Bucketheadland 2 is the tenth studio album by guitarist Buckethead. Released in 2003, it is a sequel to his debut album, Bucketheadland, a concept album about his fictional "abusement" park. The album, in addition to featuring contributions from musicians Dan Monti, Bootsy Collins and Bryan Mantia, is one of Buckethead's most experimental works, containing abrupt tempo changes, spoken word segments, samples and distorted keyboard parts, as well as his usual guitar riffs and solos.

The album was nominated for the 2004 Shortlist Music Prize.[2]

  • "Frozen Brains Tell No Tales" uses the same recording of Bootsy Collins singing "Buckethead's a psycho, he's a total psycho" that is used in "Want Some Slaw?", from Buckethead's second album, "Giant Robot.
  • "Digger's Den" begins with Bootsy Collins exclaiming the phrase "Hit me", which would later be sampled for "Bird With a Hole in the Stomach" on Buckethead's 2006 album, The Elephant Man's Alarm Clock.
  • "Carpal Tunnel Tomb Torker" features Bootsy Collins shouting "I'm Cocoa for Cuckoo Puffs!", a reference to the Bucketheadland album in which he is similarly heard singing the jingle for Sugar Crisp cereal.
  • Elements of the tracks "Slaughter Zone Entrance" and "Slaughter Zone Exit" would later be used in "The Ravines of Falsehood" on Buckethead's 2004 album, The Cuckoo Clocks of Hell.
  • After an initial guitar riff, "Slaughter Zone Exit" consists primarily of silence, only permeated by a number of scattered samples, including many of the spoken word pieces heard throughout the album. A possible reason for this is that Buckethead wanted the longest track on the album to be exactly 8:16, matching the length of the longest track on Bucketheadland (Computer Master). This would make the two longest tracks from his debut and its sequel the same length.
