Each song stripped back – desolate, naked and sensual. The most enigmatic, mysterious and sub textual songwriter the English speaking world has ever known. Leonard Cohen’s exact sense of prose, his wry humour and his courage to wrestle with the unspoken, forgiving human frailty with the brush of each line. His recent spectacular world tour of stadium venues has been successful beyond belief but has not, with regret, exposed the solitary inner strength of the songs in their original form.
