Touch Me is a gem. The rest of this album is just OK.

Voluntas: The low creativeness from Jim wasn't actually from being drunk. At this point of his life, he was focusing on his poetry more than the music and let the band write the majority of the stuff. The stuff he does contribute to this album is amazing though. Wishful, Sinful is one of my favorites and he wrote it. He was more drunk on their next two albums, "Morrison Hotel," and "L.A. Woman."

An excellent example of Robby Krieger's hidden talents as a song writer, 'Tell All the People' and 'Touch Me' being the most popular examples. This period showed a lot more of the drunken Morrison, and Soft Parade exemplified his lowest creative spirit, sparing the title track which is likely one of his few greatest musical treasures.
