  • The Mail (UK) - 5 Star review, “a paradoxical crowd pleaser”; “the subject matter is heavy but the tone, as usual, is capable of levity.”
  • The Telegraph (UK) - 5 Star review, “at the age of 80, Leonard Cohen has created a masterpiece.”
  • The Sun (Canada) - Album of the Week, “it’s another slate of smart, sublime and sometimes hilariously horny song-poems about sex and love, sin and salvation, death and loneliness, war and horror.”

Popular Problems, in collaboration with co-writer Patrick Leonard, is a masterpiece from the ever-fresh imagination of a musical legend whose songs continue to captivate new listeners and devoted fans.
