The title track might be one of the best title tracks in history. So original, and I can never get sick of listening to it, I wish the title track was another hour long.

Otherwordly, mystical, magical. These words are rightfully used to describe this masterpiece. Van Morrison's had a solid career but he never came remotely close to this record. It flows beautifuly, with some amazing reflective stream of conciousness lyrics and wonderful passionate singing from Van. Really sounds liek it came from another place, in another time.

A beautifully inventive album. Astral weeks, is both cinematic and intimate, a combination incredibly difficult to pull off, but Van Morrison pulls it of superbly. Every track is a mini masterpiece, almost as if each song is an album in it's own right. It's such a good record that even Van knew he could not beat and never made an attempt to make another album like it. It truly is in a world and a class of it's own. Superb.

Song for song I don't think I rate any album higher. So many decades of absolutely delightful pleasure in this. Beautiful, beautiful music.

From Sapagrino 04/23/2016 04:39
This is my favorite (non-Beatles :) album of all time. Every listen reveals something new. It is calming and very exciting at the same time. The players are playful and jazzy behind Van. Richard Thompson on bass is a pleasure--his upright bass grounds the music, but also dances about with great abandon. I purchased Astral Weeks in Hi-Res (192/24) last year, and the improvement over my ripped CD was astounding (from my Pono). The Hi-res clarity and great DAC makes this classic sound even more fresh and new.
