Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

LEONARD COHEN

SELECTIONS FROM LIVE IN LONDON

2009-05-11

In 2008 Leonard Cohen returned to the stage for his first time in over 15 years. On July 17 2008 this show was recorded in London documenting a tour that has received over 80 5-star reviews from music critics from all over the world. Over his 40 year career Leonard’s voice has definitely taken on a deeper and in my opinion a more attention grabbing quality that makes his songs that cover sex, power and religion more interesting. The tower of songs found on this disc cover classics from his entire career and the sound quality is the best I have ever heard on a live release. At 74 years of age this mysterious man of music proves that he is still the man.
