5.0 out of 5 stars What any TRUE Buckethead fan would expect/want... April 7, 2006
Simply put, I bought this, brought it home, and spent the wee hours of the night smiling on the couch as the one and only Buckethead filled my living room with his unique brand of guitar-shred-funk-fusion-dementia. This dvd is a trip, from the wacked out menus to the oodles of content that cover his whole career so far...videos (Praxis!), discography (you think you have it all, but I assure you, you don't), and a bonus dvd with 2 live shows (it doesn't hurt that I can see myself in the Boston one, laughing like a goon as he hands out toys). There's just tons of bucketgoodies hiding in here. This dude is just the whole package-Eddie Van Halen and Eddie Hazel all in one, mixed with Leatherface and The Shape. So rad. This dvd definitely had a lot of time and creativity put into it, so to anyone who doesn't enjoy this for the perfect representation of the Bucketman that it is, you simply be missin' the point. Might I suggest you stick to your Dream Theater/Satriani/G3 dvd's, you 5.1 Surround sound obsessed prog-metal don't like chickens, get out the coop!

4.0 out of 5 stars Bizarre, yet tantalizing March 16, 2006
If you bought this DVD, well, you must have knew what to expect. BH is one strange mofo, and this DVD fits the bill. Your not getting a Oscar nominee DVD folks, its a collection of home videos, raw concert footage, and some interesting music. Its well produced considering what you see and hear. The extras are funny to us BH fans, yet the format to see everything on the DVD is weird, many extras you have to seek to get to. Maybe that's what BH wanted, his fan-base is smart. If you like BH or play an instrument, doesn't have to be guitar, get this DVD. If you expected a Star Wars production , don't. BH loves old Giant Robot, and this DVD is put together like an old Japanese Sci Fi show. Even has sub-titles at moments with foreign footage.

In the end, this is quite possibly the first DVD I ever saw, enjoyed, and when over, shook my head wondering what the hell I just saw

That's the beauty of it

5.0 out of 5 stars A cool Buckethead scrap book! July 19, 2007
With all the polarized reviews floating around, I feel the need to weigh in as a long-time Buckethead fanatic. In a sense, it's as simple as this: If you're a super fan who likes Buckethead even when he's weird and lo-fi playing fast guitar along with cheesy drum machines and Texas Chainsaw Massacre samples, you'll love this DVD. If you're expecting a slick concert DVD in the style of the major pop acts of today, you're out of luck. But then again, isn't that why you like Buckethead in the first place? Because he's so different?

This is not a concert DVD. There is concert footage, but like most Buckethead albums, it's not overly produced. It's more like a scrap book filled with lots of junvenalia and camcorder footage of Buckethead and his crew being silly and weird. There are some truly surprising bits such as Buckethead as a guest in John Zorn's Painkiller project (the concert footage is almost unwatchable, but you get the effect) or Buckethead pretending to have an injured hand while waiting for his suit case at baggage claim or a bizarre spot on Japanese TV. Mostly, it's just cool to see Buckethead hanging out instead of shredding.

Now, that's not to say there aren't some awesome concert clips. To my knowledge, Buckethead has never had a concert professionally recorded, so don't get your hopes up. Some of the stuff must have come from fans or his crew. Who knows - it's low quality, but you get the effect. Are you really expecting to see amazing video quality of the Deli Creeps in the early 90s? I'm surprised the videos even exist.

2.0 out of 5 stars Kickin' the Bucket March 7, 2008
By B. T.
I just learned of Buckethead recently after seeing his name in a list of top 100 guitar players. I went to YouTube and saw several clips of him shredding the guitar and was so impressed I ordered two CD's, Colma and Electric Tears(?) which I haven't received yet. Today I was at the mall and stopped by the music store where I decided to pick up this DVD. I must say I am very disappointed. I can understand that this guy is on a different wavelength altogether (and I consider myself a little "out there") but this DVD has more home movie type stuff than footage of him playing. When he does play he rarely seems to stick to the song at hand and drifts off into never, never land. On YouTube I saw several songs I was hoping to catch on here. Jordan, Nottingham Lace, Padmasana and others (not sure if I got those names right). Anyway, none of those are on here, the best footage is of a Boston gig and as previously mentioned he seems to be all over the place. I'm hoping the albums will be much better. I certainly liked the samples I heard of each. The dude's got mega talent, I'm just not seeing it on this DVD.

After becoming more familiar with Buckets' music and watching more of this video I wanted to append my review. As I mentioned BHeads' music is all over the place and that is apparently by design. Now that I've gotten use to it, I like it that way. I would say though that the Boston concert is not as good as some of the free video I've gotten online by fans. There is also a concert in New York on this DVD that is "hidden" and takes a bit of searching to find. It's quality though is even less than the Boston gig. All in all it's kind of fun to watch although the home movies with Bucket and Friends are not something I would think you would be going back to again and again.

I was a little skeptical when I heard of a Buckethead DVD. I have almost all his albums, and the guy's a musical God, but a DVD might be a little......sketchy. Read more
