Background: Released in 1968, Waiting for the Sun was the third album by the Doors.

The album reached #1 on the U.S. charts and #16 in the UK. gave Waiting for the Sun a 3 1/2 star review:

The Doors’ 1967 albums had raised expectations so high that their third effort was greeted as a major disappointment. With a few exceptions, the material was much mellower, and while this yielded some fine melodic ballad rock in “Love Street,” “Wintertime Love,” “Summer’s Almost Gone,” and “Yes, the River Knows,” there was no denying that the songwriting was not as impressive as it had been on the first two records. …In fact, time’s been fairly kind to the record, which is quite enjoyable and diverse, just not as powerful a full-length statement as the group’s best albums.
