简介:The Future is the ninth studio album by Canadian singer-songwriter Leonard Cohen, released in 1992.   The album charted as high as #36 in the U.K. and was phenomenally successful in Canada, going gold, platinum, and double-platinum. Cohen also won the Canadian Juno Award for Best Male Vocalist in 1993 for The Future. In his acceptance speech, he quipped, "Only in Canada could somebody with a voice like mine win Vocalist of the Year." The music video for Cohen's song "Closing Time" also won the Juno Award for Best Music Video in 1993.   The actress Rebecca De Mornay, who dated Cohen in the early 1990s, was credited as a co-producer of the album along with Cohen himself. The album includes Cohen's covers of the Irving Berlin song "Always" and the Frederick Knight song "Be For Real." The Future is also the only Leonard Cohen studio album to include an instrumental Cohen composition ("Tacoma Trailer").   Three songs from this album ("Waiting for the Miracle", "Anthem", and the title track) were prominently used on the soundtrack for Oliver Stone's 1994 film Natural Born Killers. Songs from the album have also appeared in the films Wonder Boys starring Michael Douglas and The Life of David Gale starring Kevin Spacey. (wiki)   ------------------------------------------------------------------------------   by Christopher Fielder   As with most every Leonard Cohen album, a new record means a new means of musical exploration. With The Future, Cohen adds chiming synthesizers and eerie orchestrations to his brooding anthems about life's darker half. One of the last of Cohen's full-length albums, The Future is definitely one of the most direct. More notable tracks include "The Future" and "Waiting for the Miracle," both of which were featured on the Natural Born Killers soundtrack. Closer to spoken word poetry set to music than simply songs, the entire album is one long manifesto calling all to challenge the concepts of righteousness and despair in our modern world. Regardless of the music behind the man, Cohen still manages to bring to The Future what he brought to his earlier recordings: one man against the world with nothing but a gruff voice and a cause.
