Digitally remastered pressing of The Doors fourth studio album from 1969, which saw them experimenting with brass and strings. The Doors' mixture of Rock, Blues and Jazz combined with vocalist Jim Morrison's poetic lyrics and powerful vocals created a musical Molotov cocktail that could make your senses explode...in a good way! Nine tracks including 'Wild Child', 'Shaman's Blues' and the huge hit 'Touch Me'. Warner.

"The Doors "Soft Parade" doesn't deserve the criticism it has received for being a jazzy album with brass sounds. The main focus is of course on the songwriting, which is really JUST as good as it has always been (since the debut).
Every song entertains me and I'm really glad I can listen to this album over and over and continue to get a huge amount of enjoyment out of it every time. That's the truth too. I love the jam on the title song, and "Tell all the People" has a brilliant vocal melody. It doesn't lose its momentum either, for the entire run, baby.
I can't believe people are still criticizing it. For what? It was a slight change in style, I admit. I mean, it doesn't have that mysterious spooky edge that made the first three albums so brilliant. But remember, songwriting is something NOT to be underrated. That's something you can never ignore. Quality is quality, and the Doors deserve to be remembered for having a very successful career with consistently enjoyable songwriting-dominated tracks. Great album."
