I am fascinated with the music of Tim Buckley. Buckley has an unusual, rich, caramelly voice. He hits his high notes with a wail and such intensity, in a way that sounds, dare I say almost feminine? It's really cool. The album is full of high energy songs, sexy, bluesy concoctions with hodgepodge instrumentation including organs, congas, sax, guitar, also strings?! Love it. The horndog lyrics haven't aged especially well, but I'm not bothered by it. I'm actually impressed how sexually open the lyrics are. I can't even imagine how they were received at the time. Fave songs: Make It Right, Sweet Surrender, Get on Top
39 minutes is a long time to scream “I have sex”. Surprised there’s no cleverly innuendo named track ‘Lick my tube’
I was going to give it 2 stars, but then 'Devil Eyes' made me want to puke.
Great album, love the guitar and congas on these songs, very groovy. Standout tracks: Sweet Surrender, Devil Eyes, Hong Kong Bar
Enjoyed the bluesy 70s feel to the music. Prompted me to learn more about this artist online. Another who died too young. And, same for his son!
He seemed like a shit person but I really liked the funky-ass album. Don’t emulate your heroes, kids.
Well. Little Timmy got all drugged out and horned up since the last time we heard from him, didn’t he? Haha. Good Lord! I did not expect to hear this dude speaking in tongues and talking about licking toe jam on this record, but I wholeheartedly approve. 👍 (But what’s up with all the double artist dipping on this “random” generator so far? We’ve still got 900-some records to go. Spread this shit out!)
I'm not a huge Tim Buckley fan. I like some of his earlier records much more than this one. The singing style here begins to grate on me after awhile. It's like some kind of carnival ride throwing you about this way and that. I find it exhausting. I also find the whole raunchy thing he's got going off-putting.
I hate it
Not my bag
do not like
Fuck that Springsteen shit
Essentially, did not listen. First tune failed to get my attention in the very least.
- more instruments than neils young :harvest: but still boring....
Not my favourite.
Terrible vocal style - hated it
No conozco el trabajo de este cantante, pero se nota como un album de transicion.
This is gooood
Great album. Each song needs a little bit to get going but all worth it
Really great album. Surprised more people weren't listening to this in the 70s (imo the most boring period of rock). Funky, sexy, funny and rockin. Some of the sexier lyrics havent aged very well but I think that adds to the art and showing of the times.
Great album will definitely be added to my rotation
V good rocky album
5/5 - I had heard of Tim Buckley but never listened to any of his catalog. This is a great album.
Muy bueno, en serio.
I had never heard of this guy, but wow, this was fun as hell.
Funk-rock. Me ha gustado bastante. Venga, le pongo un 5.
Fedt rock album og den gamle. Desværre lyder sangeren ret Adam Sandler agtig irriterede. Jeg med en anden sanger kunne den måske hvad været 5 stjerner
Good R&B / funk for a white guy
psychedelic rock, progressive jazz Dream Letter (1990) + Blue Afternoon
Quirky album with some real Sing-along tunes. Great for a sunny afternoon listening. Reminds of Jerry Reed in song composition and sound.
This is pretty cool stuff. Love the rambling rock, sexually charged lyrics, occasional bluesyness, saxophones, and I even think I heard some bongos - its a full serving. Very surprised to read that Tim Buckley was most popular in the Twin Cities - “getting substantial play on KQRS”. Wikipedia also has an excellent descriptive that sums up the careers of Tim Buckley and many aspiring, yet unnoticed, talents: “Like most of his other albums, ‘Greetings from L.A.’ did not sell well”. 3.5 stars, and rounding up for the local history.
Nooit eerder iets van Tim Buckley geluisterd; Erg tof
Not something I’ve listened to before and I liked it!
What a great voice. Gone too soon.
This was great! Really enjoyed it, funky bluesy bar rock! VINYL purchase coming up! Cracking album!
Buen estilo, buena voz, buen disco que se me hizo muy corto.
YASS TIM BUCKLEY, let’s gooooo I did not have time to focus, rly but I know I will come back jeszcze słucham ale dam czwórkę, bo pewnie będzie mi się podobać więcej na rym
A nice, easy listen. A little swing, a little soul, and other things that I can't quite name. If Jim Morrison and Janis Joplin had ever collaborated, I think that the result would have been something like this.
