2 Leonard Cohen Popular Problems
"At the age of 80, Leonard Cohen has created a masterpiece. It’s a smoky, late-night concoction delivered with a deceptively light touch that masks deep seriousness. Cohen’s couplets are so satisfying, you can’t help but smile when he reaches the inevitable rhyme, even when the underlying message is disturbing."

2 Leonard Cohen - Popular Problems
"Only darkness now," Leonard Cohen announced ominously on Popular Problems, released in October to coincide with his 80th birthday. It was his bleakest, most ravaged album since Songs Of Love And Hate, over 40 years ago, a lament for a burning world, where slaughter and war are commonplace, calamities to which he responded with grim vigour and much great writing.
