3 stars This is a nice album of quirky, fun songs. The Doors generally went for a softer, earthier sound on many of the tracks. Jim Morrison also sounds a bit warmer and more down-to-earth, without the echoey effect on his vocals from the first two albums. Not that there's anything wrong with that! I love "The Doors" & "Strange Days".

"Waiting For The Sun" captures the band right smack in the middle of their lifespan and it has some very beautiful ballads, especially "Love Street" and "Yes, the River Knows". Mazarek's strokes on the keys are lovely here. Other highlights include "The Unknown Soldier" and "Spanish Caravan". Krieger's floating guitar work on "Summer's Almost Gone" works perfectly, reminding me of various tracks from the band's previous output.

I think this record contains Morrison's strangest lyrics and poetry. He definitely had a way with words. The bizarre "Not To Touch The Earth" is one example. In all, this is a very enjoyable work filled with variety and feeling. Three solid stars.
