Leonard Cohen - Dear Heather album download

The tone of the album is mellow, hushed, nocturnal. Its instrumentation is drenched in the beat nightclub atmospherics of Ten New Songs: trippy, skeletal R&B and pop and Casio keyboard- and beatbox-propelled rhythm tracks are graced by brushed drums, spectral saxophones, and vibes, along with an all but imperceptible acoustic guitar lilting sleepily through it all. But this doesn't get it, because there's so much more than this, too. That said, Dear Heather is Cohen's most upbeat offering.

Leonard Cohen ‎– Dear Heather. Design: Michael Petit Drawings: Leonard Cohen (c) 2004 Photo's: . with coffee cup: Anjani Thomas (c) 2004 . under Father's portrait: Tina Tyrell (2) 2002. On CD and paperwork: ONLY FOR SALE IN CIS. Standard jewel case with clear tray & 2-page booklet.

Although this is Leonard Cohen's second album since a decade-long absence from recording that began after the release of 1992's The Future, the reality of his return is still difficult to get your brain around. When he emerged from years of monastic exile to issue 2001's Ten New Songs, it was like discovering a long-deceased relative sitting in the parlor and patting their lap for you to come sit as if they'd never left. Life after death suits Cohen. Dear Heather continues Cohen's longtime collaborations with Sharon Robinson and Anjani Thomas. Robinson- a talented singer, songwriter, and producer- has been working with Cohen since the late 1970s, and jazz singer Thomas has since 1984. Besides co-writing and arranging many songs on the album, both singers' angelic voices paint bright stripes across Cohen's broad swathes of gray and keep them from diffusing into aether.

While none of the songs are bad and the album sets a nice mood, it is ultimately a disappointment. Dear Heather sounds like what you would expect from Leonard Cohen at this age. The songs are delicate, focusing on Cohen’s aging, ragged, baritone, combined with a gospel choir, around which Cohen weaves his stories. Generally, the songs deal with love and death. Leonard Cohen sounds like a man who knows and accepts that he will soon be facing death. This all sounds well and good, but somewhere along the way something goes wrong. Lord Byron’s poem Go No More A-Roving is put to music on the albums first track. It’s is a calm, emotional song, and Cohen’s composition suits the poetry well
