Just when the Doors were about to come back, Jim “died”. The is an amazing album but I can’t stand “The Wasp”. My favorites are The Changeling, Hyacinth House, L.A. Woman, Love Her Madly, and Cars Hiss By My Window. The Doors are under rated

I have always loved the LA Woman song, plus Love Her Madly and Riders on the Storm are excellent. Even the lesser songs like The Changeling are great.

From the depressing tone in "Hyacinth House", to the desesperation of "Love Her Marly", this album is Jim Morrison's last goodbye. And what better song to end your story than "Riders on The Storm"?

Definitely their best album, challenged only by their first. Love Her Madly might be their best song, and every other song on the album kicks was too, namely Riders on the storm and the title track, but I also love all the rest as well. Definitely the masterwork of a 5 star band.

Their last album went out in style their best songs are L.A. Women and Riders on the Storm which are classics. The rest of the album is quirky and dark and all worth a listen. I especially like The Changeling, L'America, Hyacinth House and The Wasp. It may be their most cohesive effort.

Side one is great, Side two not so much (except for Riders on the storm of course, which is also excellent).
