    Leonard Cohen's gem in the gravel

    I'll preface this review by saying I've been a fan of Leonard Cohen for a long time, so this review reflects neither a Cohen neophyte nor an objective listener. With "Popular Problems" , Cohen continues to exhibit the poet's sensitivity and wordsmithy that we've always appreciated. Cohen's getting older, and his voice has dropped further underground - this album's generally bleak themes are a perfect fit for his smoky bluesman growls. That there's a variety of musical styles present on this album is a testament to Cohen's versatility and musical sensibility. Yes, there are the drum machines and trumpets and female background vocals, but you'll find some intriguing additions to the typical Cohen repertoire here. Still, it always goes back to his lyrics, and they are as great as we've come to expect from him. You've probably heard "Almost Like the Blues" (heck, even my 2 month old son stopped crying to listed to that when it came on the car radio - seriously), but pretty much every track is fantastic here. My only real complaint: at 36 minutes, I just wish it were longer...

    Another great album from a great singer and songwriter. It was so good that I bought the rest of his albums.

    Excellent sound quality with good writing and musical arrangements. The backup singers add much depth to the arrangements and the singing by Leonard is excellent although I realize his voice may not be to everyone's liking.

    Leonard is the MAN. Great CD of new songs, what are you waiting for? It's a basic CD package, nothing fancy, but the music.

    This is my first Leonard Cohen CD. Nice relaxing songs. I heard the songs written for Jennifer Warnes and love songwriting his style.
