They have some amazing songs, but most of their stuff blows.

I like all six of the albums........I could've sworn we had another thread about this earlier as I remember typing something about 'The Soft Parade'.........but yeah, one of the best catalogs of all time.

I really like them, except for the really bluesy songs. I don't like blues.

"Waiting for the Sun" wasn't a great album, but it wasn't "sh*tty" imo......and the other five are holy classics of awesomeness.

The first album is great.  Then my favorite songs on the other albums include "LA Woman," "Roadhouse Blues," and "Peace Frog."  

You have to admire Ray M. for playing those bass lines on his organ on some of their stuff, but I think they were a better band when they used real bass.

What do you all think of the Soft Parade album? I read a lot of bad reviews for it, but I think it's a pretty good album.

Here's a rundown of the "Door's Career" short form! Ray meets Jimmy on a beach in Sothern Calif they talk and form the Doors! First Lp stunning "Light My Fire" all time classic song. The rest of the LP great also! "People Are Strange" LP a liitle more out there lyrically and musically! Outstanding songs People Are Strange, Moonlight Mile. Next up "Waiting For The Sun" another stunning song which gets little recognition "Unknown Soldier" (Government didn't like it) War protest song! Morrison's Hotel incredible song called "Roadhouse Blues" great rock/blusey song! Suddenly the establishment has a "H-ON" for Jim and the Doors can't get gigs anywhere? LA Woman LP gives us "Riders On The Storm!!!" another awesome song!!! Live LP in there also double captures Doors sound and is good! AS a band they allways had that 1 hit off each LP which kept their name going!! Big AM hits  Light MY Fire, Hello I Love You, Tell All The People, and Riders On The Storm! They leave their mark on the music scene with a style never duplicated! Didn't hurt that their singer had the most carismatic stage presence of any guy just short of "Elvis!"

Same here, great album. I like it more than "Waiting For The Sun" and "Morrison Hotel"...

I used to like "Riders on the Storm" but one time in college I caught a ride from Chapel Hill to Nashville with this guy--they're were six of us in the car--and he insisted on listening to the "LA Woman" album over and over again.  It was his car.  

Somehow hearing "Riders" about fifty times over the course of 10 hours was just too much for me.  It's a great song, but I have to change the radio channels when I hear that thunder clap at the beginning.

Luckily I never got tired of "LA Woman."

jim was rather funny.........you can't disregard the effect the doors had on the music industry.jim was larger than life.read the book noone here gets out alive by danny sugarman.....i use to love the doors music but as time wore on it started to sound dirgey.it was kinda eerie.do you know who played bass for them?he use to hide behind a screen.funeral music....just don't rock....jim caused riots...i think his poems are good but not great.horse latitudes and the lizard are faves.if he would have wrote a book,it would have been a million seller.he did more drugs than they made i think....lol to call him a reluctant star seems right but wronmg too...i think the should have called themselves "how big an ass will jim be today"....he was a moody guy.lost in the world of no direction.they rocked....

I think his drug use is exaggerated. He was a just another drunking Irishman really. At least that's what they implied in that book of which you speak.

Sucks how they didn't have a bass player and just used bass pedals on the keyboard, that's pretty degrading to bass players.

I'd like to say thank you on behalf of the group and ourselves, and I hope we pass the audition.
