The two opening tracks "Tell All the People" and "Touch Me"are both great songs, though I would have preferred gentler arrangements. But the Doors were obviously seeking new grounds at this point of their career. "Shaman's Blues" is back to the classical Doors sound. A very good track!
"Do it" is also close to being classical Doors, though not really a very interesting track.. The same could be said about "Easy Ride", which comes out pretty lightweight. "Wild Child" is a bluesy track, not unlike the style of their final album "L.A. Woman" - though not one of their best blues songs.
Fortunately the last three tracks are the Doors at their best. "The Running Blues" is varied song very different musical parts; and a charming vocal performance by Robbie Krieger in the country-break. "Wishful Sinful" is a great pop-song and the second single to be taken from the album.
The long title track is a suite of different musical parts, of which most are really great. Fortunately this great finale was allowed to be just the Doors - no outside orchestration. "Welcome to the Soft Parade"
