About this album

Grace is the first and only complete studio album by Jeff Buckley, released on August 23, 1994. The album is named after the title track, “Grace”, co-written by Buckley and Gary Lucas. While the album initially had poor sales, only peaking at #149 in the U.S., it received wide critical acclaim. It has now sold over 2 million copies worldwide. An extended version of the album (subtitled Legacy Edition) celebrating its tenth anniversary was released in 2004, and it peaked at #44 in the UK.

Musicians such as Thom Yorke of Radiohead and Matthew Bellamy of Muse list Buckley among their influences, and the album has been lauded by veteran artists such as Chris Cornell of Soundgarden and Audioslave, Neil Peart of Rush, Jimmy Page, Robert Plant, Paul McCartney, Steven Wilson of Porcupine Tree, and Bob Dylan.

Buckley’s cover of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” remains one of his most well-known songs, and has been used extensively in many U.S. television series and films, including The West Wing, The O.C., Scrubs, One Tree Hill and The Edukators. In 2004, this version was ranked #259 on Rolling Stone’s article “The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time”.

Buckley’s version of “Corpus Christi Carol” was based on a version by Janet Baker. A childhood friend introduced him to the song, and Buckley sang a version on the album as a way of thanking for him.

    David Bowie considers Grace to be the best album ever made, and has said it would be his only "Desert Island Record'' ^^
