MONSTERS & ROBOTS
Godzilla vs Chicken - Amis nucléarisés, bonjour ! Notre sujet d'étude de ce soir n'est autre que le groupe (unicéphale, en fait) le plus barjo du moment, à savoir Buckethead (le nom, déjà, «tête de seau» parce que le monsieur se balade avec un seau sur la tête, qui lui permet d'après lui de canaliser l'énergie psychique des poulets sacrifiés !) qui mixe joyeusement machines (un peu, beaucoup, passionnément) et guitares vrombissantes (à la folie). Plutôt que de tenter d'expliquer ce mariage contre nature de rythmiques somme toute assez classiques, de bruitages incongrus et de cette guitare furibarde qui est partout ailleurs, contentons-nous d'expliquer, en guise d'étude psychologique, que le Buckethead en question a vécu son enfance dans un élevage de poulets en face duquel était situé un drive-in projetant des grands nanars de la SF avec tout plein de robots géants et de monstres à la Godzilla, des dessins animés bien secoués ou encore Massacre à la tronçonneuse. Forcément, ça laisse des traces. -- Compact

1.) Jump Man- Great song, an effervescent opener that reall gets the blood flowing. Bootsy cracks me up on this track, and all of Buckethead's trademark shredding is in place. 5/5
2.) Stick Pit- Awesome follow-up to Jump Man, Stick Pit continues the shredfest with its high-pitched sampling and non-stop guitar. 5/5
3.) The Ballad Of Buckethead- The "single" from the album, this is really more of a Les Claypool song. Whereas Les sits off to the side on most tracks such as Stick Pit, Revenge of the Double Man, and Nun Chuka Kata, his bass is clearly the centerpoint of this tune. The lyrics are excellent, the bass and drums booming, and Bucket's chilling guitar adds greatly to the song, although minimally- that is, until the solo kicks in. 5/5
4.) Sow Thistle- This song includes Bootsy talking over a loop, while Buckethead adds some creepy horror movie guitar. This is an example of Buckethead's techno side, with shredding of course. Not for everyone, definitely for me though. 5/5
5.) Revenge Of The Double Man- This song is one of my favorites on the record: Les and Brain hold the groove while Buckethead tears. PhonosycographDISK, also known as DJ Disc, adds a great scratch solo over the top of this tune. Buckethead then proceeds to rip his guitar in half (or so it sounds) on another amazing guitar solo. 5/5
6.) Night Of The Slunk- An acoustic, laid-back version of the groove from Jump Man. Buckethead then picks up the slack with some electric guitar, and really adds some interesting licks and solos amidst the acoustic setting. Out of nowhere come insane guitar patches, only to recede back into darkness to let the acoustic guitar shine through again. A wah-wah solo closes the tune. Quite a good track indeed. 5/5
7.) Who Me?- Up until now, the album has been pretty much going strong and running wild. Here, Buckethead slows things down with an acoustic interlude. However, gentle as it may be, menacing it remains, as in the background, there seems to be the sounds of something terrible happening...unless thats just Buckethead breathing through his mask. You be the judge. 5/5
8.) Jowls- My favorite song on here. Jowls is the best example of a great Buckethead song- Tremendous grooves, insane ripping, loops, horror-movie licks, and absolutely terrifying vocals and guitar patches. Can one ask for more from a Buckethead tune? 5/5
9.) The Shape Vs. Buckethead- Buckethead and Michael Myers face off- Double M with his giant blade, Bucket with his guitar pyrotechnics. Bootsy and Ovi Wey narrate the battle, and PhotosychographDISK adds sound effects. The winner?...listen to find out. 5/5
10.) Stun Operator- If you were on a rollercoaster from hell in Buckethead's theme park Bucketheadland, this song would be playing as gravity took you to your demise. Needless to say, a creepy and excellent song. 5/5
11.) Scapula- TechnoBucket. I'd list this under "songs that might not be for everyone" along with The Shape Vs. Bucket and Sow Thistle. This song includes a very dance floor-type guitar pattern, with soloing over the top of it. A great tune, and an excellent addition to the album. Still, a very strange Buckethead tune nonetheless. 5/5
12.) Nun Chuka Kata- There is only one way to end a Buckethead album, and that is to shred until there is nothing left to give. Nun Chuka Kata encapsulates what is left to give from Buckethead, as he serves it to us with a one-two punch. The album ends on a great note as Buckethead launches into a full-on solo that truly makes the album complete. 5/5
Yes, I realize I gave every song a perfect rating. But that is because they all contribute to, in my opinion, Buckethead's finest effort thus far. Although parts aren't for everyone, if you are truly a Bucket fan, you will definitely enjoy every second of music on here, like me. Beginners out there, buy this and Colma to start, and then make your call. Veteran fans, add this to your collection and make your Buckethead variety loads better. Skeptics, pick this up and prove yourselves wrong.
I don't own all of Bucket's albums (there's just too many!), but of the 4 I still own (Bucketheadland-Import, Giant Robot and Colma) this is my go-to every time. It has fun lyrics from Bootsy, Onions and Les and instantly memorable guitar riffs in Buckethead's signature style.
"Robots and Monsters" is such a cohesive effort in terms of the production values, even though each song is unique you never feel worried that the next song is going to suddenly trade rocking guitar solos for a monotone little kid reading a weird poem over strings ('COUGH'Giant Robot!'COUGH') or just repeat chainsaw-guitar samples over and over again like on "Somewhere Over the Slaughterhouse" which I ditched immediately.
The standout tracks are:
-"Revenge of the Double Man" with it's unforgettable main riff and Flinstone-running-feet-style drums from Brain, BEWARE COWARD!
-"Night of the Slunk" which is classic Buckethead funk-rock.
-"The Shape vs. Buckethead" a great mix of hilarious Bootsy vocals and hard core rap lyrics telling the story Bucket defeating Michael Myers.
-"Nun Chuka Kata" is Buckethead doing his classic video game type sound, akin to the song he did on the Mortal Kombat soundtrack.
I think everyone likes Buckethead for different reasons, but for me it's this album and its straight ahead funk-techno-rock.
Like Bootsy says, "If you can't take the heat, you better get out the kitchen, Bopper...yeah."
I had a pretty good idea of what to expect but I really didn't know it was going to be this inventive. The first song, "Jump Man" is something else. It has this metal-techno vibe and the guitar playing is brilliant. Aside from being a creative genius, Buckethead is also a guitar-god (like anyone reading this didn't already know that) but there are still quite a few people who don't know of him.
Buckethead has the quirkiness of Primus and Captain Beefheart and he does for guitar what Les Claypool did for bass. Speaking of Les Claypool and Primus, he's here. And so is Brain. He plays bass on most of the tracks and he does vocals on "The Ballad of Buckethead". There is also some spoken word stuff in the background by Robert Duvall's character from Sling Blade. If you've seen the movie, then you will notice the similarites and catch the humor. My second favorite track is "The Shape Vs. Buckethead". This tune should go over well with fans of the "Halloween" series and the words are pretty hilarious. The very mellow "Who Me?" is a change of pace for the album while still keeping the humor (You'll see what I mean).
Buckethead's shredding kinda reminds me of Vai and Satriani but his style is much quirkier with a lot more humor and just all out weirdness. While it won't be for everyone, I'm sure that many people will find something to like here. I'm looking into the album he just did with Bill Moseley (Chop-Top from the Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2). That one sounds like fun too.
