Lorca is a considerably more uncompromising, daring effort than Tim's often described masterpiece 'Starsailor'. Although Starsailor was Tim's definitive album in terms that it encapsulated his avant-garde, jazz and south-american rhythm exercises on one album, Lorca is for my money a better album. The title track Lorca is Tim using his voice like a low register trumpet over an ominous keyboard piece. This track really emphasises the range, depth and quality of Tim's voice (especially if you compare it to the joyously pure final chorus of 'Once I Was' off Dream Letter'68) and the lyrics are simple but heartwrenchingly pure. 'Anonymous Proposition' is one of the most honest, sad, beautiful ballads that will ever be written; simply Tim exploring the lower reaches of his incredible voice against wonderfully sparse flourishes of guitar and the more prominant bass. It is like having your innnermost hopes and fears on love being sung back to you by a voice that sounds as old as love and pain itself. It is simply a wonderfully brave, open display of musicality and lyrical intimacy which can only be equalled by the great pieces of classical music, opera and jazz. A "movement" that frankly was too good for the world of popular music. 'I had a talk with my woman' is a wonderful jazz-folk song that could have been off 'BLUE AFTERNOON' (reissue please) with a pretty melody and warm vocal from Tim. 'Driftin' shows why Tim had the most versatile voice in the pop-rock-folk world when he sings the word 'all' for 13 seconds and wrings every drop of emotion from the word until it falls deflated to the studio floor until he sings it again. To be honest i dont care for the last track except as a vocal and guitar jam. If you dont love Tim Buckley i dont recommend this as your first tim record. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Lorca 4 Jan 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Old tim just seemed to love music, loved playing it, hearing it, learning all about it and just running around, seeing where he'd end up. Lorca is one of my favourite tim records but then i prefer the long songs he did generally. If you want to talk about it in the worst possible pub conversation musicwriter way (and we should all know better than that) then i guess it finds our hero half way along the road from happysad to starsailor. Whatever, that road was the bravest anyone walked in poppy-rock-world and still is - beefheart is robert johnson next to him (back in the pub) and when you look at those records tim put out until starsailor, you can't help thinking that he was like a little miles davis or something, all curious and mad and never standing still - but on a much smaler scale ok i'll admit. Anyway it must be weird that that tribute record is doing better than one of tims own records especially one as good as this. don't buy it because of jeff or all the newspaper stories or the book but because in the biggest sections of all our record stores tim is the bravest and one of the best. dig in xxx

Until recently Tim Buckley was a name I'd heard a few albums by in passing. I like to experiment with music new to me, recently I've been experimenting with Tim Buckley. This album is harder work than Happy/Sad but comes from the same direction, it simply takes the development further. His voice is used very much in the way a jazz musician might use his horn. Soaring & coasting above the shimmering, at times near psychedelic backdrop. Its adventurous music. Its hard to imagine any contemporary artist producing an album anything like this (John Martyn maybe?). These are not 'conventional' songs, they sound more like improvisations. I never saw him play live, only live in a TV studio, on form he must have been astonishing. Is there any point in comparing father & son? I suppose they shared some characteristics, the voice being the obvious one. I did see Jeff play live & thought he lacked sufficient light & shade.
If you are willing to experiment buy this album, if not get the latest Van Morrison, come to think of it maybe Van should have a listen to this then throw away the safety net.......
