10 Songs, 35 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

The Doors’ second album, Strange Days, continues to plunder the band’s early L.A. club repertoire. “Moonlight Drive” had been among the group’s earliest tunes and was given the full psychedelic treatment in the studio with Robbie Krieger’s hallucinatory guitar runs brilliantly complimenting singer Jim Morrison’s visions of sex and death. “You’re Lost Little Girl” emphasizes Morrison’s crooner ambitions, while “People Are Strange” is a hard-hitting piece of truth wrapped up as a pop song. “Horse Latitudes” is poetry backed by music concrete. “Love Me Two Times” is the perfect straightforward pop number, complete with Krieger’s guitar twirls. However, it’s the ominous keyboard-driven pop of the title track, “I Can’t See Your Face In My Mind” and “My Eyes Have Seen You” that present the Doors in the strongest form to date. The eleven minutes of “When the Music’s Over” remains one of the Doors’ most powerful and cathartic statements, riveting from its butterfly whisper to the scream of “We want the world and we want it now.”

The Doors Hit Big Again

With the original Doors album They hit big with Break On Through, The End, and Light My Fire the band comes back with Strange Days. With this album they showed how psychedelic rock was done. With the hit like People Are Strange, Love Me Two Times, Showed the world what they can do

Still Sticks in my Mind

The Doors first album obviously has it's place in rock history, but Strange Days to me is equally as important, partially because it brought the eerie, slightly creepy, yet seductive music of the Doors, which was part of Morrison. The album cover itself brings the shivers of the carnival's dark side. I remember buying this album and bringing it to my girlfriend's house.....when Horse Latitudes came on, she cried and made me stop the record!!!! Ah, those were the 60's.....to me, the songs Strange Days, and People are Strange really typify the feel of the album. "People are uneven, when your down" just like walking through the Mirror Mazes with the crazy mirrors! Miss you creepy humor, Jim!

Strange Days

This is one of my personal favorite The Doors albums. This album has a great flow, track after track. Also, this album has great vocals, great drum solos, and great guitar solos as well. Finally, the instruments wrap around the vocals like no other, and intertwine perfectly. I only wish that we had another The Doors LP, or EP to look forward to...
