Strange days!
Mikael Akerfeldt for fans of Opeth who don't like his growls (and generally the growls): If they don't like it then they are pussies.

Extreme prog metal rules!!!

As do I.  My vote for After Bathing at Baxter's is hardly a vote against Strange Days.

By the way, not to go off topic,  another great album from 1967 and also from the US is Fifty Foot Hose's Cauldron.

Strange Days! (because of all those darkly sweet pop melodies that JA never could've grasped). Hell, I'd take Surrealistic Pillow over After Bathing, and still take Strange Days over either. Simply put, Strange Days is my favorite doors album, and one of my favorite 1960's albums.

JA. I prefer Volunteers over Baxter's. Both superb albums. If it was Morrison Hotel I would of went for the Doors.

Has to be JA.  Baxters could well be in my top 5 albums of all time.  (I went for the Doors debut in the other poll though.)

I used to be very into both of these bands.  JA's musical peeks are better to me, but the Doors are SOO consistent.  This is an example of an average JA album and a good Doors album, I'll go with the Doors.
Which of you to gain me, tell, will risk uncertain pains of hell?
I will not forgive you if you will not take the chance.
