Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Well, to be perfectly honest, no he doesn't. Jimmy Gnecco has incredible vocal range and excellent songwriting skills - just like the late, great Jeff, but there the comparison ends. To me (a huge Buckley fan), Gnecco sounds much more like Bono or even Scott Walker in his deeper tones. Believe me, this boy can sing and if you get the chance to catch them live, don't miss it!
In a world of boy bands and quirky indie pop, it's so nice to get a good old fashioned dose of genuine anguish! This is the kind of stuff for staring out of a window on a grey, rainy day to. You know, when it feels GOOD to feel melancholy. The opening track is called Drowning, with a chorus that goes "Maybe today, today we die" and that about sets the scene for the whole CD. IT is totally weird, but for all the tortured lyrics, there is hope in them. My particular favourite is Meet Me In The Tower. He sings "I am like a girl, soft inside" - takes a real man to carry that off with conviction!
I just ADORE this CD and there isn't a track on it that you will want to skip over. On the first play I was a little unsure, but since then I have played it over and over and love it more and more.
My only criticism of Distorted Lullabies is that it is a bit too slickly produced for my taste. I prefer a little more rawness - especially in a first CD. But then again, with a producer on board like Steve Lillywhite, how can I really complain? If this is what Ours can do for a first offering, boy, do we have a treat in store for any further releases!

seriously.
this is an amazing album and it's annoying that people are like 'but it's not like jeff buckley'. does that matter?
both j.buckley and gnecco have extremely powerful voices, but i think gnecco explores emotions with much more conviction than jeff ever did.
i wish people would stop comparing them though.
jeff really isn't that good when you listen to his father who has an AMAZING voice.

anyway this album is amazing. the best songs are meet me in the tower and dancing alone.

get it. seriously.

Contrary to popular belief I thought this band sounded more like Muse than Jeff Buckley. I really liked this album and thought that the songs which stood out most were Dancing Alone and I'm Not a Monster. You must buy this cd, you know you want it!

This band is unfortunately nothing like Jeff Buckley if you've been recommended that it is. They're more like a cross between U2 and radiohead. If your an avid Buckley fan you'll find this music bland.

Ours: Distorted Lullabies 21 May 2001
By Rob - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
An incredible CD is hard to come by these days. But OURS has succeeded in recording an amazing debut. It's hard not to notice a resemblance in Jimmy Gnecco's voice to such greats as Jeff Buckley, Thom Yorke, & Bono. And the songs on the album at times recall an early Radiohead, but nevertheless, a great song is just that and Jimmy sings them all with extreme emotion.
OURS: DISTORTED LULLABIES, is a laid back album with catchy melodies and great musical textures. Highlights include: 'Dizzy', 'Dancing Alone' & 'Fallen Souls'.
The album is full of amazing songs and it was the first single 'Sometimes' that grabbed my attention. Since then, I've had the opportunity of catching an acoustic show of the band. They are by far one of the better new bands out there. I just hope that more bands like this get the recognition they deserve.

Comparisons can be a compliment 4 Dec. 2004
By Jeff Hodges - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Several years ago, this album was released with just enough hoopla to let you know that it was there if you were paying attention. You may have heard "Sometimes" on an indie radio show of some sort, but if you blinked you probably missed it. If you did it would be a crying shame. Distorted Lullabies is a fantastically well-written and melancholy trip through loneliness and isolation.

The indie radio show that introduced me to the project described Ours' sound as a cross between Jeff Buckley and Radiohead. Today I still think that this is a relatively apt description if one understands the difference between "The Bends" and "Hail to the Thief". "Distorted Lullabies" immediately recalls the euro-rock sound of early Radiohead and Coldplay, but also brings to mind the eerie feeling that Buckley is being somehow supernaturally channeled through lead singer and songwriter Jimmy Gnecco. To compare Gnecco to Buckley is obvious, but I would also like to throw in a healthy dose of Bono's tone with a little Freddie Mercury falsetto thrown in for flavor. Grown-up fans of the Cure and other depression-charged bands will no doubt be attracted to Ours.

