2 stars Five years have passed since Vedda Tribe's innovative debut, in between Filippo Guerini became also a guitar teacher.In 2004 the trio from Crema returned with a second album under the title ''Good Night to the Bucket''.This was again released with the support of the Italian label Lizard.

While ''Vedda Tribe'' had plenty of experimental vibes here and there, ''Good Night to the Bucket'' sees the Italian trio dripping through Experimental Rock from the start to the very end.It still has the KING CRIMSON feel all the way through, but the Fusion and Kraut Rock touches have almost completely faded and Vedda Tribe blend these sonic guitar textures with lots of sound effects and Industrial-like mannerisms.This time though the overall style doesn't sound as attractive as their previous work.The sound has become too experimental, too atonal and rather uninteresting with little to remind the charming approach of their debut.The talent of the group is still evident though in tracks such as ''Young Meditation'' or ''Uncle Bouzerant'', a mix of frenetic KING CRIMSON Prog with Electronic/Fusion, but the majority of the eleven tracks are completely based on cosmic Electronics, sound effects and disjointed breaks.The result is a cold, inhuman and mechanical atmosphere with total abscence of emotions.

The next year Vedda Tribe became history.Fiilippo Guerini still serves as a guitar teacher, while Mauro Pamiro has started his own music project, covering Emily Dickinson's poems with Electronic/Experimental Music since the demise of the group.

''Good Night to the Bucket'' is a really hard work to get through for the average listener.Stick with Vedda Tribe's eponymous album for some challenging Prog music, this album is headed only to fans of Experimental Rock forms.
