Hello Bots,

Just touching base. Sorry I\'ve been absent from the forums lately, my Mom actually passed away so things have been crazy round these parts.

Anyways, I\'m due to receive my first repayment CD (of the 5 I\'m owed) and I ended up choosing. . .

Shadows Between the Sky.

(Now I just need to hunt down a copy.)

I still have 4 more CD\'s coming my way. It\'s SO hard to choose!

;)

aww im sorry your mother passed away. btw you should buy all five of them at once, so that means the shipping price will be cheaper.

I know how it is to lose a parent my dad passed about 7-8 years ago, so I\'m deeply sympathetic for what your going through. I\'m sorry for your loss. Hope my shirt is still bringing happiness to your life.

Hey JG - hope you\'re doing well. Long story short is that my grandma passed just days after this past Christmas. She raised me, taught me how to respect myself and others, to be a gentleman and how to dance among other things. I miss her terribly. My deepest sympathies to you and your family. Music has always been there for me to help me through tough times, hopefully it has helped you as well.

Glad to hear you are about to get you BH payment, Shadows may be hard to find right now but it will be back here at TDRS eventually. My suggestion is to hold off on that cd for now and try out Real Diamond in the Rough, Chicken Noodles, Crime Slunk Scene or any of the Thanatopsis albums. Running After Deer is one of my favorite albums and I highly recommend it.

anyway just food for thought - take it easy!

Hey Bots I\'m pretty new to the world of Buckethead myself.

I just became a fan a few months ago and have recieved a few Buckethead albums as gifts from my wife for the holidays. I\'m trying slowly to put togehter a nice Buckethead collection. It was hard at first to even know where to start but i figured things out pretty quickly. I would say that right now this in my top five:

Thanatopsis : Axiology
Thanatopsis : Anatomize
Thanatopsis; Thanatopsis ( I really like Thanatopsis )

Elephant mans alarm Clock
Bermuda Triangle

I have to say though that trying to choose only five is very difficult but Axilogy will always be # 1.I can\'t stress enough how much I love the bucket and Travis Collabs,
recently I found a copy of The Dragons of Eden in a local record shop so I picked it up and that is also amazing, the synth work Travis does on Abstractions of Beasts melts my heart and blows my frigging mind at the same time.

Garyfarrales

Hii.

I recommend the above....

Decoding the tomb of Bansheebot
Elephant Mans Alarm Clock
Albino Slug
Crime Slunk Scene
Pepper\'s Ghost

Cheers..!

resurrect a dead thread!  :)

JewliaGoulia

Yay for resurrecting! ;D

It\'s been some time since I\'ve posted on this thread. Gotten a handful of albums since and am (so far) declaring Decoding the Tomb of Bansheebot to be my favorite/the best Big B album and Tales of Dim Eden (off of The Dragons of Eden) to be my favorite/the best song.

With that said, I still need to get more albums like
Elephant Mans Alarm Clock, Cuckoo Clocks of Hell, Inbred Mountain, Albino Slug . . . ya, I\'ve got aways to go!

Definitely second the "Elephant Man\'s Alarm Clock" nomination if you liked Tomb of BansheeBot, they have a similar vibe.

Also, if you haven\'t already (haven\'t taked the time to skim the whole thread), take advantage of the 10 year $5 Thanatopsis deal -- that album is a steal at that price.

similar vibe? man thats saying something....I would say EMAC is on an experimental funk metal category on its own, and DTTOB as the more mature, more structured version of PG.

^ I can see why you\'d say that AT.  My prior post was more of a recommendation (based on the \'vibe\' I got from her stated preferences) than an assessment in the strictest sense.  I should have made that more clear in my initial post.

So. . . astral_traveler mentioned the song "malaguena" on another thread. I hadn\'t heard of it so I looked it up on YouTube where I then found that it was on From the Coop. I hadn\'t heard of that entire CD (I didn\'t start my discography in order.)

Re: From the Coop. . . I might be dead.  :o The recording is horrible and it was made over 20 years ago but I am completely in love. Disembodied Part 2 - holy shit!

It\'s a fantastic CD. A little 80\'s Satriani mixed with some Yngwie Malmsteen, Blues Saraceno, and a little Stuart Hamm with a whole lot of Buckethead.

I hope I never cease to be amazed by his talent!  ;D

Pat_Hatchet

i would recommend:
- decoding the tombs of bansheebot
- albino slug
- peppers ghost
- crime slunk scene
- colma

oh and JewliaGoulia, if hadnt heard of "from the coop" you should check out "accoustic shards", if you havent heard of it.

If I am going to suggest albums for you to get what is you favorite albums of the ones you have, that way I can recommend similar ones, Buckethead\'s music spans a wide range of variety so what I think is good buckethead could be different from what you think is good buckethead,

oh and welcome to the forums  ;D
