From Rivera
Some of Van Morrison's finest work - "And it Stoned Me" and "Into the Mystic" stand out particularly for me. The rest of the album is really great as well, with no filler. Can't recommend it enough.

It's great, it's jazzy and it's better than Astral Weeks. No filler.

My favourite Van album contains 10 great tracks standouts being Moondance, And It Stoned Me, Crazy Love, These Dreams Of You. Overall this is his most complete album more soulfull than anything else he has done.

Best first side ever and second best British album ever, only beaten (or almost equal to) by Ziggy by Bowie.

Everyone describes Astral weeks as a jazzy masterpiece, but I never understood the "Jazz" comparisons. I can hear the Jazz influence here, an I love it.
