"Forget about who wrote the songs, forget about trying to make comparisons, forget about whether or not the performances were worthy of a tribute. Simply take it as music. Leonard Cohen wrote great songs that here shows they were also great POP songs. So if you're into great music, especially pop songs, and can listen to music without biases or prejudices then you must pick up this disc. The first track "First We Take Manhattan" clearly exemplifies this. While a R.E.M. fan, this song is one of my favorites by them. Mike Mills as co-vocalist with lead singer Michael Stipes makes this an incredible track. Ian McCulloch has an incredible voice and this shows on "Hey That's No Way....". "I Can't Forget" sounds like any other great Pixies track. There are many other stand out tracks like That Petrol Emotion's "Stories of the Street," "Don't Go Home...," "Chelsea Hotel," "Hallelujah," and my favorite: Dead Famous People's "True Leaves No Traces," which transforms Cohen's beautiful lyrics into just a gorgeous pop song. Enjoy!"
