"I'll tell you every place and person that I've been." Cobalt blue and dour all over, AN AMERICAN PRAYER is primarily an up-close studio collage of Jim Morrison's verse (read by the author) spread over glorious Doors-rock, interspersed with live snatches of the singer/poet's on-stage antics. The images here evoke the seedy underbelly of post-hippie America, the disturbingly familiar manifestations of a troubled national conscience. The recording does, however, manage to maintain a sparkling psychedelic quality throughout.
Several of the songs will be familiar to those who own the soundtrack to the 1991 film The Doors, but the original context gives them more weight. The title track is like a combined reprise to "Ghost Song" and the classic "The End," replete with Morrison's strange questions and even strangers assertions. The band sounds crisp, playing music that has a distinctively '70s thrust. Robby Krieger's guitar rips as fluidly as ever. All in all, a candid tour through the dimly lit passages of a haunted soul--at once personal and quite American.
