What’s with the low scores on this one! Even if it’s not a debut or a “Strange Days”, it’s still a pretty killer psychedelic rock album. Some essential Doors tracks on here as well (notably “Yes, the River Knows”).

FAV TRACKS: all except least fav!
LEAST FAV: The Unknown Soldier
I guess I'm a little disappointed? I mean, I loved their first two albums so much and was hoping that I'd love this one just as much, but I knew that this would end up being worse. But even saying that, I still like this album a lot, just nowhere near to the extent that I liked the previous couple of releases.

After releasing two phenomenal albums within ten months, the likelihood of The Doors releasing a third equally impressive album in only nine months after their second was extremely low. ... read more
This has some of The Doors essential tracks on it and even though i do slightly prefer Strange Days and their debut this is still up their as a fantastic 60's psychedelic rock so it being below 80 is actually weird.

Another great album but not as good as the last two. My favorites tracks are Love Street, Spanish Caravan, and Five to One. The rest are either good, decent, or ok. Not too much to say but Robby Krieger is amazing on Spanish Caravan, underrated as hell.
Spanish Caravan es un horror pero hay alguna joya, sobretodo cuando Jaimito se pone tierno.
