Man, does this album up over time. Recently I saw a documentary on the Doors and learned about their collaboration in creating their music, then I got the CD. Loved the music then, love it even more now.

This is a great album. Any greatest hits collection would pretty much have to include all of these tracks.

Nothing Like It

"One of a kind, totally inovative. Most rock bands have been somewhat successfully imitated at some time or another, but what rock band sounds like the doors? There aren't any. The same could be said for the sound of the Who but otherwise I can't even think of any other bands with a more unique sound than the doors. Yes, almost every lead singer since Morrison has tried to somehow capture the presence, magnetism, and captivating personna the guy had, but they always fall short. When this album came out, it was like no other. Kreiger, Densmore, and Manzarek seemed to be born to create the stage for Morrison's lyrical theatre. They were all they have been said to be and more. I saw them live at the height of their popularity during one of the rare periods when Morrison was at least somewhat together and they were devastating to watch, and the memory of that night is seered into my brain. I had the same reaction to Hendrix. You would go to see these people and you thought that there was no way they could do live what they had done recording. Wrong! Like Hendrix, the Who, and a handful of others, they were magic. This first album has no weak link, and like the follow-up Strange Days, it is a masterpiece, a point in time where everything was kicked up a to a higher level, and the sophistication, mood, and quality of art has really never been duplicated. Certainly one of the five best albums of the sixties and a classic representation of what that era was all about. Country Joe, The Doors, Hendrix, The Airplane, The Byrds...man we have slid a long way from the class these bands represented to reach today's "MTV" awards."
