Reviews:

''So Real: Songs from Jeff Buckley'' is a 'best of' compilation album of Jeff Buckley material, released on May 22, 2007.

It reached #1 in the Irish Albums Chart and has also reached #26 in Australia. The album peaked at #16 in the UK, becoming Buckley's 3rd consecutive top 20 album and since the success of the top 3 single "Hallelujah" has seen sales increase dramatically in the early part of 2009. - Wikipedia

Jeff Buckley's untimely death left the world with very little studio material (one studio album, a posthumous EP and some unreleased tracks) and a whole lot of posthumous live recordings. So Real compiles tracks from Grace, Sketches for My Sweetheart the Drunk, and the early EP Live at Sin-Ă into a single-disc best-of, with a previously unreleased cover of the Smiths' "I Know It's Over" as bait for Buckley completists.
