wonderful and spiritual,
This review is from: Inarticulate Speech Of The Heart (Audio CD)
The previous reviewer completely misses the wonder and beauty of this album. It was a very brave and experimental album for Van at the time, including a number of instrumental pieces, moving away from conventional song structures to a more meditative and ambient style. But it works sublimely - this is the Van Morrison album I have listened to most in my life. And the track Rave on John Donne is the piece I have listened to most. It's sublime - it touches you deep in your soul. This is music that comes from a higher state of consciousness and it takes the listener to a sacred place too. The tracks September Night and Inarticulate Speech Nos 1 and 2 are especially inspiring and sublime too. For me, this album was the highest peak of Van's spiritual and contemplative 80s phase, and contains a large portion of the greatest music he has produced.
