Re: New recording of the song "Book of longing"

The song sounds like a discarded song recorded for You Want It Darker album or maybe for an album meant to be published after that. Phillip Glass version is totally different and the one from the radio program is different too.

Re: Old Ideas ...entire cd NPR radio

I'm listening to this album so hard that it hurts :-).

Re: Listen to "Banjo"

The music reminds me of "My Oh My" a song Leonard sang while on tour.

I always wanted some words about the recent work of Leonard Cohen (my favourite work). I'll practice my Spanish a bit, ha ha! :D - J...

The music of Undertow reminds me of some autumn nights by the seaside, those very dry windy days with stars on the sky, you could even see the Milky Way spiral... The music sounds really interesting and the melody just hangs or ascends or goes and goes (it doesn't solve to the tonic) like a constant...