However, Ours distinguishes themselves from their gloom-rock predecessors in the same way that Buckley did; with a wildly passionate delivery that transcends the immediate impression that the lyrics relate.

For example, several years ago, while on a tour of Europe with my family, I was feeling particularly uncomfortable with my American identity. In Germany, I left my hotel on a solitary walk with Ours on my discman and the phrase "Ein bier, bitte" on my lips. After taking a curious left turn I found myself in a beautifully wooded area on a solitary walk through what could have been Little Red Riding Hood's "Path of Nails." The track "Fallen Souls" screamed out to me in the woods that day in a way that I still cannot explain.

Even so, five stars is very difficult to hand out when comparing "Distorted Lullabies" to its influences. It really is a fantastic album, but it is not quite "The Joshua Tree", "Night at the Opera", or, even more immediately, Jeff Buckley' now-classic "Grace". However, fans of Gnecco's influences cannot help but be moved by his passion and conviction.

The lowdown: Like Phish was to the Grateful Dead, Jimmy Gnecco and Ours are the obvious heirs to Jeff Buckley's legacy. For those of us that miss him, Ours is a pretty good-tasting placebo, but is in no way to be confused with the real thing. If you already have "Grace", you will most likely come to tears over this recording.

Filling the void Buckley left. 7 Jun. 2001
By Dangerous Soybean - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Browsing at Target today, I wandered into the music section, thinking to myself "They don't have anything but rap-rock and pop". I was about to leave, when I heard an extraordinary noise coming from the TV's they show music videos on. Like everyone else said, Jimmy Gneco does bear a FREAKY resemblance to Jeff Buckley, and when he sings he sounds EXACTLY like Jeff. The band plays both hard and soft, too. So I was glad to see from other reviews that I wasn't just thinking wishfully. I normally don't buy CDs on whims, and I'm wary of new artists- I'm a bit of a music snob. But it was only 7.99 and the music sounded awfully good. I grabbed it and went home and saw the band was signed to Dreamworks along with two of my favorite artists, Elliott Smith and Rufus Wainwright. Even better! I hope the Jeff comments don't annoy them too much, because they aren't well-known yet and everyone's already making comparisons. "Distorted Lullabies" is excellent, and one of the best newer bands I have heard in a long time.

Yours Mine and Ours 29 May 2001
By Thornton F. Cole - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Like most of us, I perked up thinking "Amnesiac" was out the first time I heard Ours on MTV2 (thank you for playing music instead of reality shows!). Days later I saw the band on late night television and was again enthralled with the sonics coming from my television. Alas, I purchased the CD, and was so pleasured to hear a vocal range along the lines of Thom Yorke and Sara McLachlan doing introspective songs with nice textured, guitar work. The production on this album is primo and I personally love "Fallen Souls", "Sometimes" and the U2ish "Bleed". When opening the liner notes to see that Steve Lillywhite (who I will credit with more interesting bands than Dave Matthews...i.e. U2, Big Country, Simple Minds and The Blue Nile) I instantly felt that this CD was going to be a winner. I wasn't disappointed. It is so rare today that you can hear a song on alternative radio and then find out that the album is not full of klunkers but instead is full of lovely songs that all blend together like magic. Touching and stellar. 5 Stars!

Simply the Best 13 Aug. 2007
By K. Rebello - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Ours has been my favorite band since I first picked up this cd over five and a half years ago. I love this CD and can listen to it over and over, never getting tired of it. When their second CD came out I snatched it up right away. It's different from this CD, a bit more upbeat, but still very good. Of coarse this is my favorite from them. I think the music and the lyrics make the vocals even more intense, if that is even possible. Powerful vocals!!

On my list of things to do before I die is to see Ours live.
