Wait­ing For The Sun

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

Set­ting a mel­lower mood, The Doors’ third al­bum got some stink­ing re­views but still made it to No.1 in the US.

In ret­ro­spect, the re­flec­tive tone, bal­anced by Not To Touch The Earth (‘Dead Pres­i­dent’s corpse in the driver’s car’) and the so­cial di­a­tribes The Un­known Sol­dier and Five To One, give Mor­ri­son a chance to per­fect both his croon and his rock-star howl. He was the Lizard King: he could do any­thing, etc. Mu­si­cally, The Doors are on top form, es­pe­cially on the fla­menco-driven Span­ish Car­a­van and the US chart-top­ping Hello, I Love You.

Busi­ness as (un)usual.
