by The Doors
Released: Aug 1972
The public's lukewarm reaction to Other Voices didn't stop The Doors from dropping a second album in the post-Morrison era. On Full Circle the band accentuates the pub rock and soul-pop vibes found on its predecessor. There are some fun tunes here, stuff that would've been better received had a group of young upstarts -- minus all the baggage, obviously -- recorded it. "4 Billion Souls" is real quirky, zig-zagging psych-pop. Another cool cut is "Verdilac," an odd hybrid of Hot Rats-style grease funk and fusion jammery. The Doors' last hit, "The Mosquito," exudes an intriguing Tropicalia feel.
