Re: Leonard Has Passed Away

Thank you Leonard from the bottom of my soul.

You will live forever through your songs and poems. I promise I will keep them alive in my house until the day I die.

Re: Can't Forget: reviews of the new album

From that Times review above:

"Cohen also has a tendency to write the same song again and again. Field Commander Cohen is So Long, Marianne with different words; Night Comes On a mere note or two away from Suzanne."

Is this some kind of a joke?

Re: New live album: Can't Forget

gosh I'd never considered what might have been had she said yes. That really is something interesting to ponder.

I wonder what Leonard's view would be. Would he sacrifice all those songs for her sweet embrace? How I'd love to ask him!

Re: New live album: Can't Forget

Supposedly One of Us Cannot be Wrong was also written with Nico in mind. M Thanks, I did not know that. But hearing the lyrics is now makes perfect sense. My understanding is leonard was simply too old for her, she was a woman who preferred her men to be on the youthful side of existence, and a 30s...

Re: New live album: Can't Forget

poor leonard really did have a thing for nico. Joan of arc, take this longing....I wonder what other songs he wrote with her in his mind.

Unrequited love (lust!) is a terrible thing.

Re: Live in Dublin order of songs- do you like it?

I think the "high point" of the gig is entirely subjective. For me it changes with every gig. I also find the 2nd half of the show to be much more powerful than the first. Funny how everyone has differing views! I agree with you that it is a shame alexandra leaving is a pure solo for sharon (much as...

Re: Live in Dublin Sound

I have an actual stereo. Big JBL speakers and 100 watt per channel receiver and a high end cd player. Possibly peoples opinions of the sound are different depending on how they are listening? My system is much more revealing than an ipod or smaller music system would be. I've played it at home on m...

Re: Live in Dublin Sound

I am listening as I type, and through these headphones it sounds superb - rich and atmospheric and nuanced. Don't know what you're moaning about. Well said, Bennyboy. There will always be a few who like to claim superior technical knowledge and will complain about ANYTHING released. Fine. They are ...

Re: Live in Dublin Sound

Add me to the list of dissenters. However for me it isn't necessarily a mix thing but I find the vocals flat and raspy and the band sounds tired. I have seen every tour of the last few years and was at Brighton a few days before the Dublin recording. There Leonard's voice was mellifluous and strong...

That's really interesting. I always think Leonard around the time of Live in Isle of Wight is him at this best. I love the current Leonard, but I do believe his absolute peak was many decades ago.

Just my humble opinion of course.

Re: Live in Dublin Sound

Hi I have all his Live albums and have always being a bigger fan of live records more than his studio albums. I bought the live in Dublin album last friday and in my opinion it is the worst produced album i have ever heard. I am no music producer opr expert, but compared to the live in london and o...

Re: The Dublin live BluRay/DVD/3CD now announced

I now have received this item and feel like I can comment. I think it is very enjoyable, but there is something about it that makes it feel less special than the "live in london" release. It is hard to pinpoint why. I think the band and Leonard sounded better at the london gig, even though I preferr...

Re: Take this Waltz

I love the live versions I have of this song much more than the album version. It is a wondrous song.
