Basically this is John Coltrane talking to God. Every time I listen to A Love Supreme it takes me to new places.

Serene and mystical, this album unfolds like a long river, sometimes tumultuous, sometimes relaxing. A journey revealing planing images and a surprising variety. The best album of the 60s.

I remember hearing this as a beat for a Lupe Fiasco mixtape and thinking how amazing it was before ever even listening to Jazz. This album is so smooth and relaxing but at the same time grandiose. I look forward to listening to more Coltrane.

Either this or Giant Steps is my favourite. An incredibly creative, fresh and spiritual experience whilst still maintaining Coltrane's memorable and lyrical phrasing.

While certainty musically impressive, the grandiose nature of the latter half severs the connection to the "supreme love".

My word, what a place to start for someone who's never listened to John Coltrane. After just my first listen I know I'm going to want to keep coming back for more. Just stunning musicianship.

So glad to see that this album is not only now in BEA's top 100, but climbing. Should really be considered as essential as Kind of Blue.

This album has never yet hit me as a masterpiece all of a sudden, but it continues to get just a little bit better every time I listen to it. Maybe it is like that one user said below, where its one of the albums you can only really appreciate when you know every note by heart
