LEONARD COHEN / Old Ideas (2012)

Leonard the poet. He's 77 y/o and his soul is still a thing of beauty that shines through in every word he speaks. Expect simple guitars in support of his voice like the early days, heartfelt piano, lazy-day drums, dreamy female backing vocals and a feeling of drifting through redemptive waters on every track. There are no surprises, it's Leonard by numbers, but they're numbers we like. There's a little piece of Leonard's life in each of us and we're all the better for it.
