Reissue of Leonard Cohen’s 1977 fifth studio album Death Of A Ladies’ Man. Phil Spector’s orchestral ‘Wall of Sound’ was imposed upon his usually-sparse vocals, making for mixed reviews and debate around the 8-song release. An interesting piece in the Cohen canon. LP reissued on Columbia.

7/10 Jack Customer review, 28th November 2017

In my mind, this album presents the perfect marriage of Cohen and Spector: Cohen's reedy, nasally "early" voice is used as just another instrument in building up Spector's abstract Wall of Sound. And the 50's doo-wop songs also seem a good fit for Cohen, who's shown a penchant for catchy pop songs and hooks, as well as using them as frames upon which to drape his poetry. No, there's no "Suzanne" on the album, but Cohen's lyrical ability is on full display (albeit one has to read along with the lyric sheet to decipher them).
