I’m only two tracks in, and can already say with great confidence that this album is a stone cold masterpiece.

Incredible vision and incredible execution. This album is straight from the soul of Tim Buckley. It's slow, long and minimalist which sounds boring but it's worth it. It took me a few listens to crack it but since I've finally got it, I can't get enough. They are working with like 5 instruments on the entire album and they're still able to convey every emotion they are trying to evoke near-perfectly. There are a few parts that could use some polish but I think it actually goes a long way to add to the albums authenticity. The songs build and build until Tim is sitting in a room with you and you can feel what he's feeling. The aren't too many other albums out there that use silence as much or as effectively as this one. I love every song and Driftin' is one of my new favorite songs ever.

Honestamente no entiendo porque este álbum está tan mal valorado. ¿Que es muy raro? sí vaya, pero hay muchísimos discos más extraños que este y sin embargo más queridos también; ¿que es muy oscuro, claustrofóbico, depresivo, desesperante?
Bueno, de eso no le veo nada. A mí me parece sencillamente hermoso, apabullante, y escalofriante en cierto modo muy extrañamente cálido.

Uno de mis favoritos de todos los tiempos (quizás mi favorito), un disco que, si no es el mejor álbum de jazz folk que haya escuchado, no sé lo que sea; tal vez simplemente no tiene parangón.

I can't put into words how much I hated this record. I gave it a second listen and it didn't get much better. I'm sorry, maybe I lack sensitivity or something. I just didn't get it. At all. I found it incredibly annoying.

Very different, abstract, and reminds me of Daniel Johnston's work. Its just out there. It is an enjoyable listen.

Housed within thick walls of tension, Lorca presents a claustrophobic experience not unlike the crippling feeling of manic depression.

This album makes me feel feelings that I never knew I had. Like... any.

The sound on 'Lorca' is skeletal and intimate, a dense dark dreamlike exploration and expansion of the consciousness and probe into the dark psychic depths of the mind. The tracks are long and tense that exude expressions of depression that chill and exhaust a sadness that rummages through bottomless chasms. It is as if Buckley is drifting in a conscious coma. The music floats in the huge spaces, without borders and shape: a cloud of notes that turns endlessly in an infinite void.

It could be the most daring, I'd give you that.
