"Population Override" is Buckethead's collaboration with keyboardist/producer Travis Dickerson, and the tall guitarist states, "The best playing I've done yet!" This may the album for those instrumental guitar fans who haven't yet gotten into the chicken fried six stringer, as superlatives such as "soulful", "proficient", "melodic", "blues-fired", "barn-burning" and "biting" apply to the eleven, improvisationally enhanced instrumentals, which differ significantly from the great majority of tracks found on Buckethead's discography. Throbbing, groove filled drum work by Pinchface, and some exuberant keyboard riffage my Dickerson make "Population Override" one of the best picks for people who still have yet to discover what this prolific guitarist can deliver - and a must-have for the current Buckethead faithful.
