Astral Weeks sold poorly when it was first released in 1968. The album became a somewhat popular cult import in the United States, while in the United Kingdom it was largely overlooked by critics. Astral Weeks’ critical standing improved greatly over time. It became viewed as one of rock’s greatest records and a culturally significant work. A number of factors afforded the record its canonical reputation in rock criticism: its back story as a commercial underachiever and highly personal work for Van Morrison, its distinction from the rest of his discography, his artistic autonomy, the music’s song cycle composition, the enigmatic lyrics, and the quality of seriousness and originality as perceived by mature rock audiences and writers. - wikipedia

  4. Van’s new album isn’t as bad as the reviews say it is, but it isn’t very good, either. He has mined many of the same themes in the past, and done them much better. Listen to Van’s latest and then to Dylan’s, and you’ll hear which one has retained the greatness of his writing and singing.

  5. Van Morrison and Bob Dylan, both two old geezers who should have retired 30 years ago. I guess its hard to get off of the cash cow.

  6. You can add Paul McCartney. Elton John, Springsteen.The Rolling stones to the list. They all should have hung it up decades ago. The last great stones album was Goats head soup.That was in 1973 almost a half century ago.The last great Springsteen album was The River.That was 80 .41 years ago. Please retire,and preserve your dignity.

  9. I love Van Morrrison, but these recordings from various dates are irritating.Would much rather hear a show complete from a specific date than a hodgepodge of various time periods. He obviously sounded different in 2009 than in 1971

  10. Van Morrison has a Giant Coc . He was so short , that I was certain that when he showed it to me I would be disappointed. Boy was I wrong . He took down his pants , and it was a good 12 to 14 inches long and super thick. His coc seemed almost as big as his legs . He resembled a human tripod. He fucked me so hard that I literally could barely walk for a month . Van was definitely the man . This I believe was in 73 or 74 , backstage of course . He really worked me over good .

  12. Pat-have you listened to Rough and Rowdy Ways from start to finish? It’s outstanding.

    By Mark on May 21, 2021

  13. Bebe is right , Huge prick on Van the man . What a stud .

    By Groupie Chick Traci on May 21, 2021

  14. Van had such stamina also . It would take him 45 minutes to cum . Usually in my mouth first , then he would give me his hot load in my pussy .

    By Groupie Chick Traci on May 21, 2021

  15. It was very hard giving head to Van . His Coc was so fat I could barely get the head inside my mouth .

    By Groupie Chick Traci on May 21, 2021

  16. Skinny Dic ks are better for anal . Fat ones are better for the pussy.

    By Anne on May 21, 2021

  17. Average ones are better for giving head
