Inarticulate Speech Of The Heart
by Van Morrison
Released: Mar 1983
Label: Warner Bros.
Morrison goes a-searching on an album that sounds better with each passing year. The opener, "Higher Than the World," is a flat-out beauty, and the instrumental "Celtic Swing" glows with the mix of jazz, soul and Irish folk that's at the heart of Morrison's musical world. The disc proves that synths and live instruments can blend into a warm, organic whole.
