Album Review

No big hit singles are here, or even familiar songs for that matter. Van Morrison compiled 1993's The Best of Van Morrison, Vol. 2 himself, leaning heavily toward his then-recent work. As an anthology, it doesn't completely work, since it's uneven and lacking a sense of scope; what makes the album fascinating is to see how Morrison views himself. Although there are many good (even great) songs here, Vol. 2 only works as an introduction to Morrison's idiosyncratic recent work instead of his entire career.
