This review is from: Blue Alert (Audio CD)
Much as I hate to be negative about anything even remotely connected to Leonard Cohen, this album just completely failed to live up to my expectations. I've tried - I've REALLY tried to get into it, but the first impression of an over-produced, jazz-lite snoozefest has been borne out time and time again. Of course the lyrics are brilliant - how could they not be? - and the melodies are fine - there's just no energy and none of the barely-concealed weltschmertz which makes Cohen himself so incredibly compelling. Deeply disappointing.
