4 stars An evocative and slow-paced BUCKETHEAD, could turn out to be probably, the best BUCKETHEAD version of himself

One of my favorite Buckethead (Brian Patrick Carroll) releases, of the zillion cds/downloads, this USA multi-instrumentalist launches each year, "PASSAGEWAYS", 2014, sets itself apart mainly because it is truly poetic in a very uncommonly way for this musician's more upbeat and hard/metal "rocking" musical manners.

Of course its musical direction reaches top of the game Blues/Alt-Rock/Post/Math-Rock altitudes, but far from doing just that, it is inescapable to realize Buckethead's songwriting as performing skills, in a highly emotionally inspired and creative slow/mid tempo environment, come to such non-stop tours de force with extremely focused and subtly-rich compositions and so many perfect-pitch highlights as a 30 minute album could hold.

A prog related artist whose own self-acquired musical idiom trascends taggings and certainly is more than a guitar player virtuoso.

****4, "essential" prog-related release, that will certainly appeal to all kind of prog audiophiles, PA stars.
