Forget the hype enjoy the goldmine,
This review is from: Weird Scenes Inside The Gold Mine (Audio CD)
Released originally in 1972 and it serves as a great intro to the band and surprisingly it doesn't contain all their best songs. Missing are The Changeling, Cars Hiss By My Window, You're Lost Little Girl & People Are Strange - buy it or just invest in all their records apart from their only poor record they made The Soft Parade. There's been alot of dross and hype attached to the legend of The Doors but the music is never over.

Good review about THE legendary Doors comp but I have to take exception to your comment about the Soft Parade. It is the most experimental and varied album of all their output. Controversial and derided in its time, and recorded by the band at its most fractious, The Soft Parade contains some absolute corkers. Admittedly, there are a couple that ever so slightly miss the mark, but the majority are stone cold classics, especially the title track. Please don't miss out on this interesting mid-era album that definitely doesn't take the title of "worst Doors record".

I would much rather listen to The Soft Parade than Waiting For The Sun: the songs may not be what you'd expect after their previous albums, but they're well written, well performed and well recorded, something that doesn't always apply to WFTS.
