Entertainment Reviews:

Rolling Stone - 12/11/03, p.98
Ranked #19 in Rolling Stone's "500 Greatest Albums Of All Time" - "...ASTRAL WEEKS is Morrison going deep inside himself, to the far corners of his life and art, without a net or fear..."
Q - 6/00, p.89
Ranked #6 in Q's "100 Greatest British Albums" - "...Its musical daring, mantra-like incantations and kaleidoscopic use of language [is] still beyond cosy categorization....recalling his provincial, '50s Belfast youth with an almost feverish imigination and regret..."
Q (Magazine) - p.140
"[O]ne of rock's crowning glories and, with Morrison at times entering an almost trance-like state of rapture, the very apex of his art."
NME (Magazine) - 10/2/93, p.29
Ranked #15 in NME's list of the 'Greatest Albums Of All Time.'
Paste (magazine) - "It's a real hybrid; the bluesy twang of Morrison's voice, the folk and classical underpinnings of the musical arrangements, the jazz cadences."
Paste (magazine) - "ASTRAL WEEKS gets cited as a seminal album as often as rain falls. It's Van Morrison's masterpiece and an undisputed classic among music fans."
