Billboard (p.44) - "The sparse production recalls Cohen's 1988 release, I'M YOUR MAN, by throwing the Canadian balladeer's ever-deepening voice and his mix of poetic flair and pitch-black humor into satisfyingly stark relief."
Paste (magazine) - "[T]he Montreal singer's newest collection is -- hands down -- his best studio album since I'M YOUR MAN came out in 1988."
Pitchfork (Website) - "OLD IDEAS is a spare, low-key album rooted in blues and gospel -- maybe the closest thing he's made to 'folk' music since the early 1970s."
Uncut (magazine) (p.78) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[A]n album that pores over the passing and the past with such defiant, deadpan nobility."
