A somewhat overlooked album by the Doors, this one still manages to bring a unique sound in their discography, with a amazing opener and some other tracks of pure Doors.

From Sandrof1969 02/13/2018 20:59
Un album assai variegato, che contiene alcuni bei pezzi pop, un discreto rock ( rubacchiato ) che è "Hello, i love you", un'interessante incursione nei ritmi spagnoleggianti ( "Spanish caravan" ) e quel pezzo che colpì molto la mia immaginazione adolescenziale affascinata ( per modo di dire, ovviamente ) da quanto era capitato in Vietnam che è "The unknown soldier".

Diverse and quite creative, but also simply boring.

It is still a good record but seems lacking when compared to the genius of the first two.

Hello I Love You is a classic. Not to Touch the Earth, The Unknown Solider, Spanish Caravan and The Unknown Solider are lesser classics. Love Street is the hidden gem. The rest is just okay but overall another solid outing.

Great album. Has a good autumn/summery vibe to it. My personal favorite songs are Not To Touch The Earth and Love Street

This album is like a really good pancake. Crispy on both ends, soggy and weak in the middle.

Unfortunately, pancake logic does not apply to music albums.
Still a super consistent and enjoyable record though. Super high highs. Really passionate.
Best song: Not To Touch The Earth.

From garycottier 05/20/2016 16:57
Waiting for the sun, is my least favourite Doors album. It lacks the focus and edge that their first two records had. Hello, I love you, is an okay song, but nothing special, although, love street, is nice. I've never been a fan of, the unknown solider, I think it's awful, one of the band's worst songs. Elsewhere, my wild love, is alright, as is, Spanish caravan, but almost everything here would have been nothing more than filler in their previous releases. Only, not to touch the earth, and, five to one, are the only tracks good enough for those earlier records. Disappointing.

Apart from "We Could Be So Good Together" and "Yes, The River Knows", the rest are really good. I don't understand why it's so overlooked.

A solid work, but I think the first two are better