I liked the album. Never heard or heard of this artist. 3.5
A lot of energy going on here, most of it good. Nicely put together songs, powerful vocals. His verbal 'solos' are a bit odd though.
Really cool album. More gritty than Goodbye and Hello. Talented songwriter.
Andy was teaching me about Tim Buckley before we started and I really enjoyed the phrase “sex funk”. This was a fun album!
Again, I am a simple gal with simple wishes, and if I can dance to it then I will enjoy it. I can most certainly dance to this, and so I enjoy it a lot! Tim Buckley's voice is so bloody good and the instrumentals are so FULL WOO
4/5. Tim Buckley has a funny voice 👍
I never listened to a Tim Buckley album before...not at all what I expected. Figured it would be some quiet, NickDrakeesque folk songs sung by a plaintive fragile whispy voiced loner. Imagine my surprise...this album rocks. What a voice ol' Tim has, I see from where his sons talent comes. I like this album, I'm on my third play in 24 hours, and like it more each time. 4 🌟
Estranged father of Jeff Buckley. Died at 28 of heroin overdose. Kinda funky and strange. Interesting fun sound.
My first thought when I saw this one was “ANOTHER singer-songwriter, yay…” HOWEVER, I thought this one was pretty good, there’s some nice instrumentation here. The most enjoyable songs on this record were ‘devils eyes’ and ‘make it right’ though there were a number of good songs here. The lyrics are… interesting. Not the type you’d want to play out loud next to a busy window (which I found out the hard way). The singing is nice though. Overall I’d give this one a 3.75 stars.
It's surprisingly good!
Odakle ljubav prema Timčeku? Bome, prije svega, svestran je. Ovo nisam očekivao da će snimit, da će napravit, ali ipak je! Bome si nas napustio jako rano, šteta velika.
Great blues stuff straight to the soul. Started as a 3 but rose to a 3.5 and settled at a 4.
Wow what a skilled guitarist and musician, the playing on Hong Kong Bar is absolutely mesmerising!! I really loved this album. There were a few outdated elements like the fetishisation of black women in Move with Me which is otherwise a great track. This was totally acceptable at the time in the 70s though (may even have been seen as a good thing) but it does just stick out and feel a little uncomfortable listening now...
Whats not to love about Tim Buckley apart from the fact that he is no longer with us to give us those searing blues compositions? Love "Nighthawking" and "Sweet Surrender". Classic Album rightfully on the list.
Cet album de l'imposture Buckley est extrêmement convaincant. La voix du faux Buckley est en effet des plus impressionnantes, et la musicalité n'est pas sans rappeler la musique du réel Buckley. Fort heureusement, nous ne sommes pas dupes au sein du générateur, et n'accordant à cette copie qu'un 4/5, là où le réel Buckley parvenait à aller chercher la note suprême.
Such a soulful voice! Not sure its my kind of music, but it's really good anyway.
Thrusts AF, but pretty good musically
Gets a bit weird at times, but enjoyable. Hit to miss ratio is not the best. Best track: Make It Right
Kul æra og stil, men låten er litt både og synes jeg. 3/5
Nice, chill old rock.
Some of the songs were great, but others are a bit underwhelming. I think I enjoyed Sweet Surrender, Hong Kong Bar, and Make It Right the most. If the rest of them would be as good as those, it would be a 4 but, 3.5 down to 3 for me.
Lekker soul albumpje, niks mis mee
enjoyable. but that's as far as i'd go.
Folk, rock suave, blues...
The album is a great jam for instrument aficionados, but average from a songwriting perspective. I’d be more interested in what his folk output was.
Ok, but not made for me
Quite enjoyed the one-two punch of Tim Buckley this app has delivered up. I think I might prefer this one to Starsailor. Okay, nobody is confusing him for George Clinton, but as a blue-eyed soul cut this ain't half bad
Twijfelgeval. Ik houd van de energie op deze plaat, van blues en van Tim Buckley's stem, maar ik vind dat hij zijn stem voor blues een beetje vervelend gebruikt. Daarom geen 4 maar een 3.
Het is wel duidelijk dat Jeff er niet eentje van de melkboer is, maar dat hij zijn vocale capaciteiten van papa Tim heeft. Dit album is voor mij iets te experimenteel - Tim heeft mooiere ingetogenere albums gemaakt. Maar het is ook ergens wel fascinerend om te horen.
