    Cohen: The Prophet

    Leonard Cohen is the only sage left. We must seek his advice. That's why listened to this adnosiatom. Like all the great Jewish prophets, Cohen on this album gives humanity a choice through a narrative story. Either we can go totalitarianism, "Give me Stalin and St. Paul/Give me back the Berlin Wall..", the way of The Future. Or we could go the way of the American Dream, "The cradle of the best and worst..." Democracy. That his choice and as we have seen the Godfather of Gloom has predicted what we thought a brave new world turned into a diabolical age of terrorism, rampant global corruption, drugs on the loose, so on. Remember: LC is always first to the crime scene, you just get the details from him and your case is set.

    A little wild bouquet

    This a really great album, for the music and for the lyrics. And forget the silly review posted by bn.com - the reviewer obviously never listened past the first song. The apocalyptic vision of The Future will shock you into listening properly to the rest of the album, which is much more positive and optimistic, without ever falling into being comforting. A sample: 'Ring the bells that still can ring / Forget your perfet offering / There is a crack in everything / That's how the light gets in.' Or: 'I'm stubborn as those garbage bags that time cannot decay / I'm junk but I'm still holding out this little wild bouquet.'
