After all these years, Colma and Electric Tears are the best. Actually being a hardcore Buckethead fan some 15 years ago, I've alienated from him a lot in the recent years. Quantity doesn't replace quality! :/
Сольники у него разнообразны и по концепции и по музыкальному содержанию. Чтоб не вызывало отторжение то что он делает ебош всю его серию пайков подряд (да-да, 264 альбома), если хватит терпения то поздравляю, вы в состоянии прослушать все остальное, причем более осмысленно. Я бы мог скинуть топ лучших пайков но и у меня и у остальных топов довольно субъективный взгляд на это. В конце концов он делает просто охуенно красивую музыку
Only sometimes, but I still hear much diversity in his works and can come back again and again. This opinion don't belong to noise-inspired works he used to make in "X days to Helloween" series, of course.

I'm taking over my listening of the Pikes where I left (Pike 110 - Wall To Wall Cobwebs), but I'm afraid Buckethead's lacked of inspiration can be heard, especially in his softer-side, almost ambient solo. I hope to come across songs and not jam sessions with the same backing chords progression.
for anyone wanting to explore through the literal ocean of pike releases, but not knowing where to start/which release to listen to next (like me), http://decino.nl/?p=pike-suggester is an absolute lifesaver. it adds tags to every pike release based on its musical style which you can filter, and has preview/sample clips of each album, so you know what kind of music you'd be getting into. additionally, if you're interested in listening to stuff that's similar to Buckethead's more technical/shreddy stuff, i recommend checking out instrumental math/technical metal artists like Animals as Leaders, Scale the Summit, Sithu Aye, CHON & Miroist; they were my go to artists for awesome guitar composition & playing before i discovered the infinite expanses of Bucketheadland
gee whiz, and i thought Aphex Twin had a discography size that couldn't be contested! Buckethead is nothing short of a grand wizard when it comes to music, there's so much fantastic stuff in so many different styles. to delve into Buckethead is a life journey, i swear this man has released more pikes in 2015 than he has had bowel movements
Amazing seeing him again. Bummed he stuck to his classic set, but I got over it pretty quick. Got to give him a gift I made for him, very awesome experience. He did also end his set with Coupon, the new one.
