The Truth
4 stars When talking about The Doors, it's hard to deny their ability as a live band. Jim Morrison's stage presence as well as the other band members' great instrumental contributions are incredible and the overall concert experience is very real, the performances of every song top notch.

That experience is just intensified during moments such as the one in "When the Music's Over" when Morrison tries to settle down some fans so they can continue the song. The interlude is very funny and practically seems intentional.

But yeah, how can one go wrong with this record? Not much to say about it other than there are some great performances of well known songs and some very interesting new pieces or pieces that are only played live such as "Build Me a Woman" and the absolutely (live?) epic "Celebration of the Lizard" piece.

Highly recommended to newcomers and fans of the band.

The Truth | 4/5 |
