All That Matters Is My Relationship With You
Shell-Zee | Long Island, NY | 11/22/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Van surely felt the need to go back on this one. Not necessarily back to his early roots...You know those legendary American R&B stars like Ray Charles, Jackie Wilson and Bobby Blue Bland. No here Van explores the more spiritual side of the Belfast Cowboy. Songs like Oh The Warm Feeling, Foreign Window and In The Garden demonstrate Van's deep commitment to Christian devotion. But what really sets this album apart from Van's eighties output is his willingness to open his heart and expose his true humanity. Call it a kinder gentiler Van...not so much pride and bravado, but a more compassionate and vulnerable Van.

"No Guru, No Method, No Teacher"....Yea, Van needs none of that. He stands on his own solid foundation. "All that matters is my relationship with you". He may remain a constant seeker, but Van will always find a way to express his inner most feelings about God and love and truth. Listen and hear the voice of the master....."No Guru, no method, no teacher....Just you and me in the garden"."
A Great Escape Album

"As a long-time Van fan who pretty well owns his whole catalog, No Guru stands as my all-time favorite Morrison album, and is definitely deserving of 5 star status. Turn down the lights, sip some wine, and let the enchanting music of this masterpiece take you to some other place."
Brilliant and Majestic

"If Astral Weeks is Van's masterpiece, this is a close second. And I actually have difficulty calling this album "second" to anything, because it is in a league of its own. So it's best not to even try to make comparisons. It's not like Astral Weeks or Tupelo Honey or Moondance--or anything Van--or for that matter, anyone else--has ever done.

Listening to No Guru is a soul-stirring, transcendental experience. You cannot listen to "Tir Na Nog" or "Oh The Warm Feeling" or "Got To Go Back" and not be mesmerized and transformed. Forget about his voice; this is not about vocal ability or range or skill. It is not about catchy melodies or witty refrains. It is not about Van the Man. This is not personality-driven music. Once you listen to it, it becomes yours and no one else's. Truly timeless and majestic."
