LA Woman confirms the Doors transition into the world of Rock and Roll with a smattering of blues thrown in for good measure. Morrison Hotel, their last album, started their transition into this arena but LA Woman shows a more mature output, the next logical step after Morrison Hotel. When this record came out it was widely speculated that this album was going to be there last, this was without the hindsight of Morrison’s imminent death in Paris. Whether this true or not I feel that the LP has a reflective quality about it, like the band knew it was the end of the road. The product of their work is outstanding. When the album was produced, ... Read the complete review

I have been a Doors fan for about 8 years now and pull out one of their CD's every couple of weeks. LA Woman is consistently good from start to finish, LA Woman is Jim's Au Revoir before expiration in Paris and it is a dandy. The title cut is one of the all time greats, packing great images of LA into lively keyboard and guitar work; Mr. Mojo Risin' is not exceptional but is like an eye of a hurricane leading into a powerful climax. The Wasp also has great lyrics by Jim, and excellent drumming by John rides through primitive style instrumental rhythms and beats. Riders on the Storm is also a classic, and evokes a dark mood that is more broadly palatable than . Read the complete review

The final album released during Jim Morrison's lifetime, LA Woman is a return to top form from the Doors. Released in 1971 (the year of Jim Morrison's death) the band decided that this album would be a back to basics album with a focus on 'blues-rock'. They found a new engineer in Bruce Botnick after a fallout with Paul Rothchild and got to work in the studio in late 1970. As with many Doors albums, the tracks are a mix of songs by Robbie Krieger with Morrison lyrics added later and Morrison lyrics with Doors music added later, but both formulas blend well on this album, so much so its hard to tell which is which without reading biographies / ...

LA Woman, The Doors, 1971 -------------------- Background -------------------- The Doors were one of the 60's greatest and original rock acts. Bridging the gap between psychadelia and heavy rock they exemplified the laid back cool groove of the hippie lifestyle. LA Woman was the band's final album after six years together. With the forceful persona of the band's unpredictable front man, Jim Morrison, the band's place in rock history was assured. Amazingly enough most of the album was recorded live and apart from a few overdubs is pretty amazing really when you listen to the quality of the recorded sound. LA Woman was the band's ...

L.A. Woman was the sixth and last studio album recorded by The Doors with singer Jim Morrison, who died in July 1971 while the album was still in the charts. It is made up largely of blues rock tracks, with singer Morrison's voice audibly throatier and deeper, the result of years of drug and alcohol abuse. The album opens with The Changeling, an uptempo song that finds Morrison yelling "I'm a changeling... see me change" in a threatening growl. Love Her Madly is another of those light, rather poppy songs along the lines of Love Street and the like. Been Down So Long (from which the title of my review is taken) is a harder, more rocky song with a ... Read the complete review

|Kenny In America - Kenny G. - Jazz - 2013||How To Save A Life - The Fray|
'How To Save a Life' and 'Over My Head' are excellent tracks.
Most of the album is highly disappointing.

Some powerful vocals, excellent instrumental work, strong production values.
A lot of the time the vocal performance lacks passion.

A little repetition

Very chilled out and great if you are drunk
piss poor any other time
|Dark Days/Light Years - Super Furry Animals|
Epic as always, a very "live" feel, even more so compared to 2007's Hey Venus
A few songs sound out of place because of a stripped back or out of place feeling
