Leonard Cohen

Jim Sullivan, The Boston Globe, July 1993

LEONARD COHEN does not mind taking extreme positions in his songs. In 1966, he kissed off the memory of a tryst with Janis Joplin in 'Chelsea Hotel'. In 1993, he gives the politically correct brigade a jolt in 'The Future', the title song of his 11th and latest album.
