Damon Krukowski on Leonard Cohen

in categories:

Damon has written a piece on Leonard Cohen's Various Positions for the excellent Delusion of Adequacy's Artists-on-Albums series.

The production is hair-raisingly mid-‘80s, with live drums mic’d to sound like a drum machine, and synthesizer parts that sound like presets being put through their paces at a Guitar Center. The arrangements and mix only really sound good on my equally dated car stereo. And yet lately I can’t stop listening to this record.
