FOR SONGS TO NO ONE 1991-1992 (with Jeff Buckley):
"'Songs to No One' is priceless."
"Buckley and Lucas gracefully dance between sacred tradition and musical
adventure...a premonition of greatness."
"THE PAGE AND PLANT OF THE EAST VILLAGE....BUCKLEY AND LUCAS ELECTRIFIED NEW YORK CROWDS WITH THEIR FEARLESS SPINS THROUGH GREGORIAN PSYCHEDELIA, HAUNTED BRIT-FOLK, FREE-JAZZ ROMP AND SCRAPED-BONE BLUES...Lucas reiterated his mettle as a bold sympathetic guitarist, weaving loops of riff, scream and church-bell harmonics around Buckley like a crystal blanket."
"TWO ARTS BEAT AS ONE...MYSTERY WHITE BOY'S EARLY COLLABORATIONS WITH THE GUITARIST CAPTAIN BEEFHEART CALLED 'GENIUS'...Lucas' astonishing, febrile guitar-playing is a perfect expressive counterpoint to Buckey's untethered vocals."
"THEY DISPLAY A REMARKABLE COLLABORATIVE CHEMISTRY...Lucas splinters and coaxes atmospheric guitar parts, providing an instrumental trampoline that allows the singer to soar and improvise."
