Re: Popular Problems - Second Impressions

PP has aged gorgeously- it our classes Old Ideas for me by a distance despite the latter having some terrific songs. But it feels a bit flabby and self important compared to PP which is just the epitome of cool...

Re: New Album announced: 'You Want It Darker'

Great stuff- and good to know we'll be able to get our hands on the single and the remix by the end of the month. I'll be getting both for sure - can you tell us the exact release date Jarkko?

Re: New Album announced: 'You Want It Darker'

October issue of Uncut is at the newsstands here in Finland. No review in this issue. Probably the same with MOJO, thanks to the embargo. So looking forward to the November issues. Think the October issues have been out since Mid August (in UK/Irl at any rate) and the Nov issues should be out in th...

Re: New Album announced: 'You Want It Darker'

Mojo came out last month on the 15th so presumably it will be around that date again in September so another week or so is my guess.

Re: How good is Live in London?

I'm not convinced by the sound of Live in London either. Doesn't seem to quite capture the wonder of Leonard's sound live. Not sure if it is the mix they used or the mastering. It's ok (and better than Live in Dublin) but Songs From the Road is a more rewarding listen for me, largely down to the sup...

Re: New Album announced: 'You Want It Darker'

No updates in the last few days? Any further titbits from those who heard the album would be most welcome. Sylvie Simmons said there was a review embargo currently in place. Her review should be in the next issue of Mojo. Any idea will there be any official reviews before that? In other words, when ...

Re: Complete Studio Albums of LC - Box of 11 CDs

Apologies- ignore and forgive my ignorance. I thought from something I read on the Net Paris version didn't contain Ms. Warned' beautiful backing but it does so all well. Lovely sounding album remaster. I see Old Ideas is now included on the ITunes version of the release. Wonder if that has been rem...

Re: Complete Studio Albums of LC - Box of 11 CDs

Jarkko, I'm only discovering this box set now and I'm Your Man tracks via ITunes. They sound great!!! Big improvement sound wise over the original cd. Sounds much more analogue based, less tinny and fuller. This has made my day... Almost. Take This Waltz is only the "Paris" version. Any idea where I...

Re: FROM LEONARD: HAPPENS TO THE HEART

Just noticed more people have now viewed this thread than its new album counterpart! Hope Leonard hasn't inadvertently sabotaged You Want It Darker's PR campaign...

A temporary phenomenon I'm sure but Happens in the Heart more than deserves its moment in the limelight.

Re: FROM LEONARD: HAPPENS TO THE HEART

The only problem with serving us up this gem now is that if any of the lyrics from the tracks on You Want it Darker don't measure up to this baby (a tall ask surely) I'll be saying to myself if only Happens to the Heart was on there... Flip side is it's something to dream about one day and worst cas...

Re: FROM LEONARD: HAPPENS TO THE HEART

Being a Dylan nut, I've been humming it to the melody of Mississippi - kind of reminds me of that track in ways I can't really explain. There's an emotional resonance to the fluidity of the language although hat's off Leonard, your writing here is even richer.
