Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time — rated 304/500

"During his famed early gigs at the New York club Sin-é, Buckley used to break hearts with his version of this Cohen prayer. Buckley called it a homage to 'the hallelujah of the orgasm' and had misgivings about his sensuous rendition: 'I hope Leonard doesn't hear it.' On his posthumous live album Mystery White Boy, Buckley turns 'Hallelujah' into a medley with the Smiths' 'I Know It's Over.'" - Rolling Stone

From Original Recordings Group label, part of a series of double 45 RPM 180-gram releases from the Sony/BMG catalog. Resembling at times a soft-sung Robert Plant, Jeff Buckley was an intuitive vocalist capable of dizzying arabesques and choirboy sweetness. He is joined here by a tight band for 10 tracks highlighting his stylistic range — Pearl Jam bluesy on "Eternal Life," impossibly serene on Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah," art-school noisy on "So Real," Led Zep daring on "Mojo Pin." Unorthodox, this was the debut of '94.

Grace is the only complete studio album by Buckley, originally released on August 23, 1994. After his death in 1997, the album grew to be one of the most important album's of the '90s. The album was produced by Andy Wallace who had mixed Nirvana's album Nevermind.

In addition to seven original songs, the album included three covers: "Lilac Wine", based on the version by Nina Simone, "Corpus Christi Carol," from Benjamin Britten's A Boy Was Born and Cohen's "Hallelujah."

Grace gives voice to those secrets of the human experience that lie mute and waiting for sound. "Eternal Life," is a sonically bruising plea for emotional tolerance and psychic liberation. "Eternal life is now on my trail," he sings, "Got my red glitter coffin, man, just need one last nail/While all these ugly gentlemen play out their foolish games/There's a flaming red horizon that screams our names."

Reviewer: ATL-TRAV
Spectacular AAA pressing of this classic! Positives: Amazing dynamics, unique Columbia black&white labels, Gatefold (..i like an easier to read spine), easily beats the MOV i previously owned, good bass (like only Bernie Grundman can offer), limited. Negatives: Non Laminated jacket (..spoiled from AP Doors reissues), numbering is not foil stamped (cheap sticker)

Very good remaster.I have the original Dutch pressing and this is much better.An old cliche "heard new sounds and instruments for the first time"but it is certainly true on this version.


Fantastic

Fantastic sounding pressing; Mastering is very very good, and does Jeff Buckley justice.
