I get the feeling I would need to listen to this record multiple times to appreciate it. I have purposefully avoided Van Morrison in the past because of "Brown Eyed Girl," a song I don't really like much. Hearing this record might make me reevaluate looking into his work. The background behind the album and the "mystique" it has garnered are interesting. Seems the type of record where knowing the lyrics would enhance the overall impression. I enjoyed listening, but I did not hear anything that jumped out to me as a truly transcendent track.

Great riffage and poppier overall than I expected. Will revisit with more time.

More depth than I expected; will have to revisit.
