With an intoxicating, genre-blending sound, provocative and uncompromising songs, and the mesmerizing power of singer Jim Morrison's poetry and presence, the Doors had a transformative impact not only on popular music but on popular culture.

The Doors' arrival on the rock scene in 1967 marked not only the start of a string of hit singles and albums that would become stone ... Read more in Amazon's The Doors Store

5.0 out of 5 stars Hindsight is a Wonderful Thing 22 Sep 2008
Format:Audio CD
Los Angeles' finest The Doors released their third album, "Waiting for The Sun", on the back of breaking the UK market with a new catchy song, only to find themselves caught between being far too underground for mass consumption and being overly commercial for their hardcore fans.

"Waiting for The Sun" was released in the summer of 1968 on Elektra Records, it saw The Doors release material of a much more laid back nature then their previous two efforts, with mixed results on the buying public. Much has been made of the inclusion of their big UK smash "Hello I Love You", a song previously recorded on a 1965 demo tape, here it is the opening track on this album three years later, aside from the criticism surrounding its inclusion, on its own it remains an excellent song.

Track two on the album is much more in line with the general mood of the album, "Love Street" is classic Doors meets ballad, giving Morrison free range to be as beautiful as ever creating laid back gold. This happens throughout the album, "Summer's Almost Gone", "Wintertime Love" and "Yes The River Knows" are songs which I can only describe as lovely, with Robby Krieger on guitar and Ray Manzarek on keys creating the backdrop needed for their charismatic frontman.

It should also be said that there are some classic oddball Doors' tunes to be had on this album too, noticeably with Track 3 "Not To Touch The Earth" and the antiwar song "The Unknown Soldier", both of which are a fine listen. Incidentally track 3 was to play a bigger part in the album then it actually did. This song is actually just a section of a much larger song, "Celebration of The Lizard", which featured on a later live album.

The criticisms of this album are not unknown to other bands from throughout history.

3.0 out of 5 stars IS THIS A REMASTER? 15 Aug 2011
I got this one as a present from my daughter since she knows I like vinyl. I had this lp some years ago and someone lent it and never returned it. From what i remember the sound was fuller and with more dynamics. The first track "Hello I love you" sounds especially thin, as if part of the music was removed. There is no sound stage, although some other tracks sound better. I think they used a digital remaster instead of using the original tape, that's the way it sounds to me. The artwork and the gatefold cover are very classy .

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic 6 April 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I was thrilled to receive the SACD remaster of the original. Analogue Productions did a good job as usual. I don't need to comment on the contents because I dig the Doors in general. All I can say is that SACD rules if prepared properly. Recommended for any fan of the Doors and SACD format.

4.0 out of 5 stars A typically distinctive Doors album 1 Sep 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Classic opener "Hello I love you" gives a bit of a false dawn, really. It's hypnotic, gritty beat is just classic Doors at their very rock and roll best. This is followed up by "Love Street", which you will either love or hate. It certainly hasn't aged too well, but is a decent enough song, although it is hardly "Crystal Ship" as seen on their debut. Track 3 is "Not To Touch The Earth" and is a great, surreal song that twists and turns, Morrison's vocals sounding totally sincere and justified. Tracks 5 and 6 are in the same vain as "Love Street", but it is the powerful "Unknown Soldier" that really picks the album up. The wonderful "Spanish Caravan" is mysterious and beautiful, with a flamenco guitar opening things up before the sweeping guitar takes over. "My Wild Love" is, to my knowledge, the only Doors track that has no music playing. Morrison croons his gorgeous tones over the top whilst an indian tribe chants in the background. This enhances Morrison's shaman image, and also keeps the album going nicely. Tracks 10 and 11 are interesting, but not the Doors at their best, and the way they perform it seems to suggest they know that. However, album ender "Five To One" is enormously powerful and wonderful. The classic Drum intro, quickly followed by the thudding guitar, set the scene and it soon escalates into perfection. In conclusion, a very strong and somewhat underrated Doors album that sees the band in typically intriguing fashion.

5.0 out of 5 stars Different - But Still Great 5 Jan 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I bought this new version of "Waiting for the Sun" to get a studio-version of the legendary unreleased song "Celebration of the Lizard". Obviously the strongest part of the song is, what was released on the original album as "Not to Touch the Earth", and the track is what it says, "a work in progress". Still interesting moments. The other takes of "Not to Touch the Earth" which are included as bonus-tracks have made me realize how good a song this really is.

What surprised me the most when I listened through the album was that I thought it sounded different. Was it really that long since I last heard it? I did not realize that the album had been both remastered and remixed. I guess it will take some time to get used to these new "versions" - but the sound is really crisp and clear, and if I want to hear the old mixes I can always return to the originals.

The original album contains some the Doors' most poetic and melodic moments like "Yes, The River Knows", the exquisite "Love Street" , which is one of the highlights of the album. The moving "Summer`s Almost Gone". "Wintertime Love" and "Spanish Caravan" are other highlights.

"Not to Touch the Earth" and "Five to One" : Classic Doors !!!
The hit singles "Hello I Love You" and "The Unknown Soldier" may not have aged as well as the rest of the album`s songs. Except of course the weak "My Wild Love" which probably always will annoy me.
