5th album out of 60 in 2014 and 76th overall

All sounds brought to you by Buckethead and all instrumental

This one has 4 tracks that clock in at 31:07

"See-Through Cloud" (9:03) begins slow and mellow lazily with clean guitar, sleepy bass and subdued percussion. Oh no. This is going to one of those endless recurring looped tracks that never goes anywhere. I predict i'm about to waste a half hour of my life reviewing this one! Yep, it goes on too long as suspected with NOTHING interesting

"Underwater Rain Drops" (9:41) see description for previous track. It describes this one perfectly

"Light Through The Fog" (9:30) while it does have a little bit more energetic drive with a slight chugga chug into its mellow melodic development and has a slightly more rockin' feel, it still hovers just below the above simmering stage and is still easy listening. This is the best track on the album but for an album that totally bites the big one, that ain't saying much. Like the other tracks, it's too repetitive, too uninspiring and waaaaaaaaay too long

"Rainbow" (2:53) finally a short track! Guess what! It's slow and mellow! Surprise! It has a nice clean guitar riff and all is pretty much in sync with the other tracks. Another canned and recycled track

This is one of those excruciatingly dull PIKEs designed to punish us between the few and far between exciting ones. I know some have a taste for bland and repetitive music that has been done to death at this point but not i. If you have no musical standards and find this crap entertaining more power to ya but for me, there is really nothing redeeming about this one
