Performer Notes
  • Leonard Cohen's second album maintained the haunting strengths of its predecessor. His hypnotic, murmured voice retains its compelling power and the content on Songs From A Room proves equally resonant. Where another pensive singer-songwriter might warp his craft with bathos, Cohen injects his work with mature insight, using metaphor and poetic insight to enhance his craft. Superb acoustic guitarwork weaves a path throughout the bewitching melodies, enhancing the singer's spell, although Cohen's self-deprecating humour is equally prevalent, particularly on the singalong 'Tonight Will Be Fine'. Songs From A Room captures every facet of Cohen's inestimable talent.

Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (5/17/69, p.16) - "...a sound portrait of a man and of a mood. A picture of Leonard Cohen: a terribly poetic, sensitive person who is depressed and depressing and capable of a great deal of honesty..."

Q (p.132) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "1969's SONGS FROM A ROOM saw Cohen's scope widening and his voice hardening..."
