Leonard Cohen is one of the very few lyricists whose words work outside of the music. There are many great wordsmiths from Lou Reed, Bob Dylan, Morrissey, Paul Simon and Joni Mitchell, but Cohen's work on their own more than anyone else's. As for the music, his first three albums(songs of Leonard Cohen, Songs from a room, and, Songs of love and hate) are perfect, a brilliant trilogy full of great songs. His seventies records are a little more patchy, but, New skin for the old ceremony, is an underrated gem, while the Phil Spector collobaration, Death of a ladies man, is hit and miss. By the eighties, Cohen started to employ more contemporary sounds and while some of it sounds musically dated the material was as strong as ever with both, Various positions, and, I'm your man, two of his best albums. The early noughties brought the superb, Ten new songs, and the disappointing, Dear Heather. His final three releases can be seen, like his first three, as a kind of trilogy. Old ideas, Popular problems, and the recent, You want it darker, are all superb albums, three of his best. Leonard Cohen was a great singer/songwriter, a true artist, whose music and words will amaze and inspire for generations to come. R.I.P. Leonard.

If anything, at least his late-career surge may have introduced another generation to his beautiful cool. RIP, Canadian ambassador.

RIP Leonard Cohen...one of the very very best, in fact a genius for me. Hallelujah is indeed wonderful but there are so many other songs to remember also - Suzanne, Famous Blue Raincoat, Hey That's No Way To Say Goodbye, Sisters Of Mercy, Last Year's Man etc.

RIP Leonard Cohen. Truly one of the most beautifully poetic artists of all time. And I mean this, truly. I remember hearing his debut album just a week ago and being truly enthralled. It's so devastating to lose such a talented musician again this year.

One of the top lyricists ever. Rivals Dylan and Neil Young for pure poetry... and saying that Cohen is a poet isn't subjective - he was a reknowned poet and novelist in Canada before he became a recording artist. He paints too. Nobody could wax about love, sex, and passage of life like Leonard Cohen. Pure beauty.

(Yes, I know his voice struggles - but is he worse than Dylan, Tom Waits or Neil Young's singing?)

i've found that I prefer his "Best Of" type albums to the individual ones.