Heel wat anders dan zoonlief later deed. Maar wat een energie. Af en toe zelfs een zweem van The Doors. Ik vond dit best wel tof!
some crazy stuff in here....some good some not so good - had to skip "get on top" as....WTF?
A little bit of jazz, some R&B and a heap of funk. BT: Move With Me, Get on Top, Nighthawkin'
not keen on the voice - songs are fine
Buckley brings a blend of Soul, R&B, Rock, and Folk all into one unique album. This record welcomes you and invites you to experience something new and refreshing. Although it lacks any major ear worms, it is a notable effort that warrants deeper listening.
It was better than I thought it was going to be. Sounded kinda like Led Zeppelin mixed with Bluesy Folk? I enjoyed it, but probably won’t ever listen to it again.
Pretty darn sex funky.
The album is quite funky and neat. Though I don't see anything too special about it. The singer's manner of singing is interesting.
It's fine, but it's like Robert Plant without LZ. Vocals are too much for me personally. Maybe I'd like the folk-era Buckley better.
Nun ja, irgendwie 70ies... in den 60ern klang er aber besser...
Fun 70's sound with a bit more funk than I've heard in albums from a similar time frame. Nothing super compelling here, but a fun listen. 3.0
Not a big fan of most of the lyrics and songs, but make it right is GG playlist
Was upbeat and funky so the music was good for the most part. Probably better without the lyrics.
Didn’t really make an impact. But didn’t offend.
Plätschert so dahin. Hong Kong Bar ganz netter song.
Really enjoyed this one. It was over before I knew it though, which means it didn't stand out enough and probably shouldn't get 4 stars
Good album. Able to understand its importance and influence, but not quite my style.
Ihan pätevä levy
Kuulosti kuin Rollarit ja Aerosmith oltais vedetty tehosekottimessa smoothieks. Aika kitkerää... 2 liian vähän ja kolme liikaa.
I nice little album of bluesy-country-rocky songs.
Ended up as decent background sound.
An enjoyable listen, a much more interesting album than I expected. would revisit
Pabbi Jeff Buckley. Vel áhlustanlegt folk rock með blúsívafi.
Prefer his son but not a bad listen.
odd mix of jam and blues
First, this album is offensive and toxic. Second, a huge part of the 1001 albums are the US bluesy bands and performers which starts to bore me.
Gaanz schlechte 3.
The best of this album IMO: - Devil Eyes It was okay. 2.8/5
Neke su mi bile dobre neke bi odma preskočila. Al ove koje su mi bile dobre su mi super, volim tog malo country štiha nez zašto mi ulipša svaku pismu.. Ili se to uopće tako ne zove al ne znam kako bi drugačije opisala taj štih. Sve u svemu okej!
Sounds like Tim likes to do it all with his big ole mamas! And everyone else! I especially enjoyed Hong Kong bar.
This was pretty good! I've heard 4 Tim Buckley albums before (really enjoyed 3 of them) but hadn't got to this one, and it was verrrry different to what I was used to Wikipedia described this as the first move to Buckley's 'sex funk era' and... yeah that sums it up really A lot of it is really fun and there are some great grooves, but some of the songs outstay their welcome. It was also quite unlucky for this to come up in the project so shortly after Let's Get It On, which basically does the same thing in a more effective way
Very west coast, not your usual Buckley, not bad..
Vill gilla det, men han är lite sexist??? cancellerad.
Höjer sig från en tvåa pga bra gung på vissa låtar, skeptisk i övrigt
Actually liked this more than I expected to. I'm not a big fan of what I've heard of his post-Goodbye & Hello stuff, but this is the first I've heard this album in full and sexy R&B Tim actually worked for me quite well.
Sembra Mick Jagger con un sound più funk e fricchettone. Bello, ampio, non troppo però. 3/4
Greeting from ZGB
Očekivala sam nešto drugačije. Bilo je dobro al ne i ko i goodbye and Hello
Well this was a bit of a grower, quite enjoyed some of the more bluesy and orchestral ones. Its not peak Tim Buckley, I have to say - but I did enjoy it.
Some decent 70s bluesy rock with dated lyrics.
