Review

After the lackluster response to his groundbreaking early '70s albums, Lorca, Blue Afternoon, and Starsailor, Tim Buckley went back to the drawing board. His first attempt at a comeback was the funky, accessible, Greetings from L.A., and his second was Sefronia. This 11-track album did nothing to rescue his critical reputation. It's clear from the outset that Buckley is not in peak form. Apparently suffering from a cold, his voice isn't at his best and this collection of ballads is made even more frustrating by the occasional flashes of inspiration. The tracks, which include an interesting choice of covers (Fred Neil's "Dolphins" and Tom Waits's "Martha"), are too deeply submerged in pop producer Denny Randell's slick production. When Buckley's ramshackle muse does hang together (the evocative "Quicksand" and the sweet "I Know I'd Recognize Your Face") we're almost in Happy Sad territory, but, bar the covers, these songs aren't worthy of that brilliant voice. --Reuben Dessay
