This album is definitely better than Bucketheadland 2. It’s chock-full of powerful, funky metal. With the sort of double bass drumming on this album I don’t mind a lot of it being drum machine. I’m in it for the guitar and the grooves. Sometimes this album is a little scattered and suffers from a sort of easily distractedness on the part of Bucket, but its solid Bucket thrashing his bucket off. If you liked Population Override and Electric Tears, be warned this is nothing like those albums. There seems to be three types of Bucket albums, hard serious albums (cuckoo), melodic slow albums (Tears), and silly annoying albums (BHL2). This one is worth buying.
