    I'm weary of posthumous albums in general.

    I am not a fan of soft rock and much as I have tried to find more in Cohen's music (and, as far as I can tell, words) I can't. I don't get where his serious reputation comes from.

    He's a good songwriter, I think.

    Leonard Cohen was a genius poet and a really good singer songwriter. I would have never considered him soft Rock. his first album Songs of and the follow up songs from a room are two of the great albums of the sixties. Like Art Rock I am not a fan of recently died albums but I will buy it anyway. Signed a hippie whisperer

    I am grateful for him but not in awe of him like I would be someone like Joni Mitchell, Gordon Lightfoot, Lennon/McCartney, or Simon/Garfunkel. That first album had some very unique moments but that was all that caught my ear as far as striking, except perhaps Hallelujah. I thought he had a good wit, and could put odd off thoughts into song, like First We Take Manhattan. Maybe one day I might explore his work further. I could see myself doing that if I have the time.
