QuoteI havent heard it, reccomend? Is it similar to a particular past work?
Quoteso far i\'ve binged on it about 4 days straight. i also think some if not all of the songs would be awesome in a haunted house. but, gelatin nerve is probably my least favorite track on the album.
QuoteYes indeed,I think Gelatin nerve is a secret or something because it\'s just one note all the time ...
QuoteWhat do you mean by secret?anyways i LOVE the album
QuoteI feel ripped off. I know I\'m going to get a lot of flack over this but I\'m not going to hold back. After being a long time and very huge fan, I feel like the effort has gotten less and less. This is by far my least favorite release. I love the fact that its limited and personalized, but from a musical standpoint I\'m extremely disappointed. I wasn\'t so psyched about ISOT, but there are some amazing pieces there.. to me Spinal Clock has one good track on it, possibly some of the others will grow on me, but I don\'t think there will really be many more options to grow on me. The disappointment stems from this being the final cd that broke my support. After several, what I would say, less worked CD\'s and several disappointments.. I still had hope, but this was the end of it. I describe this more recent sound as what I create when its late at night and I\'m in that certain mindset, and I\'ve got my headphones on and my mind is entrapped and fascinated with all the noises I can make on my guitar, Zoning out on the reverb and delays made by my processor.. its fun, but I don\'t really want an album of it. I\'ve read some peoples reviews that say its very "experimental"... I don\'t agree with that at all, it sounds like me screwing around late at night. When comparing his massive catalog, the earlier stuff was polished, layered, and took time to create and had a sound that was atmospheric but you could tell that he finished the album and went back and crafted it again and again until it was perfect. When I hear the more recent releases, i hear less and less layered tracks, and what seems to me to be less time constructing compositions, less of a strive for perfection in some ways. Just compare anything off Giant robot, or Colma to any of the three or four recent releases. I did like the recent mellow releases, and was quite excited during my first few listens....but they unfortunately do not stand the test of time for me. I like them when I hear them, but I\'m never itching to hear them. They are single layer guitar tracks or two sometimes, but lack the dimensions of earlier releases. I\'m sure some will just say i\'m closed minded but I assure you I am an adventuresome listener, I enjoy DCK, I enjoy some dissonant and strange music and would say I am open minded. But even when comparing the DCK cds to Spinal clock... it doesn\'t even come close. Obviously Bh was pleased with this release, and I feel bad sort of letting it rip... but as was said in other threads, we don\'t all have to like it, and we all have opinions. I just miss the days of being truly amazed at the depth, dimensions, tone, phrasing, and craziness of the old style buckethead. As I started off saying... I\'m a long time fan, but for me to have the vast majority of his albums and love every one, and finally to be a bit disappointed with spinal clock... thats one hell of an achievement!!
