Somehow even darker and more melancholy than Songs of Leonard Cohen, Songs From a Room is an emotionally claustrophobic set produced with austere beauty by Bob Johnston. The arrangements are eerily spare, heightening the impact of Cohen's weary vocals; the intermittent and idiosyncratic appearance of a Jew's harp only adds to the record's overwhelming sense of disorientation. While not as uniformly strong as its predecessor, Songs From a Room does contain a number of Cohen's finest compositions, including "Bird on the Wire," "Lady Midnight," and "Story of Isaac."


01 Bird on a Wire 3:26
02 The Story of Isaac 3:35
03 Bunch of Lonesome Heroes 3:12
04 Partisan 3:26
05 Seems So Long Ago, Nancy 3:39
06 The Old Revolution 4:46
07 The Butcher 3:17
08 You Know Who I Am 3:28
09 Lady Midnight 2:56
10 Tonight Will Be Fine 3:47


Not popular as Songs of Leonard Cohen but ideal for rainy winter nights.

Enjoy...
