3 stars After Jim's death in Paris, the remaining trio tried as bravely as they could to record further albums, and against all odds (set by bookies), this first album is a rather pleasant album, where the group holds his own and Manzarek fills the huge pap in the band's sound in the best manner he could've.

A lot of the songs on this album were already written by the time of Morrison's death, but I am unsure whether Jim had ever heard them. In either case, a few of them were worthy of their previous masterpiece LA Woman. Among the highlights are Ship With Sail and Wandering Musiucians.

But on the whole of the album, it is clear that the remaining trio will not manage to keep the group afloat without at least another full-time singer. And to find someone to fill Jim's shoes would've proved impossible or suicidal. So the group will record yet another record, the aptly titled Full Circle that will prove atrocious. At least, they remained brave and true to themselves. I'd say that this album Other Voices is for fans only, but really it is not any worse than WFTS, TSP and MH.
