Review about Jonathan Coulton songs
good cover | Reviewer: DAIrinchan
    ------ About the song Famous Blue Raincoat performed by Jonathan Coulton

I'm always harsh on covers of Leonard Cohen songs, because he is so very talented that other people's influence always seem to detract from the song for me, but this was far better than i was expecting. I really shouldn't have expected anything less from JoCo. He does this song so wonderfully. It's better than all the covers of "Hallelujah" combined, and i'm glad i took the time to listen to it. The banjo added an especially nice touch. I still like the original best, but this is an excellent song even with the comparisons.
