Buckethead album chronology
Giant Robot
Day of the Robot

Giant Robot is the second studio album release by Buckethead (not to be confused with the album of the same name released by Buckethead's band Giant Robot with NTT Records), and loosely following the same concept as his previous album (Bucketheadland). Again the album was originally a Japanese only release. Giant Robot features many guest appearances by artists such as Iggy Pop and Bill Moseley.

The reason "Binge and Grab" is noted as being an "instrumental version" is because the song is originally a Deli Creeps song with lyrics. There is no known studio recording of the Deli Creeps version but there are many bootleg copies from live shows which can be found.

The track "Pure Imagination," features an introduction message that sounds like Mudbone, Richard Pryor's most famous character.

The cover art features a shadow of a giant robot and sets the tone for the music on the album.
