Look up Classic Album in the dictionary and there is a picture of this album

Ticks all the boxes: stands the test of time , classic tracks , generation defining , X-Factor , sex , death , you name it this albums got it

And to have the courage to include an 11 minute dirge about death in 1967 and have it work is just mind blowing

Would be perfect barring the disappointing "I Looked At You"

May well be the BEST debut album in the history of rock

The first half of this album is truly fantastic and deserving of all the superlatives it gets, but the second half is a real drop-off. "I Looked at You" and "End of the Night" are complete filler tracks, and "Back Door Man" and "Take It As It Comes" are only marginally better. I enjoy this album, it's solid, and it has some of The Doors' best songs in "The Crystal Ship," "The End," and, of course, "Light My Fire." But this does not at all deserve to be 26th all-time...

Amazing album. Made me a lifelong fan of the Doors and Jim Morrison, even after nearly 50 years after his death. Top 20 albums easily. Really got me into psychedelic rock/acid rock

The Doors are a band like any other, fast driven, acid, rebellious sound and poetry. My two favorite tracks, for some reason, aren't ranked as high as I expected, "Let me sleep all night in your Soul Kitchen" is such a powerful line, singed with raw emotion, as well as "Before you slep into uncosiuesness, Let me have another Kiss" in "The Crystal Ship". Jim Morrison speaks to me as a poet, and as a figure in music in general, nobody was as rebel as Jim. Somehow the instrumentals make up to Jim Morrison genius, It combines so perfectly, It is easy to understand how nobody to this day could emulate a sound like this.

I don't think I have ever heard another band like The Doors and am trying to think what makes their sound different. The way the Vox Continental is played contributes to a lot of The Doors sound, it is generally a more staccato way of playing. I prefer tracks like 'The Crystal Ship'and 'Twentieth Century Fox' where Jim Morrison sounds less angry. The psychedelic guitar sound and style of guitar playing blends really well with the Vox Continental, the best example of this is on 'Light my Fire' where unusually the Vox takes the lead for the first part and the guitar for the second, it works!

Morrison's raw sexual energy, Manzarek's strange guitar playing, and Krieger putting the "electric" in electric keyboard makes this album very close to a perfect masterpiece.

The organ makes this band! (Not Jim’s). Every now and then a new band comes along with a very similar sound as one of the greats. Example Oasis-Beatles. Any band copied the doors? I’d love to hear about it.

Non è il mio disco preferito dei Doors ( che rimane "Morrison Hotel" ) ma è difficile sopravvalutarlo… ICONA.
