    The warmth of the album comes through in the songwriting, its lyrical content, and the soft-edged production, capturing an insular sense of self-exploration as well as something more universally reaching.

    It’s the sort of album that might not work all the time, but fits excellently to certain moments.

    Songs From The Vanished Frontier has enough fuzz on the fringes to keep its bubbly, mellow vibe from going flat. [Jun-Jul 2013, p.97]

    Though they don’t jar in any way, it’s easy to get the sense that lyrics aren’t the first thing that Cohen considers when constructing a song. It’s more that they glide over and drift in and out of the music without forcing you to stop to examine them.
