Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

Here's what they say about Jeff Buckley: "He died too young". Here's why they say it: Grace is simply one of the most amazing things you can do with your ears and a little digitally-encoded disc. He inherited the voice of his father, the legendary Tim Buckley--seven octaves, each of them only just enough to cram his big feverish dreams into--but his music was all his own. Think Van Morrison's Astral Weeks on drugs--but then drugs could give some kind of comfort, and there's no comfort in Grace; just constant flux between crippling despair and an almost violent joy. When "Last Goodbye" unfolds it's third different middle-eight of Bollywood strings and Buckley's ecstatic scatting, it's hard to believe an ordinary human could have had a hand in something so extraordinary. --Caitlin Moran

BBC Review

Jeff Buckley's tragically early death surely did something to immortalize his one and only full-length album, but even so, Grace is without doubt a truly musical monument, spanning time and space and perpetually blowing fresh minds round the globe (and quite possibly somewhere beyond).

His voice is multi-textured and he uses notes to dramatic effect - the agony and the ecstasy of it hitting you straight in the gut. His music is so extraordinary, in fact, that it's impossible to put this album on in the background without being drawn into its psyche. Don't just listen -experience, be mesmerized, take a trip.

This re-mastered Legacy edition of Grace includes a second CD of unreleased material and rarities, plus a DVD of promo videos and an expanded version of the original Grace documentary. The question is, is it worth having over the original?

The answer is a definite yes, its main selling point being the fact that the second CD, dare I say it, is practically as good as the first.

It highlights his interest and accomplishment in diverse genres and consolidates his status as a musical pioneer.

Out of the 13 songs, highlights include "Forget Her", a stunningly beautiful song that sends the emotions tearing and tingling out the ends of your fingers. "Kanga Roo" is14 minutes of abrasive, mind melting insanity, "Parchman Farm Blues" which hears Buckley capturing perfectly the meter and pitch of an old blues sound and the thrash rock-ness of "Eternal Life".

So, 10 years after the original release of this seminal album, the legacy edition is indeed a credit to his name. There is poignancy to watching the man on film and you can't help wondering, as with all artists cut off in their prime, what may have been.

Listen and be purged. --Stephanie Barrow

Forgive me if I can't complete this review with excesses of Jeff-love gushing, because this is probably my favourite album of all time.
We'll start with the voice, shall we? Jeff Buckley has not only inherited his father, Tim's, earth-shattering range, but his incredible emotion and soul, also. It doesn't hit you immediately, as the opening song, 'Mojo Pin', is quite a slow-burner, and the volume and tone build up gradually to reveal a genre-transcending vocal.
The combination of genres is very important on this album, in fact, and although Buckley's influences seem to stretch from traditional folk to the bluesy heavy rock of Led Zeppelin (whom he stated he listened to as a child), his voice carries him through.
The title track, 'Grace', could be described as an uplifting death-plea! - "If it's my time coming, then I'm not afraid." Opening with 'magical guitarness', it has fantastic melody and rhythm, and the squealing climax is completely overpowering.
To have three covers on an album of ten may not appear to be a particularly good advert for Jeff Buckley's immense songwriting talent, but he truly conquers other people's songs in a way that makes you instantly forget other versions. 'Lilac Wine' is so sensitive and emotional. The musical arrangement really fits the lyrics: "sweet and heady, like my life." The vocals on Britten's 'Corpus Christi Carol' is jaw-dropping. How can he sing like that?! But, the most famous of the covers, and deservedly so, is 'Hallelujah'. This could be seen as the album's masterpiece: truly grand and wonderfully charged with the darkest of emotion.
On 'So Real' and 'Eternal Life' we see more of Jeff Buckley's rock side.

Jeff Buckley was best described by Bono from U2, as "a pure drop in an ocean of noise". Wheh you listen to "Grace", you can see exactly what he meant.
The first thing that hits you is Jeff's amazing voice, an instrument of true wonder, he could falsetto to such beauty that it inspired the likes of Thom Yorke from Radiohead to reach new vocal heights on their 95 album The Bends. He could also sing more deeper emotional tones, forever leaving the listener with a thrilling guessing game of where he would take them next. Grace is also enriched by the wonderful songs and arrangements that Jeff used to showcase his unique voice, songs full of love and regret, loss and salvation. It is hard to put into words the deep emotional connection this album brings to the listener.
It is now a standard cross to bear for every new singer-songwriter feted by the music press, to be called Jeff Buckleyesque, it is an unfair term, as nobody could ever match his insightful songwriting and vocal talent. There are some songs on Grace that are simply unmatched in modern rock history. He was with us only for a short space of time until his untimely death in 1997, but Grace will ensure that his genius will never be forgtten.
Grace is an album that should be in everybody's home. A pure drop indeed.

Jumping in staight at the deep end: If you do not own this album, and consider yourself a music fan , then you need to seriously part with your cash NOW.
Jeff Buckley was blessed with one of the most beautiful voices ever heard in the world of music, blending melancholy and sadness with uplifting spirituality in the sound of a note. That is the only way I can possible describe the sound of this man's voice, as he can capture all human emotions in one solitary note.
Many will highlight his encapsulating cover of Cohen's 'Hallelujah' as the standout track from 'Grace' (which I cannot question as it is amazing.) However, Buckley is far from a one trick pony as tracks such as 'Last Goodbye', 'Mojo Pin' and 'Lover You Should've Come Over' (recently covered by Jamie Cullum) offer inspiring lyrics and forever memorable melodies. His use of guitar is subtle but yet mindblowing, with beautiful use of both riffs and melody. And the orchestration does not over-complicate, but underscore his powerful vocal talent.
This album is quite simply perfect, capturing the beauty of Opera, the zest of Rock'n'Roll, and the musical perfection of many a Classical score. It is a fitting tribute to a man who died in such tragic circumstances.
It saddens me that this iconic album is always seen in highstreet stores priced below £10. This album is priceless (forgive the cliche.)
'Mystery White Boy' also highlights his talent, offering a live performance from the tour of the same title.

If it has not already done so, history will surely assign Jeff Buckley's `Grace' with the status of being one of the most remarkable debut albums of all time. Seizing the opportunity to show off his talents under his own name, and also no doubt keen to emerge from the shadow of his famous father, Buckley delivers an album of amazing range and variety.

Full-on rockers like `Eternal Life' sit alongside more delicately performed pop-oriented tracks such as `Lilac Wine', `Grace' and the truly beautiful and moving `Last Goodbye', the lyrics for which gain added poignancy with the knowledge of Buckley's tragically early death.

Astonishingly diverse cover versions such as Benjamin Britten's `Corpus Christi Carol' and Leonard Cohen's `Hallelujah' are performed with precocious confidence but Buckley also shows that his own material is the equal of any other.

What gives Jeff Buckley the ability to cover such ground, of course, is his voice which leaves the humble listener struggling for superlatives. His vocal range and depth of passion and emotion is truly extraordinary. I must have heard his version of `Hallelujah' a hundred times but it still gives me shivers down the spine. He sounds like a rock god one minute and a choirboy the next - incredible.

This album is consistently melodic, passionate and enjoyable. The music world was robbed of a great talent when Buckley drowned in the Mississippi. If you do not already own this album buy it now- you will not be disappointed.
