iTunes Review

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.”

Customer Reviews

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' 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!

Feels like

...little sister to big brother, which is the first album. The music is not as sharp or aggressive, but still gets it's teeth into ya.

Great Follow-Up

After the enormous success from their first record, the pressure was on for a brilliant follow-up. At the time, many fans disliked this album because it was too abstract. That's actually why I love it. This album is more loose compared to their first hard hitting masterpiece. "People Are Strange," "Moonlight Drive," and "Love Me Two Times," lyrically are brilliant. "Moonlight Drive" was the very first song ever written by Jim. As to the long track "The End," "When the Music's Over" is very similar as well with Jim's poetry overflowing as the track progresses. An overlooked album that should defiantly deserve a second listen.


Formed: July, 1965 in Los Angeles, CA

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '60s, '70s

The Doors, one of the most influential and controversial rock bands of the 1960s, were formed in Los Angeles in 1965 by UCLA film students Ray Manzarek, keyboards, and Jim Morrison, vocals; with drummer John Densmore and guitarist Robby Krieger. The group never added a bass player, and their sound was dominated by Manzarek's electric organ work and Morrison's deep, sonorous voice, with which he sang and intoned his highly poetic lyrics. The group signed to Elektra Records in 1966 and released its...
