Mojo: The 100 Greatest Albums Ever Made 11/100 - (1995)


45th Anniversary Edition of the Landmark Psychedelic Masterpiece!

The third and final album by the original Love lineup, Forever Changes regularly draws epic praise.  Rolling Stone described it as "elegant armageddon" when listing it as #40 in the "500 Greatest Albums of All Time", and, placing it in the context of the late '60s in another rave review, called it, "one of the most distinctive masterpieces in that era of masterpieces."  A landmark work that's the L.A.-based psychedelic folk-rock pioneers' most fully realized studio effort, it was produced by band co-founder/frontman Arthur Lee and The Doors' engineer/producer Bruce Botnick, and released by Elektra in early '68.  Highlights include "Alone Again Or', "Andmoreagain", "The Red Telephone", and "Live and Let Live".

Years after it's release, Forever Changes, Love's masterpiece, became recognized as one of the finest and most haunting albums to come out of the Summer of Love.

"When I did that album," singer Arthur Lee said, "I thought I was going to die at that particular time, so those were my last words." Lee, who died of cancer in 2006, was still performing this album live well into the '00s. And for good reason: The third record by his ...L.A. band is wild and funny and totally pioneering: folk rock turned into elegant Armageddon with the symphonic sweep and mariachi-brass drama of "Alone Again Or" and "You Set the Scene"..." - rollingstone.com

"The psychedelic cowboys of Love became famous for their dark, poetic L.A. folk rock. But 'Alone Again Or,' the opening track on the band's masterwork, Forever Changes, was written and partly sung by guitarist MacLean — who later left the band to join a Christian ministry — as a tribute to his mother's flamenco dancing. The final take is a decidedly trippy swirl of strings, horns and Spanish-style acoustic guitars." - Rolling Stone

"More than "Sgt. Peppers..." or any album from that era, Forever Changes doesn't just "hold up," it gains stature with every play. It's a record that weaves its magic every listen. You can play it, be mesmerized, and then immediately play it again and be equally mesmerized all over again as new facets take hold... I'm too busy luxuriating in the reissue as it exists. The forty five year old tape has lost just a bit of presence but overall this reissue is a 100% success.I cannot recommend an album more highly and with more enthusiasm. How many albums can you call an adult life-long musical companion?" - Michael Fremer. www.analogplanet.com, Music 11/10, Sound 10/10!
