5 stars Despite not being a core progressive rock album it certainly exceeded its time with the epic "The End", legendarily featured in 'Apocalypse Now', which after hearing it on that film urged me to search further into their music.

The opening track 'Break on through' is an instantly noticeable classic. Jim's voice is on top form here, and this is genereally a consistently catchy and addictive song, to say the least. 'The Soul Kitchen', and 'Twentieth Century Fox', on a similar par both have great lyrics and a sort of folk-rock feel....not as folky as 'Alabama Song' though, which despite not sounding particularly devistating on first impact, the song has a very nice feel to it and won't be one that you skip in the future. 'Light My Fire' is a true classic in the realm of all things psychedelia, crusing into a lengthy jam of keyboard and guitar solo-age half way through, only to reprise the fantastically sung verse and chorus later on... 'Take it as it comes' is also a very strong number, often forgotten (maybe due to being towards the end of the record). Despite their being an absence of one bad song, 'The End', IMO, reigns above all.....11 minutes long, and disturbingly engrossing throughout. The guitarwork is atmospherically unbeatable, Morisson is of course on top form with a truly unforgettable vocal peformance and engaging lyrics. 'The End' is in some ways a masterpiece, and in many unexplainable aspects cannot be topped.
