Judging by the other reviews, I'm a younger Cohen fan at 31. I was introduced to his music through the movies "Pump up the Volume", "Natural Born Killers", and the recent "Secretary". Like many, the thing that draws me to Cohen more than his words, is his deep voice. Much to my suprise, that voice doesn't kick in until track 13 on disc one. Everything pre-"Hallelujah" sounds like a different person. Don't get me wrong. Still good stuff, but it sounds like he hadn't hit puberty yet on those first 12 songs. Anyway, great stuff before, and especially after that point. "I'm your man", "Everybody Knows", "Tower of Song", and most of disc two is incredible. My personal favorite is "Waiting for the miracle" from the album "The Future". It's hauntingly good. He also has an early "hits" disc, and a later (deep voice) collection too, if you wanted to go that route. Whichever you choose, listen to Leonard Cohen.

Bought this for hubby's birthday and I knew nothing of this artist. Reviewed other comments and picked this DVD. He loves it and I also like it. Think irt portrays the essence of his music and song writing.

Hard to say anything bad about this man. He is truly one of a kind. A writer and a performer. Saw a tv clip once of Prince Charles talking about Cohen and that is high praise from high up!

A lot of oldies on here that I have not heard for a long time. Some that I know better covered by other artists and nice to hear his take on them.

I like this album for the good song Susan, mostly. As well Leonard's voice seems much better then than now.
