Title - 'Songs From A Room: Deluxe Limited Edition'
Artist - Leonard Cohen

Taking it from the top and there is quite easily a much louder audio signal than the earlier CD. Still a good amount of hiss, but that's actually a good sign, as it means they havn't sucked the life out of it with lame noise reduction technology. Besides the louder audio signal, the most obvious improvement upon one listen are the high string parts on bird on a wire. Even more beautiful than before.

Definately worth purchasing even if you own the previous release. Great packaging as well. CD case is shaped like a small book, with a spine and bound pages within. Neat. The booklet-style package features lyric sheets, a new appreciation by Anthony DeCurtis, and a sprinkling of pictures and interesting period memorabilia. Also new to this version are previously unreleased early versions of "Bird on a Wire" and "You Know Who I Am". I think they feel tacked on after the intensity of the original album, but they're interesting to hear on their own.

So, if you are a longtime Cohen fan, then buy this album for the updated sound. If you are a newcomer who is even slightly interested in Leonard Cohen, then buy this album. You will not be disappointed.
