4 stars Break on through! This is where it all began for this legendary band. No other psychedelic blues band could boast a virtuoso organist, a simple yet wizard of a guitarist, a noticably jazzy drummer and an accomplished poet. All of that could only describe The Doors. I'd say that this album finds The Doors at the top of their form and it's one of the best early psychedelic classics too. Recorded in 1966, it was quite inventive stuff. It is still rather enjoyable now and very good to mellow out to in a trippy kind of way, it does has some peculiar, moody and strangely disturbing moments. Of the tracks, it's not easy to pick favourites, they are all classics: "Light My Fire", "Crystal Ship", "The End", "Back Door Man" and "Soul Kitchen" are among the best. My rating: Four and a half stars. Highly recommended!