Solid 70’s blues feel, but also weird lyrics, that do not do it for me. Gets boring
A few of these were bops but I wasn't crazy about the album as a whole (interestingly, my two least favorites were the ones with the most streams on Spotify. Although those were also probably the most musically interesting ones, but I guess I just like boring stuff)
That is a sad image of Los Angeles, but accurate for the mid-1970s. It's not *all* smog, some of it is dirt in the air from the Owens Valley, blowing down over the city. Tim Buckley feels like a poser. Maybe that's wrong, maybe he's the real deal. Dead at 28. His song Jeff, who I should appreciate for popularizing the Leonard Cohen song, made it another two years to die at 30. He never met his dad. Okay, I take it back. Not a poser, seems real close to the real deal. Pretty good. Glad I heard it before I died.
I like more his son Jeff
Le principal problème de cet album est que Tim Buckley nous envoie des nouvelles de ses vacances à Los Angeles alors même qu'on ne lui a rien demandé.
Pleasant songwriting. I find Tim generally unremarkable although I'd happily listen to his work for an extended period of time without complaint.
Decent listen, elements of blues and country
Beetje standaard rock'n'roll uit Amerika. Ik vind het niet veel bijzonders, alhoewel het nummer "Make It Right" wel lekker klinkt. ***
dont mind when it is on but it's nothign special
It was... fine. Buckley seems interesting enough as an artist and person, but if I end up liking this album it will be as a grower.
Not a fan at all, background music was the best
It's always a bad sign when I'm already waiting for an album to end shortly after it begins. I'm not sure why I clashed with this one so hard, but I'm just not into it at all. It's simultaneously boring and exhausting 2/5
Eh, this album didn't really do it for me. It had some OK funky grooves, but as a whole, I didn't feel very moved. Might be worthy of another listen when I'm in a more funky mood...
it's fine but just meh...
Not bad. Some weird ass folk music. But not super memorable for me.
He paints a picture of a womanizing sleazeball. Found his voice rather annoying. I did enjoy the instrumentation and liveliness of the songs.
honestly, the most interesting part of this album was hearing it defined as his 'sexfunk' period. Music became forgettable quickly. A musician getting really horny and into drugs after becoming famous aint that novel.
Highlights: Get on top, Make It Right Lowlights: Hong Kong Bar Get On Top is a funky and a quite enjoyable listen and Make It Right does just that and feels "bigger" than it should. The rest is either too spastic or "jammy" or maybe it's just too avant-garde for me. I don't really get the appeal here...Of the late Buckleys, I prefer Jeff.
Meh. It was fine but I'm starting to expect more than that...
Not enthralled **
He, ik had hier wel zin in. Vind ik het na een paar nummers toch wel tegenvallen, Jammer!
Quite mediocre throughout, nothing stands out, nothing is innovative or interesting. We've all heard this kind of thing a million times, and it doesn't get any better here. It's not even interesting enough to dislike with any conviction.
Not horrible but didn't stand out to me and I wasn't a fan of the voice
So weird, but I got a tim buckley song recommended after the album that was awesome
não dei muita bola
very boring soul i am SNOOZING
öh öh öh kommer inte ihåg :S men var väl okej
Sweet surrender was annoying Didn’t like his vocal delivery Definitely not my thing, which is surprising given who his influences are - not as good as The Doors Did I add to library? No
Very generic, like Billy Joel but worse. A couple good moments, but not enough for a playlist or relisten
It was okay.
It my have been my mood that day, but it was a forgettable album for me. I already forgot most of how it sounded. Wasn’t too impressed.
2/5. The album seems fine. This was my first time hearing it. Didn't know any of the songs. The sound of the album didn't 'grab me' and none of the songs stood out to me. Of course, this is common for me when I first hear an album. There are plenty of times when the album gets better with time. So, I'm open to this one and think I could grow to like it more. Damn Herione. I hate to read when anyone talented is taken from us too soon.
This is not my music. It sounds like a lot of rock-blues musical cliches and the lyrics constantly bounce between stupid and misogynistic... doesn't really hold up over the years. Make It Right was slightly tolerable.
Generally pleasant. Nothing too experimental for quirky.
Some nice tunes and singing. Unlikely to revisit.
I got bored listening to this. Some songs had a good beat and tune but others just kind of got lost.
This was decent
hmmm it’s cool? just don’t rly like tim’s voice very much. very groovy tho. if i liked his voice more this would be a three
Strang mix decisions and questionable vocals male this one I can't recommend. His voice grated after one track.
