Revue de presse

B&N Review, November 16, 2011
The Doors is a reflection on the Doors' music in time and over time -- and it is a book about the band like no other.”
“Just My Type” 12/11:  “Greil Marcus, music critic, cultural historian, infinite riffer and groover, has a gift for sweeping readers up in his passions…. Reading the book gives the experience of being in the studio with the band: the world outside still exists, but we’re safe in the booth—no background noise, or groupies, or memories of Mother. Just us, the music, and Marcus. It’s a pleasure.”
Washington Post
“Prosey, frequently brilliant…. Marcus has the ability to play tour guide in the places we think we already know. It’s exactly what makes him one of the greatest music scribes to ever do the job, and it’s what makes this book worth reading, love or hate the Doors.”

Financial Times

San Antonio Express-News, August 28, 2011
“With an astounding breadth of knowledge, Marcus unmasks The Doors in his latest missive from the cultural trenches.”

Publishers Weekly, September 5, 2011
"Music critic Marcus offers a relentlessly beautiful and insightful evaluation of the music of the Doors ... but also a complete rethinking of the Doors’ work as an entire story that captures the 1960s as 'a place, even as it is created, people know they can never really inhabit, and never escape'.... He contrasts a fascinating range of official and bootleg live recordings of such hit singles as “Touch Me” to show that by 1970 'a war between the band and its audience was underway, a war whose weapon were contempt on both sides.' This is an impressive tribute."

Présentation de l'éditeur

A fan from the moment the Doors' first album arrived, Greil Marcus saw the band many times at the legendary Filmore Auditorium and the Avalon Ballroom in 1967. Five years later it was all over.

Forty years after the singer Jim Morrison was found dead in Paris and the group disbanded, Greil Marcus muses on how one could drive from here to there, changing fom one FM pop station to another, and be all but guaranteed to hear two, three, four Doors songs in an hour. Whatever the demands in the music, they remained unsatisfied, in the largest sense unfinished, and absolutely alive.

There have been many books on the Doors. This is the first to bypass their myth, their mystique, and the death cult both of Jim Morrison and the era he was made to personify, and focus solely on the music. It is a story untold; all these years later it is a new story.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 More Doors. 14 octobre 2015
Par Wade Dizdar - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
A man of this intelligence and insight, with his story-weaving ability still tells us "Obama was the voice we had all been waiting for"? Really. I would not give that man a ride, anymore after this "healing of the blue and red" division. Definitely not the voice his former pastor needed to hear. I digress. The Doors like the Rolling Stones produced hits, heavy trips, sensations as verified professionals. Still.
Woven into their work and appearances are tangents and digressions, worthy of a lifetime of reflection, and for sharing. Greil Marcus is the man! A book called The Doors will disappoint for discographies, basic information and, certainly photographs.
The first, long chapter of Joan Didion's The White Album of 1971 visits an LA rec. studio scene, waiting for Jim Morrision. That is more in the spirit of this book, but it follows the records, the appearances and evokes the spirit which comes from hearing and seeing the grooves and the shows.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 The Doors , a lifetime of listening to five mean years - Graig Marcus 31 octobre 2012
Par Matt Gloss - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I found this not such an easy read , I was looking forward to just another rock bio or whatever, I don't think I really thought about it before buying.
First thing I noticed was how small,thin it was ,was expecting more.
A lot of the book (maybe 3/5ths )is about L.A or the cultural landscape around at the time the doors were together and not really about the doors at all , at first I found these excursions distracting and annoying as he was talkin about ie; Jess the pop artist in detail but once I sat next to the interweb thingy while I read I found it very informative.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 TOO CONFUSING, TOO CONVOLUTED.... 11 mai 2013

Reading this book is a real headache! Author does not have much to offer. At times I was thinking "what the hell is he talking about???" Had to scan the pages to get back to the real "subject" (the Doors & their music). I would not recommend this one. Glad I only paid 3.99. I own about 20 different books about Jim Morrison and/or the Doors, and nearly all of them are better, more satisfying than this one!
