MUSIC OMH (US) -- REVIEW: OLD IDEAS
Even the songs grappling with big themes have a resonant, personal and idiosyncratic touch. Every languid melody and line of language is shot through with Cohen's meditative, contemplative style. The wonderful Crazy To Love You, up there with his best songs, sees him reflect sardonically but also with genuine self-awareness... With simple, delicate moments of memorable poignancy such as Banjo or Amen, he has now made a late masterpiece. Perhaps he can rest a little now, comfortably perched at the top of the Tower of Song.
