The best doors compilation- disc 2 offers more surprises than the first,
This review is from: The Very Best Of The Doors (Audio CD)
The truth is, all of The Door's albums are worth owning and because each album was so different in style, it is important to purchase each one seperately to understand the true artistic diversity of the band. However in terms of packaging and tracklisting, this is the best compilation ever. The 40th anniversary remixes have noticible clarity over the previous CD releases, although it is disc 2 that sees some of the most noticable improvements. Love her madly and hello I love you are subtly different as are riders on on the storm and others although it is these former two that are superior through enchancement.
The running order on the first disc is little different from the previous best of, but disc 2 is nicely balanced with all the up-tempo pop of "the soft parade" mated to the single waiting for the sun and the opener from Morrison Hotel finally being more aptly placed as a rip-roaring finale. This is a great compilation, and even if you own all the albums, is just about different to warrant a purchase, especially for a car journey.

Great review, for someone just dipping his toe into the Doors pond I shall indeed purchase this 1st and take your advice after a few listens to go out and buy the original albums.

There is no Disc 2. You seem to have reviewed the wrong compilation.
