Various Positions is the seventh studio album by Leonard Cohen, It was released in December 1984 (and February 1985). It marked not only his turn to the modern sound, but also, after the harmonies and backing vocals from Jennifer Warnes on the previous Recent Songs (1979). The album included Cohen's best known work "Hallelujah".
Various Positions made the top ten in Spain, Portugal, and Scandinavia, and fared modestly well in the United Kingdom. In the original 1985 Rolling Stone review, Don Shewey complimented Lissauer's "lucid and beautiful production".
