    Dear Heather is Cohen's highest tide yet, his most exquisite marriage of song and poetry and ambiguous grace. [Nov 2004, p.114]

    Dear Heather, while slow and deep like all of Cohen's albums, carries its own rich surprises. [#13, p.95]
  3. 80
    Lyrically it's one of Cohen's least ambiguous albums... Musically it's melodic and memorable. [Nov 2004, p.96]
  4. At once new and old, familiar and fresh.
  5. His sleaziness is hilarious. [30 Oct 2004, p.65]
  6. A straightforward, warm-sounding album. [Dec 2004, p.138]
  7. Mostly, Dear Heather just coasts on poetic phrasing and inoffensive tunes.
