Strange Days
The Doors
ďMany of the songs on Strange Days had been written around the same time as the ones that appeared on The Doors, and with hindsight one has the sense that the best of the batch had already been cherry picked for the debut album. For that reason, the bandís second effort isnít as consistently stunning as their debut, though overall itís a very successful continuation of the themes of their classic album. Besides the hit Strange Days, highlights included the funky Moonlight Drive, the eerie Youíre Lost Little Girl, and the jerkily rhythmic Love Me Two TimesĒ (Unterberger).

ďMy Eyes Have Seen You and I Canít See Your Face in My Mind are minor but pleasing entries in the groupís repertoire that share a subdued Eastern psychedelic air. The 11-minute When the Musicís Over would often be featured as a live showstopper, yet it also illustrated their tendency to occasionally slip into drawn-out bombastĒ (Unterberger).
