4 stars A Real Diamond in the Rough!

After reading a super cool review in these pages about this 2009 "A Real Diamond in the Rough" one of the zillion releases in BUCKETHEAD's discography and my early acquaintance with lots of his works and the luck of owning a couple of my personal favorites (which I have reviewed also in these pages), well, I got caught.

A true to life stardom surrounds this anti-stardom composer/performer. As if to ellaborate on this maybe his virtuous skills, the same his detachment, his heartfelt and intelligent compositions the sum of all parts and yet something intangible is present as in his best releases.

Non-stop creativity guided by a totally inspired composer/guitarist aided by Dan Monti on drum programming and bass and Bryan "Brain" Mantia on drums also and 13 tracks to prove it, which adds up to BUCKETHEAD's genius like albums.

The routes traveled are diverse, all BUCKETHEAD imprinted as expected. From classical Rock to proto/prog moods to classic like progressions to blues rooted sections to latin based rhythms to magnificent acoustic guitar only structures to clean cut Jazz swings to the experimental borders of sound engineering and to wherever the roads may lead.

The obssesive attention to detail throughout the whole album is simply remarkable.

****4 PA stars.
