4.0 out of 5 stars One morning he awoke in a green hotel, 7 Feb. 2007
This review is from: Waiting For The Sun [Expanded] [40th Anniversary Mixes] (Audio CD)
The Doors back catalogue has been due a makeover for years, and wow, haven't they spent some effort on it. The sound quality on these discs has never been bettered in my opinion. If you're thinking of upgrading your entire Doors collection, consider the Perception Box Set, if not read on...

This album contains some great songs (Five to One, Unknown Soldier), but it's not up to the exemplary standard of the first two albums. Songs like My Wild Love; Yes, the River Knows; We Could Be So Good Together and Love Street are OK songs, but they're musically and lyrically `light'. They're not the dense, poetic, dark, sinister, songs that crowd the first two Doors albums, and pale when compared against them.

However, the bonus cuts here are particularly interesting. Celebration of the Lizard is the highlight here. This was the song, or piece, that was intended to fill a whole side of the album, but the band were never happy with the result. The studio cut here is not at all bad, though whether it's closer to the Doors' goal than the recording on Absolutely Live or Live in New York is a moot point. Not to Touch the Earth was an outtake from Celebration that made it onto the album as a song in its own right. Albinoni's Adagio In G Minor was always an odd one for the Door's canon methinks...
