wicked. I just blasted this on a bottle of wine tonight and it seemed more unapologetically evil than ever. "you men eat your dinner, eat your pork and beans, I eat more chicken than any man's ever seen, 'cause I'm a backdoor man!" he revels in this shit.

"father? 'yes son?'-I-want-to-kill-you... mother?... I want to.... [unintelligible raving]."

this record is the face of evil. in the most brilliant ways possible.

One of the best debuts ever. The first 7 tracks are at least very good. Break on Through and Light My Fire are arguably their best songs. Tracks 8-10 I would describe as filler. The End is amazing.

OK, this album turns 50 today and it's unbelieveable! The Doors' debut still sounds fresh now, more fresh than many albums released later.

From chivocosmico 11/29/2016 01:44
A drunk poet, a classically-trained pianist, a flamenco guitarist, a jazz drummer and no bassist at all: the Doors were just destined to be unique. All four members of the band took the different traditions of their diverse musical backgrounds and applied them within a rock context, making possible some absolutely brilliant moments such as the bossanova clave that drives most of 'Break On Through' and the Bach-inspired organ introduction to 'Light My Fire', one of Manzarek's finest achievements. The double acid attack of Krieger and Manzarek provided the perfect atmosphere for Morrison's esoteric prose and improvisational poetry passages, as spidery guitar licks and quirky organ riffs drunkenly dance their way into your skull, resulting in one of the most electrifying records of the psychedelic era.

The album is essentially a "greatest hits". Great album from start to finish. God Bless Jim Morrison

A bit hit and miss, but the hits are mind-blowing. The End in particular.

This is a great album by a great band, obviously.
The performance is unbeatable, even though this is their first album.
The Doors were (and probably still are) one of the most powerful band of all time.

From Strangel 07/18/2016 13:15
It was charismatic, catchy, dark, and extremely provocative for its time. This was a band conceived from psychedelic acid rain falling on the fertile soil of rock n roll and absorbed into the roots of the Blues. This album is the first debut on this list and the amazing thing is it came out just the year after Revolver. The Doors were alternative from the very beginning. The Beatles took a few albums to find the alternate route but The Doors were the epitome of an alternative band. Sure, they had the catchy immediacy of Light My Fire but they weren't going to follow any template for rock success. They were here to take us on a shamanic journey... if we were ready and willing to open ourselves to a deeper mystery within the lyrics and the hypnotic music. The End is quite possibly the greatest song ever written since the inception of rock music. It challenged the listener like no other music before it. How is it even possible for a young band to write such an epic closing track on their first album? I just wish I'd managed to see them live.
