It was only after a few listens that I even _noticed_ the good riffs and the nifty programming. The Day of the Robot is, for the most part, a lot less "in your face" than Buckethead's more audacious records like Giant Robot or Monsters & Robots. This album's songs are long, dark, and ambient, relying on liquidy techno rhythms as much as Buckethead's crashing riffs and breakneck solos. There are sections on the first song where the droning guitar riffs sound like little more than white noise. For these reasons, it is more along the lines of "techno-metal" than the actual rock/metal/funk/stuff of the other albums I mentioned. Fortunately, the songs cover lots of ground -- sliding between smashing metal riffs, slap bass solos, long passages of electronic bleeps & blips, and even whirling piano solos - and are still enjoyable. Lots of fun music, as to be expected from Buckethead, but some of is uncharacteristically inconspicuous.
I don't want to sound like I'm being too hard on this strange Buckethead album. It's pretty enjoyable, but its positive aspects are difficult to put into words. I guess it's just inexpressible fun.
Any fan of Buckethead's must posess this CD, however. It might not be what I recommend as an introduction to Buckethead, but it is serious music from a serious musician for serious listeners.
travis webstore is awesome, with many other artist including bill laswell, mp3s are avaible instantly, and he also ships very very fast;
