    Three in a row

    Leonard Cohen's "You Want It Darker" continues his end-of-career winning streak of modern classics that started this decade with "Old Ideas" (2012) and got even bolder with "Popular Problems" (2014). This time around, Cohen splits the difference between the former's mood and content with the latter's brevity. Not quite as fun as "Popular Problems" but still stunning. Long-time Cohen fans will not be disappointed.

    Perhaps the greatest songwriter of the last half century. A sobering reflective and resigned acceptance of his final times on this earth. He has said he was ready for the Lord. This album brilliantly declares that. This is one of the great albums of the year only matched by Bowie's own touching and edgy farewell Blackstar and Nick Cave's harrowing and brilliant treatise on love and loss on Skeleton Tree

    ..Released only a short time before Cohen’s death, You Want It Darker has become a fitting last release for the great Canadian singer-songwriter-poet; his pointed lyrics & superb musicianship remained of the highest quality to the very end, and while this album may not be the best starting point for the casual fan, it’s an essential title for the Leonard Cohen completist.

    Bought this as a gift for the person who introduced me to Leonard Cohen many years ago and we both loved it! We saw him in concert in NYC and he, as well as his entire entourage, were truly a sight to behold. So happy to have these memories, especially now that he's gone...put this into your CD player and have a listen. I'm sure you won't be disappointed!

    I've followed Leonard Cohen since the 70's.. After hearing of his death I needed to have his latest recording in my collection.... It is not an uplifting CD but effective given this was released right after his death and he kept on singing in his later life......

    Eerie Leonard Cohen album--perhaps the last

    You Want It Darker appeared under a month before Leonard Cohen died. It has the sound of a man ready to make that final transition, and frankly impatient to get on with it. Dark and deep. It may not be his last as I have read there are two more completed albums in the can.

    Like David Bowie, Leonard Cohen knew this was going to be his final release. Both cd's mention the pending destination. Leonard stayed busy the last ten years, releasing 3 excellent cd's plus a cd/DVD release. The great thing the music will live on.

    WE SAW THIS COMING & HE KEPT HIS WORD. THIS WAS THE LAST WORK LEONARD WOULD RECORD AND IT'S A LONG WAY AWAY FROM HIS SYLE FROM THE BEGINNING WHEN PEOPLE WOULD COVER HIM IN THEIR OWN STYLE WHILE HIS ALWAYS CHANGED.
