195 of 1001 Albums: The Doors’ Morrison Hotel

After the failure of The Soft Parade, The Doors, decided to guide their music a bit more toward their roots in Morrison Hotel. Except keeping a twinge of blues to some of the songs. The album established the band among the critics again though it spawned no hit singles. It reached #4 on the US album charts, and #12 on the UK charts. The cover of the album was shot at the actual Morrison Hotel where they had to sneak in to do the photo after the owners told them they could not the photo there. 
My Thoughts
The Doors album that I first featured here I was quite a fan of. I hadn’t heard anything like it, and enjoyed it. Since then The Doors have changed quite a bit. Not in a bad way, but they have grown a lot. They’ve added some different elements of their music, and some sounds the same as when I first listened. I liked the new combination of music since it kept things interesting. Though I didn’t like this better than the one I have listened to, I still thought it was good. They do their own thing for the most part.
