Still on its own this album is excellent and has a ton of great Doors hits including Love Me Two Times, People Are Strange, Moonlight Drive, Strange Days and another 11 minute epic known as When The Music's Over.
Often known as the Doors' darkest release, Strange Days is very underrated. Even the "filler" tracks are excellent namely the moody You're Lost Little Girl. The only thing weak here is Horse Latitudes a wretched poem written by Jim Morrison. None the less, a formidable follow up.
Jim Morrison has often been quoted to saying this is his favourite Doors' album.
Many of the songs from Strange Days were written during the time the Doors were recording their first album (some even earlier). It has often been considered that Strange Days' songs were the left overs from the Doors first album sessions.
