REVIEWS
Average points: 4.82 (Reviews: 11)
******
Ich habe alle Alben aber kann dieses sehr empfehlen
****
War schon ne besondere Type, klingt einfach alles gleich und singen kann er überhaupt nicht...ein Geschichten Erzähler, ein halber Musiker aber kein Sänger.
******
Er hat eben einen ganz eigenen Gesangsstil, den ich sehr gut vertragen kann - besser jedenfalls als großartige andere Songwriter wie Bob Dylen oder Neil Young, deren Songs ich lieber von anderen Künstlern höre. Wunderbare Übersicht einer einzigartigen Karriere.
******
Gibt in der Tat einen ausgezeichneten Überblick über das Schaffen Cohen's - Für den interessierten Einsteiger sehr empfehlenswert
****
Als Einstieg sicher zu empfehlen..sonst seh ich es schon sehr ähnlich wie Sacred.
Meist zu monoton, sein Sprechgesang überzeugt definitiv nicht bei allen Songs. Und die sich besser auskennen, fällt gleich mal auf dass "Lover Lover Lover" hier leider fehlt..

Zudem gibt es Unterschiede, meine zweite CD ist da zumindest anders strukturiert.

Wenn man nur eine CD von diesem Sänger zu Hause haben möchte, dann DIESE HIER!!!
Genial die Zusammenstellung seiner grössten Hits.
******
Einer der besten überhaupt
*****
Essential indeed.
*****
Fantastisches Doppel-Album mit allen grossen Hits, den genialen, witzigen und melancholischen Texten und der unverkennbaren markanten Stimme von Leonard Cohen. Sehr stark.
****
Lohnt sich durchaus - eine ansprechende Selektion eines Mannes, der zwar mein Gusto nicht immer traf, aber auch nicht wirklich weit dran vorbeizielte mit seiner Musik.
*
RIP und lasst ihn ruhen. Schade, dass die Alben erst dann wieder entdeckt werden, wenn jemand tot ist. Sogar noch toter als die "Amigos" (die halt einfach so aussehen). Es grüsst der einzig und echte Franzl mit Christine.
