Tower Of Song (The Songs Of Leonard Cohen) ‎(CD, Comp).

The compilation album Tower of Song was released in Canada with a cover that was taken from the back cover of Cohen’s album Songs of Leonard Cohen a version of the painting Anima Sola featuring a woman in chains engulfed in flames. The cover was changed for the international release, instead featuring a notebook cover with the title of the album on it, and a note with the artists listed. The inside liner notes features a picture of Bono leaning against a light covered with oriental characters, holding an umbrella, wearing his fly shades. Hallelujah: Written by Leonard Cohen.

To be blunt, this 13-strong "tribute" is best described as a total train wreck. Most of the renditions are notable only for their astounding lack of subtlety. Big-name engines barrel down the track, horns blaring, with no regard for such warning signals as color, shade, contrast, tone, definition. A complete derailment, because what they've all fatally missed is the poetry of Cohen's lyrics.

Songs of Leonard Cohen is the debut album by Canadian folk singer-songwriter Leonard Cohen, released on December 27, 1967 on Columbia Records. Less successful in the US than in Europe, Songs of Leonard Cohen foreshadowed the kind of chart success Cohen would go on to achieve. It reached number 83 on the Billboard 200 and achieving gold status in the US only in 1989, but peaked at number 13 on the UK Albums Chart, and spent nearly a year and a half on it.

Cohen’s voice is so brooding and atonal that it wouldn’t take great interpretive skill to make his melodies come alive. Yet it’s surprising how vital his spooky, peephole poetry can be in the hands of Don Henley, Bono, Tori Amos, and the 10 other performers on this tribute disc. The two bland-outs on Tower of Song: The Songs of Leonard Cohen come from Aaron Neville ( Ain’t No Cure for Love ) and Trisha Yearwood ( Coming Back to You ). B+. Tower of Song: the Songs of Leonard Cohen.

Cohen has never written a song which couldn't be improved by someone else singing it, and it's no coincidence that he's been the subject of three tribute albums. The results from this new project are mixed.
