EDITORS’ NOTES

Back on Top, like most of Van’s post-1983 albums, is the sound of a first-rate vocal stylist. Except here, Morrison is fired up by several of the best songs of his long career. The punchy title track exemplifies his R&B mastery. “When the Leaves Come Falling Down” follows in the vein of a meditative masterpiece like “Hymns to the Silence.” “High Summer” rivals the midtempo genius of his best-known hits. Back on Top is classic Van—only fresh and new.

Back On Top for Van M!

This is a great late 90s album if you do not have it. Great songs, singing, and the band is great as usual in most Van albums. The two added cuts sound good also. I have the CD and I do not think this one is available on vinyl. Golden Autumn day and When The Leaves Come Fallling Down are great "Autumn themed songs from Van. The going singing with Brian Kennedy is very good also. I would recommend buying this download or the CD if you can find it.
