This album is completely underrated in the VM canon and has some very poorly thought out out ratings here. Go back and listen again, people! Spanish Steps opens the album... leading into The Mystery which can be thought of as Van's mature revisitation of Into the Mystic. Queen of the Slipstream is an upbeat love song. Then comes a rolling bass line to open up a patented Van Morrison jazz meditation, I Forgot. If you don't love the way he breaks into the line "If my heart could do my thinking and my head begin to feel" ....well there's not much hope for you. The next two songs are just fine, leading into the three central tracks which are all very good late Van Morrison. Alan Watts Blues is as much fun as you will ever have listening to Van. As is Give my my Rapture. Did Ye Get Healed is merely a good song.

I had older siblings who listened to Van from the classic era. This was the first record of his that I bought (during university) and I loved it. It might be second level Van Morrison but that still makes it better than 98% of the crap anyone else has ever produced.
