C'era già tutto Leoanrd Cohen in questo suo esordio, primo album di un trittico che avrebbe definiti i canoni della canzone sua e del cantautorato tutto, da lì in poi...

Leonard Cohen is a magician when it comes to words. He hypnotizes you and when you realize you're lost in another atmosphere that he created all around you when you were too distracted still trying to understand what he meant 2 songs before.

Here we have Leonard Cohen's debut album, his move from published poet to singer-songwriter is seamless, his debut is one of his very best collection of songs. What a piece of work Suzanne is for example, to try and analyse the lyrics would only break the spell of the poetry. Sisters Of Mercy is wonderful as is So Long, Marianne and another favourite of mine would be Hey, That's No Way To Say Goodbye.

Of course lyrically, Cohen is one of the very best of all time, but where the likes of Dylan have now and again released sub-standard material, Cohen's writing has never diminished throughout his career, you'd be hard pressed to find a throwaway line in his entire back catalogue. But why not start looking here regardless.

A brilliant debut album. As good as anything Dylan had released. It's a beautiful record full of stunning songs such as, Suzanne, so long,Marianne, and, hey,that's no way to say goodbye. That's probably the most famous tracks but there are plenty of other treasures to discover in, master song, sisters of mercy, and, one of us can't be wrong. Cohen manages to create something that is both haunting and spiritual. A classic.

When I listen to music I listen to emotion and the music and only after that grabs my attention, do lyrics grab my attention. I feel for this reason, I need to give this album a few more listens before connecting with it. His music isn't great, but it's still good, but I can tell the real art is the lyrics.

A true work of art, pure and simple. Leonard's gorgeous, echoing voice leading a beautiful symphony into your ears.
