4.0 excellentNick Butler EMERITUS | January 3rd 08

It's kinda hard to know exactly what to rate this. For a Jeff Buckley fan it's absolutely essential - "The Sky Is A Landfill", the soulful and tender "Everybody Here Wants You", the holy "Opened Once", the portentous "Nightmares By The Sea", "Morning Theft", and "Vancouver" are all fantastic, with "Opened Once" in particular being one of his very best recordings (that chord progression might be one of the finest ever conjured across six strings). The first disc, as a separate entity, is worthy of a 4.5 rating. Yet, the second disc does let the side down a little. There's still pleasure to be had here - "Satisfied Mind", for instance - but its inconsistencies dilute the gene pool a little. I guess that means Sketches might just be the most vital 4-star album ever made.

An exciting and promising look at what could have been.

This one is a tough one to rate. The first disc is a heavenly compilation of songs. They don't always flow well,
and some are vastly different than others, but they are still amazing songs.
Unfortunately for disc 2... sketches really is the best word to describe it. While a couple of tracks are gems,
even in their raw state, a lot of them needed more work, which will unfortunately never happen.
Still an essential Jeff Buckley listen, it's sad to think some of these disc 2 gems will never be perfected.

4.5 superbAmnesiacR | September 16th 08

I find it hard to rate this as a complete album--being that this is practically most of his unfinished demos plus barely down-on-tape songs. Even still, the album is incredible. Buckley's playing is, as always, astounding, and it is very obvious that special care was taken in the tone and progressions.
The second disc is wonderful. I love the taps on the mic for rhythm and the general roughness. It sounds like his old live shows.
As everyone has stated, an essential Jeff Buckley album--and a solid album for all listeners.

4.0 excellentRabeeto | September 16th 08

Although unfinished, this album holds many gems. Songs such as the sky is a landfill and witches rave are equally as astounding as anything from grace. The reason this wasn't given a higher mark was because it isn't finished and never will be, which is a great shame.

4.0 excellentvikkirose6 | August 11th 06

Even thought this album has some fantastic songs, e.g. Jewel Box and Satisfied Mind, it has songs that let the album down. The over all album is still fantastic, and considering it didn't have Jeff's complete perfectness, it is still amazing!