Still don't enjoy his music. It's beter than the previous album, but lyrically dubious and I don't like his voice.
All the subtlety of a sledgehammer. I bet any money he was a terrible lover in real life, selfish and inconsiderate of his partner's needs. The music isn't unlistenable, but the lyrics are so immature and the artist is a loathsome piece of shit. Jeff Buckley is a far superior musician and artist compared to his deadbeat father.
Clearly talented, but not my type of music.
Have I heard of Tim Buckley? or am I confusing the name with Jeff Buckley? Some of the music is okay, but I was tempted to skip most of the tracks either for the lyrics or strange non-lyric vocals. I was glad this album wasn't any longer than it was.
I had no idea what to expect given this artist and his music are all new to me, and it has some pretty fun moments. Some great grooves here and there, very bluesy-folksy-funky, and very much early-70s rootsy rock. I don't love it, but it's not bad. I got curious so down the Wikipedia rabbit hole I went, and I learned Tim Buckley is Jeff Buckley's father, and Tim and Jeff both died super-young, Tim at 28 (OD) and Jeff at 30 (swimming accident, no drugs or alcohol in his system). That made me sad. I see that Chuck Rainey plays bass on this album so I read up on him, too. He's still around at age 81 and the list of amazing artists and bands with whom he's played is staggering. Chuck Rainey is incredible. Back to this album: the sound overall is a little too early 70s late-stage hippie for me (sorry, folks, I just don't like the sound of congas in rock all that much...if they had been sparingly used back then, I'm sure I would barely have noticed, but, dang, they invaded so many genres of music and, at least for me, it's a "No, thank you").
I've never heard of Tim Buckley, and this was not great. I never really got a sense of a grounded genre, and while shifting is sometimes interesting, this wasn't. Slightly bluesy but not satisfyingly so.
It's not my cup of tea, dig the funkiness of it, but that's pretty much it.
Nisam oduševljena, nije mi bilo lako slušljivo, vjerojatno sam trebala još jednom
Ne mislim da je losa glazba u smislu nekvalitetna, ali meni je baas bilo dosadno i znam da necu vise sama to ici slusati nikad
Musically interesting, lyrically silly
Non lo so, è un po' strano. Sto Tim Buckley mi sembra bello drogato.
First of all, the lyrics are a bit too horny on this one. The speaking in tongues bit is also weird and unnecessary. Furthermore, the music on this album isn’t groundbreaking in any way. It’s really just bluesed up folk guitar with a few superficial jazz elements. Again, nothing terribly influential
Not what I expected, I wouldn't know it was Jeff's dad. Some cool bluesy funk sounds but average songs
2/5 nothing memorable
Didn't really love this album. It soudned okay but the lyrics and content were a little weird. I love the concept of writing a song explaining why you cheated on your SO though, what a crazy idea
A range of influences are apparent on what seems to be a well made album. This, however, only seems to make it a bit irritating rather than interesting. Overall, it is a bit annoying and instantly forgettable. Rating: 2/5 Playlist track: Get on Top Date listened: 27/04/22
I have to give it to Tim; He's really into what he's doing. Unfortunately, that energy doesn't translate into a connection for me. The band is tight, and they do well with the music they've been given. They even get to stretch their legs a few times, in tracks like 'Devil Eyes'. But that isn't enough to offset the fact that Tim's vocals and lyrical delivery are just too awkward for me to hear past. Moreover, the characters he trying to convey and/or the stories he's trying to tell in each song, just don't seem believable as he depicts them. Nowhere is this more apparent than 'Get on Top' and 'Sweet Surrender'. I was literally cringing and tensed listening to 'Sweet Surrender', which was basically a 2-minute song followed by 4m44s of Tim's warbling and nasally improvisations. You figure that they would've learned from the previous track 'Get on Top', where there is a very apparent and abrupt cut around the 5m50s mark in and amongst a similar 4+ minute long outro. I will say that I was almost into 'Nighthawkin''... almost. All told, it feels like an attempt was made to make a gritty album that told the stories of hard worn lives in a big city, but what came through was more like a kid telling tall tales.
Dull as dishwater meat and potatoes early 70s songwriter-rock.
Fuck off, you small dick energy little cunt. Didn't even have the decency to die before breeding. 1/5.
