As the "surviving" Doors had been working on ideas to present to Morrison -- if and when he returned from a sabbatical in Paris, France -- there is an organic flow that Variety Is The Spice Of Life - The Doors - Other Voices spilled over from the L. Woman album. Another undeniable plus to Other Voices is that after being relegated as sidemen, each of the players is given an outlet for their songs and underutilized talents. Speaking of the guitarist, he is credited with the bulk of the material, beginning with the whimsical ode to monogamy "Variety Is the Spice of Life.
Reaching back to the raw and ready sound of "Roadhouse Blues" is the semi-biographical and definitely metaphoric "Tightrope Ride" with direct references to the recently deceased Rolling Stones Variety Is The Spice Of Life - The Doors - Other Voices Brian Jones and seemingly implied about Morrison.
The band charge forward in pure power trio mode with plenty of interaction between the primary participants -- most notably Krieger's fiery fretwork and Manzarek 's authoritative vocals. Yet the gorgeous melody and arrangement defy any of the other slightly dated incongruities. The upbeat "I'm Horny, I'm Stoned" is undoubtedly a reflection of both where Krieger -- the song's author -- as well as the survivors of the emotionally frazzled '60s collective heads were at.
The mixing of ennui with an underlying paranoia provides a fascinating contrast. There is a soulful everyman quality to Manzarek 's embodiment of the "Wandering Musician" that reiterates his considerable range as a performer. While not an overt homage or tribute to Morrisonthere are a few obvious parallels within "Hang on to Your Life. No subtlety needed here. Although they'd never regain their former acclaim, the Doors would take this platter into the Top 40 and pull off a successful tour behind the project.
