Island of Lost Minds is the eleventh studio album by Buckethead, as well as his first tour only album. The album is now out of print and highly sought after.

The album is experimental, in that, it displays Buckethead's wide usage of pinch harmonics, pick scraping, tremolo picking, high fret picking, vibrato and other atonal sound effects. Being one of his most avant-garde works to date, the songs on the album feature little structure and lots of sound experimentation.[citation needed]
