Hard And Soft But Plenty Good

  • Jul 5, 2003
In my book the Doors could do little wrong. Whereas The Soft Parade is probably the second worst of the Jim Morrison Doors recordings, it still is loaded with quality material.

Touch Me and Wishful Sinful are two softer tunes that greatly combine the lush horns and strings with Jim Morrison's passionate vocals. Love the saxaphone solo on Touch Me and the ending where Jim chants Stronger Than Dirt!!!!

The title track is truly a keeper on this record. The many changes in rhythm on this one make it a true keeper. Wild Child and Shaman's Blues are true stunning examples of the old school Doors where Ray Manazrek's organ takes me to a special place.

Runnin' Blue is a little bit hokey but certainly not a bad songs by any means. Do It is an average track. But the Doors average music would blow away great material by such mediocre bands like Foriegner and Survivor.

Again, not quite on the level of LA Woman, The Doors, or Morrison Hotel but close enough to where it belongs in your collection.
