Classic Album

This is an important album and an absolute classic, that you may have never heard of. Like Oddesy and Oracle by the Zombies, Forever Changes by Love is an under the radar bell weather album that remains as important and relevant musicaly and lyrically today as they did when they hit the scene in the late 1960's. They simply do not make them like they used to but music is timeless so enjoy!

A True Classic That Is Timeless

This album is an absolute classic by a band that was at the height of its creative powers, led by the mercurial Arthur Lee. I’m shocked and disappointed that it has no iTunes summary/overview and only one other review at this time, given the fact that it belongs among the greatest pop or rock albums of all time. Don’t just take my word for it. NME ranked it #6 all-time; Rolling Stone ranked it #40 in the top 500 of all time; Mojo ranked it the 2nd greatest psychedelic album (though calling it psychedelic is a silly misnomer) and later #11 best album overall. In any case, the album consists of a set of beautifully written, flawlessly performed, and deeply affecting songs, many of them with lush strings added. Arthur Lee and the band, including Bryan MacLean who wrote some of the best songs to complement Lee’s work, create a diverse body of songs with melancholy, troubling, challenging lyrics and moods that still have the same compelling sentiments and timeless quality today, as if they were just produced in 2018. At the time, the album’s mostly acoustic instrumentation and softer sound felt a bit out of keeping with the band’s previous work and the prevailing musical landscape. The music was, in many ways, ahead of its time but has been cited by many musicians since then as a major inspiration. I highly recommend it to anyone who appreciates great music that transcends the easy labels of pop, rock and other genres as it delivers an emotional charge through lyrics that combine political and social commentary as well as deeply personal sentiments.

Masterpiece

Forever Changes is the third studio album by the American Psychedelic rock band Love. It was released by Elektra Records in November 1967 and would be the final album by the original band members. Forever Changes failed to achieve commercial success when it was first released in 1967, but it has since become recognized as one of the greatest albums ever made, ranking 40th on Rolling Stone magazine's list of The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time, The album was also included in Robert Christgau's "Basic Record Library" of 1950s and 1960s recordings, published in Christgau's Record Guide: Rock Albums of the Seventies...
