And boy it is. These players are all seriously talented virtusos with a feel for goove and oddball sensibilities that combine to produce a simply fantastic, funny and downright funky album. From start to finish the loose-feeling jams are each fantastic, carrying a sense of that Primus eclecticism without drawing too much from the unique feel of the musicians. The instrumental tracks are all engaging from start to finish, with Bernie Worrels textured keyboards and Brain's tight, powerhouse drumming linking perfectly with Les' far-out bass style, leaving a solid, quirky soundscape for Buckethead to noodle over to his hearts content. The 'songs'on the album are surprisingly great too, Claypool wrapping his trademark redneck vocals around lyrics written about topics as diverse as Bush's administration, Media domination and people injecting their penises with cocaine. These tracks are all good, but its the instrumental jams that really lift off on this album. I recommend it highly to Primus fans, as well as any fans of jam-based music. Top Notch, all the way.

As soon as you see the name Claypool as part of the band's name on an album cover, then be sure bassist/vocalist Les Claypool is in the thick of it. And with a band with such a convoluted name such as Colonel Claypool's Bucket of Bernie Brains, and you have to suspect something experimental is waiting to escape from this album.

The 'Big Eyeball In The Sky' has both Les and the experimental rock in significant and pleasing proportions. But simply reporting the music as "rock" does it a great disservice, since the musical influences to be found are broad: jazz to punk to reggae to hard rock and around again (and again). If you know these musicians' separate work, then this record has perhaps fewer surprises than to somebody who only knows the one or two musicians. Les Claypool in his own inimitable way, provides vocals for all but two tracks, while his bass provides the thunder at the bottom end of the scale. The legendary Bernie Worrel plays Hammond organ and other keys, in his usual funky way - the legendary status coming from his period co-inventing the funkadelia soul sound. Buckethead (the shy one who wears white pancake make-up and a very large KFC bucket clamped to his skull), provides lead guitar, often played at ultra-shred speeds. And Brain (a man of both Primus and Praxis - plus other experimental rock groups),provides the drums, hard hitting but as simple or complex as the music demands.

Inevitably some songs will remind you of Primus, ranging from the hard rock through to the musical hall/vauderville. The latter having Mr Claypool telling you a quirky story about some poor soul in a strange situation. However, beyond the chorus/verse, something of the Bill Laswell concept of arrangement developes, e.g.

Being a big Primus fan I'm always bo interested in hearing any claypool stuff. This is certainly not the best work he has put out but 'snot bad. I am normally a little wary of virtuoso supergroups but i was pleasantly surprised. Bernie's keys are sicktastic, openning the album with an almost naive melody. Buckethead has with his performance here actually got me enjoying guitar noodling again ( it's been a few years!) and anyone familiar with Primus will know what to expect from brain. As for Les, bass playing that can't be argued with with typically story based lyrics that get me everytime. Anyhoo, erm yeah, tis a good'un. nooch.

Having most of les claypools previous work, I am always interested in what he puts out.
This "super group" create some interesting music. Lighter and more forgiving than lots of stuff from the Claypool stable, but not exactly to my taste.
I prefer the slightly "harder edged" work of the excellent Oysterhead and also the extremely interesting "Les Claypool's Frog Brigade". The music on this album tends to wander a bit and does not always seem hold my attention. Fans of early primus may want to steer clear of this, but if you are into everything Claypool, then this is a good addition to your collection.
