  1. Michael Engelbrecht:

    „Nothing is hurried. Each lyric and melody is direct, in the here and now. Nothing is arm’s length. At other times in his career, Cohen has sung to his audience as if from afar, with a slight removal as if he was a fly on the wall, a bird on a wire.

    The new songs have no distance, and the singer is not observing from any kind of tower—lonely, wooden or of song. They are too naked and spare, and leave nowhere to run.

    To experience this music properly requires a kind of surrender and a permission to immerse oneself fully.“ – Douglas Haselgrave
