CD Reviews

Leonard Cohen, singer and poet
Charly McCarthy | Va | 01/16/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I finally bought a cd of Mr Cohen's after reading that
Bob Seger was listening to his latest. It is excellent with
superior lyrics with great melody and presentation. He is frequently
compared to Bobby Dylan, with some truth, however his songs sometimes
have too much in common- a more diverse tempo would help- such as
from Dylan where " the times are always changing".

I think I read he is coming out with a new book of poetry,
possibly to be part of the Spoleto festival in Charleston."
Simply arranged, beautifully performed. A Cohen masterpiece

"I got the urge to listen to this disc today. It's been a long time since I've listened to it in its entirety. Collected here are some of Cohen's strongest songs, the ones he will be remembered for: "Suzanne," "So Long, Marianne," "Hey, That's No Way to Say Goodbye," and "The Stranger Song." Cohen, in his world-weary way, sounds so young on these songs!

"Songs of Leonard Cohen" was my first introduction to Cohen's music. I bought a used LP at a thrift shop for fifty cents and I became hooked. Cohen's words and music are penetrating, and took root in my soul. That's how affecting some of his songs are. Simply and tastefully produced by John Simon, this album is timeless."
