AS A COHEN FAN,
This review is from: A Thousand Kisses Deep (Audio CD)
Firstly, I must say that Ms Tobin and her band are excellent and the arrangements are different., hence the 4 stars. However, as a Leonard Cohen fan who likes to hear female covers of his songs, i.e. Jennifer Warnes, Anjani, Sharon Robinson, Judy Collins etc. I must say that the songs are taken at too fast a tempo (with the notable exception of 'Anthem').
So, to sum up, if you are a Christine Tobin fan, I think you will love this album. If you are a Cohen fan, please listen to it first.
I'm going to download 'Anthem' and add it to my iPod playlist of female Cohen covers. Thank you Ms Tobin for spreading the word on the great man.
