The Detroit Free Press – Review: Live In London

Twenty-six songs offer a full sweep of moods as Cohen gets sentimental, gruff, wry and intimate, traipsing through a set (“In My Secret Life,” “Sisters of Mercy,” “Bird on a Wire”) that visits all the key corners of his five-decade career. Fans enamored of “Hallelujah” in its assorted covers — by John Cale and Jeff Buckley, among others — can absorb it here in the masterful hands of its creator. The majestic, stirring performance is a typical high point in a 2-1/2 hour show that delivers one after another. — The Detroit Free Press, April 5, 2009
