Notes[edit]

  • Track 19, "Frozen Brains Tell No Tales", uses the same exclamation at 0:57 that is used in track 5, "Want Some Slaw?", from Buckethead's second album, "Giant Robot.
  • Track 23, Digger's Den, has a brief exclamation around 0:09 of Bootsy Collins saying "Hit me" which is sampled in the song Bird With A Hole In The Stomach off of Buckethead's 2006 album, The Elephant Man's Alarm Clock.
  • Track 26, Carpal Tunnel Tomb Torker, features Bootsy Collins exclaiming "I'm Cocoa for Cuckoo Puffs!" On Bucketheadland, Bootsy is similarly heard singing the jingle for Sugar Crisp.
  • Track 30, Slaughter Zone Exit contains a few hidden tracks after random intervals of silence, including many of the spoken word pieces heard throughout the album.
  • The tracks Slaughter Zone Entrance and Slaughter Zone Exit would be later used in the track The Ravines of Falsehood on Buckethead's 2004 album, The Cuckoo Clocks of Hell.
  • It is possible that the reason for the hidden tracks and silence in the final track are due to the fact that Buckethead wanted the longest track on the album to be exactly 8:16. This is probably because the longest track on Bucketheadland (Computer Master) is 8:16. This would make the two longest tracks from his debut and the 10th anniversary sequel the same length.
