This album blew me away at the originality and unexpected hooks in the songs. I had heard of Jeff for years but had not taken the chance to check out his music and now I find out what I have been missing. the most unique artist of the past 20 yrs for sure and now I see where John Mayer got all his tricks.

This is an extraordinary first album by a very talented singer/songwriter/musician. When I first heard it, I became "addicted" to it -- I listened to it every day and did not want to listen to anything else. The fact that Buckley died tragically, as he was about to record his second album, makes this one that much more valuable.

Purely haunting. "Grace" is such a masterful offering of music, and it will remain, one of my favorites, for the whole of this lifetime.
Top 5 all-time albums (any genre)

"I just don't know what album bumps this out of the top 5. Despite a short-lived life and career, this young man was one of the great musicians (and performers) in modern times."

"I had the great fortune of being hip to Jeff Buckley in the early 90's before Grace was released. I had a promo CD of various live performances Jeff did while in New York. The thing that astonished me was his voice. I never heard a male voice that carried so much weight and at times was as light as a feather. His musicianship was nothing to sneeze at either. After listening to the promo I wondered if he would ever be signed to a major label or just be a cult musician like Scott Walker and a few others. A few years passed and I was in Los Angeles driving up the coast to San Francisco when I heard a chime of guitars and a throbbing bass and a familiar voice. It was Buckley and the song was the " Last Goodbye ". I must admit that when I got to Frisco I found a record store and purchased Grace. I wasn't disappointed. In fact, that was the only CD I played during my travels around California. From the mountains to the desert to seaside resorts the music was hypnotic and poignant. I wanted to know more about Buckley but the few interviews he gave, I found him to be cryptic and even a touch melancholic. I also felt a deep sense that he wasn't going to be around long either. But, with that being said, let me just say the songs " Last Goodbye, Lilac Wine, So Real, Lover Should Have Come Over and a the remake of Leonard Cohen's Halleljah" are the best songs on this album. It's a damn shame that Jeff is no longer with us. He left behind quite an impression in the music world that will be greatly missed. He was a geniune singer/songwriter/musician. There will never be another American male artist of his caliber again. This crap on the radio nowadays is absolutely horrible. If you've never heard of Jeff Buckley please get a copy of his debut album and also the album he was working on when he died called Sketches for My Sweetheart the Drunk. There is nothing more I can say about this man without getting depressed myself."
