A efêmera e gigantesca passagem de Jeff Buckley. Nunca iremos saber o que foi perdido.

I mean, Jeff Buckley was like any other artist at the time, one of the few solo artists to have this much influence in so long time, the next one I can think of is, I don't know, David Bowie? Anyway Grace is his only album, It's like the work of his life and you can feel that on his singing.

Am I the only one who thinks that Dream Brother is the best song on this album?
By the way, Grace is a really solid recording

Fate was to determine that Jeff Buckley would only have one shot at recording a great album. That's all he needed.

I'm really not fond of Jeff Buckley. I don't like his voice, his attitude or his songwriting, but even I have to admit that this album does have some really good tracks on it. "Lover, You Should Have Come Over", "Dream Brother" and the first three tracks are really great, so there was obviously some talent here. As I said the first three tracks (while overproduced) are very good and the title track, "Grace", is utterly fantastic.

However, most of the other songs are quite boring and don't really merit mentioning, but two of the lesser tracks really do, the two covers to be precise. Buckley's cover of "Lilac Wine" is bland and one of the worst versions of the song but the true travesty here is his horrendous cover of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah", which I shall give it's own paragraph so, if you don't like to hear someone ramble on about something so minor, stop reading now.

Buckley utterly destroys this beautiful song, taking all emotion and meaning out of it and producing the worst cover of a song that has over 60 covers (well, the abysmal Cloverton version is ten times worse, but other than that). Buckley uses the song, he does not feel it nor does he convey the origional impact or create his own meaning, how someone can ruin a song so badly without changing the lyrics is beyond me. I genuinely don't understand why this version is so popular, here are the six best versions of the song, all of which are incomprehensibly better than Buckley's.
Number 1-Bob Dylan
Number 2-Regina Spector
Number 3-Rufus Wainwright
Number 4-John Cale
Number 5-KD Lang
Nimber 6-Leonard Cohen (AKA 'The best version')

Ok, I've finished my rant now.

In conclusion, the album has ups and downs (one major up and one major down anyway) and is worth owning. Just skip track 6.

This album is amazing. Buckley’s vocals are extraordinary and the whole album is so emotionally moving.

It's a shame he died so young but this is quite a gift to leave behind. He had nothing short of pure musical talent and every track on this album is a testament to that.

It's the best debut album of all time, at least in my eyes. So unfortunate that there was never a follow-up.

Fantastic album by Buckley and his band. Mixed with a lot of influences. Buckley does amazing renditions of covers such as Nina Simone's Lilac Wine or Leonard Cohen's iconic Hallelujah. His own songs hold on their own too and are so soothing!

Our hidden refugee from old Yugoslavia learned by listening to play this whole album on guitar. He enjoyed his life through this while hiding from our authorities. And it is truly a wonderful album
