iTunes Review

You Want it Darker joins Old Ideas and Popular Problems in a trio of gorgeous, ruminative albums that find Cohen settling his affairs, spiritual (“Leaving the Table”), romantic (“If I Didn’t Have Your Love”), and otherwise. At 35, he sounded like an old man—at 82, he sounds eternal.

Envouté encore une fois...

Pourquoi suis-je toujours aussi bouleversé lorsque je découvre de nouvelles chansons de Leonard Cohen ? Je ne le connais pas personnellement, il ne me connait pas, il ne parle pas de ma vie ni de celle d'un de mes proches. Je ne suis pas Juif et je n'ai même pas la moitié de son âge.

Amazing again! Sublime :)

Always a pleasure to listen.
