People are strange ....,
This review is from: Strange Days (Audio CD)
I don't usually bother looking at reviews of albums, especially one like this that has been part of my life since I bought a vinyl version in 1968. However, no other album has a place in my life like this one. Quite simply this is the best album from the greatest rock band that has ever walked the planet. Their dependence on Jim is evident by the fact that they have produced nothing since his death worthy of The Doors name. So this is the epitaph of a rock genius. Anyway, that's my colours fastened to the mast!
This CD version is a delight. I still play vinyl, but this is a rare example of improvement when re-mastered onto CD. I think this is largely because CDs can make use of silence so much better than vinyl, so When The Music's Over springs out with a freshness that takes you back to The Roundhouse 1968, for those of us lucky enough to be there. For those that weren't, this is THE album to take you into The Doors. Play around with The Doors and Light My Fire; jump to LA Woman and it's polished musicianship, but ultimately take on this album. Someone described WTMO in disparaging terms above. Well, people are strange. Frankly, if you don't get this track then get advice!
