Wilson & Alroy’s Record Reviews
Buckley himself is in fine form, writing with uncharacteristic clarity and singing as powerfully and idiosyncratically as ever – just check out his wacky scat singing on “Devil Eyes” (which also recalls War). With just seven tracks and a lot of jamming and repetition, it’s not his best effort overall but does stand in fascinating contrast to his earlier efforts. […]

There it is, right there. Not too slow and not too fast. And it almost hurts because it’s so good. That’s Greetings From LAand that’s the best album the brilliant Tim Buckley ever produced. […]

The argument that this was all somehow a compromise or sellout doesn’t seem to entirely wash. While no doubt there were commercial pressures at play, given Buckley’s constant change from album to album it seems like he simply found something else to try, which he did with gusto. […]
