5 stars The Doors' best album, and the last with Jim Morrison, who died in rue Beautreillis, Paris, France, a few weeks after the final mix of this release - Riders On The Storm was the last song recorded, and wasn't totally finished yet when Jim went to France in order to make an appointment with death.

No need to argue, this is a masterpiece, from the first to the last track. It seems like a testament, a last will. There are mellow moments (Love Her Madly, Hyacinth House), great epic tracks (Riders On The Storm, L.A. Woman), a great piece of beat poetry (The W.A.S.P.), some really rocking moments (Been Down So Long, The Changeling), some bluesy tunes (Cars Hiss By My Window, Crawling King Snake which seems to be a remake of Back Door Man), and a totally Doors-inspired song (L'America, initially for the Antonioni movie 'Zabriskie Point', but Antonioni refused to use this song). 10 marvellous tracks, 48 minutes (the longest Doors album) of pure beauty.

You got to have this album ! Must-have !
