To be fair, they pass every year. As to the subject, heard some stuff, didn't like the voice & too slow music.

Check out his last cd called "You want it darker." It's a really sad and beautiful cd... it's like he knew he was going to die,,,reminds me of "Hurt" by Johnny Cash, I have a feeling this cd will be a classic...

Man, I'm not even a fan but that's just a shitty thing to add.  Everyone dies - a given - doesn't make each one meaningless.  And for the sake of those who are saddened, just hold your tongue.

I didn't dispute what SCaroline Z said. Just saying facts, that every year they announce smb. died in music industry. It isn't just this year. People for some reason, going back to the start of this year, kept saying this year is doomed. But it's not so. Where you see me hinting about "meaningless" - no idea. & then I said I didn't like his music & voice - it's not insult.

It's sad, RRA1 that when I noticed that you had a post on this thread, I knew it would be negative.
His songs touched millions of people. Incredible lyrics. Have you heard his song Hallelujah?
Please let us have the opportunity to pay tribute to him.

P.S. Your comment that his music is "too slow" reminds me of a music class I took in High School. The teacher played a beautiful aria from Handel's Messiah. Brought tears to my eyes. But some of the students complained that it was too slow (I mean, how could anyone dance to it??!)
Oh well, different strokes for different folks

I'm really not that familiar with Mr. Cohen's music.   But when an artist passes away, if you're really not a fan of their work, its really best to not comment at all.

2NOLA BB Fan & KDS: I check this board by reading the "unread posts since last visit". I usually read every thread, except political/sport/alcohol. I viewed this thread post by post & see SCaroline Z said sth. that I observed from start of this year. It's sth. about the curse of this year. I replied to that bit to say that it's not true & every year we'd seen various artists die. Then, to make it relevant, I felt I should say sth. about Leonard Cohen, that I dislike his music (NOLA, like I said before, about Bob Dylan, lyrics to me matter zero in the song. I don't care for poetry) & voice. Nobody stops anyone to pay tributes. Lots of people write they don't like this musician, that singer regardless if they died. & it will continue to be as such. That's it.

Can you at least *try* to be respectful for those who may feel differently?!

If any of you cared to read my posts attentively before replying - without getting reactionary - you'd see I wasn't disrespectful. Ah well, carry on.

That's what the Moody Blues were told when they delivered Days of Future Passed to Decca. It later became a huge hit.

Very, very sad news.
Though I think that in a song music is usually more important then lyrics, I do care for poetry and consider Leonard, like Bob Dylan, a very good, sometimes great poet.  As a musician, I like Leonard better, and consider his voice, with that preposterous bass, one of the most distinctive in pop music.

Thank you, thorgil. Much appreciated, nice polite reply without getting judgmentary/preachy.
