Re: "Thanks for the dance" - the new album

Re: "A new album of original Leonard Cohen songs is in the works"

This is great news, fair play to Adam for undertaking such an endeavour. However much talent and experience he has it must be a huge burden / challenge for him given the circumstances, good luck to the guy I say, look forward to hearing what come out! Anything is better than nothing, is hardly going...

Re: The Darker Album and the Songs

I must say the CD sounds a lot richer and more 'alive' than original stream. I'm no audio sonic snob by any means but the CD does sound a lot more vibrant with splashes of colour that the stream didn't have for me. The String Reprise at the end sounded almost flat on the stream in comparison to the ...

Re: The Darker Album and the Songs

Then comes a really important passage “I’m sorry for the ghost I made you be. Only one of us was real and that was me.” If indeed, he is talking to the “creator” this represents the “doubt” that the whole story isn’t real. Only the narrator is real. I read this part as that he used to make a ghost ...

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

Ms. Simmons also tweeted at one point that after 4 plays she was upgrading her one word review of the album from "great" to "magnificent". I don't know whether that upgrade post dates the writing of her review in Mojo or not. I imagine she gave it more than 4 spins before reviewing - at least one w...

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

As something of a 'lurker' here I just wanted to post thanks to all those that provided updates for the album that has had me salivating like an overexcited canine ever since I heard about it. Muchas gracias amigos :D
