Editorial Reviews

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 its third different bridge 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. Ten years on from its original release, this repackaged "Legacy Edition" 3-disc CD and DVD set really does his legend proud. --Caitlin Moran

Product Description

Jeff Buckley was a prolific singer/songwriter, always striving for perfection. He would record many of his songs in various styles. Jeff also took time to record a number of songs by the artists who inspired him. Both of these aspects of Jeff's music are encompassed on Grace (Legacy Edition). Disc One features the original album newly remastered for a new sonically rich, crisp sound not heard before. Disc Two features previously unreleased live recordings & material recorded during the Grace sessions, including the highly sought-after track "Forget Her." Grace (Legacy Edition) also includes a bonus DVD featuring a newly expanded version of the original Grace documentary (included on the Live In Chicago DVD), now titled "The Making Of Grace."

5.0 out of 5 stars A Beautiful tragedy March 4, 2000
Format:Audio CD
There are certain songs or artists you remember hearing for the first time, the impression is/was so strong. Jeff Buckley is one such artist. At first you hear the voice-That Voice!-expressive, far-ranging, wailing falsetto and heart melting vibrato.A close clock on his voice is like combining the apex of robert plant with some van morrison and a little of his own father's(tim buckley) monstrous instrument. Next you hear the music-plaintive, melancholy , pleading, ethereal-Free. Stylistically he harkens back somewhat to 80's alternarock ala cocteau twins-but really his sound(other than cover songs) is all his own; highlights are the soaring, epic "grace" and the rainy-day blues of "lover you should've come other" to the wistful "mojo pin". The third and most important ingredient to this masterpiece is his honesty- when you this album , you hear Jeff Buckley, heart and soul. Every song , every note-whether his own or borrowed, is another thread in the weaving of his own personal story, musically and otherwise.All in all, rarely has a debut artist come onto the scene with impact of a jeff buckley. Alas the tragedy is that his musical legacy was impromptly halted. Jeff Buckley accidentally drowned in May of '97. Which makes this album and his subsequent, unfinished release "sketches for my sweetheart the drunk"-that much more precious, and that much more graceful-A.N.

5.0 out of 5 stars Definitely Worth Getting for Original Grace Owners, But... September 20, 2004
By R. Lee
Format:Audio CD
One Small Problem...

The first time I popped in the Legacy Version, I noticed something- "Hallelujah" didn't give me the same spine-tingling sensation that the version on Grace did. The reason? Simply put, the version of "Hallelujah" on the original Grace album had a much better balance, level wise, between Jeff's vocals and guitar playing. If you do a side-by-side comparison, you will find that Jeff's vocals are too harsh and forward on the remastered version of Hallelujah, when compared to the version found on the original Grace CD.

However, all the other tracks on this reissue actually sound BETTER than their previous incarnations.

There's more impact on the drums, deeper bass, more detailed instruments and better separation (listen to the strings on "Last Goodbye"), and Jeff's vocals (his greatest strength) are clearer and higher up in the mix.

The unreleased song, "Forget Her," is definitely the highlight of the second disc. The remainder of the second disc proves to be an interesting listen that demonstrates the versatility of Jeff Buckley as an artist.

The Bonus DVD showcases the music videos, which range from average-well done, and a 25 minute documentary that features interviews with Jeff, Steve Berkowitz, and "behind the scenes" footage. Buckley makes some interesting quotes about the impact of music on his life, that will undoubtedly find their way on an Internet fan site some day. A welcome addition.

My other suggestion for Columbia would have been to include more information in the included booklet- perhaps more commentary on the Grace album as was done with the tracks on the second disc.

Overall, well worth the purchase for Jeff Buckley fans, and any music lover looking to be challenged and inspired.

Jeff Buckley released but one fully realized album during his all-too-brief stay with us on earth, but that album is one of the most passionate and spiritual albums I have ever heard. Imagine a fiery young singer/songwriter who is influenced by the likes of Led Zeppelin and The Smiths. Oh, and this dude has the most amazing voice ever. Also imagine his band (bassist Mick Grondhal, drummer Matt Johnson, guitarist Michael Tighe) knew his playing inside and out and acted more like a backing band for John Coltrane or Miles Davis than a traditional rock ensemble. Then you have a rough idea of the amazing album known simply as _Grace_.
_Grace_ beings with the beautiful "Mojo Pin," fading into a soft guitar line along with Buckley's gentle crooning. With Zeppelin-esque intensity the track grows stronger and louder to it's climax. The wonderful guitar work ties the song together while Matt Johnson's drumming accentuates each change of pace. "The welts of your scorn, my love, give me more/Send whips of opinion down my back, give me more" Buckley's singing builds, "Well it's you I've waited my life to see/It's you I've searched so hard for," soaring into the ether with the last phrase. This flows into the next track, "Grace", which serves as a beautifully fiery compliment to the atmospheric "Mojo Pin." The climax found within is glorious, with sweet guitar strumming and then Buckley belting out with incredible emotion: "And I feel them drown my name/So easy to know/And forget with this kiss/I'm not afraid to go" His voice now more intense than ever, nearly screaming "But it goes so slow". He holds the last note for what seems like an eternity.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing and Graceful January 19, 2000
Format:Audio CD
This could be one of the best CD's of the last decade. The songs are just beautiful and rich. Each track has lush textural arrangements and wonderful melodies. It can rock at times, ("Eternal Life, Grace") but its the slower more personal numbers that pull the listener in. Songs like "Lover, You Should of Come Over" paint a picture in your head so vivid you can hear the rain drops. The painfully powerful, "So Real" puts you in the relationship of the lovers in the song. It all comes down to Jeff being an amazing storyteller. His roots suggest a more folk approach to songs, but he leaves that behind, leaning more toward the MC5 and Leonard Cohen, than to Peter, Paul and Mary. Some people need some time to warm-up to his falseto-ish voice, but I think it's simply amazing, and so is this disc.

Most of the songs are a little too dark for my taste. Purchased for "Hallelujah", which is the saving "grace" for this cd.
