      Jeff Buckley – Grace is the only complete studio album by Jeff Buckley, released on August 23, 1994. While the album initially had poor sales, peaking at No. 149 in the U.S., and received mixed reviews, it gradually acquired critical and popular acclaim and has now sold over 2 million copies worldwide. An extended version of the album celebrating its tenth anniversary was released on August 23, 2004, and it peaked at No. 44 in the UK.

      Stephen Thomas Erlewine: ‘Jeff Buckley was many things, but humble wasn’t one of them. Jeff Buckley – Grace is an audacious debut album, filled with sweeping choruses, bombastic arrangements, searching lyrics, and above all, the richly textured voice of Buckley himself, which resembled a cross between Robert Plant, Van Morrison, and his father Tim. And that’s a fair starting point for his music: Jeff Buckley – Grace sounds like a Led Zeppelin album written by an ambitious folkie with a fondness for lounge jazz. At his best — the soaring title track, “Last Goodbye,” and the mournful “Lover, You Should’ve Come Over” — Buckley’s grasp met his reach with startling results; at its worst, Grace is merely promising. ‘

      Jeff Bateman: ‘ Resembling at times a soft-sung Robert Plant, Buckley was an intuitive vocalist capable of dizzying arabesques and choir-boy 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.’
