4 stars Definitely not a prog. album (like all of the Doors albums)

Wow, I can't believe how this album has gotten slammed on this site. This could be The Door's BEST ALBUM! Definitely more interesting and varied than most of the albums, with some strong Americana roots (i.e. blues) influence going on.

Here's a fair, unbiased, breakdown:

Roadhouse Blues - Bluesy American song, with visions of road trips, bars, and fun. Great groove to the song. Harmonica, piano, good stuff

Waiting For the Sun - Slightly psychedelic, with shimmering keyboards. Varies back and forth from quieter musical passages to heavier ones

You Make Me Real - More of a pleasant, poppy song, but still very Door-ish. Has some uptempo boogying in the middle of the song.

Peace Frog - A fun, groovy song that is very 60's-ish and cool.

Blue Sunday - Quieter, more reflective song

Ship of Fools - Weaker song (kind of dumb)

Land Ho! - Another fun song, with kind of a childish feel to it.

The Spy - Moody, slinky song for the naughty randy folks

Queen of the Highway - One of the more rockier songs, of classic Doors style

Maggie McGill - Return to the bluesy, cool rock roots. Very cool

If you can't get into this, you should bother with any of the Doors albums. A classic untainted version of the Doors (minus the sometimes aimless and repetitive tendendies the group indulged in).
