Background: For many listeners and casual fans, The Doors 1967 debut LP is regarded as their best effort. Containing the hits “Break on Through”, “Light My Fire” and the lengthy epic, “The End”, the album is perhaps the bands greatest effort. gave The Doors a 5 star review:

A tremendous debut album, and indeed one of the best first-time outings in rock history, introducing the band’s fusion of rock, blues, classical, jazz, and poetry with a knockout punch. The lean, spidery guitar and organ riffs interweave with a hypnotic menace, providing a seductive backdrop for Jim Morrison’s captivating vocals and probing prose. “Light My Fire” was the cut that topped the charts and established the group as stars, but …the 11-minute Oedipal drama “The End” was the group at its most daring and, some would contend, overambitious. It was nonetheless a haunting cap to an album whose nonstop melodicism and dynamic tension would never be equaled by the group again, let alone bettered.
