  • The sound is rich and lively, with solid brass and punchy drums - thanks Bruce Botnick, where would The Doors be without you?
  • Full of great songs: Touch Me, Runnin' Blue, Wild Child, Wishful Sinful and the amazingly trippy Soft Parade extended suite
  • "Much like a true “parade” of an English fugue, the song morphs from Morrison’s a capella sermon-like intro to a Baroque ballad to a show tune-like section to the long rock outro, the music masterfully following the flowing, stream of consciousness lyric." Hell yeah!
