I have to admit I am not a regular listener of Leonard, but a Phil Spector fan instead. I love this album! It is strange but beautiful. What a crazy, intense combo of music. May not be a Leonard Cohen fan’s cup of tea, but give it a try. Very enjoyable in a weird Wall of Sound way. And BTW, Spector did not do drugs. But he was a heavy drinker during this period of his life.
A forgotten Cohen gem

An excellent and highly overlooked album from Cohen in his middle years. Recently this forgotten album has become somewhat of a cult classic for younger alternative singer songwriters. If you are a Cohen fan this is highly recommended.
The product of inspiration and madness

This is one of the most difficult to love albums ever recorded. The gritty and concise Cohen is paired with the eccentric, purplish Spector and the result is simultaneously camp, weird, and unforgettable. Both parties make all the "wrong" choices making for a sort of punk take on sensitive songwriter attitudes. You can almost hear the drugs and insanity of Spector pushing Cohen’s work beyond what anyone ever imagined possible.
