Re: "Leonard Cohen Albums From Worst To Best"

I've seen a lot of those these last weeks, and it never stops to amaze me how different they all are. Some ratings can be all twisted upside down, and still make sense. Says a lot about the depth in his discography. The way he touches the listener is so different for each one. But I'm your man would...

A million candles burning For the help that never came You want it darker We kill the flame Hineni Hineni My best friend since I was 15 years old, and realized that life was unbearable, sometimes my only friend, but always there to speak to me through his poetry and songs. Good luck on your journey....

Re: The Darker Album and the Songs

I arrived my office this morning, eager to get down in my chair, get my headphones on and shut down the world outside. Had my first three rounds of the album now, listening intensly. No doubt in my heart, this is a masterpiece, I'm putting this one high above OI and PP, even if I loved both those al...

Re: And this is why Leonard Cohen will be awarded the Nobel Literature Prize as well

I'm so happy for Bob today, so incredibly well deserved. But this also means that there is no way Lc is ever getting it. The prize can not be given post mortem, and there is no way that the Nobel will be awarded twice in a few years to a musician. Absolutely no way. It took 50 years for Bob to get i...

Re: Sad news: Marianne Ihlen dies

Norway's biggest newspaper, (vg.no) has three full pages today in the written paper, about Marianne's life and her last hours.

Beautiful words, touching story.
The article is online, but in a paid area.

Re: Sad news: Marianne Ihlen dies

I remember sitting a few chairs away from Marianne at one of the Oslo concerts. I was on the second row, and she was on the third. In the break I couldn't help myself, but had to talk to her, I felt like a stalker, a crazy fan, but she responded so nice. Such a beautiful woman, a kind soul. We talke...

Re: Cohen returning to Sligo 2015????

Sorry, but I do like the word "Premature"

That's not a NO, just "a bit early to come out", like a premature born child.
Probably not his point, but I like to to believe that's what he meant.

Re: 12 Leonard Cohen Albums, Ranked From Worst to Best

Various Positions (1984) Everyone knows this as the one with "Hallelujah" (and perhaps to a lesser extent, the one with "Dance Me to the End of Love"). Beyond those two songs, though, there's a sense that Cohen was treading water here. Nearly two decades into his career, he seemed ripe for a creati...

Re: Leonard about The Bench, Smoking, and Friends

Thanks, made my morning to read this.

I love how he always choose every word wisely, he never waste one of them.
The art of using as few words as possible, but still make the whole point.
He is the king of that art. I wish more people would learn that.
