'Down The Road' by Van Morrison is one of the most beautiful albums he has ever created. I have been a fanatic fan since I first heard the single, ''Gloria'' in 1965. My favorite albums are his 'Them' works, Blowin' Your Mind', Moondance, Astral Weeks and St. Dominic's Preview. But I have been able to find gems in almost all of his albums. I like all the songs on this album but my favorites are, 'Down The Road', Meet Me In The Indian Summer', 'Steal My Heart Away,' 'What Makes The Irish Heart Beat,' 'The Beauty Of The Days Gone By,' 'Only A Dream,' 'Man Has To Struggle,' 'Evening Shadows,' and 'Fast Train.' Nine favorites out of 15 songs! 'Man Has To Struggle,' is Van's wonderfully mature and comprehensive philosophy of life. I agree with everything he postulates in the song and, as usual, his music goes with his words like water flowing down a mountain stream bed. All my other favorite songs have that soulful alchemy of melody and words that only Van can do. How does he do it? Van is back with a beautiful roar. Thank you, O Muse of poetry and music.

An absolute natural high for me. The same Van Morrison that I have been listening to for 30 years - never ceases to amaze me. His lyrics and choice of instruments combined are nothing less than brilliant. He continues to provide the listener with soulful insight.

I've loved Van for over 25 years, and this CD reinforces my feelings. I can always forgive his little quirks (like singing with his mouth closed) but there is nothing to forgive on this one. It is a mixture of styles, but it's full of soul. It's pure Van and pure joy. Made me cry.

All I have to say is WOW. Van Morrison once again has come out with an album full of success. From the first single, ''Hey Mr. DJ'', to his captivating version of ''Georgia on My Mind,'' each song brings you back to those warm summer days on the porch with a glass of lemonade in your hand. And with reviews from Rolling Stone like ¿¿ a man in the prime of life ¿ and voice¿ and the Washington Post saying ¿Morrison captures the American spirit of freedom and abandon like few others¿¿ ''Down the Road'' is definitely worth checking out!

I happen to really like Van Morrison, Days Like This is one of my all time favorite albums, and this new album fills the bill of more of the same great VM that I love....with a bit of a soulful touch that only adds to the pleasure

It seems people want some sort of nostalgic regurgitation of things Van created thirty years ago. While this is an impossibility it would also be a crime. The scenery along the byways of Vans artistic journey remains as vibrant as anything he has created to date. From the very first listen I knew I was going to wear this one out. Im not a critic or a sales person, just a fan happy to have shelled out thirteen bucks for some of the most enjoyable music Van has ever created.

Van has simply not been at his best since his string of 70's albums. I appreciate the maturation of the artist and actually enjoyed Saturday Night in SF, but he has lost the focus I loved from early albums like Astral Weeks and TB Sheets. Covers of Georgia on my mind my satisfy momentarily, but they can't touch the power of Madam George or He Ain't Give You None.
