too often in modern music, people rave on about mediocre bands and albumns being the best thing they have ever heard. with buckley however every word of this is true. Jeff's music touches so many peoples lives, everyone i know from people into emo, hardcore, pop, folk and country, they all will agree on the genius of one artist, jeff buckley.
I bought grace on the off chance about three years ago, having seen the cd in a record shop. it was the best buy i ever made, grace has totally changed my opinion of what music can be, it is so musically complex, but accessible and so emotionally honest, jeff pours his heart out of his voice. when i first heard hallelujah i thought it was the most beautiful music i had ever heard. this however is only the tip of the iceberg, other tracks take longer to get into but are absolutely amazing. So real and eternal life are pure guitar driven rock, and last goodbye is the most amazingly beautiful and complex song that manages to sound so simple. when jeff reaches the soaring line ' did you say, no this cant happen to me' you will be wondering how you ever lived without this albumn.
