Van Morrion has such a smooth style that makes him a famous, mellow, Irish folk with pop & jazz.
On this album, he is so gentle--- "and it stoned me" & "caravan".
Amazing piano ballad, "crazy love".
For me, his voice his initimate, warm, making Moondance one of the most important sexy rock classics.

Also, its one of the most front loaded albums-the first 5 songs are perfect.
Honestly, when I had this on album, I never listened to side 2.
Having a CD copy, I have to admit "brand new day" is really good.

There are very few songs better than Into The Mystic.
Oh and it's a solid record too.
