The Weekly Hit List: October 26, 2012

An article by Christian Scharen, author of Broken Hallelujahs, was featured in the latest issue of Immerse Journal.

“The Wisdom of Elders: Listening to Leonard Cohen’s Old Ideas

“In just over a year, after playing his final show in December 2010, Cohen recorded and released one of the best albums of his career.

“Playfully called Old Ideas, the album represents both the ideas of an old man and at the same time a set of songs engaging old ideas, those deep and enduring concerns that remain after the fluff of life blows away in the wind.”
