20 Best Albums of the Decade: #8

8. Leonard Cohen, Live in London (2009)

Driven by the depletion of his bank accounts by a scheming manager, Leonard Cohen— who had abandoned touring years earlier— embarked upon on a worldwide and critically acclaimed tour throughout 2008 and 2009. Live in London, captured over two nights at London’s O2 Arena, served not only as a snapshot of the tour itself, but as an indication of the enduring power of Cohen’s music. The songs on the album sound fresh and revitalized, as does Cohen's voice. Live in London could confidently be labeled not only as a great live album in general, but as one of the best live albums of all time.
