 - Astral Weeks

  • Van Morrison

    Astral Weeks LP (1968)

    Warner Bros. Records

Ranked #128 in the Soul Strut 200

This record just has that sound. Really minimal arrangements and amazing production. Van is just killin it with this shit. It's got an almost traditional Irish folksy feel, but the loose freedom of the song structure just lets van do his thug thizzle on the vocal tip. When he hits, it's just straight up chills down the spine status. So many amazing lyrics too. When he talks about his girl "standing with a look af avarice", that shit is just too real for words.
