The amount of dead musicians is staggering. But if i could revive one dead musician, it's Jeff Buckley. Not only was he amazingly talented, but he just went so early in his carreer. It feels like he had so much more to offer musically.

It's a well known fact that dying on the peak or sudden rise of your fame grants you the title of "legend" pretty much automatically. But with Jeff, i'm positive that he would have grown out to be a legend anyway. You can tell by listening to Grace and Sketches that he was no one-trick pony. Not everything on Sketches is good, which makes sense because it's unfinished and unselected. But the highlights make me believe that he could have made another record just as good as Grace - without repeating himself. Opened Once is hauntingly beautiful, Morning Theft is great songwriting stripped down to perfection and Everybody Here Wants You is industrial strength sex fudge with mojo sprinkles on top.

i get a chill down my spine to any of his songs.

My favorite album of his is Live at Sin-e, the deluxe edition. I think it really shows off his guitar skills and musical vocabulary. Have you ever heard someone cover a Pakistani guru, Bob Dylan, Edith Piaf, and Led Zeppelin all in the same set? Absolutely astonishing music.

i get those exact same chills that little moments is soo awesomely brilliant

its a shame he died so soon...i also thinks its a shame that his most famous song is a cover when he was such a brilliant song writer (although hallelujah is still an awesome song)

Sketches is impossible to find around here. Nothing live either...I had to search just to find Grace, thank God I found it. Unreal record, one of my favourites of all the albums I own.

Live at L'Olympia is impossible to get in the US for under $40. Damn you Europeans!!! But I've got the same CDs, otherwise, along with a couple tracks from the EPs and the Live at Chicago DVD, which is great. It's interesting comparing how he does the tracks on Live at Chicago v. how they're done on Mystery White Boy, since they were both taken from the same tour. "What Would You Say?" on Mystery White Boy pwns.

wow, I just got turned on to Jeff Buckley's music recently. my gf kept trying to get me to listen to it, and I'd heard a few songs and though it was just good music and nothing too special...boy was I wrong

the guy had a talent like only a few others in history in that he transcends his own music with the soul he puts into it...technically it is music, but it feels like something else entirely...like it was created in a whole separate universe

I just felt the uncontrollable urge to rant about the man, he's changed not only the way I look at music, but the way I look at a great many things

Buckley is incredible. I only really got into his music this year but I am very glad I did as I find that his music can really hit some emotions in my brain that very few (if any) artists can. His beautiful voice, his excellent guitar playing and just the fact that he could sing practically anything.
Lately, his music and more specifically his singing has made me want to get singing lessons - but don't get me wrong, I don't believe that I will get in a million years as good as his voice Rather that I just want to improve my own.

^ I agree. I'm listening to Live at L'Olympia right now

When he goes "She's a tear that hangs inside my soul forever," it sent a chill up my spine. Sometimes his vocalizing can get annoying, but there are so many moments of absolute perfection that it's easily forgivable.

It's all just absolutely unreal. I've been listening to Mystery White Boy for about two weeks straight, with no other bands. I'm not going to linger on any 'what ifs', because that's pointless. But...

Same here. I managed to (finally) find his St. Ann's performance last week and a rare radio show where he performs a bunch of covers, both absolutely amazing. His cover of Van Morrison's 'The way young lovers do' is one of the best covers I've ever heard.

Is it just me who saves Grace for special occasions?

For me its one of those albums that has such an amazing mood/feeling attached to it I dont dare play it everyday incase it starts wearing off.

EDIT:

Quote by Dirk Gently

Just looking at the track listing for that, whats his cover of "I shall be released" like?

I have the bob Dylan version, not sure what album its from, Its just under essential Bob dylan on my playlist, but his voice is on top form.

Buckley rules. There was this Greek mythological dude called Orpheus who was meant to be able to move rocks and trees 'coz his singing was amazing. Buckley is, I think we can all agree, his re-incarnation.

It is one of my favourites of Live at Sin-e......he nails it prefectly and he makes the song into this cry of freedom while he is just singing in a cafe....outstanding stuff.

If you like Jeff Buckley then you should like Jack Penate , I'm not saying he is anywhere near as good but he is influenced by Jeff.


Anyway back on topic Jeff Buckley is by far my favourite singer/songwriter. He was incredible at everythiong he turned his hand to. My favourite song is Last Goodbye, I love the melodies in that song and the unusual song structure.

^ Lilac Wine is a cover of a song by female jazz vocalist Nina Simone and is better than the original, IMO.
