5.0 out of 5 stars Timeless Grace and Beauty, 31 Aug. 2007
This review is from: Grace (Audio CD)
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.
