* GenreBusting: His music became gradually more ambitious, and ''Starsailor'' was the LogicalExtreme of his jazz-folk brand, with full use of his octave range, free jazz and chanson elements added.
* JerkAss: Pretty much, since he left his wife to take care of a son by herself and then fired his band for no reason. Hard pill to swallow.
* ManOfAThousandVoices: Just listen to ''Starsailor''. The fact that he has a voice spanning almost ''six octaves'' certainly supported this ability.

* OvershadowedByAwesome: Arguably by his son, despite Jeff's [[ShortLivedBigImpact even shorter recording career]] although he would likely be far less well known if not for his son's stardom.

* CoverVersion: The most accessible song off of ''Starsailor'', "Song to the Siren", has been covered by Music/ThisMortalCoil (who were the first to cover it back in 1983), [[Music/LedZeppelin Robert Plant]], [[Music/RedHotChiliPeppers John Frusciante]], Charlotte Martin and [[Music/RoxyMusic Bryan Ferry]]. It's quite a popular cover.
* DisappearedDad: To Jeff Buckley, who was raised by his mother and stepfather. The song "I Never Asked to Be Your Mountain" is addressed to his stranged ex-wife and son. His son's cover of that song is in on the meta level, both a {{Tearjerker}} and a CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming.
