Entertainment Reviews:

Rolling Stone - 5/17/69, p.16
"...a sound portrait of a man and of a mood. A picture of Leonard Cohen: a terribly poetic, sensitive person who is depressed and depressing and capable of a great deal of honesty..."
Q - p.132
3 stars out of 5 -- "1969's SONGS FROM A ROOM saw Cohen's scope widening and his voice hardening..."

Leonard Cohen's second album maintained the haunting strengths of its predecessor. His hypnotic, murmured voice retains its compelling power and the content on Songs From A Room proves equally resonant. Where another pensive singer-songwriter might warp his craft with bathos, Cohen injects his work with mature insight, using metaphor and poetic insight to enhance his craft. Superb acoustic guitarwork weaves a path throughout the bewitching melodies, enhancing the singer's spell, although Cohen's self-deprecating humour is equally prevalent, particularly on the singalong 'Tonight Will Be Fine'. Songs From A Room captures every facet of Cohen's inestimable talent.
