Re: New live album: Can't Forget

Never Gave Nobody Trouble.... not a stand out. Have to agree that the blues-y Cohen sound isn't my favourite. Love the concept of the new album. Slightly disappointed that there's not one or two others on there - Stranger Song has always been a favourite of mine in particular. But, can't complain. I...

Re: Popular Problems: Memorable Lines

Slow: A great song. 'A weekend on your lips, a lifetime in your eyes' :D :D :D I love this Album. This is probably my least favourite line on the album. It ranks up there with "I don't smoke no cigarettes / I don't need no alcohol" from the Darkness amongst my least favourite in any of his albums.....

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

Well the second list is far more to my liking - don't understand the first at all to be honest (unless the guy got into LC in the early 90s). Clearly I'm Your Man and The Future win a lot of plaudits. I understand why, so can't complain with their position on the lists, but they don't really do it f...

Re: Popular Problems - Album Reviews

Enjoying this abum. In particular I don't understand two criticisms: 1) Too much influence from the female vocalists/backing singers. Leonard's always had a pretty bad voice that needs supplementing. As he's gotten older he's become almost completely unable to hold a tune at all. Unless you want a w...

Re: Leonard is No. 1 at Glastonbury

I was there for that gig, absolutely incredible moment - 60 odd thousand people, most of whom didn't know his music too well, all enraptured.

And apparently he refused to be televised, it wasn't the BBC's decision. I think he even refused to have the cameras rolling.

Re: How to celebrate Leonard's 80th birthday

Love this idea.

Happy to contribute. 'Came so far For Beauty' is a good option. There's tonnes of possibilities in his work - but going to obscure may be unhelpful.

Re: Upcoming Leonard Cohen Live DVD

Harald... get a grip. For a live DVD, of course we don't want a singalong. For most, though, some audience participation in a live concert is a real plus, and understandably so. fusional "...of course we don't.........." Who exactly are "we" ?

Re: CONCERT REPORT: Brighton, AUGUST 28th 2013

Really enjoyed the show - maybe the best overall performance I've seen from Leonard and the group. Was sat C18 so it sounds like plenty of people posting here were around me and my sister - and one thing we both said to each other was how friendly everybody was at the gig - was very noticeable how e...
