2 stars PIKE 224 - BUILDOR 5th album released by BUCKETHEAD in 2016 Released January 24, 2016 All instrumental exclusively by BUCKETHEAD

Near half hour mark at 28:29 Only two tracks roughly equal length WTF does BUILDOR mean? Who knows

"Buildor Part 1" (14:47)

Starts out mellow. Echoey guitars and ambient background. After a little bit some distorted guitars join in. Melody somewhat interesting but doesn't really go to where i want it to. Riffing nice as a mellow arpeggio though. Better than recent PIKEs though. In fact this one is actually somewhat interesting, however this is the usual BUCKETHEAD affair, a long drawn out jam with guitar riffs that alternate with solos, bass, drums and a flair for repetition. Sometimes these are more interesting than others and this one is OK but not outstanding and certainly not different enough to get excited about.

"Buildor Part 2" (13:42) pretty much blends in with "Part 1" only it converts to a Floydian Gilmour type space rock guitar lick before being joined by another distorted power chord guitar and then it totally mellows out back to a space guitar lick, ambient background and very slow drumbeat. This tracks basically goes on and repeats the riff, adds solos, takes breaks with ambient passages and follows the traditional PIKE playbook. It is one that is pleasant to listen to but a little overdone at this point.

OK but predictable. Very good as background music. Only OK as an active listening.
