"All is uncertain, this spiritual rebirth a question still, not a statement, and Van equates his move to a new world — both America and that of love— with a sense of being lost: "ain't nothing but a stranger in this world""
#4. A review, or summary, or description would be fairly useless here, when all you have to do is press play. What can you, or I, or anybody say about Astral Weeks that it doesn't already justify itself, a thousand times over? Simply put, the answer to any question you have about Astral Weeks can be found within Astral Weeks. It's such a powerful listen, that labels or dissections are instantly swept away on those first swaying notes of guitar and bass. So disregard your notions on Astral, on Van, on Music itself, and don't try to classify, generalize, categorize, pigeonhole, just listen. You're about to be born again.
