Thanks Chris for checking my music, I appreciate your efforts a lot (dial-up - we tried to make the site light, but the audio files are still... hmmm... audio files).
Yes, Asian (not only Japanese) musicians/cultures are having an effect on my music and my life. And yes about classical, I have spent my childhood listening to classical music exclusively with my family.
I don\'t know Ozric Tentacles well. I\'m sure I\'ll check them again someday.
Thanks to everyone for your votes and very nice comments and thanks to the contest organizers for your generosity.
As I said before, I enjoyed every video posted, and with this contest I\'ve understood how many great Bucket-influenced musicians there are now in the bucketbots. Buckethead must be very proud of your hard work. You all deserve the Taxidermist status.
OK, I can\'t believe that this thread I started went this far. I think I have been cautious enough when I said "if I\'m allowed to think and write about it". But I was thinking of Buckethead allowing me to do so, or not, and I was not thinking of others fans not allowing me to suggest this.
I usually don\'t like when titles are being made by fans after a release if it doesn\'t have titles. But I\'m not angry at people doing so. This time, we got an "advance cd", and I have the same feeling when I listen to it as when I discovered the Cobra Strike albums, as well as the Bucketheadland ones. Maybe should I have simply said this, instead of trying to build a title for the disc. Not because I think it was unrespectful towards Buckethead, but because I would have prefered to avoid another war here.
We will soon reach a point where I\'ll simply never post here again (my posts are rare already), in fear of getting patronizing comments from other board members.
Sorry to Travis and Buckethead for having brought a new fight here, and sorry to Buckethead if he didn\'t want us to let him know what his new music brought to our minds. If that\'s the case, Travis, please delete this whole thread, and the message will be clear enough, I\'m sure noone will ever try to name a Buckethead album in the future.
