The long journey into oblivion,
This review is from: Songs Of Leonard Cohen (Audio CD)
Leonard Cohen is unique in that his first album was his best, his second was his second-best ... and so on into current well-earned obscurity. The Suicide King has a deep bass voice and an obsession with minor harmonies, but his songs are actually life-affirming, as others have noticed. "I loved you in the morning, your kisses deep and warm, your hair upon the pillow like a sleepy golden storm". He is a brilliant wordsmith, more arty than Dylan. All these songs get under your skin, perhaps "The master song" being the most obsessive of all time. Certainly one of the great folk/rock albums.

After Mr Cohen's three year long world tour I think nobody can deny that his last two albums are by no means his worst. What do you think of Live in London and Songs from the Road?
