Leonard Cohen: New Skin For The Old Ceremony (CBS)
Michael Watts, Melody Maker, 28 September 1974
LEONARD COHEN is an artist who worries a great many people. Dismissed on the one hand as pretentious, on the other as a plain old miserable son of a bitch, the sharpest criticism seems to be that he's self-consciously poetic, and that he's indivisibly moulded himself into his image as a romantic misanthrope.
