  1. Shit the links are broken for the mp3 downloads, I Want to get a hold of those songs, I bet they sound pretty awesome…

  2. Leonard Cohen’s latest release is the best yet.. “Dear Heather”
    I own everything he has ever done, he is my all time favorite.
    See, Gentiles have good taste too.

  3. Sad to say, Cohen’s record company got heavy handed and insisted that the links were taken off the site, even though Cohen himself said he liked the idea of his songs in Hebrew

  4. Leonard Cohen is without a doubt the greatest poet of 2 centuries. I do like his voice and the music, but the lyrics wooooow 🙂

  5. thank you very very much for that amazing AMAZING CD
    btw I dont think Leonard considers himself a “jew” per-sa today but it dont matter to me
    again thanks
