Re: Leonard Has Passed Away

Am I in a minority finding the "Optional final verse" both inappropriate and offensive? My feelings are the same as yours. I am so sick and tired of every single web forum I visit, that have absolutely nothing to do with politics, will always have at least one politically charged posting. I came to...

Re: the fools they locked up the wrong man

"They locked up a man who wanted to rule the world...the fools, they locked up the wrong man..." That's the poem in its entirety, it's not a quote. It's pretty simple really they locked up a man who "wanted" to rule the world rather than those who do. Thank God you corrected the poem. I googled the...

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

The album as a whole I'm reasonably confident is at a minimum as good as Popular Problems which I love. Whether it will pull ahead remains to be seen with repeated plays but it's distinctly possible... I love Popular Problems. I think it was Leonard's best album since Ten New Songs...Perhaps even b...

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

As I anxiously await the arrival of "You Want it Darker" next week, I was thrilled when I learned the entire album was available for streaming already. I hate hearing snippets of a new album. I need to hear the entire piece when listening for the first time. Anyway, I waited until about 1am (which w...

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

It shocks me to see how much information people seem to want before the actual release. Unless I can actually hear the album before release, I prefer to be completely surprised the first time I press the PLAY button.

Re: article :Cohen and Dylan in the same year

Yes indeed, 2 mighty fine albums but for my money Tempest trumps Old Ideas by a distance. That said, Old Ideas is a stately effort with some great stuff but it somehow remains slightly less than the sum of its parts for me. I return to Popular Problems much more than Old Ideas, it seems more free a...

Re: HAPPY 82nd BIRTHDAY LEONARD!!

Leonard, you have given us so much. You've given us your words. You've given us your wisdom. You've given us your fears. You've given us your being. Words have not been invented yet to accurately describe what your music and poems have meant to me over the years. I hope you are well and I hope you a...

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

I just quickly looked through Mediamonkey at my Cohen collection. Some running lengths as far as original studio albums go: Popular Problems is 36 minutes long, New Skin for the Old Ceremony is 37 minutes, Songs From a Room is 35 minutes and Various Positions is 35 minutes. These are rips from CD's,...

Re: Leonard's new song in Peaky Blinders

I just binge watched Peaky Blinders last week. I've heard people talking about it, so I decided to give it a chance. Boy, am I glad that I did. The show is fantastic...if you don't mind a fair amount of violence or blood. It's not gratuitous though. I was engrossed in the episode when I heard the fi...

Re: 'Biggest concert ever'

I'm a HUGE fan of Roger Waters. Pink Floyd & Roger's solo work is my favorite music ever followed closely behind by Leonard Cohen. Plus, I really like some of the other acts set to perform at this show. Unfortunately, the price for tickets was just ridiculous in my opinion. Heck, if you wanted a sin...

New Tribute Song: Leonard Cohen's Sandwich

The author states that this is a tribute to Leonard, so who am I to question it?

Re: New layout on the Forum

I have switched back to the original colors as well. I do not like the Latte colors at all. There just isn't enough contrast and personally I find that color to be very ugly to look at for more than a few seconds. Thank you, Jarkko, for allowing us the ability to switch it back. Honestly, I don't th...

Re: Leonard on Rolling Stone's List of Greatest Songwriters

Roger Waters didn't make the Rolling Stone magazine list of Greatest Songwriters? But Taylor Swift did... That is laughable. :roll:

Re: Leonard Cohen: 10 of the best

Hmmm... Top 10 lists can sometimes be interesting. For the most part, they're boring when music journalists release them. But, that's just MY opinion, just like a Top 10 list is someone else's opinion. I think his list is fine. Including 'Almost Like The Blues' as #10 was a bold move. Bold moves sti...
