Leonard Cohen plays it extremely cool here and the distance makes for some intermittently charming moments. Definitely not a high impact record.

Cohen also felt in the awful sounding eighties trap. Bad production throughout with awful female singing.

Although Leonard Cohen only released two albums in the 1980's, it is still very much apparent that he was one of the very few artists of the 60's/70's that got through this decade unscathed. Along with Tom Waits, his output did not suffer the same lack of quality control that hampered the likes of Bowie, Dylan, Neil Young, Lou Reed and Van Morrison. Although, strangely enough, the latter four all released something of a comeback album in 1989.

Lyrically, like pretty much every other Leonard Cohen album, this is great, the synths add another dimension to the tracks and they don't sound dated at all. With only the slight exception of Jazz Police, every track here is excellent, particularly the title track, I Can't Forget, Take This Waltz and the immortal Tower Of Song.

Leonard Cohen's best album of the eighties(well, there were only two), and certainly one of his best ever, I'm your man, sees Cohen swapping the guitars and piano's for synthesizers to create a brilliantly atmospheric soundscape. Off course this wouldn't mean a thing if the songs weren't any good, but fortunately the songs here are some of the best of Cohen's career, and that's saying something. First we take Manhattan, take this waltz, and, tower of song, are all stunning, as is, ain't no cure for love, and, everybody knows. An excellent album and a great example of how an artist can take their music to other places without losing any of their quality. Superb.

One of his best. I prefer most tracks live on his live albums or "boots". Awesome songwriter! MEZ

An eerie, dark, haunting masterpiece. Every song here is gold.

Very strong album. It was great to hear him take a new path musically from his earlier work.
