N' y aurait-il que deux chansons remasterisées dans cet album ? ce serait dommage car un effet d' annonce comme ça mérite réflexion.
Sinon, à posséder absolument.
A quand Léonard COHEN en SAcd ? Le dernier concert de Londres nous offre un son parfait et en multi cannal (malheureusement sans DTS) .

Deuxième album de leonard COHEN ; il est a la hauteur du 1er et pour moi un peu supérieur . Je ne vois pas de faiblesse sur ce Cd . je ne sais même pas quoi dire tellement il n'y a rien a dire il y a juste a se laisser transporter par ce voyage .

HASH(0x903f412c) étoiles sur 5 His best, beautifully repackaged 13 mai 2007
Par David A. Bede - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
What a delightfully dark album! But if you know any Leonard Cohen songs, you already knew that, right? Wrong. This is dark even by his standards, a remarkable look at Vietnam and the 1960s generation gap from the enigmatic Canadian. Cohen being Cohen, of course, that can't be seen on the surface, which is what keeps the brilliant album brilliant instead of relentlessly depressing. The production style is extremely austere, apparently in reaction to what Cohen considered the excessive instrumental flourishes of his first album; whether intentional or not, this fits the lyrical atmosphere perfectly and adds to it.

While there is nothing overtly topical about the then-current issues at hand, youth alienation and war are addressed metaphorically throughout the set. "Story of Isaac," "A Bunch of Lonesome Heroes" and "The Old Revolution" are best seen through this lens. The album's token cover, "The Partisan," is a more transparent take on the horrors of war, and it fits well between the others. Perhaps most macabre is "Seems So Long Ago, Nancy," a chilling tale of a long-ago love affair that came to a tragic ending (and, characteristically, he remembers the year and what she was wearing!) This one hasn't turned up on any greatest-hits album that I know of, as good a reason as any to buy Songs From A Room. Amusingly, the album ends on an almost-cheerful note with "Tonight Will Be Fine" - perhaps even Leonard Cohen has his limits.

The booklet-style package features lyric sheets, a new appreciation by Anthony DeCurtis, and a sprinkling of pictures and interesting period memorabilia. Also new to this version are previously unreleased early versions of "Bird on a Wire" and "You Know Who I Am". I think they feel tacked on after the intensity of the original album, but they're interesting to hear on their own.

HASH(0x903f4dec) étoiles sur 5 Improved Sound 26 avril 2007
Par whatevas - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
A much louder audio signal than the earlier CD. Still a good amount of hiss, but that's actually a good sign, as it means they havn't sucked the life out of it with lame noise reduction technology. Besides the louder audio signal, the most obvious improvement upon one listen are the high string parts on bird on a wire. Even more beautiful than before.

Definately worth purchasing even if you own the previous release. Great packaging as well. CD case is shaped like a small book, with a spine and bound pages within. Neat.

HASH(0x8fc94a38) étoiles sur 5 A Classic Album with deserved Remastering 25 avril 2007
Par Zak - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
I was so excited to learn months ago that Leonard Cohen, the master of poetry in popular music, was having his first three albums rereleased and remastered. Songs from a Room is an acknowledged folk classic and the sound on this album is incredible.

If you are a longtime Cohen fan, then buy this album for the updated sound.

If you are a newcomer who is even slightly interested in Leonard Cohen, then buy this album. You will not be disappointed.

HASH(0x8fc94e04) étoiles sur 5 Masterpiece enhanced 6 juillet 2007
Par Peter Uys - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
Leonard Cohen followed up his debut album with another masterpiece, this collection of magnificent songs of solitude, despair and resignation. Besides The Partisan, a song about the French resistance with its beautiful French verses and female vocals, all compositions are by Cohen.

The most popular number here is Bird On A Wire that has been covered by artists as diverse as Johnny Cash, Joe Cocker, Judy Collins, Rita Coolidge, Tim Hardin, The Neville Brothers and Jennifer Warnes.

For some reason, the opening lines of Bunch Of Lonesome Heroes make me think of Frodo's journey to Mordor in Lord Of The Rings: "A bunch of lonesome and very quarrelsome heroes/Were smoking out upon the open road." Other highlights include The Story Of Isaac and The Old Revolution, in both of which Cohen's characteristic Biblical imagery surfaces, and the somber Lady Midnight with its many layers of meaning.

Seems So Long Ago is a wistful confessional dirge whilst You Know Who I Am is a delicate love poem with esoteric undertones: "I am the one who loves changing from nothing to one". The mood lightens up on the former closing track Tonight Will Be Fine with its catchy melody, driving rhythm and erotic lyric, although even here the sadness is just a sigh away.

