Electric Tears is the ninth studio album by Buckethead. It is considered one of his most emotional and introspective albums, bearing many similarities to his previous release Colma. The entire album is played solely on acoustic and electric guitar.
In 2010, the album was released directly from TDRS Music; it has been out of print since early 2012. The album “Electric Sea” is a direct sequel to this album.
The Ultimate Guitar community ranked the album 12th on the list of "25 Greatest Instrumental albums of all time".
