    Get In Touch

    Very poetic lyrics and presented in a soft and soothing tone. If you need inspiration, some words to set you into a thought provoking process, or you simply want to be entertained, then this is the music you need to listen to. Really listen. No matter where you are, no matter what you're doing this incredible music/lyrics will put you in the middle of yourself, your thoughts, your moods...certainly triggers you to get to know yourself on another level! If you need some relief from stress and tangled emotions, then listen. Deep voice, simple and poetic.

    New Fan

    I'd never heard of Leonard Cohen a month ago. I was surfing the TV stations one evening and heard this raspy, sexy voice, so stopped to watch what was happening. I was an immediate fan and bought his newest CD. I am not disappointed at all - in fact, I am delighted

    intense!

    We'd only heard of Cohen this past year and were thoroughly delighted with his style! A Canadian ice skater (Gary Beacom) used his 'I'm Your Man'' and it was totally appropriate for the program. Ten New Songs is an intense disk! We didn't think Cohen could be any better!

    Ten New Songs and The Same Great Sound

    Leonard Cohen is an aquired taste. No one is ever going to describe his vocals as ''soaring'' or laud him for the wonderful harmony section that lifts a song to the next level. No, Leonard Cohen for all of his world weary growling, is a poet of the last call at two in the morning. He's someone who knows what its like in that smokey bar at 2:00 AM. He knows and he sings of what he knows. In Ten New Songs he sings about ''the Christ who has not risen from the caverns of the heart'' and about falling from grace in the middle of falling in love. There's pain in the messages here so only real people with life lesson problems need apply to listen. In the end, when you're good and done, then you'll understand your own pain a little more and you'll probably have a little less. Yes, Leonard Cohen is an aquired taste but then again so is any thing that's good for you........I gotta go listen again. Bye.

    Fantastic Meditation on Life

    Compared to Cohen's last outing, ''The Future'', this new album ''Ten New Songs'' is a stripped-down sound, with simple orchestration and soft sounds. The lyrics he sings are as still as deep and thought-provoking as ever. Dark and light in perfect balance, Cohen takes us by the hand and leads down the backroads of his life, and into the crossroads of ours. It is very apt that this album is released in October, the beginning of Fall, Winter is just around the corner, and this will be the soundtrack for my Fall/Winter 2001.
