More like basso profundo,  otherwise agree.   Typesbad wrote:
It's nice to hear a baritone male voice, but there is noting else interesting in this song. Melody, words, instrumentation - all just boring as a bookkeeping textbook.
 

I always habitually bought everything Cohen put out, but I haven't loved any album he made since Various Positions in, what, 1984? Even that record had a couple of tracks I can live without but it's mainly excellent despite its arrangements and production.
Still, I agree with most of the more negative sentiments expressed here; I believe Cohen's work became dull and uninteresting.
Though I will say that Alexandra Leaving from this album is my favourite Cohen track since VP and almost certainly the best thing he did in his later years.

Leonard you sell out. This is so mediocre. Lost it.

Thanks, Not_Dark _Yet (one of my favourite Dylan songs by the way) I've already visited the Cohen tribute site and it's been very worthwhile.
Zzz . . . Zzz . . . Zzzz

Ever notice how his backup singer sound like Roger Water\'s backup singers? Maybe the same? Sounds good. Been listening to Leonard Cohen since \'6o\'s. \"Suzannne\". Amazing. He must have something goin\'on since he\'s gotta be what, 70\'s or so. Yet Rebecca DeMornay was his woman for a long time, if not still. He is an incredible poet.
his voice is strangely mesmerizing...
