4.0 out of 5 stars I wish I could give this 5 stars..., November 16, 2000
This review is from: Stoned Immaculate: Music of the Doors (Audio CD)
This is the Doors tribute album I have so eagerly awaited. I am a huge Doors fan and maybe I expected the second coming of the Doors to happen on this disc. Unfortunately that doesn't happen. Not to say that this isn't a good album, but I just couldn't bear to hear Train hack up "Light My Fire." First of all, whoever the lead singer of Train is needs to sit down and smoke a few cigarettes and indulge in some Wild Turkey to rough up his prissy voice a little before even attempting to cover a Morrison classic. Second, Ray Manzarek was nowhere to be found on this song, and it was a sheer disappointment to not hear a new fabulous organ solo. Ok, enough venting about that...
STP, Days of the New, and Creed all turn out fabulous renditions of the songs they cover, and Aerosmith hasn't sounded so raw since 1975! I expected more from Smash Mouth on "Peace Frog," and the pairing of John Lee Hooker's adlibs with Jim Morrison's pre-recorded vocals on "Roadhouse Blues" seem a little out of place. This disc really shines on the "new" Doors material. None of it is really new, though. The new material features new, haunting intrumentals of Doors classics not covered by other bands on the compilation played by the surviving members of the band. Jim himself, William Burroughs, and a few others recite miscellaneous lines of poetry over the familiar melodies that make you wonder where the Doors could be now had Jim not died.
Please don't expect a complete Doors revival from Stoned Immaculate:The Music of the Doors. Give it a few listens to let it all sink in, and enjoy...
