This is the album that introduced Leonard Cohen to the world, and good music hasn't been the same since. With the most complex lyrics of any songwriter out there, this was like listening to Lord Byron if you he knew how to play the guitar. With the opening mellow chords of "Suzanne" you are hooked and addicted for life. Thank you or damn you Leonard. Just Kiddin. The legendary melancholy tone of Leonard Cohen has been propogated ever since this record, but he just sings his heart. The greatest man of the English Word to walk the planet in the last 100 years, LC, this is to you!

Released in 1968, ''The Songs of Leonard Cohen'' is the popular music's sensitive-stupendous, well-dressed bard's first album. And what an album! The icy wind from Montreal and the light breeze from Hydra make such a perfect mixture in it with the changeable draft of New York & Nashville. Among the twelve brilliant songs in the album, there is no weak one. These songs are about the complexity of life, fragility of women, faded passions, haunting memories, unforgiven confessions, artificial El Dorados and real mental collapses. It is completey out of your hands not to be mesmerized when you first hear ''Suzanne'', ''Master Song'', ''Stranger Song'', ''Sisters of Mercy'' and ''Stories of The Street''. More than thirty years after its release, the album could have maintained its magic anti-age structure. And ''the saddest singer'' in our planet continues teaching us sagely, about the beauty of desperate love for women, with his songs.
