Album Notes
Personnel includes: Buckethead (guitar); Bootsy Collins, Les Claypool (vocals, bass); Brain (drums); PhonosycographDISK (turntables); Xtrakd, DJ Eddie Def, Pete Scaturro.Personnel: Buckethead (guitar); Max Robertson, Les Claypool, Bootsy Collins (vocals); Brain , Brian "Brain" Mantia (drums); Phonosycograph Disk (turntables).Unknown Contributor Roles: DJ Eddie Def; Xtrakd; Les Claypool; Pete Scaturro; Bill Laswell ; Bootsy Collins.Mixing metallic guitar heroics with funk, hip-hop, electronica, and a cinematic soundtrack feel, Buckethead's Monsters and Robots is yet another eclectic opus inspired in large part by low-budget monster/horror, martial arts, and science fiction movies, especially those of Japan. Like any Buckethead album, the music does meander in spots, but this outing does improve on its predecessor Colma by employing a variety of guest bassists; Primus' Les Claypool (as well as drummer Brain), Bootsy Collins, and Bill Laswell all enliven the music's rhythmic underpinnings in ways that Buckethead's own bass playing on Colma didn't. Plus, the contributions of guest DJs Phonosycograph Disk, DJ Eddie Def, and Xtrakd are inventive and stimulating, complementing rather than confusing the musical mix. It may not be completely consistent, but Monsters and Robots offers more than enough musical derangement to satisfy. ~ Steve Huey

Perhaps Buckethead's Best And Brightest!

Created: 23/03/06
What a mix, features new original tracks with same group of friens, only with one small difference, Les Claypool on bass for all 12 or 13 tracks depending on what version you get. They due amazing renditions of Giant Robot (Band on NTT, not the album Giant Robot) songs aswell. From start to finish, a great album. Worth your time!

Monsters and Robots (1999) is a concept album by Buckethead (a member of Guns 'n' Roses from 2000 to 2004). The album is a blend of experimental rock, alt-metal, funk, and ambient and electronic sounds interspersed with some sci-fi dialogue about Giant Robot and Buckethead. It’s like a sci-fi story presented in a radio program-type format. What comes to mind for me is Orson Welles’ “The War of the Worlds” broadcast.


Monsters and Robots follows Bucketheadland (1992), Giant Robot (1994), The Day of the Robots (1996), and Colma (1998), an acoustic album. What ties the first three albums together is ambient sounds (sometimes bizarre and/or quirky), weird skits, difficult instrumental passages, experimentation, and a sci-fi tone. Monsters and Robots has been rated 4 out of 5 stars by Allmusic and is one of Buckethead’s bestselling solo albums. However, it’s not “my cup of tea.” Colma is a meditation album reflecting an introspective time in Buckethead’s life (must-listen-to tracks: “For Mom,” “Big Sur Moon,” and “Watching the Boats With My Dad.” It is more my type of Buckethead music although my appreciation for his music spans his whole range. I tend to categorize Buckethead’s works into light, medium, and heavy and prefer the first two.


The title of Buckethead’s first album—Bucketheadland—describes his musical output. Fans are comfortable living in Bucketheadland. Even though I am not a metal type of person (except for some Deep Purple decades ago) and came across Buckethead by accident (Pike 18 on YouTube) after listening to many of his albums, I find that I can live in Bucketheadland quite comfortably. I just pick and choose what appeals to me and leave the rest to others.

not so sure if i would say this album great just yet , but a quick listen and you will hear buckethead's incredible shredding and guitar work . i guess the fact that buckethead is doing what he wants as an artist is better than being a commercial success or being in the top 40 .
