5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best records ever, 9 May 2011
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Forever Changes (MP3 Download)
This is one of the best albums I have ever heard. I first heard it back in the 70s when I was 17 when I went out and bought the LP on the strength of what I had read about it. It was not easy to find in the UK back then and I was certainly not disappointed. I saw Arthur Lee do the whole thing live in London just before he died, which was brilliant and made up for me not going to see him for some reason in 1974 when he played at a venue a bus ride away from where I lived at the time.

I have started listening to Forever Changes again recently and it sounds better than ever. Every song is brilliant, the arrangements are beautiful and I appreciate the menace in lyrics more now than when I was a teenager. I have tried to convert my own teenagers to it but no joy so far.

I have only heard two other Love albums in full - Da Capo and Four Sale. They are both good, but to me the ten tracks on Forever Changes are all better than anything else I have heard by them, although 7 and 7 Is, the Castle and Orange Skies in particular from Da Capo come close.I have never really found out why Arthur broke up the band after Forever Changes apart from vague stories about drugs and heavy scenes. I guess they were never going to be able to top Forever Changes.
