1 stars A robin laying an egg in spring. The Doors laying an egg in New York. The U.S. bombing in Afganistan. The Doors bombing in the "Big Apple." A scientist is searching for a cure for Aids. I'm searching for a reason to like the Doors "Absolutely Live" album.

I bought this album because I was a devoted fan and the set included "Celebration of the Lizard." I do not remember listening to the whole thing more than three times, or even listening to the songs I liked on it more than ten to twelve times. It is the worst I ever heard by the Doors.The complete record has that garage band vibe. It sounds so amateurish and disjointed that it seems like an unknown band is trying to cover the Doors stuff and not doing very well.

After listening to "Celebration of the Lizard," I realized why the band never made a studio version of the song. They were fortunate to get "Not to Touch the Earth" out of it. It is sooooo bad!!!!!!!!!!! In fact, the set didn't even include "Light My Fire," which should be a real disappointment for any Doors fan. If I had to give this one a title, it would be, "Absolutely Live, Absolutely Crap!"

It gets one star from me, simply because I'm not allowed to give it zero stars.
