He did a real David Bowie right before his death, releasing his best work in years - You Want It Darker.  Now he can't get that Nobel Prize. 

There is a very interesting Malcom Gladwell piece on his work and how he labored over it.  Give it a listen here:

Fresh Aire also just replayed a great interview of his.  I also recommend giving that a listen.

I mostly didn't like his voice (but on his last album for some reason that changed), but his songs were haunting.  Thanks for touching my (not quite) perfect body with your mind,  Mr. Cohen.
