Way ahead of its time. Seems to me you either get The Doors or you don't. And their debut just happens to be their best effort.

Suave and full of guts. The Doors' debut isn't the most emotional album ever, or the most innovative or even the most interesting. But as a 45-minute package of music, it's nigh-on perfect. It oozes 1967 from every angle, but its pop-rock structures still sound so damn good today. I could put this on repeat forever, no problem at all.

From the slick confidence of Break On Through, to the sutlry gentleness of The Crystal Ship, to the effortless class of the peak of the album Light My Fire, to the torrid raciness of Back Door Man, and finally to the billowing scale and darkness of The End, the record simply never lets up on quality, pacing and sheer musical enjoyment. Not one single second is wasted; it plays absolutely perfectly, everything is fully realised and boy does it have swagger.

On a side note, listen to how the entire mood of the album changes throughout; starting from punchy and energetic, before ending with the deepest reaches of darkness.

Álbum fundamental do psicodélico americano. Contêm toda a ansiedade, paranoia e tristeza de uma bela bad vibes.

if you like the Doors, the band Danzig sort of feels like a relatively modern day Doors
s for the album it represents the best and worst of the Doors for me. "The End" is probably the best thing they ever did. Not real fond of "Light My Fire" though

From Brad1770
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...
