#25 – Leonard Cohen – Popular Problems – Feel Connected Top 50 Albums of 2014
At age 80, Leonard Cohen has created a masterpiece. It’s a smoldering, after-hours brew, which is delivered with a sneaky soft feel that veils deep earnestness. “Slow,” is a smokey opening track, allowing Cohen to seize the opportunity to dismiss notions that his age might be responsible for the sedate pace of the music: “It’s not because I’m old/ It’s not what dying does/ I always liked it slow/ Slow is in my blood.”
Cohen’s lyrics are enlightening, rarely including rhymes, often with a disturbing underlying message. Leaving the listener to contemplate the deeper meanings, and the imagery that continues to linger long after the band’s music fades. The album ends with the airy hymn “You Got Me Singing,” suggesting Cohen is in no hurry to retire: “You got me singing even though the world is gone/ You got me thinking that I’d like to carry on/ You got me singing even though it all looks grim/ You got me singing the Hallelujah hymn.”

“Strung Out” is a dope track from Albany, NY’s J-Nice; a rugged, raw, and gifted MC that has a knack for smooth word play. J-Nice and featured artist YZ use lyrics to tell a story and suggest methods for dealing with the pain of heartache and loss. RA-Blaze, a veteran producer out of Long Island, NY and member of Innovative Grind Music Group’s Team Innovation, produced this banger track reminiscent of Havoc, 9th Wonder, and old Kayne. Enjoy.
