Jim Morrison during his last phase, that of the scuzzy poet

Three up and three down with The Doors

Thumbs Down:
1. The band,
2. their first album and
3. Morrison as a singer
   are all consistently overrated

Thumbs Up:
1. No-one Gets Out of Here Alive was a good read
2. The Oliver Stone movie captured the mythic bullshit
3. Their last record with Jimbo, LA Woman, was legitimately exciting, and makes you think that if the fucker had lived, The Doors might have made some of the best music of the early-to-mid seventies
