Description
Acclaimed for his poetic lyrics and polished song arrangements, the late Leonard Cohen took his time when recording; nonetheless, the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer was clearly inspired, returning here with his third album in five years, produced by his son Adam Cohen. On this typically sophisticated disc, the 82-year-old Cohen's voice exudes life experience and his muse has clearly not deserted him, and he is backed on various tracks by choir, organ, and strings. Along with the tense title track, the nine new songs here include "Treaty," "Steer Your Way," "Traveling Light," "If I Didn't Have Your Love," "Leaving the Table," and "It Seemed the Better Way."

"There are moments when [this disc] gently pushes Cohen's sound to places it hasn’t really gone before.... Meanwhile, the lyrics are as fascinating and conflicted as ever.... Throughout, he sounds wise and honest, and—despite the occasional lyrical protestations of weariness—full of life."—The Guardian (London)

"Cohen's voice remains strong, measured and assured. There is, as ever, flashes of playful humor in his wonderful use of language. The dignified music also reflects his concerns, at times hymnal in intensity, but it would be wrong to think these nine tracks morbid or depressing; Cohen's humanity shines throughout."—Irish Times
