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 because 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.
