Diamonds In The Mine - Leonard Cohen Ranked

In many ways, Cohen was the antithesis of Dylan. He didn't hail from the Village Folk scene, but the outer vestiges of the literary world. Already well into his 30's by the time he recorded his first album, he was neither Folkie or Hippie but a published author and poet. He was erudite, esoteric and had an eye for the neurotically erotic. Nor was he afraid of the dark. He was less Dylan and more like Simon & Garfunkel's morbid Canadian cousin. Anyone who accused him of being pretentious didn't take into account his sly, bone dry sense of humor. I can't say he ever topped his first three albums but even when he took up with the Casio, he hit some sacred chords. Here are his studio albums ranked. Click an album below to read a review
