Another BUCKETHEAD''s 2015 release, yet a bit less inspired, than my other favorite ones.

The main riff of "The Other Side of the Dark", the first composition of this two track project named the same way, is evocative, dream like, quiet hypnotic, nevertheless its own beauty is undermined here and there by not that creative bridges and running a bit too long, but then again the melody line pulls through. 3.5 stars.

"Three Wheeler" the second track, is closer to the bomb exploding BUCKETHEAD. A rocker by all means, its heavy stacatto riff, complies to perfection to this well known 60's-70's musical language. From early Sabbath to Deep Purple to Thin Lizzy or Taste. However its impact as been that original in its songwriting is not that great. Let's say it is a super emotional "tribute" to other times personal heroes. 3 stars

So,...adding up the numbers ***3.5 "sharp" PA stars.
