    The only thing that tops Cave here is Cohen himself at the end, singing "Tower of Song" with U2.

    The accolades are typically gushing - Bono likens Cohen to Byron and Shelley.

    If there's a calmer, more self-collected star out there, then he or she has hidden the fact pretty well.

    I'm Your Man movingly captures the artist's lifelong search for truth and beauty and his translation of it into song.
