5 stars 4.5: the first album by the doors, released in 1967 was one of the first psychedelic album to appear in the scene and the most acclaimed. The lyrics talks mainly about the use of drugs, acid trips, girls and romantic situations. The name of Doors came from a suggestion of Morrison about a book called Doors of Perception . Lyrically, it is the incomparable way of composing music by Morrison using metaphors, but what i found is that in this one they don't have a deep meaning or something to learn, it is only about drugs and girls, however vocally he accompanied very well the music. Musically, is where the album really shine, mainly the keyboard riff are the dominant and show the psychedelic music of the band, most of the song are classics of rock and very good arranged, also the guitar make a very good job. An excellent addition for any prog collector, and although not all songs are equally as goods, the final product is in general excellent.
