3 stars I like this album a lot as a whole. It is certainly grittier, fresher and bluesier than any other album by the Doors. "Changeling" is a very solid song and a ballsy way to start. This is followed by a really great song "Love Her Madly", which happens to be one of my all time favourites by the band. Other highlights are "LA Woman" and "Hyacinth House" another one of their most beautifully crafted pieces in my opinion. And the classic epic "Riders In The Storm" is really excellent. I love the stormy sound effects on that piece. Most of the tracks were recorded live, except for a few overdubbed keyboard parts by Ray Manzarek. I also heard Jim Morrison recorded his singing in the studios' bathroom to get a fuller sound. He sounds all the more edgy and manly for it. This is a very good album for your collection. Three solid stars.
