5.0 out of 5 stars His very best; all things considered, October 5, 1998
This review is from: I'm Your Man (Audio CD)
As a fan who has every original Cohen album, this one is quite simply the best. "Songs Of" will always be a sentimental favorite but "I'm Your Man," from beginning to end is one the most enlightening musical voyages you will ever take. Lyrics have always been Cohen's strong point but now we have a maturity in the music itself, laced with just enough pop/rock licks and tricks that my Oldies-loving wife even likes some of these songs. How coincidental that his voice is at its masculine best to match the penetrating lyrical expeditions. No wonder a new generation of music fans and performers alike fell in love with this guy {re: the tribute albums that followed}. This album is the perfect cure for the unidentifiable musical phlegm that is spewing from too many radio speakers near and far as you read this. Leonard Cohen is quite simply too cool for the charts and too intense for the masses. Buy this, spend a quiet weekend listening, and find out why.
