Have a Good Time, But Get Out Alive (Cleveland International). Review by Bob Pomeroy.
Your Future Our Clutter (Domino). Review by Matthew Moyer.
The Fallen resembles Akira Kurosawa’s Rashomon, trying to get at the story of The Fall by letting everyone tell their conflicting versions of the band’s true story. And by everyone, Matthew Moyer means EVERYONE.
Tim Footman’s biography describes the sexual, intellectual, depressing romantic that is Leonard Cohen, leaving Jessica Whittington no choice but to put a little whipped cream on it and eat every word with a spoon.
There’s only one man whose swagger can quiet a crowd of 600,000 people on the cusp of rioting. His name is Leonard Cohen, and once again the poet/musician surfaces from images of the past.
Matthew Moyer finds himself in the same concert hall as Leonard Cohen, holy clown, dour prophet, borscht belt crooner, and true legend — in Tampa, Florida, no less.
Live in London (Sony). Review by Jessica Whittington.
