Daughter gets in the car all like, "Wanna hear a new Leonard Cohen song?" I honestly didn't know he had a new release. Seems he saved the best for last. I stopped counting how many times I said, "My God..." as we listened through all the tracks tonight.
With due respect to Mr. Bowie, my album of 2016 choice is this man's final offering.
Also from FB, in response to a friend's best music of 2016 solicitation:
Would have to say Leonard Cohen's "You Want It Darker." I don't believe I've heard anything quite as impeccable, from start to finish, in my entire life. I have always respected him but I'd never been a fan (until now). I guess he saved his best for last and he got it *exactly* right.
