just a random poll. 5 long epic "trippy" songs. which of these do you prefer?
Riders or Echoes.
Going to have to go with Riders as it's so atmospheric and well, perfect.
It has to be Riders for me ....no contest.
The End and Echoes. Hard To choose.
I had to go with "love them all equally", because I do.
Voted for Riders,but I also like The End and Echoes very much.
Echoes, but I like them all except King Crimson.
Not that fond of Epitah, but can't choose between the rest. Odd poll; doesn't seem 'fair and balanced' to have 40% of the choices being The Doors, who aren't that trippy anyway.
Doors ''The End''
''Riders On The Storm'' is simply one of the greatest tunes ever recorded by anybody.
Echoes by a long shot.
Echoes, as I can barely stand to listen to the doors at all anymore. I loved them in my teenage years in the early 80s as they were seen as semi-cool in some revival way back then, and kinda listened a lot to them in my early 30s again, but geez, there is only so much to be gotten from a 40 some year old song to me.
I know most of their songs so well, that I cant even stand to hear 5 notes of "The End" or of "Riders on the storm"...
Echoes ... I never get tired of this track.
"Riders On The Storm"
'Riders On The Storm'. I love 'Epitaph' but I consider it to be a poem rather than a song.
Riders on the Storm
Had to go with "Echoes"...back in my younger days Meddle was required listening whilst tripping out (I seem to recall I was under the influence of certain psychedelics that were fashionable back in the 60's when introduced to that album...what an experience!)
I like "1983" as well even though, like a fair bit of Hendrix, it comes off as a little dated (IMO).
I have no use for The Doors. Not even to use their CDs as coasters.
I'm not a big Doors fan, but Riders is brilliant.
The atmosphere is just unbelievable for a 1967 debut. It still blows me away all these years later.
I went with Riders, but it was a close run to Echoes. I like the rest except for The End which I hate
