CRITIC REVIEWS

100
AllMusic

Astral Weeks is a justified entry in pop music's pantheon. It is unlike any record before or since; it mixes together the very best of postwar popular music in an emotional outpouring cast in delicate, subtle musical structures.

Rolling Stone

Soft, reflective, hypnotic, haunted by the ghosts of old blues singers and ancient Celts and performed by a group of extraordinary jazz musicians, it sounds like the work of a singer and songwriter who is, as Morrison sings in the title track, "nothing but a stranger in this world."

My favorite artist of all time. One of his best albums. On your porch on a fall night with a drink and some smoke.... and drift.
