Leonard Cohen - "New Skin for the Old Ceremony"

Cohen could not be omitted on my list. As I like poetry so much and he is the poet singer by excellence. But again it's damn tough to find the record that is outstanding. He has quite a few. It is sometimes argued the first listener should try another album instead of "New Skin", but I think the contrary is quite true. As Cohen is mostly disliked for his monotone parlando-lyrical style that lacks sufficient instrumental support, "New Skin" could just charm you as it contains more instruments than is usual for Cohen, and vocal assistance from two famous Janises, Ian and Joplin, on top of that.
