      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Peerless.

      This gem was released in 2010 and collects performances from Cohen's memorable return to the stage in recent years. When I first heard about this I thought it would be a bit of a one play only type of album, but it actually betters the release of the complete Live in London show at Wembley Arena. Every one of these sublime performances is a stand out - and the selection also picks out several songs not featured on the Live in London release. We get many of Cohen's greatest songs her, all performed with his wonderful live band, and sung beautifully by Cohen. Just listen to Hallelujah, as ong most people have heard countless times, but this version sends shivers down the spine - performed at Cochella, the US festival, the song just takes off, Cohen giving a great performance of one of his finest songs. And the same came be said of the likes of Famous Blue Raincoat, Chelsea Hotel and Suzanne - there isn't a duff track here and each song has never sounded better. This album captures the magic of Cohen's return to the stage, and will be an album that will endure for generations. A master at work - buy it, you won't regret it.
