Buckethead's solo career has been more productive, thanks mostly to the motivation of Zorn and Bill Laswell, the latter of whom Buckethead has also recorded and toured with in Praxis.

 Buckethead : Colma - Listen, Review and Buy at ARTISTdirect
Titles like "Hills of Eternity" and "Wishing Well" are something of a giveaway -- though Brain's beats are fairly funky (and DJ Disc throws in a bit of far-off turntable scratching on a few tracks), these compositions are mostly pretty contemplative, occupying a space just one step away from the new age section.
That's not necessarily a bad thing, but there are a couple of problems: the first is that Buckethead is a lousy bass player.
