      one of my favorite albums - a must for any Cohen fan!

      If you like Cohen you should own this already!

      If you're just coming to it, wondering if it's worth a punt: YES, it is definitely worth a punt - it's my favourite of all his albums, his writing has matured and the album pre-dates Cohen's 'synth' period which 'musically speaking' left me cold. A great album, with all the hallmark whistles and bells of lyricism, depth and character of voice, great vocal/musical backing - but this has edge, some of the danger and wit of later Cohen albums starts to blossom here. Thorns are noticeable among the rose bushes. There is a youthful abandon and raw energy on songs like 'Lover Lover Lover'; there's the great 'Chelsea Hotel'... indeed, there isn't a bad song on here.

      If you're looking to get into Cohen you could do no better than picking this gem up. If you're disappointed I'll eat my hat, hell! I'll eat yours - if you don't have a hat I'll buy you one and then eat it!
