One of the best Pikes, certainly.

Beautiful.

Wish these songs had names. And proper album covers. I'm a bit of a neat freak.

Standard editions are coming bro :)

I'll probably pick up a few more later on... Was thinking Racks, but what do you guys think are the best?

The Silent Picture Book

I'm loving #11. Not sure if it has a name yet.

Can't miss with Molokai.

He puts out so much, I'm usually listening to more recent stuff to keep up.

Racks, 3 Foot Clearance, The Silent Picture Book... these pikes are all amazing. Underground Chamber and Balloon Cement are more like 'deep cuts' though... Not albums you'll listen to that frequently. They require a straight listen. Especially Balloon Cement. That one's crazy. And Look Up There is amazing but it's only two huge songs.

Are there samples up for #16 yet? I might go for another of the limited covers... Thinking my next additions will be #13 and and probably the new one. And a few people have said Silent Picture Book, that's on my list too...

I remember the samples sounding really cool.

Different, as in....? You can't just call a Bucket album "different" and leave it at that :lol:

Hopefully mine gets here soon, I'm excited! :D

:rofl-lol:

Did you get it yet?

Different as in lots and lots of noodling. Very, very loose, seemingly improvised song structures at times. An entire song where I'm not sure what instruments are being played. It's not as weird as I thought after my first listen, but it's not as approachable as some of the others IMO.

Just realized I've been talking about 14 when I wrote 15. I don't have 15 yet either. :rofl-lol:

Kinda like Balloon Cement?

Not a bad comparison, actually. It's funny you say that cuz the percussion is more on an even playing field with Bucket's guitar (remember I'm talking about 14, I made the mistake of typing 15 earlier), just like it often is on Balloon Cement, than on a lot of Bucket releases. Although I'd say percussion is generally stellar on most Bucket work.

Is it as good as Balloon Cement? Really dig that album. Has some really weird moments but some really cool, different standouts like Veil Of Tinfoil and Replacement Nail.

It's not nearly as complete an album as Balloon Cement. I guess the Pikes aren't really supposed to be.
