"...by the Doors" ??[edit]

I was surprised to see the very first line in the page say that An American Prayer is "a studio album by the rock band the Doors." On the cover it says explicitly "Jim Morrison," with "music by The Doors." Give Jim his credit, this is his album. That the band added music is great, but his poetry is what this is about. Can someone change this?

American Prayer?[edit]

Why is An American Prayer currently redirecting to American Prayer? I always thought that the title is 'An American Prayer', and to be honest I've never heard anyone using the other title. I suggest swapping both pages. -- Parasti 15:15, 19 December 2005 (UTC)

Agreed. Please do so. --82.182.24.17 13:03, 15 January 2006 (UTC)

Stories and poetry.[edit]

An American Prayer contains not just poetry (or better, parts of poems) from the recording session, but also monologue from Morrison's movie titled HWY: An American Pastoral. I'm thinking of adding these to the Morrison article. Both the poetry session and the movie aren't very popular and it's somewhat difficult to find reliable information on them, though, and my English is far from fluent. So, if there are people willing to add a reference to the movie as well, please do. -- Parasti 15:26, 19 December 2005 (UTC)

An American Prayer is one of my favorite doors works.[edit]

This is what was in Jim's head this poetry this artwork of words. I think the rest of the band did a wonderful job of presenting these works in a way that all Doors fans can relate to. This band was always so art driven and Morrison's head was full of bizarre thoughts and musings that just blended so beautifully with the music. I love this piece of work and listen to it as much as any other Doors album in my collection. Give it a try on a Saturday night with a nice glass of wine and what ever else opens your mind. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 66.128.251.30 (talk) 23:09, 4 September 2008 (UTC)

Strange Days cover!?[edit]

Who the hell put Strange Days cover on this article?? Could someone change it, please? Moreover, anonymous 66.128.251.30... Who cares about what you think of this record? This is not a review site, thanks. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 87.0.181.80 (talk) 14:26, 12 November 2011 (UTC)
