Truly stunning & beautiful
pemory | 01/15/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Just found this available for download a few weeks ago and I've been listening to it non-stop (okay, I take breaks for eating, sleeping, working, etc.). Not only do I love every note, but the tunes here continue to play in-my-head whenever I'm not listening to this beautiful, stunning album. It's the kind of rare music that sounds absolutely pure and directly from the heart. In addition, it's a sound that demonstrates what music can do and be (as opposed to the usual drivel played on the radio). Moreover, it's just a pleasure to listen to. I wish that more music were this good. Buy!"
Quietly Majestic
Wayne Dawson | New Zealand | 09/25/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The musical world is a much more interesting place thanks to the individualism of Tim Buckley. This gently hypnotic, quietly majestic album was a treasure to come across. Tim's poetic, lyrical line hangs suspended in the air like a fragile thread, supported by his own twelve string strumming, drums, xylophone and bass; the sparse, jazz tinged instrumentation is full of atmosphere that gives the cutting reality of his words a diffuse cushion to weigh upon. The modest beginnings of each song soon unfold into a panoramic vision.

Why Tim Buckley's recordings haven't been given the 24-bit remastering attention that was given to The Doors still amazes me. His music would benefit much from that as the recordings are good but his delivery is often soft. Blue Afternoon is a gem and as with all of Tim's work it needs to be remastered in it's original state without further delay."
