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

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.
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.
I hear that the US Legacy version of this is a hundred times better than this, actually cut by someone with some talent. This is devoid of any info on who cut it, and therefore it is devoid of any life.
A great album, a terrible vinyl cut
