With GRACE, his first full-length statement as a bandleader, songwriter/guitarist Jeff Buckley sets out upon a road less travelled, avoiding the safe and predictable in favor of the ecstatic and the personal.
Not that such obvious influences as the Beatles and Led Zeppelin have disappeared from this young talent's music. Buckley's voice is an exquisite, malleable instrument, and from his daring vaults into the upper registers to his long, enraptured middle-register ornaments and moans, he suggests the breakthroughs of a young Robert Plant or Van Morrison.
Songs like "The Last Goodbye" (with its coy slide intro and ragaish string backgrounds) and "Lover, You Should've Come Over" (with its late Beatles harmonies and Edith Piaf vocal ornaments) are powerful evocations of failing relationships ("too young to hold on, and too old to just break free and run"). "Lilac Wine" and "Hallelujah" feature his glassy, translucent guitar and poignant vocals in mystical, folkish settings, while "Dream Brother" achieves an almost Doors-like melancholy. Elsewhere, Buckley showcases his new band's power on "Mojo Pin" and "Eternal Life", which draw upon blues imagery and metaphors to create a subtle, hard-rocking atmosphere.

Hallelujah, should prove to Simon Cowell et al that you don't have to cry when singing to express emotion. Beautiful record

Alexandra who...... voted hot :thumbsup:

Love this album, finally got around to picking up the cd a few weeks ago in HMV at the same price, not sure if it was the remastered edition though. Definetly worth picking up, briliant album.

One my favourite records of all time. Try it on headphones - although I've not heard the remaster. Tempting.

I love this album, my favourite of all time but the bonus track should never have been added. Forget Her was originally going to be on it and Jeff removed it due to personal reasons but I guess his mother doesn't care about his legacy, simply a way of making more money.

Don't get me wrong, it's a great song, I just don't think should have been added to Grace.

Well said, my thoughts exactly.

Great record anyhow, especially for the price!
