“Starsailor” by Tim Buckley - album review

features in: Album Chart of 1970Album Chart of the Decade: 1970s

TJR says

Things get proper weird on the formless “Starsailor”. A freeform rampage ranging from the beatless to the 17 to the 13 would usually get me running for the hills but Mnsr. Buckley’s bold approach is at once imaginative and highly entertaining, with way more highs than lows on its 35 minute tripout. “Trout Mask Replica” would perhaps be a reference point of sorts, but with Tim’s voice offering up the extremes more so than the music. From high shrieks to Tarzan-esque yelps, to animal-aping to crooner extensions, it’s a remarkable sensory experience. A deranged loon or a wired genius? Who cares. Je l’adore. Vive l’avant garde…