This reissue booklet includes liner notes by Anthony DeCurtis, one full-color and four black & white photographs plus a full-color painting of a chair. Both extra tracks were originally produced by David Crosby and for reissue by Bruce Dickinson. The first, Like A Bird, is an earlier version of Bird On The Wire. This version is less flowing, more halting than the familiar one. Nothing To One is the earlier version of You Know Who I Am.

Cohen's sublime music has a transcendent, spiritual quality. These haunting songs "from a room" have lost none of their poetic impact after 4 decades; their grace, elegance and beauty shine on.

HASH(0x8fc94ee8) étoiles sur 5 great atmosphere, beautiful voice 26 mars 2011
Par Bryan - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
This is my first exposure to Leonard Cohen, and I'm pretty impressed. Songs from a Room can best be described like this- take a haunting, quiet atmosphere and combine it with a sad style of softly sung folk-rock including acoustic guitars and other pleasant arrangements. Maybe it's just me but Leonard's voice closely resembles Lou Reed. It's pretty good, though much like Nick Drake's first album, I have to be in a certain mood in order to really appreciate it.

"Story of Isaac" is really downbeat with the low-key vocals. The simple melody is elevated by the dark tone. Lyric about a father telling his son about a vision he has, so he heads up a mountain and the two of them go on an adventure. Lyrics take a turn for the creepy when they mention having to kill if he (Leonard I guess, or maybe the fictional father or son) must! "The Old Revolution" is a folky song with lyrics about breaking into a prison and fighting wars. Leonard sings it with such a carefree way that makes it seem very natural. For whatever reason this song doesn't feel very long at all because the vocal melody is so smooth and enjoyable, it all goes by quickly.

"You Know Who I Am" has an eerie and quiet vocal melody. "Sometimes I need you naked, sometimes I need you wild" is a personal admittance! But I guess Leonard isn't one to shy away from revealing exactly what's on his mind. I hate people who speak openly despite how silly or inappropriate their comments are! *looks around suspiciously* I'd rather not repeat the very next set of lyrics. They're too disturbing. "Lady Midnight" is a fantastic country song. "I asked her to hold me, I said "Lady unfold me", but she scorned me and she told me I was dead and could never return" is a great line. Quiet and slow-moving, and most notable perhaps for the chilling repeating of the "You've won me my lord" line at the end.

"The Partisan" contains Richie Havens-style guitar playing. Lyrics about running away in a war with memories on the mind for a soldier concerning everything he lost but despite that, he has to persevere. Really depressing song overall and the female vocals that come in just make it even *more* haunting. Like it needed to hit the emotional state even harder than it already does! Come on Leonard give a guy a break, haha. What the? Speaking of haunting, check out this next song I'm about to review. "Seems So Long Ago Nancy" has quiet vocals once again (I'm noticing a theme here!) and a REALLY strong haunting atmosphere. The song seems to emphasize loneliness and a woman who sleeps around but concludes with a fatal outcome (or a strange phone conversation). The vocals resemble that of Paul Simon and even contains Paul's level of soothing, highly affectionate emotions. Yes this house IS mysterious! *Extremely* haunting song overall.

"A Bunch of Lonesome Heroes" is more energetic than the rest of the album by far. Nice melody. I like the way Leonard sings "And for all who do not need me, I'd like to tell my story said one of them so bold" in a high and amazing register. "The Butcher" is influenced by drug lyrics. Yeah there's some butchering going on- butchering your own skin with drug needles! Not much in the way of interesting guitar playing but it's an okay song.

"Bird on the Wire" I used to think was a lousy forgettable song, but now I've changed my mind. It's a free country and I can change my mind however and whenever I want to darn it! *feels proud* There's a strong dreamy sailing vibe going on with its Irish-sounding nursery rhyme. It's sincere with the "If I've been unkind, I hope that you can just let it go by" line. The orchestration enhances the beauty in a major way. How could I not notice this songs awesomeness the first time around? "Tonight Will Be Fine" has frantic guitar work and enjoyable lyrics ("But I know from your eyes and I know from your smile that tonight will be fine for a while"). Leonard mentions naked lyrics a lot doesn't he! A fascination with those nude bods. Well it's not like he's the only one. Love the joyous atmosphere in this country song.

Overall, Songs from a Room is a really amazing album. 5 stars! Leonard Cohen's best work!
