The only thing ridiculous here is going back and finding all those fucking quotes. What if I said I like to listen to Prince solos in daisy dukes while waxing my dads corvette? What if I said I like to deliver pizzas to my ex-girlfriends while listening to george michael solos? What if I said your pumpkin avatar sucks? What if I said I will go very far to claim how amazing jesus christ solos on guitar while I make a milkshake?
Prince is a pretty good guitarist, the rest I'd believe about you.

as far as reviews go, I plan on trying to review my top 4 last.fm artists in full (Stratovarius, Porcupine Tree, Bigelf, and Buckethead), and that alone should create a pretty big variety. I might skip Blind Guardian (#5), will review Alice Cooper (#6), and then after and between that, I'll review anything and everything that I can stand to listen to (No point in reviewing an album that I just dislike because its not my thing)

I like to go swimming in speedos while listening to Yanni solos too. You should review a justin timberlake album. Sick solos bro.

Rebel wrote: Buckethead's playing is more sincere and emotive than any guitarist on the face of the earth.
Rebel wrote: Except Buckethead doesn't release bad albums.
Rebel wrote: I'd rather hear someone who can master any genre they set to, than just being very good at one.
Rebel wrote: Buckethead's prolificness, versatility and technical prowess are unmatched by any living guitarist.
your ignorance is so pervasive it hurts to read.
Rebel wrote: Tolkki's guitar playing is an absolute joke compared to BH's
Rebel wrote: Buckethead is the star of the album, without him it would have been the huge failure everyone expected.
People still set out to trash it, it was too hyped, but Buckethead is so awesome, there was nothing to be done for it.
Rebel wrote: you're letting various prejudices like "Instrumental", or "Releases a lot of music", instead of really exploring the music.
Rebel wrote: Your opinion is of course, wrong
Rebel wrote: Anything Buckethead plays guitar on is flipping cool
Rebel wrote: spending more time bickering on youtube comment threads than listening to music
Rebel wrote: Part of what makes him so incredible is his limitless creativity, he can improvise an entire album's worth of material, and it will sound incredible because he's just that good.
NeonVomit wrote: I like how people here cannot grasp the concept of subjectivism in art.
Rebel wrote: Not necessarily art, talent.
I do think Buckethead is an incredibly artistic guitarist, but that's subjective, what I'm arguing is that he is the most TALENTED guitarist to ever walk the face of the earth.
Rebel wrote: I think most people don't consider Buckethead the greatest electric guitar player to ever live, and that means he's underrated...
Rebel wrote: He can play any of those styles with the same precision and feel as the masters of that specific genre. He is the master of anything he tries to do.
Rebel wrote: Ignorance is the only excuse for thinking Slash could even come close to the guitar nirvana that is Buckethead.
Rebel wrote: Without Buckethead, I'd def. choose Strato, but, it'd be hard to pass up ANY opportunity to see The Greatest Guitarist In Music History perform
Rebel wrote: Buckethead is the most talented human being to ever pick up an electric guitar.
NeonVomit wrote: I like how people here cannot grasp the concept of subjectivism in art.
You spent all that time compiling quotes, and you're still wrong. :D ISN'T THE INTERNET FUN?!?!?!?!?
Buckethead might not be completely awful, but we can't know that, as he is completely unable to compose any decent sounding music.

Jens rocks, too.
According to this review at least
http://www.bleeding4metal.de/index.php? ... de&id=3197
cause he seemed to rehearse "one-handed and blind" the whole time due to serious sms-affairs :lol:
9/10 btw.
And the reviewer critizied the lack of (rhythm)guitars.

According to Google Translator:
¡Qué desperdicio en este sentido fueron las orgías forzada de alta frecuencia de las grabaciones anteriores.
Translated:
How much of a waste were in that way the forced orgies of high frequency from previous recording
:w00t:

Besides that, excellent review. It seem that so far most of the reviews are positive in a sort of way :)

Mine? High frequency orgies? How did you know about them? :shock:

You're getting funny, in a "Family Guy repeating the same stupid joke over and over" kind of way, but mostly you're just wrong.

You start the joke by calling Buckethead good.
He is a talented guitarist but a crappy composer.

Yeah, I guess we might just be over 100. And Rebel still didn't stop saying bullshit.

However it seems like some people in this thread DO have that much time on their hands.

But not responding and admitting I'm right are quite similar.

You would have to say something correct before I could admit it.

Points for the gross irony, but I think you were trying to be serious, which is pretty pathetic.
