Other Voices / Full Cir­cle

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

Th­ese post-Jim con­tract-fill­ing al­bums from 1971 and 1972 didn’t stink the place out but, de­spite the band’s prow­ess, lacked fo­cus. The in­stru­men­tal pas­sages al­most make you be­lieve noth­ing has changed, but the ele­phant in the room lets out a loud trum­pet as pass­able songs like Tightrope Rode and Hang On To Your Life drift past aim­lessly.

Krieger, Dens­more and Man­zarek were prickly when asked: why? But one senses their dilemma. Still, thanks but no thanks. And the cover for Full Cir­cle is un­for­giv­able. Sel­dom has the phrase ‘turn­ing in his grave’ seemed more ap­pli­ca­ble.

Move on, noth­ing to see here.
