"You know, when you're listening to a Leonard record, it's like all the great songwriters. You're in the Leonard zone, you know? You're going to hear the female singers, you're going to hear the old-world instruments and all that kind of stuff. It's all those things that you hope for when you get a new Leonard record."
People either love or hate Leonard Cohen's voice. There doesn't seem to be much middle ground.
"Some people can't get past the singing," Sexsmith says. "I've always loved his voice, and some people will never comprehend it, because it is such an intimate thing."
I love his voice.
And what he has to say
Love those "serious" songs which are kinda funny & wry, all at the same time.
