Songs From A Room can best be described like this- take a haunting, quiet atmosphere and combine it with a sad style of softly sung folk-rock including acoustic guitars and other pleasant arrangements. The vocals are mostly quiet, low-key, and -- for Leonard -- more on key than not. The arrangements are equally simple. And the mood, despite five songs of revolution and other violence, is consistently introspective. He is a modern bard with lyrics that paint pictures of bittersweet experiences and keen observations of this world.
