For me, Seasons of the Heart forms the third part of a special 'quartet' of John Denver's albums which spanned 1980 (Autograph) to 1983 (It's About Time).
Chronologically, this followed Some Days are Diamonds, but musically it formed a serious growth in both John's work and singing. The title of the cd doesn't just refer to the song of the same title - a beautiful, but poignant, expression of a relationship growing in dichotomy. John then shifts to a more upbeat plea for the world at odds with itself and the inevitable consequences.
This whole cd moves from a painful awareness of disintegrating love, to the same possibility for the world, to whimsical dreams and an invitation to fun and rediscovered love, to a deeper understanding of what one person can be both to the world or to a lover, and the loneliness of, or connection with, existence. John is, at last, singing here with a beautifully melodic and full voice that had previously not been given so great an arena. Perhaps Love is a solo performance which, in contrast to the rich duet of the same song with Placido Domingo, delivers the tender soliloquy of one who is trying to come to terms with the pain of love and to understand what it is all about. Heart to Heart is as full-bloodied a cry of love to love as ever could be.
John's voice on this cd has a wonderful platform upon which he could truly begin to demonstrate his widest range of abilities as an outstanding singer and composer.
This cd is full of the question and the understanding of love. And the seasons of the heart come full circle with Children of the Universe - a song which brought John back to what was always there at the foundation of his beliefs and his loves.

A superb albumn showing John's range both vocally and in his writing ability.
Slight reservation in the production sound quality.
If you want to really hear John's vocals I recommend his Unplugged albumn.

Beautiful lyrics. Anyone in love should have this one as part of their collection. A very under rated artist. He sings straight from the heart.

"Seasons of the Heart" Soars! 21 May 2000
By Barron Laycock - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
For any serious fan of John Denver's voice and music, this CD is a special treasure. Here Denver takes his usual emotional tour of his state of mind, the state of his personal relationships, and the way he is looking at and experiencing the world over a period of time in which he tours the Orient. The beautiful result is this cycle of beautifully sung and arranged and well-integrated songs. From the opening moments of "Seasons of the Heart", through "Shanghai Breezes" to the end strains of "Without Love", this is a thoughtful, emotionally-expressive, and very intelligent oral symphony, and it is a tribute to John's mature talents that it is still "out there" and spinning on in so many places. He is still with us,and for some of us his loss will always be felt, but he is especially present with this wonderful CD. Far out!

This Album Is An Inside Look At A More Mature John Denver 28 Jun 2003
By Mat Clark - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I recently purchased this CD and have played it endlessly. I have been a John Denver fan since his career began. With the exception of It's About Time , I have always enjoyed John's music.
At one point, later in his life , John commented on how he was just learning how to sing . The songs about the mountains and the ocean have always been John's signature . Other than Annie's Song , little is said about John's songs about life and love .
This album is a complete expression of John's psyche . With John's marriage ending , the death of his father, and the decline of his ability to top the charts, he is definately reaching deep into his soul . Perhaps Love ( without Pavoratti ), Seasons of the Heart , and Relatively Speaking are three of my favorites . Opposite Tables is John experimenting with a new sound . I have not been too pleased with John's experiments with different sounds, but John hit the mark with this album .
Anybody who says that John Denver was just a fad , or that he was not a serious artist with real talent , should listen to this album with an open mind . Probably his best studio album ever .

Artists really do have to suffer, don't they? 28 Jun 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I believe this to be John Denver's best album since "Windsong", easily outclassing the other post-"Windsong" works (even "Spirit"). This is no surprise, since so much (good and bad) that the artist experienced at a turning point in his life is portrayed here. The same sort of profound personal experience stands behind his other great albums...which demonstrates the old point that artists (writers, musicians, composers) really do have to suffer greatly (or experience great joy) in order to produce great art.
Many of the tracks on this album deserved greater airplay than they got...but by then, the world was changing around John, becoming more cynical, sensual and hell-bent for leather. But here again, John managed to capture the spirit of the age around him without succumbing to its nastier tendencies. His shoes will be difficult to fill, if indeed the public would accept someone who could at this time in history.

A splendid return to greatness! 25 July 2005
By Bob Dunkin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
After wandering for five years in search of a new sound, JD goes back to writing and singing a nice collection of tunes. Some of this material reflects his recent travels to distant lands, especially the delightful Top 40 ballad "Shanghai Breezes." Other standout tracks include "Islands", with the fragrant tropical tradewinds blowing through my mind as I listen, and "Opposite Tables", a medium-speed soft rocker with some great backup vocals by Denver himself. That one is a political plea for an end to the cold war, which was still plaguing the world at that time. A couple of sunny, laid-back pop tunes with irresistable melodies and artistic production work also got my attention: "Dreams" and "Relatively Speaking."

The songs here are fresh and different from most of his previous albums, and John puts his unmistakeable stamp of quality on all of them. If pressed to find fault, I could only say that "Heart To Heart" goes on a little too long at the end, and I miss the kind of songs that JD does better than anybody, namely, nature songs. But how can I complain, when he explores new territory with the style and confidence of one who's been there before?

This is an indispensible addition to any collection of 80s pop music.
