What surprised me the most when I listened through the album was that I thought it sounded different. Was it really that long since I last heard it? I did not realize that the album had been both remastered and remixed. I guess it will take some time to get used to these new "versions" - but the sound is really crisp and clear, and if I want to hear the old mixes I can always return to the originals.
The original album contains some the Doors' most poetic and melodic moments like "Yes, The River Knows", the exquisite "Love Street" , which is one of the highlights of the album. The moving "Summer`s Almost Gone". "Wintertime Love" and "Spanish Caravan" are other highlights.
"Not to Touch the Earth" and "Five to One" : Classic Doors !!!
The hit singles "Hello I Love You" and "The Unknown Soldier" may not have aged as well as the rest of the album`s songs. Except of course the weak "My Wild Love" which probably always will annoy me.
His phrasing and finesse'that he releases here is from the soul and heart. For him to continually come up with something new and fresh is nothing short of genius! And for the band as a whole to create this masterpiece that is still flying off the shelves at your local record stores after more than 30 years speaks loud and clear to the critics of the past and present.
Other songs are less impressive, giving the sense of a band struggling to keep up with the market’s demands, trying to broaden and experiment but not always hitting the mark. The problem is that the band’s first two albums, and their last two albums, are so majestic that this one suffers in comparison. Nevertheless, The Doors are so good that even when they are below their peak they are miles above pretty much any other band on the planet at that time. Just one example, Hello I Love You. For some people this was too commercial, a pop song. But if you listen carefully you’ll see that it has a good deal of whimsy and humour, an often overlooked feature of The Doors. It cleverly subverts the strutting male attitude towards a ‘chick’, foreshadowing Morrison’s own rejection of the pop star stereotype. A clever, wise song. Don’t you love them madly?
