3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on March 26 2007
Format: Audio CD
The Doors were one of those really great rock bands -- they flared up briefly, shone brightly, and then died away with the untimely death of their frontman, Jim Morrison. And listening to their debut album, it's easy to see why people still listen -- hard-hitting, swirling bluesy-rock songs, with sensual vocals in the middle.

It opens with gritty riffs and a rippling organ, forming a catchy, dark melody that seems to be full of urgency. And the song Morrison sings is full of emotion, ranging from affection to a haunted paranoia. "I found an island in your arms/Country in your eyes/Arms that chain us/Eyes that lie/Break on through to the other side!" he sings smoothly.

The songs that follow are in the same musical mold, but they try out different combos -- jazzy rock with mellotron, plaintive raw rockers, a delicately soaring mythic ballad, rough bluesy rock with a twangy edge, and the howling, impassioned "Back Door Man."

It also contains two of their most famous songs: the legendary "Light My Fire," a shimmeringly catchy little single. And it finishes up with the legendary "The End," a sort of eerie symbolic journey-song with an Oedipal twist. "Ride the snake, ride the snake/To the lake, the ancient lake, baby/The snake is long, seven miles/Ride the snake...hes old, and his skin is cold..."

This isn't the Doors' most polished work, but it's definitely their most passionate -- you can hear in Morrison's voice, and in the blasting-out instrumentation. These guys were just starting their musical journey, and they were full of enthusiasm and musical inspiration.

And that musical inspiration shines in these melodies, whether it's raw grimy stuff influenced by the blues, or some more polished, danceable songs.

Possibly the finest packaging and vinyl quality I have ever seen/heard. Also possibly the most expensive vinyl I have purchased so I was pleased to find no issues with vinyl or packaging. If you like The Doors then you know you need this vinyl.

I have frequently seen the "overpriced" Japanese import CD's since I started using the internet in the 90's, and have always wondered what the hype was about. After making some big oil money, I decided to splurge and purchase this as my first one, since I have always liked the Doors, and recently bought the equipment to play SACD and make it sound good too. The entire package reeks of quality, from the 40th Anniversary liner notes to the superb audio, and having the little Japanese inserts just adds a little something special to the whole experience.

As for the album itself, I won't go into detail reviewing it, but will say that it ranks not only in my top debut albums of all time, but also in my top albums period. The SACD and price tag are probably only worth it if you're a music buff and love the Doors, but if you are, then by all means....

I believe they are or already have recently released the Doors catalogue in SACD remasters, which would bring the price down drastically as they aren't Japanese exclusives anymore. And when I say catalogue, I mean the good stuff!

I'm not going to write a long article to try and impress people with my musical knowledge, which, as you can tell from the other reviews listed here, is suspect at best. Those kind of reviews are available from actual writers at your favourite site. Simply put, this is a great CD by a great band of that era. If you hate The Doors, maybe you shouldn't buy it.

Great addition to any Doors fan's collection. It was the first album I'd ever heard of the Doors, and I have to admit, it's still my favourite. Check out the track list, and if the price is right, I would definitely recommend it as a purchase.

Let me tell you how great this album is. I found every song so great, I grew up thinking this was a greatest hits album. Until I realized I was an idiot...and wrong, I always never considered this one of their greatest albums because I never thought it was a regular album. That being said, you can already understand the power this has. Either that or how much of an idiot I am.
The Doors is my all time favorite band. Morrison, Manzarek, Densmore, and Krieger...the finest in each of their professions. From Morrison's swagger and unintelligible poetry at times, to Manzarek's blues and soul organ, then forth to Densmore's eccentric jazz drumming, and finishing up with the inane flamenco aspects of Krieger's finger picking guitar work...The Doors in retrospect, own. Their debut is such a powerhouse and makes you scream, explode, and reach for the air, that you really just can't get enough of it.
The singles, the hits, and the golden ones are obvious. Who in their right mind HASN'T heard 'Break on Through' or 'Light My Fire'? Or even 'Whiskey Bar'? It's apparent that this album has highlights. But, look further and you can see just where the Doors progressed. From the opening rawhide thunder opener, 'Break on Through' we slowly diminish into this psychological warp that is, 'The End.' Surprisingly, that's exactly where the Doors left off and began with their follow up, 'Strange Days.'
While this is their debut, it is almost a greatest hits album. It culminates everything the damn Doors are. It has psychological, psychedelic rock with that jazz, that blues, and even that thrill. You watch sneak previews at the theaters today and it's not too different than this. Their self titled debut is a demo to what was to come, the ride they were to take us on.
