Buckley goes bizarre

Tim Buckley: Starsailor (Straight STS 1064).

by Lon Goddard

Straight? This is absolutely bizarre!

Buckley, who effervesced a trippy aura anyway, has finally fallen off his stool. His last album, Lorca, presented a new obsession - he thought he was the first man to reach Neptune without a space ship. Now he's trying to conquer the rest of the universe while losing his mind and his voice.

This is a collection of tuneless wailings and Doctor Who effects. It should have been title Daleks For Breakfast or Disaster In Tibet.

Record Mirror was a British weekly pop music newspaper that ceased publication in 1991
