Leonard Cohen's new album, Old Ideas, comes out on January 31. This is his last album, because he's reached that point where he is becoming too frail to continue for long. He knows it. He knows it well. At age 77, he's preparing for his end. This album is his discussions with God about that subject. But Leonard being Leonard, there's plenty of sly wit and self-deprecating humor to leaven the darkness. And women. Can't forget the women. Leonard does like his women.
There's nothing new here, but then neither is Leonard Cohen. This is "Darkness". Enjoy.
