The best album ever.
(5 out of 5 stars)

"John Coltrane, one of the true masters of jazz, affected every corner of the jazz world when he released this album. The sheer power and beauty of the music breathed new life into jazz and streched the imaginations of many. To this day, A Love Supreme is an album that can be an inspiration to all people around the globe. His music is so extraordinarily powerful - it can make one laugh, cry, get angry, beam in utter rapture, and love and fear God.To me, on this album John Coltrane not only grabs at every human emotion, but manages to become that emotion. That's what the album really is - it is raw human emotion, pulsating out of every drum beat, every bass hit, every chord, and every saxophone note. When John Coltrane created this album with his quartet, it almost sounds as if he were possessed by God and became everything the human soul embodies.While some may claim that the album isn't good for relaxing after work or on a Sunday afternoon, I would say that exacly the opposite is true. Every time I listen to that album, I am put in a trance, a state so indescribably euphoric that I could exist like that forever. But alas, the album is only 45 minutes long..."

"I'm not exactly an expert with Jazz music. I mainly listen to alternative and classic rock but I'm always open to new types of music. So when a friend of mine said he was getting into John Coltrane, I had to find out what the greatness was all about. So I bought myself a copy of "Love Supreme". I was not dissappointed. I was not only impressed by the music itself, but the musical talents off all the players. This is not purely a John Coltrane record; McCoy Tyner makes a huge impact on this CD as well with his piano playing. I believe it's the second song where he performs an extended solo. Coltrane certainly let his musicians have their space. But Coltrane is certainly the star. His sax playing has as much personality as any vocalist could possibly have. It's almost hypnotizing. I love playing this while relaxing. I also own "My Favorite Things" but I like this one a little better. It's a certainly a must-have to anyones CD collection, no matter what music you normally listen to."

"I am a 16 year old musician who greatly appreciates the work John Coltrane. I just wanted to shine some light on the messages of "A Love Supreme". Coltrane is showing us everything he learned in his life in order throughout the recording. For example, his first three notes in the opening chord are II-V-I, the fist thing he learned. The bass line of "Love Supreme" is up a minor 3rd, and then up a fourth. This is the same pattern used in Giant Steps, which was shown to him by Miles Davis. The song is modal in Bb, and the piano uses the chords (which are all forths) to demonstrate how to voice the chords in modal jazz. Coltrane then "shows" us how he solos over these modal chords. Another interesting thing which most people don't realize is the significance of "Psalm". If you read the prayer given inside the booklet while listening to the song, you will realize that Coltrane is actually speaking the prayer through his horn, beginning at 10:47 in the song. This album is great to listen to, but it contains so much more. I encourage every lister to find these messages given to us by one of the greatest geniuses of our time."
