From CJMishellsan 05/14/2017 21:14
The Sky Is A Landfill may be the best song he ever wrote, or at least my personal favorite. Based on the first ten songs it sounds like Jeff was about to eclipse Grace and pass it by; carrying on with his wondrous musical evolution. The fact that these songs were considered unfinished or inferior recordings to Jeff astounds me. He was definitely a perfectionist. The second disc veers into more experimental demo-tape territory, but even then it's better than a lot of music out today. The final track ends with one of his live performances of "Satisfied Mind"; another cover that he completely makes his own and is even better than the famous Hallelujah cover, in my mind.

First disc is strong and shows a general direction in which Buckley's sound could have progressed post-Grace. However, the 2nd disc is quite underdeveloped.

They should've made this album limited to Disk 1 only.

And made Disk 2 a separate B-sides album.

Testament of an absolute genius of Nineties. I wonder what he could create if still alive...

Despite its incompletion, 'Sketches of My Sweetheart the Drunk' is a very worthy follow-up to 'Grace'. It's bold, daring, and yet somehow, still maintains that wonderful, beautiful quality that was always a constant throughout his music. Tim, his father, would've been very proud.

He didn't want to release it but it's all we got following his death. It stands up despite this. I haven't listened to this album in 13 years ..... It just makes me sad still !

It's not "Grace", but there's a lot of really cool stuff going on on this album.
