The Doors- Waiting For The Sun (Album Review)

September 2, 2011

The Doors’ third studio album, released in 1968,  is easily its most interesting one. The band dives deeper into psychedelia and experimentation, while Jim wails or croons his poetry over the colorfully eclectic cacophony. The closing blues-rock monster “Five To One” proved to be timeless, juxtaposed to the contemporary swag of Jay-Z in the Kanye sampled “Takeover.” The band took the opportunity to make commentary about the Vietnam War in “The Unknown Soldier,” and incorporated black blues roots influences in “My Wild Love.” “Hello, I Love You” was a fun energetic rock-pop song, but gems like “Not To Touch The Earth” are what really made Waiting For The Sun one of The Doors’ best albums.

Key tracks: “Not To Touch The Earth” ~ “Summer’s Almost Gone” ~ “The Unknown Soldier” ~ “My Wild Love” ~ “Five To One”
