I've enjoyed everyones input in this thread. I think, Tom, you said it, with this:
No kidding.! It would be a very good day for anyone, if they could write like Leonard on a 'bad day'.other artist could only dream about the "worst" Cohen-song; TNS.
Also, we can change our feelings about a record. It takes a while to take root in our lives. Like a book. One day, you can't read it. On another, you can't put it down.
And I agree when Joe said:
At this late date, Leonard is still 'movin' on' and it's really quite inspiring. Suspenseful, too!They are not simply collections of songs but, taken together, the progression of songs tells another story. I'm interested in hearing what others think of this notion.
