    I am always amused by mixed reviews on most reissues. It makes me truly wonder exactly what people are or aren't hearing. I feel some folks are trying a bit too hard, while others may be overly hyping a release because they are simply happy to have a copy. Perhaps the truth falls somewhere in the middle.

    By the way, my copy is passable. No complaints at the price point.

      really bad pressing. Very muddy. Multiple pops - at least 3 on "Break on through". Well, what do you want for a $20 release?!
      • verdantdivision's avatar
        sounds decent enough for a $20 reissue, but both copies ive had of this were pretty bowled.

          for a reissue It plays great. after hearing how much noise that's on the original releases :) i am quite content. but if u very picky and don't like old school sound stick with the CDs or digital :)

            I bought this in 2013 and thought it was dull sounding, I maintain that almost 10 years later. The worst sounding of my Doors vinyl. Generally feel the Doors were recorded great and always sound good on vinyl. Would avoid.

              Just recently got this 2009 Rhino and it sounds great both master and quality just like the other Rhino reissues... Had/have an 80s stereos repress, 50th Mono, VMP Mono and this one is the best for sure.

                Phenomenal press. Simple packaging, great mixes. The hits are a lot louder than the deep cuts, as per usual with these reissues. I can highly recommend this reissue though.

                  As usual, a dish warped RTI pressing. I would avoid and go the EU version pressed by Optimal.

                    An OK pressing,Very Slightly off centre spindle hole. Not as vibrant as my Rhino release “LA Woman”. This one is at least flat. My LA Woman was warped like a roller coaster, but my local LP shop fixed it with a Vinyl Flat heated press machine near flat.

                      Not sure why "Break on through" and "The end" needed to be edited in this day and age. I would have understood it if this were a 60's pressing considering the drug innuendos were pretty racy for their day. But these days, the lyric "she get high" is about as tame as it gets, even without a parental advisory sticker. I've heard worse on my local pop radio station. Otherwise it sounds great.
