AllMusic/ Mark Deming: “Songs of Love and Hate is one of Leonard Cohen’s most emotionally intense albums — which, given the nature of Cohen’s body of work, is no small statement. While the title Songs of Love and Hate sums up the album’s themes accurately enough, it’s hardly as simple as that description might lead you to expect, in these eight songs… If Songs of Love and Hate isn’t Cohen’s best album, it comes close enough to be essential to anyone interested in his work.” Score: 9/10.
TUTV: Without a shadow of a doubt one of the
best singer/songwriters and crooners of all time.
