5 stars After releasing their first album, the band managed to produce another masterpiece straight after it during the same year, which I see as a really exceptional achievement. The album starts with solemn and surreal feelings of the opening title song, followed by the very hazy "You're Lost Little Girl", which has really very dreamy feeling in it. "Love Me Two Times" moves into more down-to-earth rocker, reaching really powerful levels from the singer in the end. The next tune "Horse Latitudes" is a really great and powerful opener for the following "Moonlight Drive". It consists of Morrison's surreal poem which he recites in powerful pathos over the chaotic psychedelic soundwall created by the band. The song which follows it is then more traditional rock song, also growing to exceptional heights of power. Jim was such a powerful singer, and in this kind of performances he really shines. The following tune "People Are Strange" is another melodic Doors classic, and after the few following good tunes the album ends to a long epic "When the Music's Over". I really like this powerful track, and it's not any kind of carbon copy from "The End", the long closer of their previous album. Along with that record mentioned, if you get this and "Waiting for The Sun", I think you have an ultimate trilogy of classic 60's American psychedelic music in your hands, burning with power and shining with innovative ideas.
