This is one of those albums that turns up on most veteran rock critics' all time lists. Does it deserve the hype? I'm not sure. It is original and very, very good, but I think there are better Van Morrison recordings. St. Dominic's Preview, Moondance, Veedon Fleece, and It's Too Late to Stop Now are better entry points for Morrison newcomers. I think Astral Weeks was more about mood than songs although The Way Young Lovers Do and Slim Slow Slider are standouts. The bonus tracks on the new edition give a glimpse into the improvisation that went on during the sessions. I think the long Slim Slow Slider is superior to the edited take on the original release.

Like all great works, Astral Weeks has a sound all its own, and a sound even distinct from other Van albums. It took me several times thru, but once I caught on I've been listening to it for years. The second half of the song 'Astral Weeks' captures the idea of Heaven better than any music I have ever heard, including the classics.

this album is a remarkably smooth effort by van. he is at his most poignant, and the remarkably well written ballads are a testament to this legendary singer. it is hard to believe that this piece of work was written in only 2 days. buy this album and there will be no regrets on your part.

Listening to this CD confirms what a brilliant musician this man really is. There is no other like him. The songs on this CD are deeply rooted in the soul. His lyrics are miraculous. He will always be my favourite singer of all times.

Seriously, words can't express how amazing this album is. Sweet thing is probably the ''stand out'' song on the album but the rest of the album makes that song so much better. The whole album has its flow but also also at the same time each cut is different. I'm telling pure musical bliss.

I first heard this CD some 15 years ago and it has been one of my favorites since that time. The musicians on the album are brilliant and the bass playing of Richard Davis gives me a natural high. Morrison has always had the knack of blending jazz and soul into a his own sound, and knowing what musicans will get the right sound he's searching for. This is a musical treasure. Bravo to the man from Belfast.
