3 stars "KFC SKIN PILES" is basically a collaborative effort of BUCKETHEAD with Extrakd and Bryan Mantia that focuses on DJ turntables mixed with experimental guitar and lots of movie samples with "The Texas Chain Saw Massacre" getting the lion's share of attention. While the music ranges from funk and rock to even Disneyland themes ("Pirate's Life For Me"), this short EP is designed to be broken out for dance raves and housequake party action. Samples from Michael Jackson's "Thriller" can also be heard.

While this isn't my favorite type of album, it's perfectly suited for what it's intended for. Yeah, it's a tad repetitive but once you're all lubricated at a social event and ready dance on the tables, who gives a flying fuck. Danceability aside, this EP is ok but even within the dance genres that are numerous there exist better albums to crank out since there's too much diologue that breaks the flow and the virtuoso guitar assaults come from left field and distract from the intended mission. Think of this more as an experimental dance party and you're on to something. Intriguing in an experimental industrial way but not totally satisfying either.
