7digital What we said: In a year where music fans have had to endure the loss of legends like David Bowie, Prince and Merle Haggard, Leonard Cohen’s return is a cause for celebration. Now 82 years old, and in possession of a voice so gravelly you could re-surface roads with it, Cohen remains to be a force to be reckoned on his third album in six years, addressing death, spirituality and the recent dark turn in North American politics, in typically poetic fashion. Meanwhile, production comes courtesy of his son Adam, and the record’s diverse arrangements are handled by Old Ideas/Popular Problems-collaborator Patrick Leonard, encompassing everything from gypsy fiddle to dolorous surf guitar, gospel singing to monastic harmonies. The result is a timeless record that resonates deeply in our troubled times. Long may Cohen continue.
