His last album, 2003’s What’s Wrong With This Picture?, harked back to the U.K. skiffle sound of his roots. But here on Magic Time, Van Morrison sticks to blues in all its incarnations — including the lightly shuffling (”Stranded”), the hard-driving (”Evening Train”), and the Irish-flavored (”Celtic New Year”). Van’s voice seems to grow suppler with age, his moods more finely calibrated. And though on ”Just Like Greta,” he sings, ”I want to be alone,” he has rarely sounded more engaging.
