Monsters and Robots is a great album. Buckethead has created an album of great intensity and incredible listenability. The music ranges from heavy metal shredding to hip hop to trailblazing guitar noise. The guest musicians (Les Claypool, Brain, Bootsy Collins, DJ Disk) are fabulous and help create the album’s unique sound. The album also does a great job of capturing the feel of a live Buckethead performance. (The album art by Dave McKean is also great.) For a similarly mind-blowing experience with a little more hip-hop/dance feel, check out El Stew, a band featuring Buckethead, Brain, and DJ Disk.
