The Doors kick off the 70s with a slight reinvention, promoting their blues forays, and rolling back the psychedelia, the poet Morrison takes a back seat to the rock Morrison, though he still shows up occasionally. Its not original or ground-breaking but its a nice change of pace after the disaster of their last album, and shows they still had something to say.

A comeback from Door after their terrible "Soft Parade", a return to the classic style. "Peace Frog" and "Waiting For The Sun" are underrated tracks in the Doors catalogue.

In "Morrison Hotel" non ci sono più le "The end" o le "Light my fire"; al loro posto grandi rock'n'roll o blues come "Peace frog", "You make me real" o, soprattutto, "Roadhouse blues". Purtroppo la frase "il futuro è incerto e la fine è sempre vicina" suonerà tristemente profetica...

What a great album! .

Have you ever listened to an album for the very first time & it’s as if you’ve heard it before but you haven’t ? This is how I felt with Morrison Hotel. I’ve always loved albums with great opening tracks & this album knocks it out of the park with the 1, 2,3,4 punch of ‘Roadhouse Blues ‘ , ‘ Waiting For the Sun ‘ , ‘ You Make Me Real’ and the albums tour de force ‘ Peace Frog’ .

After the disappointing Soft Parade The Doors are back with a vengeance on this album number 5 .

Another album I know too well to review objectively. Some of it borders on goofy, but it's still amazing.

Something of a return to form after the excursions of the previous two records. I love "Maggie M'Gill" and "The Spy."

When the Doors made the successful transition from psychedelia to blues. A wonderful album.

It's not a great album but it's pretty good. Roadhouse Blues, Waiting For the Sun and Peace Frog are classics. The rest of the album rocks along although I believe it starts to run out of steam by track 8.
