    It's taken America a long time to come around to the magic of '60s/'70s troubadour Tim Buckley. During his tragically brief, incredibly prolific lifetime, Buckley proved to be a truly eclectic visionary, careening madly from folk-rock to boldly experimental work to quirky R&B and more. His unearthly, elastic tenor was a thing of rare beauty, as Buckley weaving his way through a song with the abandon of a rocker and the fluidity and grace of a jazzman. Buckley never broke through commercially, but his reputation has subsequently grown to impressive cult status. While he's long been revered in other countries, his homeland never even eked out a decent collection of his work until this two-disc marvel.
    Hardcore Buckley fans might complain that MORNING GLORY contains only one previously unreleased song (an enthralling "Song to the Siren" taken from a MONKEES episode), but they'd been catered to by a wealth of live and unreleased material becoming available in the previous few years. For anyone just discovering Buckley, or simply desirous of one definitive compilation, this is a gem. In the sunny folk-jazz of "Strange Feelin'," the eerie artsong "Song to the Siren," and the lascivious R&B of "Hong Kong Bar," MORNING GLORY portrays a brilliant, mercurial artist whose destiny would remain sadly unfulfilled. This collection's one flaw is the absence of Buckley's most avant garde works, but it still contains an embarrassment of riches.

  • Critic Reviews
    Rolling Stone (3/29/01, p.63) - 3.5 stars out of 5 - "...Buckley experimented to the end, sometimes brilliantly...sometimes to his enduring embarrassment, but always with a consequences-be-damned conviction."
    Entertainment Weekly (3/30/01, p.69) - "...Tim had a voice in a million: He sounded like an angel on earth..." - Rating: A
    Q (5/01, p.129) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...Explains why Tim is revered as one of American rock's most unique talents....Most of his best songs are here..."
    Alternative Press (5/01, pp.68-9) - 3 out of 5 - "...Effectively maps Buckley's musical vagaries....amply proving that not only was his vocal prowess peerless, but his ability to move listeners emotionally was even more impressive..."
    Mojo (Publisher) (4/01, p.116) - "...Those who've never heard the man couldn't ask for a more balanced introduction..."
