Van Morrison's status as an artist of integrity and distinction is self-evident: his reputation precedes him. For the release of his 42nd studio album, Latest Record Project Volume 1, there is a real ambition to make a difference by engaging new ears, eyes and minds to the project. A rapid evolution of the marketing mix provides us with energy for fresh perspective to illuminate the classic and timeless quality of the most important element throughout - the music itself: Thank God For The Blues.

I felt really sad after listening to this album by someone who has been a hero of mine since 1973 and who I have seen over 50 times live. I've put up with Van's tedious moans about the record business since St Dominic's Preview, knowing that I'd be rewarded with an Enlightenment, Linden Arden, Little Village, Behind The Ritual, or Dark Night of The Soul. But that open, hopeful, giving, yearning side of Van has now been smothered by his reactionary, misogynist, patriarchal sewage. Never thought my hero would turn out to be a Poundland Morrissey. And by the way Van, that Poundland had twenty shillings in it, not twelve.
And then..... you hear the voice. Most singer's voices have seriously deteriorated by the time they're in their seventies. Van's voice is actually getting better. It's as rich and strong as it was for Wavelength and Into The Music. Truly a thing of wonder....Pity about the lyrics though.
Some tunes are out-and-out catchy (Why Are You On Facebook, Love Should Come With A Warning, Western Man) and make a great first impression, whole others may take several listenings before making their mark. This is the sign of a great album.
Many have desperately tried to "interpret" this album as "mad ravings", "bigotry", or whatever. This is not the case, and simply reflects their psychology (see the track "Psychoanalyst's Ball"). He hits the lyrical mark with most of these tracks, and the hysterical reactions simply demonstrate this.
A highly enjoyable, and moreover a valuable record for times like ours.
Some other day maybe I'll pay some attention to lyrics and off-line opinions, but for now Van is back, he's been on repeat play here all day, and I am loving' it! The arrangements and musicianship strike me as (back) UP a few notches. His singing - always a little lugubrious in later years - is consistently on the money here. Way to go Van. Someone had to come through with the goods.
