This album further develops that which Lorca began,
but goes deeper into avant-garde experimentalism and free
album is NOT easy listening, it is extreme, but thats what
makes it great. This is music from inside. Deep, deep, deep
Buckley began using his voice as an instrument on Lorca
and he takes this idea much further on Starsailor,
yelping, wailing, moaning and screaming his way through.
most easily accessible tracks on the album are Moulin Rouge
which is a delicate, pretty little tune, though totally at
odds with the rest of the album. The hauntingly beautiful
Song To The Siren which despite being more conventional
in structure than other tracks, fits perfectly.
With the exception of the above mentioned two, the rest of
the album is a trip and a half. Manic vocals that are unsettling
to the point of being almost scary at times and then totally
beautiful at others. If chaos could be sung, it would sound
like this. True musical anarchy.
album is like the strangest dream you ever had, simultaneously
both terrifying and fantastic. Personally, I think this is
the bravest record I've ever heard. There is an incredible
rawness in this music, unlike anything I've heard before.
Love it or hate it, cut the bullshit. There's no denying,
this is as REAL as it gets.
