Ben Stiller reprises his role as a former model in a throwaway but amusing sequel
Leonard Cohen - 'Old Ideas'
Cohen has lost none of his passion
Histrionics are passed over in favour of a compelling slow burn, hitting hard with a near-whispered “I’m naked and I’m filthy” on ‘Anyhow’ and the mournfully mused suggestion that he’s a “lazy bastard living in a suit” on the unassuming but deftly melodic ‘Going Home’. Cohen might sound gruffer than ever on the plaintive, profound ‘Show Me The Place’, a venture deep into Tom Waits piano ballad territory, but his 12th album’s masterpiece hangs in the artful groove and brazen jazz swish of ‘The Darkness’.
