I'll do it myself.... What I'm getting at is that I absolutely love every one of his albums (including the much maligned DOALM). But I also happen to disagree with SOME of his ideas whether in interviews or in his songs and recently I have also begun to question atleast SOME of his writing style. My...

>>>>>The thing that tends to give me most pleasure in life is being wrong. It just doesn't happen enough, Wow !! I never would have guessed. I actually went back and read some of that thread and I still think TNS is a masterpiece (minus That don't make it junk) as are almost all of LCs albums. He is...

Partisan....I prefer to engage rather than indulge in sarcasm and mindless criticism as well as passing judgment on other people.
And I really do love TNS.

Thanks Chuckles. And talking of criticism...Is criticism of LC allowed on this board or is that not appreciated ?? The picture I get of LC on this site seems to be very one-dimensional (guru, saint etc etc) ...that causes me to lose respect for him or atleast lose interest in the person. Is he reall...

I give up....lost cause !!
Hear LCs first three albums...if the dull monotone is not depressing music then what is (compared to say Beatles records of that era) ?? And this not meant as a criticism...they are my favorites. Just putting things in perspective, atleast for myself.

Ok ..let me put it this way...I always thought I liked LCs music becoz' I liked dark, depressing and introspective music (I like lighter stuff too)!! But that's me...I can't speak for others, of course. And also, I may be mistaken on this but I think the "razor blade/music to slit your wrists by" co...

Very true Peter re' "Of course Leonard Cohen has....." I think I read that LC had only a couple of Tom Waits CDs and a couple of Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan CDs (Qawwali music). He also mentions in the Reyjavik interview that whenever he goes to a new city the local country music station is the first one ...

Well, what can I say...I have to respectfully disagree. I do consider many of his songs to be depressing coz' they make you think. Nothing wrong with that !! I remember also feeling very depressed recently after watching the Anne Frank movie (with Ben Kingsley) coz' that made me think too.

I still don't get it......why is everybody out to prove that LC's music is NOT depressing ??? The number of posts denying that fact almost makes the point to the contrary. I think his music is more introspective with a substantial dose of depression, atleast relatively speaking. Well, introspection ...

Lizzytysh.....I wanted to keep it general 'a raging storm' rather than specific ' a tornado'. Well, no....the truth is I thought the original quote was ' a storm in philadelpia' and then when I checked it was ' a tornado in Texas'. And it was not a butterfly in china..it was in Brazil. well,,,there ...

Thank you Lizzytysh....but that little haiku (if it is legitimately one) was in fact blatantly inspired by a quote from a meteorologist who studied changes in weather patterns and chaos theory and then famously declared that "when a butterfly flaps its wings in china it initiates a chain of events t...

Ok, lacking original ideas I came up with this....

You in the daylight
Nothing, merely a butterfly (in China)
In the night, a raging storm.
