Jeff Buckley describes his music as a "low-down dreamy bit of the psyche. It's part quagmire and part structure. The quagmire's important for things to grow in...do you ever have one of those memories where you think you remember a taste or a feel of something...maybe an object...but the feeling is so bizarre and imperceptible that you just can't quite get a hold of it? It drives you crazy. That's my musical aesthetic...just this imperceptible fleeting memory. The beauty of it now is that I can record it onto a disc or play it live. It's entirely surreal. It's like there's a guard at the gate of your memory and you're not supposed to remember certain things because you can only obtain the full experience by completely going under its power. You can be destroyed or scarred...you don't know...it's like dying."
