I've always had my doubts about The Doors and Jim Morrison's "visionary" lyrics — their first records brought overt neurosis to rock, which perhaps didn't need it. I prefer The Rolling Stones or Love when it comes to ’60s rock, but Morrison had charisma, and the band had style. And when it comes to rock albums, The Doors' 1971 L.A. Woman holds up quite well as an example of white blues parody and hypnotic arrangements that benefit from Ray Manzarek's expert keyboards. "Riders on the Storm" demonstrates Morrison's gift for the hook, and the Lizard King sounds at home with his overstated blues persona. Led by Nashville drummer Jerry Pentecost, Mayhem has previously recreated such classics (well, I guess they're classics, but I'm waiting for them to tackle The Miracles' 1975 City of Angels) as Elvis Costello's This Year's Model and Huey Lewis and the News' Sports.
