Essential Cohen

Perfectly dark and brooding yet some how beautiful like a bleak day drizzling with rain

Dark, Disgusting, and raw. Should just be titled 'Songs of Hate' because even the love songs here are grounded in hate. Really great listen when you're in a f*** the world mood.

The third classic album in a row from Leonard Cohen. Songs of love and hate, is a stunning record full of fantastic songs. Avalanche, is a brilliant opener, brooding and mysterious. Other standouts include, famous blue raincoat, and, joan of arc. Diamonds in the mine, is a fun singalong and, love calls you by your name, is another highlight, as is, dress rehearsal rag, and, last year's man, Oh what the hell, they're all amazing. With the exception of, I'm your man, Cohen's best albums are the first three, this being the last of them. He would continue to make great music, but these records are the reason why Leonard Cohen is spoken in the same breath as Bob Dylan and Joni Mitchell. Excellent.

A great album that has a much broader range of sounds and moods than his other folk albums.Diamonds in the Mine and When Love Calls You By Your Name are just brilliant.

Excellent 3rd album from Leonard Cohen, lyrically dazzling as you would expect, but it also has quite a rich sound despite the sparse instrumentation. Like this album, I think Cohen's voice is quite underrated.

Only 8 tracks is its only downfall, but it does contain two of his best in Last Years Man and Famous Blue Raincoat, but I get the feeling that in years to come a song like Joan Of Arc will have grown in stature.
