About this album

Strange Days is the second album released by American rock band The Doors. The album was a huge commercial success, earning a gold record and reaching No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 200. Despite this, its producer, Paul Rothchild, considered it a commercial failure, even if it was an artistic triumph: “We all thought it was the best album. Significantly, it was also the one with the weakest sales. We were confident it was going to be bigger than anything The Beatles had done. But, there was no single. The record died on us.” Nonetheless, the album managed two Top 30 hits, a Top 3 placing on the US charts, and a platinum certification. Furthermore, the album certainly did nothing to derail the overall success of the Doors, as demonstrated the next year by their chart-topping follow-up Waiting for the Sun.

“Strange Days” partially consists of songs that did not make it onto their debut album, such as “Moonlight Drive”, which was one of the first songs written by Jim Morrison for The Doors. The song was recorded in 1965 (demo) and 1966 (intended for their first album). In 1967 a final version was recorded and released on this album. Strange Days contains some of The Doors’ most psychedelic songs. It includes songs such as “Strange Days”, “People Are Strange”, “Love Me Two Times” and “When the Music’s Over”. The latter is an epic poem that is comparable to the famous “The End”.

    I actually meant to say "Unhappy Girl" and not "You're Lost Little Girl" below, but the brilliance of this record is that EVERY song is awesome, so it works either way. But for the record "Unhappy Girl" is the one I slightly prefer out of the two songs here with "Girl" in the title. :-)

    The hits/more famous songs here ("Love Me Two Times," "People are Strange," "When the Music's Over," perhaps the title track) are amazing, but for me it's the deeper cuts that really make this one: "You're Lost Little Girl," "Moonlight Drive" and "My Eyes Have Seen You" in particular have this dark, forboding atmosphere to them that is nonetheless alluring and sexy. I really love this record.

    This whole album is a mysterious but amazing adventure, especially on psychedelics.

    I can't decide which Doors album I love the most but this and the self-titled could win the title.

    Glad to see this one getting some love on Last.fm. Most of the critics seem to think this is a step down from the debut. I wonder if they're listening to the same album we are, because for my money this is the Doors' best.
