AllMusic Review by

Originally released in 2007 with extremely limited availability (Buckethead actually drew by hand the cover art for each album in the original run), CYBORG SLUNKS was released with more general distribution in 2008. The set finds the wildly experimental guitarist performing with the Cyborg Slunk Percussion Orchestra. Beneath the artist’s adventurous genre-mixing and forays into noise, and his willful eccentricity (the man wears a Kentucky Fried Chicken bucket on his head), is a dazzling technical mastery and a kaleidoscopic approach to music-making. CYBORG SLUNKS keeps the Buckethead tradition alive on lengthy, exploratory jams like “Sneak Attack,” “Aunt Suzie,” and “A New War Is Underway.”
