Doors - Morrison Hotel - Cd
Top Customer Reviews
The reason being that listening now to "Morrison Hotel" one is not left feeling that this was a group in exit mode. Instead it was one that could still lay down a full set of energetic and memorable songs all well sung and played and well recorded and produced by the duo of Paul Rothschild and Bruce Botnick. The three musicians show yet again why LA always had a harder edge than SF in the late 1960s when it came to playing rock and blues. While a number of songs may recycle prior ideas not least due to Morrison's continual plagiarising of book titles to inpsire his song writing, they are none the worse for that.
When it came out this record got panned based largely on people's memories of those first two recordings and claims of it being just more of the same. However the lack of over inflated workouts ("The End" and "When the music's over") and a better focus on shorter and sharper songs plus a greater energy and sense of rock and roll ("Roadhouse Blues" & "You make me real") make for my ears a much better overall set. Special highlight is Robbie Krieger's guitar playing throughout of short and memorable solos and licks - a continual joy and sadly heard too little of post the Doors demise. It is no surprise that such energy was also on show in the subsequent Live double LP set.
With the final recording "LA Woman" yet to come, "Morrison Hotel" has no sense of decline or despair about it - it is just great music that as a whole is a much more enjoyable listen in 2006 than the now rather thinner sounding first two LPs.
There are not any hit singles on the group's fifth studio album, which is undoubtedly why it went over better with the fans of the Doors, even if it only made it to #4 on the Billboard album charts. To help validate the blues the Doors brought in the great sessions jazz guitarist Ray Neopolitan, albeit as a bass player (the Doors never really bothered with one). The requisite touch of the exotic can be found in songs like "Waiting for the Sun," "Queen of the Highway," and "Indian Summer." Morrison, who was noticeably disengaged in terms of both his lyrics and his singing on previous albums, is back to waxing poetic big time, as evidenced by "Ship of Fools," which mixes nihilistic imagery with prospects for hope. Again, Morrison is found commenting on the counterculture, singing about how "Everyone was hanging out/Hanging up and hanging down/Hanging in and holding fast.Read more ›

this is one of the doors greatest albums,it sounds brill on vinyl the production is fantastic for an old album.Published on 24 Dec. 2013 by Daza
This gets 5 stars not because it's the best Doors album, although it's still excellent, but because it hasn't 'suffered' too much from the interfering of the Remastering Brigade. Read morePublished on 27 Sept. 2013 by forestfan
