Gonza, it's a fantastic album imo. I didn't like at the beginning very much, but then I like it a lot. Anyway, why do you want to find the same as with DT? This is a solo album, I want different things from James, and that's different. His voice is amazing in the whole album, and the songs are fantastic, specially the guitar work.

In this topic I posted the whole songs as you saw :lol:

I know it's a solo project, and I'm not saying he can't try with other kind of genres; it's just that listening to him for so many years at a prog band makes me thinks of his voice as a mainly progressive style, and it's hard to get used to the new direction he took with this side-project

Maybe with a few more listens I'll dig it :)

No, but his voice it's the same, a lot of good melodies. It is more direct music, thats all. And the growling is a bit annoying at the beginning, then you feel that is a good combination with melodic James vocals.

Maybe with a few more listens you'll appreciate...or not! :D

I've heard that he spent really really a lot of money for this production and wasn't wasted :)


My last albums
DT-Images&Words-Live in Tokyo (it's good, but they didn't play Metropolis and LaBrie was in mediocre shape)
DT-Once in Livetime - this one I recommend, it's long - 2:00, a lot of material, songs from Awake,FII and ACOS, it's good to see Derek and Kevin, and a lot of guests (like Bruce Dickinson), stupid stories and covers, videoclips and also some unplugged material.

Apocalyptica - 7th Symphony - there wasn't any thread about it, but it's my favourite Apo CD now. Very dark but also full of melodies. The cellos sometimes has a distorted guitar sound. I like those more progressive and also those more pop-rock songs. Dave Lombardo appeariance is fantastic. Great work!

For once I agree with you, I think though, that 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.

Nope, but I can compare it to other people's leads. This 'can you do it better?' arguement is totally ridiculous.

sorry sr. since you said it was Acceptable I guess your based your opinion in something more than the KFC mask; being a guitar player myself I can assure you that Buckethead´s leads are far beyond impossible to play ; and he is in the big leagues of shreeding for more that a decade.
like I´ve said before, is ok not to like a paint,a band, a film, a guitar player. but putting a tag in something you have not idea how to craft.........that is ridiculous.

Who the fuck cares if a lead or whatever other part of a song on whatever instrument is hard to play or not? It is all about how enjoyable the song is, and Buckethead is at best mediocre if you think of him this way.

Buckethead is the most talented human being to ever pick up an electric guitar.

We can argue the human being part, but that's about it.

How about you actually try to understand what I'm saying. How hard to play a lead doesn't equal how good a lead is, just as technical skill isn't the only way to judge a guitar player.

Nah. Buckedhead is a mediocre guitarist, but this is a subjective opinion, so we can't really argue about who's better.

Well, to aport my opinion here, I honestly don't like Buckethead's style. He may be a great guitarrist and I'm not denying that, it's just that his playing is "weird" when compared with, I don't know, Vai or Straiani. Of course those are the ones at the top of my head and I know they aren't that similar, it's just that I don't feel that joy and emotion when listening to his riffs or solos the way I do with other guitarrists...

That and the fact that his bucket with the mask really creeps me out :lol:
