The Doors - Strange Days

The Doors' 1967 follow-up didn't match the success of their self-titled debut, but Strange Days excelled in delivering a much better overall record that documents the band's experimentation and musicianship. When originally released, critics cited its progression on the Doors' debut, with Rolling Stone praising it as more effective and representing the theatricality of the Doors' in opposition to counterparts like the Rolling Stones and Jimi Hendrix. Seen through Jim Morrison, the band was evocative and expanded expressively upon rock and roll. Strange Days, though cited in 1967 as an improvement, only reached no. 3 in Billboard largely with The Doors still selling well on a lengthy stay in the charts. Regardless, this 50th-anniversary edition is a worthy reissue, with a simple approach celebrating the value of the original album and the two methods of listening to it in 1967: stereo and mono.

Released in a crowded and exciting year of music (1967), Strange Days documented a concerted attempt to expand on popular music and fully realize the Doors' uniqueness. - Richard Driver, PopMatters.com
