My thoughts on Buckethead "It's Alive"

The guitarist recognized as Buckethead, known as Brian Carroll to his mother, has enjoyed a career that has taken in such diverse elements as metal, funk, jazz, avant-garde and ambient music and has played with some of the big names in those fields such as Bill Laswell, Bootsy Collins, Iggy Pop, Mike Patton and has enjoyed a tenure with Guns N’ Roses. As with many other albums that make up his vast and disparate catalogue, “It’s Alive”, his thirty first, employs a range of styles from funk metal to  more experimental smooth episodes, taking in a range of screaming robotic noises in its’ wake.
