Dear Heather is a fine effort which takes only part of an evening to acquire the comfortable familiarity of an old favourite. It's a logical progression from Ten New Songs and The Future but far less consistent in quality. When Cohen released Ten New Songs in 2001, he told critics one track had taken him thirteen years to write. Fans who criticised the musical ensemble on the last record for sounding like smooth jazz or muzak might actually prefer the rough edges here. The instrumental backdrop still saturates the atmosphere on some songs, but the band is deployed less uniformly in style and tone.
