    The first two rock acts signed to the Elektra label,the Doors' works have enjoyed tumultuous commercial and critical success while LOVE:S seminal FOREVER CHANGES,though universally touted as one of the finest recordings ever,sputtered at a mere #154 on the Biillboard sales chart,mostly due to frontman Arthur Lee's willingness to tour extensively as he felt the project mostly of LA area interest.Despite the Doors' obviously much wider notoriety,bottom line here for me is LOVE exhibited somewhat deeper and more explorative creative platform.What's YOUR take?

    They are different enough to a draw for me. Morrison had so much pent up anger...
    Arthur was much more laid back.

    Much as I love Forever Changes, The Doors debut remains one of my all time favourite albums. The lyrics and music of the Doors are just so much better than some of the really nonsense lyrics of Love's. -
    "Oh, the snot has caked against my pants
    It has turned into crystal
    There's a bluebird sitting on a branch
    I guess I'll take my pistol
    I've got it in my hand
    Because he's on my land"

    What was that about?

    @recgord27 I`ll have to say that I`m going to vote with its a drew for me as the nonsense lyrics of Love`s are for a time of the summer love `60`s yes...

    They are too different to chose from.
    Morrison was the angry, rebellious poet.
    Arthur more of the romantic beatnik with an occasional message.
