Review in Mail on Sunday

Post by StBruno » Mon Jan 23, 2012 1:39 am

Wouldn't normally admit to perusing the British right wing press (I was visiting relatives, honest), but from the Mail on Sunday (22/01/2012) under the heading 'The old ones really are the best', a review by Tim de Lisle gives Old Ideas five stars.

Not much new, but a few amusing observations:

'At 74 [sic], Leonard Cohen's songs still have gravity, grace and wit'

'Musically, it's like late Dylan, but lyrically, it knocks him into a cocked Stetson.'

'It's the best album ever made by a senior citizen.'

If anyone wants a scan of it let me know.

The way the publicity machine is going, I'm surprised they're not giving away free copies of "Old Ideas" with The Mail On Sunday!

Then for the first time, many would admit to having bought The Mail On Sunday :lol:
I guess it all started for me sometime around Christmas 1967 and now, goodness me, it's.........2018 and over fifty years later.
No one ever listens to me. I might as well be a Leonard Cohen record.
