I had a busy day of listening today. I had a half dozen albums to relisten to. This one included. And to be honest I just wasn't overwhelmingly excited about listening to Tim Buckley. He had never yet clicked with me. Meaning he had never really connected with me or illuminated for me some sort of realization of the greatness of his music or the coolness or the style or virtuosity, etc. It just had never straightened into a clear concept in my mind which I liked. I had listened to this album and a few of his later (stranger and more experimental) albums.

But I just made myself push play to at least recollect what i thought of this album. And the coolest thing happened. I finally "Got It". I mean I finally heard the sheer creative audacity of what Buckley had done with this album. I found myself overcome by the emotions he was expressing, I heard and understood what he was doing with his somewhat over the top musical waves. The palate with which he paints this album is immense. There are strange effects on many things, and guitars, and keyboards and symphonies and big crescendos and there is, of course, his vocals. His vocals were what finally worked for me. They just are all over the place and all in service of the songs. His voice has always been mentioned as a game changer in many ways, but I never liked them much. But here they really work, he sounds like he is almost bursting with an unimaginable amount of emotion and fire and sadness. And as he sings he is releasing these sounds and these feelings and its oft-times glorious.

And yes later albums are definitely pushed way way up my "To Listen" list. I believe its generally understood that he got more and more out there and experimental as he went along in his short life. And I do recall "Lorca" and "Starsailor" being quite strange and beautiful. I am very very excited to listen to them for later songwriter lists (1969-1971 will probably HAVE to be top 15s at this rate cuz man there is a lot of great stuff coming up to listen to for those years). Its amazing to think he became somehow MORE innovative. Cuz listening to this today just blew my mind in how incredibly unique and forward-thinking the whole sound and flow of the album was. I mean you can hear traces of it in Fred Neil, but this is just next level wild and ahead of its time. Its a goodie.

Grade: 9.2/10

Great album, I enjoy this a lot more than his more experimental stuff (Lorca, etc). I Once Was is awesome and gorgeous, and the title track is an epic

Huge improvement on the debut. Excellent songs/lyrics from a brilliant contemporary of Dylan and Cohen. Possibly Buckley's best.

The title track might be the greatest lyrics I have ever heard.

'Goodbye and hello' stands out from a year which was full of original, creative masterpieces. The album has unusual, experimental songwriting yet the songs still remain melodic and catchy. Tim Buckley's amazing voice adds an even more plus to the whole.
This is the type of music I listen to when I want to forget time and space for while.

Very much '67 and yet quite unique. Cool songwriting not quite in line with what others were doing, punctuated by a monstrously strong voice. I admit it's imperfect and not for everyone, but if it connects with you as it did me you could find a new favorite.

People talk a lot about Phychedelic music, but they seem to confuse garage rock with psychedelia. Try this music. Tim Buckley at his most melodic, and restrained. Tim sometimes went for vocal pyrotechnics. This time he stuck to the music. It is trippy.
