  • However, the song has an interesting tone because of the very minimal instrumentation with the primary instrument being a piano, I wouldn’t exactly say it has a jazz feel but it’s certainly not the typical rock sound associated with The Doors
  • A guitar solo comes in at around a minute and a half into the song which has a very melodic sound and it’s on the clean channel which further gives the song somewhat of a jazzy feel, although I’m not exactly sure that would be the best description of the track
  • To be honest I found the track to be a little bit boring as it never really seemed to go anywhere, and by the time it ended I didn’t feel it really went anywhere either
  • Morrison’s voice is certainly a positive of the track and I like the somewhat jazzy feel the music itself gives, but overall it’s just sort of an average song in my opinion, not among The Doors’ best
  • The track has a nice sound change apart from the typical sound of The Doors but it’s nothing amazing

      Yes, The River Knows is a song by The Doors which appears on their album Waiting For The Sun. The song starts up with Morrison singing right away accompanied by a piano and a slight bass line.

      Morrison has an excellent vocal tone on the track as he sounds extremely powerful in his voice and his melody isn’t all that bad either.

      The thing I’m seeing though is that the music seems sort of empty for him to


      be singing over.

        The track really doesn’t have a set structure as the few sets of the lyrics that are on this track just sort of repeat in no particular order so the track is certainly not in any traditional structure and it certainly doesn’t have the traditional sound of The Doors either.

        To be honest I found the track to be a little

        bit boring as it never really seemed to go anywhere, and by the time it ended I didn’t feel it really went anywhere either.
