Just wondered if anyone out there has bought this pressing, and if so what are your opinions of the sound reproduction.
Thanks.

I would also like to know the same. If anybody has it I would be very grateful for an opinion. I'm an original pressing guy really but some albums such as this simply out of my price range and do not like most repressing I have heard, the ones from analogue sources are fine but remastered no thanks. My real complaint of the record companies is that the source is very rarely stated. They are just banging anything out and quality control is often seemingly non existant. Phew, feel better know for that little rant. Anybody agree though?

I've two different vinyl pressings on Straight and they are both distorted. Was this intentional? A bad recording? If so, it is one of the worst I have ever heard.

I think there's nothing else like "Starsailor" in the entire Buckley discography... Even the rather inaccessible "Lorca" doesn't prepare to THIS, his most avant-garde LP by far ! There are bits of free-jazz, epileptic funk, hallucinated chorales (listen to "jungle fire" !), & of course Buckley's voice which has never been so free... "Starsailor" (the song) is kinda "musique concrète" for voice & tape manipulation, closer to Berio or Ligeti than rock or folk.
But the songs are short, and there is a rhythmic fever & an orgiastic feeling, especially on side 2, that make an "easier" listening than the morose "Lorca" with its 6 to 10 mn songs.... and of course there's "Song to the siren" !

Okay, I'm not going to claim some 'higher ground' as an arbiter of musical truth. I'm not going to say that I "get" this album and give it a 10/10 as I've seen many music reviewers do.
Honestly, I don't love it, and think that it can be pretty hard to listen to. …But that's not to say that he didn't have something remarkable going on here. Where most vocalists would emit what resemble hunger pangs and confused wailing in an arena like this, Tim's astounding register hits every note with an emotive composure hardly ever seen with such clarity. It's captivating to hear the product of an artist so unbound and freewheeling.
Intense, beautiful at times, and thoroughly different, this album is an absolute trip.

Tim moves away from language into a whole other world of speaking in tongues over the course of this album. There are twists and turns and banshee wails but when it gels this album just ROCKS in a free jazz/ folk/ rock mashup. Full of beauty and bewilderment in equal measures, you dig. Abominable that it is not currently available on CD.
