An American Prayer (Bonus Track Edition)

An American Prayer (Bonus Track Edition)

Seven years after Jim Morrison’s passing, the surviving members of The Doors carried out their frontman’s wish of releasing a poetry album, adding complex, if brief, accompaniments to his imagistic verses. The band’s storied catalog echoes throughout; “Newborn Awakening” frames Morrison’s funereal stanzas with the jammy “Peace Frog,” while “Roadhouse Blues” appears in live form. But the real attraction is Morrison’s commanding voice: Its messianic quality heightens the surrealism of his work and solidifies his status as one of rock’s enduring poets.
