Re: not quite the end?

Geoffrey, I believe I recall reading in Sylvie's book about Cohen's various recording sessions over the years, and that there was unreleased material from at least some of them. We know that is true, as when CD versions of his first three albums were released they included "bonus tracks." Leonard wa...

Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's albums

I have refrained from reading comments about the new songs so my impressions would not be influenced. "Happens to the Heart" is the first song on the album, so I guess that is a good starting point for discussion. The music for "Happens to the Heart" is astounding. That, as much as the lyrics, is wh...

Does anyone else hear a delicious dreamy Pink Floyd quality in "The Hills" when the song opens up at "And she will be born to someone like you..." ??
I hear that as well!

Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's albums

Fifty-two days ago "Along the Way" attained zero energy. Zero energy like when a smoldering ember in the fireplace fades and fades and then changes from dull orange to gray, no longer able or willing to radiate light. But our work here is not yet completed! I have just listened to some new songs tha...

Re: "Thanks for the dance" - the new album

Thanks, Marie, for finding this. Some clues as to what to expect: Adam said they decided to "use as many (of Leonard's) musical signatures to make people go through a kind of journey of Leonard Cohen's music...the rolling guitars, the background vocals from women...a lot of chord changes." Also, I g...

Re: Posthumous album

I would expect that, over the next couple of years, there will be several "official" releases of songs. Some may be unreleased songs, or versions of old ones, that were recorded by Leonard, but which for various reasons never saw the light of day (think "Storeroom"). There may also be "official" rel...

Re: "Go clear" in Famous Blue Raincoat?

dstegall, the show sounds intriguing, wish I was closer to Atlanta and could see it.

What Cohen songs does your band cover? If available, would love see a video or two.

Good luck on October 24!

The album of ten new songs is scheduled to November
This suggests a good title for the album, "Ten New Songs." It sounds weirdly familiar, however.

Re: "Leonard Cohen Albums From Worst To Best"

Bil, Thanks so much for your post--your first one, in fact, welcome! Your recollections and thoughts were interesting indeed. Paragraphs two through four represent the best succinct summary of Cohen's artistic career I have ever read, so much information conveyed with so few words. I think I will pr...

Re: Leonard Cohen's statue will be unveiled in Vilnius

My first impression was a bit negative. Why, I thought, is the statue's coat so old and worn looking, Leonard would never present himself like that? Several days later I looked back and read some of the comments, and they allowed me reconcile this conundrum: in his later years the impeccable wardrob...

Re: never-ending gallery

Lisa, I am a bit out of my element here, but followed everything you wrote, and my eyes never glazed over. There is a possibility (which Plato acknowledged or at least implied) that nobody will ever obtain knowledge of the forms (in one's corporeal lifetime, anyway), but by maintaining a healthy ske...

Re: never-ending gallery

Yes, Lisa cogently reported on a book that only few would dare to pick up, and far fewer would be able to comprehend, and her result was readily readable. For me that would have been a time-consuming exercise; Lisa, please assuage my writer's ego and tell me it took a bit of effort to compose your p...
