Leonard Cohen: Famous Blue Raincoat

Leonard Cohen has been in the newspapers this week because of the release of his album Old Ideas. His later style may not be to everyone's taste: "Catch Leonard Cohen's UK tour before his voice drops outside the range of human hearing," as someone said when he released The Future in 1992.

Come to that, Cohen's earlier work wasn't to everyone's taste either, but I find this wonderfully bleak.

More about Leonard Cohen on his official website.
