I’m Not Your Man (yet)

“I’m not through with you yet”
– Sloan, I’m Not Through With You Yet
I had wonderful intentions of reviewing the 3 remaining Leonard Cohen albums this week…and I managed to complete 1.
If 2 outta 3 ain’t bad, how ’bout 1 outta 3?
Now excuses don’t explain (and explanations don’t excuse) but I think part of the reason is that I’m not ready to close the door on Leonard Cohen reviews just yet.
I recognize I’m not obliged to review albums from the 1001 list exclusively and I could listen recreationally whenever I feel so moved.
But with 469 albums to go, I want to save some albums that I’m looking forward to revisiting & reviewing, to help me with motivation when I inevitably hit the proverbial wall.
I have a feeling that when I’m dreading reviews at some point in the next few years, Leonard will be one of those artists that will help me get my groove back.
Which may be my way of saying that he’s a special artist.
By putting off reviews of Songs of Love and Hate & I’m Your Man, I think I’ll be able to do a better job at conveying that at a later date.
I know Mr. Cohen means a lot to a lot of you as well.
Feel free to share your thoughts on why he’s your man in the comments below!
Verbalize the Positive
Happy Easter to all!
