2 stars From the progressive rock point of view, the only songs worth mentioning are "Waiting For The Sun" and "Blue Sunday". Other notable tracks are "Peace Frog", "Ship Of Fools" and "Indian Summer". The rest of the tracks are just average rock songs, save for the excellent lyrics. "Roadhouse Blues" is overrated, over-played awful tune with mediocre lyrics too. ("You Make Me Real" is at least 100 times more energetic and sincere). If they decided to gave to the "Roadhouse Blues" a role of the album opener, than it's not difficult to conclude that this album is not among the best band's efforts.

However, it's homogeneous, mature and decent enough; actually it's not bad; it's just not following the standard of other Doors' album. There are more than a few good rock grooves scattered all over the record, but that is not enough to shine. Actually, the full name of this record is "Morrison Hotel/Hard Rock Cafe", where "Morrison Hotel" is representing A-side of the vinyl, but there are no traces of hard rock music on "Hard Rock Cafe" side. The rest of the tracks are not bad, but they sound a little bit derived from band's previously released songs. So, this not bad album, but it's not very demanding neither.
