12 Songs, 1 Hour 7 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

This collection from his 2008-2009 world tour features an interesting mix of songs from Cohen’s career. The obscure “That Don’t Make It Junk” sits well right alongside “Suzanne,”  “Bird On the Wire,” “Famous Blue Raincoat” and the now ever-popular “Hallelujah.” The real excitement for Cohen fans is hearing songs such as “Lover, Lover, Lover,” “Chelsea Hotel,” and “The Partisan” exhumed with a crack band that help Cohen transform from a bookish icon into the great chansonnier and bandleader he really is. Plus, he’s solid with each era, twisting up “Waiting for the Miracle” with the same authority as “Avalanche.”
