While I can only take Jeff Buckley's singing in small doses, I agree that he was a tremendous talent, and his death was a tragic loss for music. "Hallelujah" is simply one of the most moving songs I've ever heard.

I agree, altho i think on some stuff he coulda been accused of showing off his um 'instrument' which is the only way u could describe his voice at times, kinda like thom yorke in that sense...

ill have to look into tim

The final verse of "Forget Her" is positively chilling.

My tears falling over as I try to forget
Her love was a joke from the day that we met
All of her words, all of the men
All of my pain when I think back to when
Remember her hair as it shone in the sun
The smell on the bed when I knew what she'd done
Tell yourself over and over you won't ever need her again...

"Jewel Box" from Sketches is one of the most beautiful love songs of the '90s.

Other B-sides worth checking out:

"Mama You've Been On My Mind" and "Farewell Angelina" (Dylan covers)
"Thousandfold" (very rare)
"Please Send Me Someone to Love"

I think Bono's version of Hallelujah sucked, actually.

Gorgeous song.

Bono's version of Hallelujah did suck. Embarrassing for such a great song done by someone so talented.

I love Grace. Dream Brother must be one of my favourite songs ever. It makes me go all cold and still. And the title track, and Last Goodbye...

So should I get Sketches? I understand his band was not happy about it being released because he had decided not to make it into his next album. Also, I looked at the lyrics and found some of them pretty disturbing. So I haven't got it yet.

Ive felt the same about Sketches Sactter.
I adore Jeff but never wanted that album. Ive heard it a few times but never owned it myself. Didn't his Mum release it?

well if nothing else, you should all download "The Sky is a Landfill" and "Jewel Box" from that cd, also "Satisfied Mind" is a must...

Sketches does cover a lot of odd material, for example the Nusrat Fateh Ali-Khan flavored "New Year's Prayer." And I guess some people might be put off by some of the songs like "Gunshot Glitter," but the overall feeling of Sketches is very intense, very spare, very deeeeeeeep lyrics. Like the Very Best Of Bono Times Seven at points.

Damn, what a waste.
