Brilliant masterpiece from Van Morrison. Should be receiving the same attention as Astral Weeks on major Greatest Albums of All Times lists.

From caseygow
This album caps off a brilliant six year run for Van that started with Astral Weeks in 1968. In fact, this feels like Astral Weeks less heralded rural cousin and also a more personal affair as there were a lot of changes happening in Morrison's life at this time. A gorgeous record.

Another brilliant masterpiece from Van. "Bulbs" and "Cul de Sac" are tremendous songs, not to mention "Fair Play" or the meandering "You Don't Pull No Punches",,, The closest he ever came to duplicating Astral Weeks.

A great album, just brilliant as "Astral Weeks", or "Moondance", but still a real statement from Van. Probably, his most personal record.

THIS IS THE BEST ALBUM by Van Morrison in the 1970s that I've heard.

Coincidentally it's also the only album that fits those criteria.

Congratulations either way, good job

Id rank it the 4th best Van Morrison album. It seems like its not far from greatness but ultimately i dont regard it as a classic. Streets Of Arklow and Come Here My Love are the standouts for me.

I've considered myself a huge Van Morrison fan for years but this somehow always escaped my attention until I saw its rating on this site. Thanks again BEA! This is a beautiful album!!
