Leonard Cohen - Songs From A Room

MM classics
Like his first album, Leonard Cohen’s second, "Songs From A Room", is notable more for the songs than the singing. Cohen has a superb sense of lyrics and this new album makes compelling listening. The atmosphere throughout is subdued, the songs simply arranged and presented so that the focal point is the word. Cohen, in fact, seems to have taken over from Dylan somewhat in this area of songwriting. Hard to pick out notable tracks as they are all good but ‘Story Of Isaac’, ‘The Old Revolution’, ‘Bird On A Wire’, and ‘Lady Midnight’ are worth mentioning as tracks to listen for.

This may be one of those "You probably know this already but just in case, ... " comments. Be that as it may, the first three Leonard Cohen albums, including Songs From a Room, will be re-issued on April 24, 2007 with remastered songs, fresh liner notes, and some previously unreleased tracks. I've posted some details at Cohen and Anjani Albums To Be Reissued
