is that it doesn't really feel like an "album"-- more like two cool jams Buckethead decided to release. Which is fine (I would rather see a release like this than one with a bunch of unnecessary filler tracks), it just makes for a somewhat fragmented listening experience.

I have never come across another musician who could improvise for over 30 minutes and create something so perfect and memorable. No wankery here. As always, Buckethead articulates all of his notes with incredible attention to detail, the vibrato and timbre always conveying a feeling. There is not one static note on this masterpiece, and the 20-minute title track breezes by without a single dull moment.

Great "EP" in my mind. I dont like to think of this as an album. rVery, very good

4.5 superbEverythingEvil2113 | October 5th 11

Two songs clocking in at 32 minutes and it's pretty incredible. gone are any of his bizarre filler tracks and all we're left at are two long jams showcasing Buckethead's guitar playing. If I was to ever give a 5 to a Buckethead release it would be this, but alas it does end too abruptly and it's sometimes hard to want to sit through 10 and 20 minute songs back to back. But the quality is there.

replaced the soundoff with this. Check out my new account, EasterInTheBatcave, for all of my
