The Doors

Classic Rock - - The Hard Stuff Buyer's Guide -

This is where The Doors break on through (to the other side), de­liv­er­ing 11 match­less songs recorded in 1966 that are the an­tithe­sis of sun­shine pop. In­stead, the at­mos­phere is akin to a crys­tal meth state of height­ened per­cep­tion with side trips into the tur­bu­lent clam­our of Light My Fire and the night­mar­ish gothic rock noir of The End.

Fac­tor in the lurch­ing Weimar cabaret of Alabama Song (Whiskey Bar), the sen­sory moan of End Of The Night and the cool psych R&B Twen­ti­eth Cen­tury Fox and you have a de­but al­bum that can’t be beaten as a con­scious­nes­s­ex­pand­ing mas­ter­piece. Could they get any higher?
