Astral Weeks

Astral Weeks

Quoted, recommended, and worshipped by the critics for decades, this underground masterpiece has now become part of the establishment. It cries to be listened to without interruption, which may explain why it failed to reach either the UK or US charts.

Artist: Van Morrison

Genre: 60s

Label: Warner Bros

Release date:

It wanders and weaves, repeating themes and lyrics as if one song, yet we never tire of "Gardens Wet With Rain", "Champagne Eyes", or the wonder of how Morrison can make a place like Ladbroke Grove seem so hauntingly evocative. This all-acoustic, but fully arranged, record is also a great educator in opening your eyes beyond pop, to folk, soul, and jazz, and although (or perhaps because) Morrison continues to return to its themes again and again... This is his core.
