I just wish the instrumentation sounded better.

Leonard Cohen, has always possessed a droll, self-effacing sense of humor. It's just of the typical Cohen topical standards on offer here: spiritual yearning, struggle, love, loss, lust, and mortality are all in abundance, offered with the poet's insight. He is surrounded by friends on Old Ideas.

Released January 31, 2012. 1. Going Home Lyrics.

On Old Ideas, his 12th studio album, the iconic et continues his exploration of the spiritual, the sensual, and the cycle of life over the course of 10 songs. His unexcitable, half-spoken baritone is a calming, lyrical guide, with vocalists Dana Glover and The Webb Sisters and longtime collaborators Jennifer Warnes and Sharon Robinson providing tonal contrasts. With dual piano and organ accompaniment, Show Me the Place has the solemn levity of a modern hymn. The bluesy Darkness and the cabaret-friendly Different Sides showcase Cohen’s noirish and uptempo sides.

It's difficult, albeit a little ill-mannered, not to regard Old Ideas as possibly Leonard Cohen's final recorded testament. There's a distinct valedictory tone to his customary musings upon life, love and the spirit, with one track titled "Amen" and another "The Darkness". But if it is to be his last communiqué, at least the old smoothie's going down swinging. Tell me again when the victims are singing, and the laws of remorse are restored," groans Cohen, and it becomes clear that these are the Old Ideas to which he's referring: the forgotten verities of ethical certainty, love and human fellowship abandoned en route to our quick-fix, n future.

Old Ideas isn’t likely to win Leonard Cohen any new fans. It’s too intense, too raw-the skin has been flayed right off the bones of each of these songs-for it to attract the easy listening crowd and too musically subdued for the average rock fan. But for his old fans and those new listeners with a sympathetic turn of mind, Old Ideas builds on the promise of his recent world tours and return to the limelight with his strongest, most unified album in decades

C ^ The Essential Leonard Cohen initially peaked at number 70 in 2003. The album re-entered the charts in 2008 at number 57, before peaking at number 26 after Cohen's death in November 2016.
