The brooding singer of sad and lonely songs is back. Leonard Cohen has just released his first new studio recording in 9 years. This record finds him still thinking about relationships gone wrong and romance but with some thoughtful distance perhaps attained through his 5 recent years at a Zen retreat. Our critic Tom Moon reviews Ten New Songs by Leonard Cohen, with music by Sharon Robinson. The CD is on Columbia records.
