  • Jeff Buckley was many things, but humble wasn't one of them. Grace is an audacious debut album, filled with sweeping choruses, bombastic arrangements, searching lyrics, and above all, the richly textured voice of Buckley himself, which resembled a cross between Robert Plant, Van Morrison, and his father Tim. And that's a fair starting point for his music: Grace sounds like a Led Zeppelin album written by an ambitious folkie with a fondness for lounge jazz. At his best -- the soaring title track, "Last Goodbye," and the mournful "Lover, You Should've Come Over" -- Buckley's grasp met his reach with startling results; at its worst, Grace is merely promising. [This version of the album adds a bonus track, "Forget Her."] ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (5/13/99, p.55) - Included in Rolling Stone's "Essential Recordings of the 90's."

Rolling Stone (11/3/94, p.101) - 3 Stars (out of 5) - "...Buckley's got huge ears and an even bigger record collection: He jumbles jazz, R&B, blues and rock references with such apparent nonchalance that he can seem like a showoff..."

Spin (10/94, p.111) - Highly Recommended - "...If Buckley continues to evolve in the direction that GRACE indicates, only good things can result..."

Entertainment Weekly (Spring 2000, p.166) - Ranked #3 in EW's "Top 10 albums of the '90s"

Entertainment Weekly (8/26-9/2/94, p.112) - "...a dreamy and original set of songs....Too good to be true..." - Rating: A+

Q (12/99, p.82) - Included in Q Magazine's "90 Best Albums Of The 1990s."

Q (9/94, p.98) - 4 Stars (out of 5) - "...This is no pretty folk LP, it's a powerful album of unlocked emotions, poetry and drama, where ringing guitar and driving drums mix with swaying spartan tenderness and almost awkward rhythmic changes..."

Q (p.130) - 4 stars out of 5 - "[He] hit his stride via covers and the barest outlines of songs. And LEGACY is padded out with most of this difficult journey."

Uncut (p.124) - 5 stars out of 5 - "Ten years on and remastered, GRACE sounds more swoopingly lyrical and breathlessly eclectic than ever."

Melody Maker (8/13/94, p.34) - Recommended - "...It's a voice that leaps tall buildings in a single bound, smells of sex and Chanel and never stoops to showboating..."

Musician (11/94, pp.87-88) - "...a faultless expansion of Buckley's solo shows in New York clubs..."

Village Voice (2/28/95) - Ranked #23 in the Village Voice's 1994 Pazz & Jop Critics Poll.
