That rare breed. An album which actually lives up to and, almost certainly, exceeds the hype that surrounds it. There is so much going on in the record, so many surprises and exciting turns that it's difficult to know where to start. The instrumentation is superb. Not only the way they are played but the choice of instrument. There are some great melodies and wonderfully atmospheric chord sequences. My favourite track is the impossible-to-remember-it's name "Maybe The People Would Be The Times Or Between Clark and Hilldale," though "Alone Again Or" "Old Man" and "You Set The Scene" are not far behind. I love the guitar playing throughout but Ken Forssi's bass and Michael Stuart's percussion contribute massively also. Then there's the use of brass, which completes the wonderful musical fabric. Whenever I've played this album to people, they ask what it is and are invariably instant converts. Just excellent!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Bona Fida Masterpiece 12 Nov 2009
Format:Audio CD
Truly brilliant album that lives fully up to the hype around it, it starts of with the splendiforous slice of mariachi horned glory that is Alone Again Or and goes from strength to strength: following up with the almost-as-good This House is Not a Motel, which articulates perfectly Arthur Lee's (God Rest his Soul) sense of unease with flower power and the summer of love and proves remarkably prescient given the events at Altamont just a few years later and the paranoid nightmare that became of the 60's lovefest. Another highlight in the album is the ridiculously titled, "And Maybe the People Would be the Times or Between Clark and Hilldale," which, inspite of the frankly awful name, is a brilliantly melodic song with a brilliant vocal and an unnervingly happy tone. Bummer in the Summer is the other more famous song, but really naming highlights is futile because the whole album is a highlight, richly orchestrated and beautifully performed, all of which belies the dark themes present in what is, with the benefit of hindsight, a direly prescient warning of the dangers of the whole, hippie movement. Aside from all that, though, it's just really, really good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quite Simply: The best album ever made! 1 Dec 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
It's always refreshing to find that the favourite album from your teens has withstood the test of time. Love, along with the Doors, were at the forefront of the West coast sound of the late sixties but didn't find the latters commercial success. Don't expect an album of hippie ideology. Find instead lush melodies, blistering rock guitar, beautiful memorable songs, strong lyrics and an album that sounds as fresh and relevant as it did in 1969. Still guaranteed to raise the hairs on the neck. Today you can hear echoes of this album in such work as that by the Manic Street Preachers and others. A beautiful, timeless classic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Like Nothing Else! 31 May 2011
By Rob C.
Format:Audio CD
I've had this wonderful record in my life for nearly thirty years and i still regard it as the best album i've ever heard. It's such a timeless recording and still has a mesmerising effect on me even after thousands of listens. There's no point, i dont think, in mentioning any particular tracks, the album must be taken as a whole to fully have that rollercoaster ride of emotions. It's almost impossible to categorize the sound on this album and all i can say is i would recommend Forever Changes to anyone who loves real music. God bless Arthur Lee!

5.0 out of 5 stars the best LOVE album in the world... ever! 25 May 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Previously issued as a remastered (1CD) in 2001, FOREVER CHANGES came with bonus tracks: "Your Mind And We Belong Together"/"Laughing Stock" single, plus a few nice outtakes & a demo.

But we always knew there was more stuff out there (no pun intended), thanks to THE LAST WALL OF THE CASTLE (CD), also released in 2001, which boasted alternate mixes of "A House Is Not A Motel" and "The Red Telephone" (edited).

Well now it appears we've got the lot in the form of this superb 2CD Collectors Edition, long overdue for a work of this stature.

CD 1 contains the original album mix in all its glory. Again remastered, a marginal upgrade on 2001, it benefits by standing alone, providing a more authentic listening experience for those of us who appreciate silence following the final track.

Of greater interest however is CD 2, which is choc-a-bloc full of different mixes, outtakes, demos, etc, and opens with a complete alternate mix of the album. Since 1968, I have been listening regularly to FOREVER CHANGES and can confirm that there are a multitude of differences in these alternate mixes, many counted in by Lee. Most noticeably different are the manic guitar parts on "A House Is Not A Motel" and "Live And Let Live". There are also several vocal and production variations on tracks like "You Set The Scene" (previously released) and "The Red Telephone".

Incidentally, the aforementioned track is often misquoted as containing the line: "We're all normal AND we want our freedom". In fact Lee says: "We're all normal WHEN we want our freedom". Whether Lee himself is deliberately misquoting from Peter Brook's "Marat/Sade" play or not doesn't really matter, but read this way it adds an even creepier slant to the sinister atmosphere surrounding this wonderful piece.

5.0 out of 5 stars Possibly the greatest record ever 19 Jan 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Although it was made 3 years before I was born, this is a record so rich I feel like I am living it. you don't listen to this record you become part of it, the purest trip ever. This is truly a landmark album, encapsualting the summer of love in its grooves but sowing the seeds of the darkness to follow, like a sweet sounding Siren you know is dangerous but just can't resist.
"Alone Again Or", on the surface pure pop whimsy, but underscored with a dark beauty that flavours the entire album. Frequemtly soaring, as on "And More Again", but always underpinned by the nagging portent of imminent doom, perhaps Lee sensing his own future problems or those of the world in general. Throughout the lyrics are distant, teasing but always seem to make perfect sense no matter how vague, providing surprisingly firm footholds in the ethereal soundscape created.....
Musically exemplary, horns, strings, each contributing to the overall trip, culminating in the masterful "You Set The Scene"
