Jeff Buckley essentially took a lesser "Love is bullshit" Leonard Cohen song and turned into something sparse, desolate, and deeply moving. However, due in equal parts to the fact that the song is, by its very nature, lyrically and compositionally derivative, as well as leaning at times too heavily into the aforementioned sparsity, one gets the sense that this is a taste, not an example of the very best of Jeff Buckley's tragically short repertoire.
