4 stars Strange days are coming...

The Doors second album, often overlooked, is a great piece of work. It may not be the masterpiece that their first one was, but the album is definitely one of the most classic albums out there. There are many hits off this album, LOVE ME TWO TIMES and PEOPLE ARE STRANGE are likely the most obvious, but STRANGE DAYS and MOONLIGHT DRIVE also faired fairly well, and are a pair of great songs.

Of course, there are other songs, and they all have their moments. The most notable of the remaining songs being WHEN THE MUSIC'S OVER, which is a great proto-prog track, likely one of the best long songs The Doors ever made. HORSE LATITUDES is a bizarre song that features some haunting moments, including a good bit of screaming from Morrison, it's actually a really good track! The other short songs are not nearly as up to par as the singles and the coda track, but they all work together to form a nice album that fits well into any prog lover's collection.

4 stars, excellent addition for people who want to see the best of Proto-Prog...
