Buckethead is releasing new albums faster than I can keep up. Only at the end of January he released Slaughterhouse on the Prairie, and now, only two months later, he has released A Real Diamond in the Rough. To me, this looks like an eventual buy, mainly due to the fact that is sounds already like some kind of Electric Tears/Colma Part 2. I haven't heard anything from this album yet, but I reckon after a while, there will be some tracks put up on YouTube.
I was contemplating to get the next Buckethead albums in this order: Giant Robot, The Elephant Man's Alarm Clock, The Cuckoo Clocks of Hell and then maybe In Search of The... Now I might have to buy this new one, but only after I've heard a few tracks from it because I don't like buying stuff blindly.
From the front cover on Wikipedia, it looks like a follow up to Electric Tears, and also could be up there with Crime Slunk Scene in terms of production value. It actually looks like a real CD instead of something he made himself with Microsoft Paint.
