When this album came out, it was rather lukewarmedly received -- as if there had already been enough VM in this vein after BEAUTIFUL VISION and INARTICULATE SPEECH (which could be viewed as Vision part 2). My wife found it too predictable, and I''ll admit that hearing these songs in concert sounded rather samey. And yet: samey wasn''t a bad thing. I''d felt the same way about the VISION/SPEECH tour, being reluctant to buy albums that were so similar-sounding. And yet ...

But here''s a breadth here that, while not quite as fresh as VISION, seems wider & deeper. The background vocals are stronger, and though there''s nothing quite so epic as "Rave On John Donne" or "Vanlose Stairway", "Let the Slave/The Price of Experience" has a strong sense of being so exactly perfect, I''m tempted to call it "epic" anyway.

The main flaw for most is the lack of uptempo numbers; once past the radio-friendly "Tore Down a la Rimbeaud", there''s little get the toe tapping besides the Mose Allison cover. But wait: "Boffyflow & Spike" is agreeably lively, and "Ancient of Days" isn''t exactly slumber material. And while much of it rests in mid-to-slower tempos, I find the predictability of songs like "The Master''s Eyes" has not kept me from enjoying them for [gasp!] three decades.

"A New Kind of Man" seems to summarize the album quite well (which it originally did, before the bonus tracks were added); at the time, there was still new music being made that promised a more positive future, part of the optimistic 80s without being just rootless pop music. Listening to this album again reminds me of how that felt.

Insert was clearly printed. CD in perfect shape. A great Van album that few know about. Listen to it, you will buy it.

Autmunal images (seared orange, pale yellow and green leaves), meditative paens to nature''s harmonious beauty and God''s love, musical notations on being a solitary human being in a large and sometimes difficult world, a rootsy and jaunty celtic instrumental. "Pastoral and low key" would be some of the surest adjectives to describe "A Sense of Wonder;" "soulfully soothing and occassionally enthralling" would be my humble critique. There is a wonderful and rare spiritual cohesiveness and harmony to this delightful, deceptively modest album that is rare to find or even stumble upon in any period. You can smell the leaves on the air.

A Sense of Wonder qualifies

First album I bought of Van the Man
Reviewed in the United States on January 7, 2014
This was the first Van the Man album I ever purchased. I still enjoy listening to it. I wore out the audio cassette I bought in 1985. Ivory Tower is a great song, and Evening Meditation.

Reviewed in the United States on October 24, 2015
It''s a favourite from Van''s roster of albums. Great heartfelt songs. Well written and executed. I''m not sure that it''s considered a classic but it is as far as I''m concerned.
