The Soft Machine Operator
More for completists than casual listenersReviewed in the United Kingdom on 10 January 2021
Unlike the previous 2 'Morrison-less' albums, this features Morrison's voice taken from live recordings and recordings of his poetry. The band plays over this. The music isn't thrilling, but it's nice to hear them all playing together and it fits the spoken word aspect well. The odd snippet of live material breaks it up nicely. It's really for completists and fans of Morrison.

Ghostly. Sorta.Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 13 October 2019
Always had a soft spot for this album. It cane out in 1978 when i was 12 and my brother-in-law bought it. Some new music and some reusing of old Doors songs over bits of spoken words of Morrison's recorded before his death. Obviously, otherwise that would be spooky.
The lizard king at his bestReviewed in the United Kingdom on 14 March 2021
Shaman and poet! Atavistic pleasure to listenReviewed in the United Kingdom on 3 September 2014
Shaman, poet, charismatic performer...all in one. American prayer is one of my favourite pieces created by Jim. Full of magic and new perception of world. World seen with eyes of Lizard King. Pure poetry that will linger in your mind and flow in your blood. Every time i listened to American prayer I felt like going into trans that led me to different levels of darkness, deepness, wilderness. Atavistic and prime. Still so intense... Lizard King welcomes all of us to experience the taste and flavors of shadows that are inside each of us... Enjoy Feast Of Friends!

Doors with a differenceReviewed in the United Kingdom on 4 September 2020
Certainly a Doors album with a difference. I wouldn’t say I’m a great fan of poetry but this offering with Morrison’s spoken words and brilliant band music backing ,has grown on me over time.Give it a try,I don’t think you will be disappointed if you are a true Doors fan.
