An American Prayer
Moody and mesmerizing, An American Prayer is an interesting album of Jim Morrison reading his poetry over the Doors ' music. An American Prayer was finished by the remaining members of the Doors after Morrison 's death and finally released in it was remastered and re-released in with bonus tracks. Those familiar with the lyrics of the Doors will not be surprised, but others may be put off because Morrison is unafraid to use crude imagery and talk unabashedly about taboo topics such as sex and religion. Although many dismiss his poetry as simplistic random musings, Morrison is a gifted lyricist with a vivid imagination. The album also demonstrates how the other musicians in the band create a mood that breathes life into Morrison 's dark, twisted visions. The music excerpts of "Peace Frog" and "Wasp Texas Radio and the Big Beat " provide a welcome air of familiarity, and the definitive live version of "Roadhouse Blues" in the middle of the album provides a nice respite from the barrage of stories and metaphors. However, An American Prayer must be listened to in one sitting to be fully appreciated, preferably at nighttime when one is alone and can devote full attention to the listening experience.
