Albums »New Skin For The Old Ceremony

Leonard Cohen - New Skin For the Old Ceremony As the coolest man alive, nearly any Leonard Cohen album could be recommended, but I have been listening to a lot of New Skin this week. The offbeat energy of “Is This What You Wanted“, the sparse simplicity of “I Tried to Leave You“, the childlike creepiness of “Who By Fire“, and possibly one of his best songs ever, “Chelsea Hotel #2” which showcases his amazing talent as a poet and writer and it may or may not be about Janis Joplin. Rolling Stone claimed this as “not one of his best” in their review in 1975.

I disagree, not the first or last time with the publication.
