Editorial Reviews

The evocative and eclectic instrumental score to the Ray Manzarek directed film, “Love Her Madly” features Ray with composer Bruce Hanifan, and includes an appearance from fellow Doors alumni Robby Krieger. As Ray himself said about the score, “have a glass of wine and put your ears on it.” – Ray Manzarek

I was kind of P.O.ed when I opened up this cd and found out there was a dvd available. I mean, why waste my money on sound only when I can have the visuals, too? Here's why: The dvd is of a 2002 murder mystery movie, "Love Her Madly," that Manzarek co-wrote, directed, scored and appeared in. It's not bad for a lower-to-mid-budget movie. I bought it and rather enjoyed it, especially the twist ending. But this cd is not a simple soundtrack album. It's better than the movie. It's three years newer than the movie. It's the Doors gone electronica. Robby Krieger plays some very tasteful jazz guitar on a few of the cuts. Some of the music in the movie is not on this cd, and that's good; it's not missed. Only the best stuff made it to the cd, and you hear the whole song rather than the choice excerpts made necessary by movie editing and budgetary concerns. If I had to choose between the dvd and the cd, I'd take the cd in a heartbeat, no thought required. It's excellent.

This album was released in 2006 and is an update of the soundtrack for his low budget movie of the same name. It is 54 minutes long and the sound quality is excellent.

This is simply a fantastic album (and I don't give out 5 stars easily). It is deep, rich, and sometimes spacy music. It is always very interesting and there is not a bad moment on it.

The music is like an evolution of the Doors sound. There are bits that will remind you of the Doors, especially The End.

This is mostly an instrumental CD, with some spacy talking on one track. As you would expect, it is keyboard driven but there are some interesting guitar parts (from Robby Kreiger) and some sax and some vocals (but no singing).

It is hard to explain, but think of taking the best parts of The End, expanding on that theme and updating it in today's electronica style. But, it isn't boring ambient. It is complex, layered, interesting and accesible all at the same time.

If you like this, you might want to check out Francis Monkman's Jam. it is similar, but more metallic.

I have always loved the music of the Doors and Jim Morrison's poetry and persona. However, throughout my youth and throuigh to middle age, I have always been highly aware that the MUSICAL VISION behind both the Doors and Morrison was Ray Manzarek. Once, when I attended a Doors concert, Morrison was too drunk or sick or stoned to perform. The other three Doors took the stage, and Manzarek did all the lead vocals and NAILED EACH AND EVERY ONE. Perhaps that is why I think OTHER VOICES is the best Doors album of all. Ray Manzarek was, is and always will be the genius behind what the world knows as The Doors.

LOVE HER MADLY is, I have been told, a B-grade film at best, but its soundtrack is sheer, pure, blissful artistry. Manzarek is not a man to rest on his laurels. The man has MOVED with the times and continued to hone his musical chops through the years. It all comes together so beautifully in LOVE HER MADLY.

The word "haunting" keeps coming to mind as the perfect descriptor for this soundtrack. I should underline that while this music was conceived as a "soundtrack" to a film of the same name, there is nothing "wallpaper" or "anonymous" about this movie score. The music is vintage Manzarek, albeit distilled in a millennial bath of 21st Century obsessions.

I'm getting too prosaic for thios board. Do yourself a favour. Do your ears a favour. Do your mind a favour. Buy LOVE HER MADLY and remember Ray Manzarek in your prayers. The man is a gift to us all. Enjoy him while he's still among us. LOVE HER MADLY will make you love HIM madly.

Ray Manzarek should be enrolled to play God in any and all films now that George Burns has passed away. It would be only fitting.......

If you were to know nothing of this music - cover art, composer, etc. The two things that hit the listener immediately from the first few notes are (1) It's unmistakably Ray Manzarek on the organ and (2) It's almost like if The End was performed as a continuous suite with electronic bursts from time to time with Rob Kreieger's drone like sitar lines fueling the tabla beats (Too Close To The Sun). As one progresses through this electronica rock-noir one can not only hear the fossils of various Doors classic, be it Riders On The Storm (check that vamp on Hadley's Cruise) or Widlchild, but more so the movie themes for which this was composed in the first place. (The Golden Bough, Obsession, Paper Kimono, Jai Va Tu).

At First Sight has some hypnotic muted trumpet lines slithering atop the equally noirish tenor sax melody with the latter returning on Expresso this time only to be augmented by Kreieger's bluesy guitar. With Manzarek on organ and piano, Robby on guitar and Bruce Hindman who's credited with production and programming, one wonders who the horn players are. On the whole, a brilliant, understated documentation from one of the geniuses of rock-n-roll who has updated his sound for the modern times without sounding diluted or trying to play catch up. It only helps that the production and mastering is top notch, tailor made for today's electro headz seeping the sounds via over the head phones.

This is what The Doors would sound like if the Lizard King was still around. Ethereal soundscapes and moody playing set to his mind altering poetry. Of course Manzarek was wise enough to realize that no one can really fill Jim's shoes and this is strictly an instrumental affair. Have a glass of wine and put the music around your ears (as Manzarek puts it).

Now if only Ray and Robbie take this on the road armed with samplers and such!!!
