Fair play

Stereogum dives headfirst into the Van Morrison oeuvre and nearly drowns. After wringing out their hair and wrapping themselves in towels, the writers rank Morrison's 30-plus albums from worst to best. Not surprisingly, Astral Weeks failed to claim the top spot. You know why. These music-list exercises, so ubiquitous in today's world of dead-on-arrival music criticism, resonate with added irrelevance whenever the sorely obvious choice as No. 1 is crowned as such. See for yourself which album is considered the pinnacle of Morrison's career.
