You can never go wrong with early Cohen. Lyrically the words are sculptured from pure gold, and floated on melodies from the mind of real genius. Leonard Cohen was part of my musical history, and this album is a treasure.

A classic; along with the Songs of LC and Songs from a Room my twenties were defined by these tracks.

This is my first Cohen album and it really is magnificent.

Cohen was 36 when it was released and the album has the feeling of an artist who fears his best days may be behind him. This is especially obvious in the lyrics of Last Years Man and Diamonds in the Mine. His voice in almost every song sounds world weary, bitter and angry. It leaves us with one of the best albums I've ever heard.

It takes a number of listens for the beautiful imagery and deep lyrics to lodge themselves in your brain and start to haunt you. Not to mention the beautiful music and arrangements.

It is also a very personal album. It is almost frightening to think that the events described in "Famous Blue Raincoat" actually happened. Cohen certainly sings it like they did.

I find myself unable to tire of listening to this masterpiece. Do yourself a favour and get it.
