This a group for anyone who likes/loves Van Morrison's Astral Weeks.

Do you listen to and/or scrobble Astral Weeks? Well join this group and let visitors to your profile know you listen to one of the greatest 'rock' albums ever. If you want to talk about the album and Van Morrison too that's even better.

"Van Morrison was twenty-two or twenty-three—years old when he made this record; there are lifetimes behind it. What Astral Weeks deals in are not facts but truths. Astral Weeks, insofar as it can be pinned down, is a record about people stunned by life, completely overwhelmed, stalled in their skins, their ages and selves, paralyzed by the enormity of what in one moment of vision they can comprehend."
Lester Bangs

"Astral Weeks songs...were from another sort of place—not what is at all obvious. They are poetry and mythical musings channeled from my imagination...[They] are little poetic stories I made up and set to music. The album is about song craft for me—making things up and making them fit to a tune I have arranged. The songs were somewhat channeled works—that is why I called it 'Astral Weeks'. As my songwriting has gone on I tend to do the same channeling, so it’s sort of like 'Astral Decades', I guess."
