Kansai Time Out (Japan) review

Leonard Cohen
Dear Heather (Columbia)
Seldom has a man’s fortune changed so much. From being the 1960s poet of doom and gloom, Leonard Cohen at 70 has outlasted most of his contemporaries and seems to be having the last laugh. His rise in critical status is fully justified on the evidence of this latest work, which might even lay claim to being his best yet. Ably assisted with vocals, arrangements and songwriting by Anjani Thomas and Sharon Robinson, Cohen’s songs now have a sparse, lightness of touch. Far from being depressing, this is varied, quirky, surprising and ultimately uplifting.
