Reseña de álbum

Jeff Buckley was a mess of contradictions: a perfectionist who believed in spontaneity, a man who was at once humble and vain, a musician who shunned his father's tumultuous legacy while creating one of his own. These are some of the reasons why he took his time writing and recording the material for his second album, laboring over many songs for months at a time. Given such painstaking methods, it shouldn't have been a surprise that recording was an equally fastidious process. Buckley recorded enough material for an album with producer Tom Verlaine, but deciding that the results weren't quite right, he scrapped them and moved to Memphis to record the album again. He reworked a few songs as home demos as he prepared to cut the album, but it was never made — Buckley died in a tragic drowning accident before entering the studio. As a way to enlarge his legacy, his mother and record label rounded up the majority of the existing unreleased recordings, releasing them as the double-disc set Sketches for My Sweetheart the Drunk. Excepting a few awkward moments and middle-eights, it's hard to see why Buckley rejected the Verlaine productions that make up disc one. The material isn't necessarily a progression from Grace; it's more like a stripped-down, edgier take on the sweeping, jazz-tinged goth folk-rock that made the first album so distinctive. Neither the nearly finished first disc nor the homemade demos and re-recordings on the second disc offer any revelations, but that's not necessarily a disappointment. Sketches adds several wonderful songs to his catalog, offering further proof of his immense talent. And that, of course, is what makes the album as sad as it is exciting.

This album is a great album, which is why I gave it 5 stars. But iTunes uploaded the wrong song for track 10 of 20. While the song title is correct, i.e., "You & I", the song file is "Satisfied Mind". I have let Apple know about this (after I purchased the record) but they said they couldn't say "when or if this would be fixed."

Listen to the narrator of you life. A masterpiece.

His voice is the narrator you have been waiting for to tell of all the ordinary things you just can’t. The little pleasures that we soon forget, and the pain that last but we subconsciously store into opaque bottles somewhere in the back of our minds. The surreal illusions painted by shadows on buildings used to see when you sit watching out the window of the backseat of your parent’s car, the cold side of the pillow, seeing the person you used to love, and not being able to remember what was it that moved you out of the world. Dreams, visions, prayers----if you believe like Buckley did that all things are music, his music will make you wonder if everything is music, what is a word you can give to his? Jeff’s music is like someone deeply breathing into your soul----as if it were an expanding balloon and having it explode, with the same gentle hand mending it back again. Jeff Buckley is an example. Life isn’t fair, and if you don’t believe it----believe it by the fact that Jeff Buckley never got to completely finish another album after his masterpiece Grace, but also with that believe that life is beautiful, because his music lives on and before his tragic premature death he was working on another album. Originally called, “ My Sweetheart the Drunk” Sketches is exactly what was added to the original title; a sketch, a caricature---and incomplete piece of art. But yet, even with this incomplete masterpiece is light, is glimmer, is beauty of filing in gaps of perhaps what it could be. Originals not only showcase an edgier, more soft and maturing Jeff but also retain the beauty of his more familiar songs. Songs like, “ Opened Once” “Morning Theft” “ Vancouver” “You and I” “Gunshot Glitter” and “Jewel Box” showcase the singer-songwriter soul of Buckley’s that was exhibited by his covers and originals such as “ Lover you should’ve come over“ and “Last Goodbye“ “ The Sky is a Landfill” “ Nightmares by the Sea” “ Witches Rave” “Murder Meteor Slave” and “Demon John” recall guitar driven epics such as “So Real” and “Eternal Life.” Buckley when asked about death, was quoted saying that he felt there was no end ---and with such powerful music, there never can be. Regardless who you are, where you have been, or what you believe, if you are human---Buckley is your narrator. A beautiful album.

Very Powerful Stuff...

This CD is up there on my top 5 list. I got into Buckley about 3 years ago, and his music has helped me so much. Grace was a masterpiece, and this, is more powerful. Especially when you realize that this man died and robbed the world of more beautiful music. I'm a little sad that not too many realize who he is, they know him as "that guy who made Hallelujah". But maybe its a good thing. He's a secret, and I'm sure we all feel that he talks to us, and not to the masses.

Since he was the son of cult songwriter Tim Buckley, Jeff Buckley faced more expectations and pre-conceived notions than most singer/songwriters. Perhaps it wasn't surprising that Jeff Buckley's music was related to his father's by only the thinnest of margins. Buckley's voice was grand and sweeping, which fit with the mock-operatic grandeur of his Van Morrison-meets-Led Zeppelin music. His audacious debut Grace made him one of the most popular alternative artists of the '90s, accentuated by his...
