I'm with Imp. The Doors were overrated.

Hey don't get me wrong I am not a Doors pumper but I DO know that they are vastly superior to Winehouse.

Better overall? Not interested in trying to make that argument.

But Back to Black is a fantastic album that I would rather listen to than any Doors album.

that's about the same as saying Britney Spears' debut is better than any album from Billie Holiday

inexcusably ... something

So now The Doors are such a sacred cow that we mustn't say anything negative about them either? High times.

The Doors sort of suck, but that debut is pretty good, maybe on par with Back To Black. I just find their albums so filler-laden I can't listen to them in full. 3 or 4 great tracks an album though.

no, it's more that Back to Black is a set of decent to good songs, very well sung (by a somewhat one-dimensional singer) and very well produced (by a somewhat one-dimensional producer)

I don't give a toss what you make of The Doors
they're not one of my top 10 favourite bands
but they're better than Back to Black by just about all the standards I apply to music

Nah rubbish. She ain't in Jim Morrisons league. And to put her in the same sentence as Hendrix is just fucking criminal. Let me think now I wonder if she'll still be talked about and played as often in 41 years time like Hendrix? Mmm I seriously doubt it! She probably belongs in the same sentence as Wacko though hehehe

The Doors were unique and influential, can we agree on that? Morrison was a charismatic and "possessed" frontman that paved the way for guys like Boner (Patti smith ain't his only forebearer).

Now I agree with El Mel that the albums aren't very consistent, and that the band is difficult to listen to for a long period of time. But man, some of those songs are pretty fucking amazing, and they're more deserving of notoriety than generic cockrockers like Aerosmith.

Winehouse was nowhere near putting out something as good as L.A. Woman. Apples and oranges here, obv, but she wasn't on the Janis Joplin level yet, either.

Thankfully, or no thanks, that is your opinion.



Amy was barely a blip on the musical radar. If she had done more work in her short life, maybe an argument could me made to the contrary.


10 years from now, we'll remember the drugs, the beehive hairdo, the tattoos and that whopping one great album that she recorded.

The consensus on The Doors around here seems to be overwhelmingly negative. Of the B&C regulars, Lazarus and I seem to be the only fans, and I really cannot understand for the life of me why that is.

Count me in as a Doors fan too. For a band that wasn't together too long in the grand scheme of things, they certainly put out a wealth of material. Hell from 1967-1971, they put out 6 albums. And they did that despite Jim being an asshole alcoholic.
