Adam Cohen: the biography

It’s taken him rather longer that he might have expected, but singer-songwriter Adam Cohen has grown up.

The son of the legendary Leonard Cohen, all his life Adam had sought an artistic space beyond the reach of his father’s looming shadow. But in January 2007, at the age of 34, Adam Cohen owned up to his legacy. After years of declining to ... Read more in Amazon's Adam Cohen Store

5.0 out of 5 stars An amazing album, where have you gone Adam??? 8 Jan 2004
Format:Audio CD
This an album with more depth, feeling and truth than most albums you ever hear. Lyrically I think Adam is a match for his father, and musically not many artists manage to knit content so well with lyrical themes.
Like the late Jeff Buckley and Rufus Wainwright, Adam's debut is confident, brilliantly defined and as mature as the albums most create on a fifth album release.
I've had this album over four years and still listen without any skipping of the tracks. The only problem is you are left wanting more, and nothing so far is forthcoming from Adam.

5.0 out of 5 stars Breathtaking, raw, emotive 2 Jun 2012
Format:Audio CD
I've had this album for years and will get it out every so often. Each time it sounds new and fresh. Utterly love it. A lot of the songs are very angry and edgy, but there are also incredibly sweet, beautiful songs too. Give it a go, it's amasing!

5.0 out of 5 stars good song writing makes a comeback with adam cohen's cd 23 Jan 2000
By Ron Johnson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This Adam Cohen CD is uncompromisingly good. I hope Adam has more in store for music lovers like me. A friend gave me the CD, but i hesitated to play it because, hearing Adam's music for the first time, I thought it would be commercial and shallow much like a lot of music I hear today. I buy very few new releases fearing the new releases won't compare to the rock I love from the late '60s and early to mid '70's when artists had something to say about the turbulence of the times. Adam Cohen surprised me. Listening to the CD over and over, he continues to surprise me. He's good. Very good. Don't take this the wrong way Adam, but I hope you don't become a big star. If you do, please don't sell out.

4.0 out of 5 stars A promising debut from an exciting new voice 11 Sep 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
It's no doubt difficult following in the footsteps of a singer/songwriter as beloved as Leonard Cohen. But think, for a moment, about how many friends you have with sons. Are you friends with their sons as well? Or, how many of you are friends with your friends' fathers? Leonard has his generation and Adam has his own. And Adam's generation will no doubt fall in love with this crisp and promising debut. Adam writes radio-friendly, catchy hooks throughout the project, and his lyrics are competent enough on love songs like "Beautiful as You" and "Amazing." But when Adam is irritated, challenged, or downright pissed off, his anger and torment provide a springboard for darkly passionate art. "Tell Me Everything" has him confronting a friend who his girlfriend is sleeping with, "Sister" deals with a friend that dated Adam's sister because it was the closest he could get to sleeping with Adam (a 90's twist on a love triangle if ever there was one), and the chilling "Quarterback" (the album's hands-down best song) finds a disturbed narrator lamenting the love of his life falling for a more popular guy. But Adam doesn't only make good music when he's angry. "Down She Goes" paints a melancholy and touching portrait of a soul on the edge, "Cry Ophelia" offers tender advice to a troubled soul, and the starkly beautiful "Opposites Attract" depicts a less than perfect love affair. The production is eclectic and gorgeous throughout, and Adam's voice is effective in either a low, breathy register or a powerful midrange. No matter who this guy's father is (which, by the way, has as much to do with this project as Bob Dylan has to do with The Wallflowers...think about it), this polished and addictive debut places Adam Cohen with Fiona Apple, Duncan Sheik, and Alana Davis as one of the most promising debuts of recent years. Not that it should matter to us, but I'm sure Dad is proud.

4.0 out of 5 stars Genes will out...even if it takes awhile. 30 July 2002
By Elaine Bergstrom - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I admit that I am a huge fan of Adam's daddy, and that I discovered Adam via the Leonard Cohen home page. As a writer, to me the lyrics are everything, so I bought the CD at a place where I could preview the cuts and make certain I could understand the words. First play didn't impress. Though it is engineered beautifully, it was too pop for my taste. On later plays, the soul hidden beneath the rhythms grew on me. It's now one of my favorites for long drives. In one respect, he is far too much like his father. Adam, how long do we have to wait for CD #2?

4.0 out of 5 stars Good debut 1 Jun 2001
By Gilly Bean - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
A promising debut, and I think it's about time he releases another album. One thing I don't understand though, is why some people bought this album just because they are fans of his father. This is not Leonard, this is Adam, and he does not try to copy his father in any way. He has his own style of singing and songwriting that is more than able to stand on its own merits. Every song on here is good, although I must admit I am not too keen on "Quarterback". I think it's a bit too angry and crude, but that aside, this album is certainly worth having. the 12 page booklet includes all lyrics.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Set of Songs--Adam (Leonard's son) Cohen Holds HIs Own 10 Feb 2012
By Terrence Shulman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I stumbled upon this great recording from Leonard Cohen's son, Adam. Every song hits--especially "Quarterback" and "Your Sister." His lyrics echo his father's at times without being too clone-like. Even though my buddy, a big Leonard Cohen fan, took a listen and said, dryly, "the son needs to ripen a little bit," I'd highly recommend this CD and Adam's other CD "Like a Man" which is more mellow and folky but also has a lot of great songs and sounds even more like his father's work.
