Format: Audio CD
This 1984 album, the last of Cohen's folk masterpieces and one subtly spiced with country, never grows stale due to the intricacy of its arrangements - vocal & instrumental - while perennially revealing deeper layers of metaphysical & symbolic significance. Or as one ages one understands better! Particularly sublime is the interaction of male & female vocals calibrated to bring out the best in both. The devotion and the vocals of Anjani Thomas and Jennifer Warnes make a major contribution to the music's enduring beauty.

Cohen's gift of melody & rhythm finds buoyant expression in Dance Me to the End Of Love which may sound catchy and even frisky like a simple pop tune but if one pays attention multiple meanings & possibilities emerge. In contrast, Coming Back to You unfolds slowly and solemnly through a graceful melody wed to imagery that navigates delicately between romantic & divine love. The two tracks The Law and The Night Comes On evoke something of John Berryman's poetic sensibility ... The Moon and the Night and the Men, The Song of the Tortured Girl and above all, Sonnet number 34.

The Night Comes On may be the absolute highlight of this album, a rare gem ranking amongst the greatest of Cohen's songs. Like assembling a pearl necklace, it strings striking images of the domestic & personal, the universal, the spiritual, historical and prophetic on a thread of longing. As the song unfolds, the symbolism unleashes an almost supernatural power that stirs the psyche hinting at or conjuring vague specters of ancient memories.

Format: Audio CD
This is one of Cohen's most underrated albums. His career was at a bit of low point when it came out as it wasn't even released in the USA. Every song on this record is great. Standouts include, Dance Me To The End Of Love, Night Comes On, and the masterpiece The Captain. The melodies are nice and simple and the songs aren't overwrought with keyboards as some of his later albums were. In some cases the instrumentation is sparse and sombre which helps create a beautiful overarching sense of melancholy throughout the record. This isn't a typical pop record, it's an actual work of art; a rare occurrence in popular music over the last 100 years.

This 1984 album, the last of Cohen's folk masterpieces and one subtly spiced with country, constantly surprises with the intricacy of its arrangements - vocal & instrumental - while perennially revealing further facets of metaphysical & symbolic significance with the passing time. Particularly exquisite is the interaction of male & female vocals maintaining the balance that brings out the best in both. And no wonder, since both Anjani Thomas and Jennifer Warnes add their devotion and their voices.

Cohen's gift of melody & rhythm finds buoyant expression in Dance Me to the End Of Love which may sound catchy and even frisky like a simple pop tune but if one pays attention the lyrics provide glimpses of new meaning perceivable from multiple angles. Slow and rather solemn, Coming Back to You unfolds tenderly through a graceful melody wed to imagery that navigates delicately between romantic and divine love. The track The Law and the following, The Night Comes On, evoke something about the poetry of John Berryman ... The Moon and the Night and the Men, The Song of the Tortured Girl and above all, Sonnet number 34.

The Night Comes On may be the absolute highlight of this album, a precious stone ranking amongst the greatest of his songs, which weaves together striking images of the domestic & personal with the universal, the spiritual, historical and prophetic over an undertow of longing and in a tapestry of symbolism that stirs, provokes and hints at half forgotten eternal concerns.
