1969's Songs From a Room is similar to his debut: Just as Songs of Leonard Cohen replaced original producer John Hammond, who had signed Cohen to Columbia (as well as Billie Holiday and Bob Dylan) with John Simon (then just off the Band's Music From Big Pink and Simon and Garfunkel's Bookends), this album was started with th. It's also a more blatantly depressive album than the first two, lacking hopeful equanimity, and does indeed reflect a period of great depression and uncertainty in Cohen's life. But elsewhere on Love and Hate, he's in his finest, subtlest form- "Avalanche", "Last Year's Man", and "Famous Blue Raincoat" alone justify the album's classic status.

The result was a dark, longing, melancholic album called "Song Of Leonard Cohen". In 1969, he followed this album up with an even more melancholic offering called "Songs From A Room". The two albums are similar, there is no question about it. Yet, "Songs From A Room" seems to intensify almost every aspect of his first album - the songs here that are meant to be melancholic, claustrophobic, and longing, are much more so than same style of songs on the first album. Likewise, the more optimistic songs are more optimistic on this album than on his first.
Leonard Cohen's first album was an unqualified triumph which announced the arrival of a bold and singular talent, and many who heard it must have wondered what Cohen could do for an encore. By comparison, Cohen's second album, 1969's Songs from a Room, was something of a letdown. While it's a fine LP, it ultimately feels neither as striking nor as assured as Songs of Leonard Cohen
