Buckethead has released an awesome album in “The Cuckoo Clocks of Hell.” This is a very unique album in that so many different styles are represented on this album from metal, to funk, blues, etc.. Buckethead is an extremely gifted guitar player and posesses great technical ability. He is right up there with today’s virtuosos (i.e. John Petrucci) and can shred with the best of them, but what I love about Buckethead is that he chooses to explore and experiment with the guitar rather than getting caught up in one category, whether it be mindless shred (which can be great), releasing the same album every year, (cough, Malmsteen) or whatever.
If you are a fan of unique guitar playing or great guitar playing for that matter, by all means pick up this album. Buckethead is truly a refreshing guitarist who is not afraid to mix it up on this album.
