I wanted to write this review for Amazon UK because while this album was slow to take off in the US , the Brits seemed to embrace it much more easily and it is no coincidence that Arthur Lee and Love devoted a lot of tours throughout Britain to perform this album. Whether this album is one of the greatest of all time or not, or sold poorly in the beginning , or ranks with the Beatles best or the Beach Boys or whoever, is of little importance. I believe it is a rock master work and add my opinion with the rest of the enthusiastic reviewers on this site only in hope of encouraging others to listen. It's reputation is enough to make many curious to give it a try. The album is largely acoustic as was much of Love's early recordings , and while Love's lead guitarist John Echols does let loose here and there don't expect anything like what the Jimi Hendrix Experience or Cream were serving up at the time. I believe the albums strength is in the lyrics of Lee and Maclean and the unique way they are delivered. The approach is not verse chorus verse. There is a lot being said on these songs as befits performers who have something to say and want to say it in the normally constrictive confines of a rock and roll album. It doesn't matter if every line is not the most profound statement. Lee was writing about what he knew (alienation ) or what others related to him ( soldiers home from Vietnam telling him blood mixed with mud turns grey in color ). As has been mentioned here, Lee has said he believed this album was " his last words to the planet ". It is a psychedelic album in a sense but that label alone is too limiting. Roger Waters used to get annoyed when Pink Floyd's music was described as being about "outer space"- it was all about "inner space", he said . In the end the best recommendation you can give a recording is the staying power it has. I've listened to this album far too many times to accurately know and I never get tired of it, I'm quite sure I never will.

This one has been on my desert island list since 1967. It is an acoustic/ electric/ mariachi/ flamenco/ psychedelic classic of the highest order. Every moment is glorious and no drugs needed.
A couple of months after my wife died in 2002, Arthur Lee came to Newcastle with the final incarnation of Love - just when I needed him most. I saw the 'Forever Changes' gig in 2003 and in 2004 I took my new (and continuing) love to see Love at Newcastle University. The place was packed with undergraduates and 50-somethings. The kids new all the words!
In his final years Arthur Lee and Love performed brilliantly and he was a contender for the title of 'Coolest Man on the Planet'. Buy both the studio and the live version of this album.
Thank you Arthur Lee wherever you are now.

B. Arthur is a professional guitarist and guitar teacher active in Northumberland UK.

"And if you see Andmoreagain, then you will know Andmoreagain
For you can see you in her eyes
Then you feel your heart beating, bom-bom-bom-bom"

I`m pretty sure that`s what the late Arthur Lee is singing, but I couldn`t begin to tell you what it means, or who or what Andmoreagain is or might be. What`s more, I`m not sure I ever want to know. So many of the lyrics on Forever Changes are elliptical - occasionally two voices even sing different words at the same time, which is a neat trick no other band seems to have since tried - that they remain pleasingly, mystifyingly intriguing.
There aren`t many albums that are unique, in that they sound like nothing else, breaking the mould not only of their time, but for all time. I think of Astral Weeks, Marquee Moon, Trout Mask Replica, `The Band` and one or two of Neil Young`s early ones. Forever Changes is a one-off, it`s the one-off to end them all. Love`s previous album, the brilliant Da Capo, gave little notice of the jaw-dropping wonders to come a mere few months later, and their following albums tended to be something of a letdown (though Four Sail has its moments).
How can anyone adequately describe this music, especially to one who may not have heard it yet (oh lucky listener)? It is mournful mariachi folk... it`s acoustic soul... it`s off the wall eclectic LA rock-folk... Get the picture? No, of course not.
I can`t remember exactly how I felt when I first heard this on its release, at the age of 16 or 17, but after 45 years it still sounds fresh as paint, still unlike anything else. It`s never been something I play too often, but when I`m in the mood for it there`s nothing else that quite fits the bill. Each word, note, phrase, has the weird inevtability of music that must surely have been around - forever.

Barely denting the charts when released in late 1967, Forever Changes has become heralded as an absolute classic and is in the Top 100 (at least!) of any Top Albums poll once cares to mention.
The secret of its continued success is down to several factors, the main ones probably being its excellent songs and beautiful arrangements. Arthur Lee's songs are idiosyncratic, unconventional but memorable pieces, often not formulaic verse-chrous-verse affairs. They are backed by the band - usually by superb intricate acoustic picking with occasional bursts of electric lead - then augmented further by brilliant string and brass arrangements. The result is a sound as big and pioneering as that of other innovative albums of the time such as Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Heart Club Band and Pet Sounds.
A major difference between those LPs and Forever Changes though is the occasional social comment and overall sense of dread in Lee's lyrics. No other album quite captures the mixture of beauty and despair of 1967 in the United States quite like this masterpiece.
All of the songs featured are good though particular highlights for me are the lush Good Humour Man, foreboding Red Telephone and grand finale which is You Set The Scene. The LP's most famous song, the excellent, oft-covered Alone Again Or is one of two songs written by rhythm guitarist Bryan MacLean - all of the others are by the talented Mr Lee.
This remastered and expanded version of Forever Changes includes seven extra tracks and alternative versions. One of the most interesting of these pieces is Wonder People which has a riff similar to Tom Jones' It's Not Unusual.
