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

Without putting everyone on a downer, I truly believe this will be Leonard's last album. From the press release referring to it as a culmination of all his works, to Adam referring to it as an "Urgent" album, his words to Marianne before she passed, the lyrics of the new song, and the speed of whic...

Re: Title song 'You Want It Darker' now on YouTube and Spotify etc

Ah yes, that article...not at all sure he's right about that "edit" at 2.06 as the very slight background distortion occurs in the middle of the word "murder" from what I can make out.

I don't see the point of having an embargo on reviews so close to the release.
I'm sure all reviews will heap praise , whet our appetite , and increase sales !

Re: A new perspective on ' Come Healing'
