All I can really say is Wow!
J. Bucket
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.

It's pretty good but very mellow, to those who know his music it sounds like something off Colma.

buckethead's best work is when he feels free to be himself and not obliged to consider sounding like someone else, and on this CD he is totally at his best; perhaps having claypool around does not hurt either. i have listened carefully to most of his work and this i believe is head and shoulders above the rest. one has to determine what it is they seek from an artist and in buckethead's case it is his raw fingernumbing bunkerbeat and great turnpike sound. i appreciate his ability to be very tasteful and even classical, but someone who calls himself buckethead has to consider his own invention above all else and that's what he's done on this his finest work, in my book, to date! This CD will not leave you twitching for full throttle because it's all there.

Most people I know who own or have heard this album thought they were buying a straight up guitar player album. THIS IS A WARNING FOR ANY WHO THINKS THIS! The songs are divided into two categories. 1. (robots) These songs sound similar to (but not exactly like) Satriani's "Engine's of Creation". A mix of techno, rap, and guitar music. 2. (monsters) Songs like Primus with more guitar up front (these are my personal favorites). If this sound interesting to you, hurry up and buy it! If not, go buy Satriani or Johnson.

While Colma may have shown the best of Bucket's softer side, Monsters and Robots takes the cake for Buckethead's electric work. And what an album it is. Allow me to take a song-by-song review:

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.

This is definitely Buckethead's most listenable album, with it's catchy riffs, hip-hop beats and great vocal performances.

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."

Monsters and Robots is a great album. Buckethead has created an album of great intensity and incredible listenability. The music ranges from heavy metal shredding to hip hop to trailblazing guitar noise. The guest musicians (Les Claypool, Brain, Bootsy Collins, DJ Disk) are fabulous and help create the album's unique sound. The album also does a great job of capturing the feel of a live Buckethead performance. (The album art by Dave McKean is also great.) For a similarly mind-blowing experience with a little more hip-hop/dance feel, check out El Stew, a band featuring Buckethead, Brain, and DJ Disk.
