One of the first albums to successfully marry folk and psychedelia, 'Forever Changes' seems destined to be the one album that Love will be remembered for. Just by lending an ear to the first three tracks the evidence that this is a landmark album is strong indeed; first up is the rousing, uplifting 'Alone Again Or', then the crazy, screaming guitars which climax 'A House Is Not A Home' with 'Andmoreagain' to follow, the best of quite a few lovely, wistful acoustic numbers; 'The Red Telephone' being another fine example. It's the chilling simplicity of the sparer tracks which give the album that aura of Nick Drake-like time-capsuled magic. Looking further into the album's delights the melodic shifts in 'You Set The Scene' and 'Maybe The People Would Be The Times Or Between Clark And Hilldale' bear the hallmark of clever songwriting. The extra tracks on this remaster also have their moments, none more so than the delightful throaway pop of 'Wonder People (I Do Wonder)' (recorded in the album sessions but not released originally) but including eight full minutes of tracking sessions for 'Your Mind And We Belong Together' is something that will be surely be skipped through on future listens by even the most ardent of fans. That aside this reissue serves to remind us that 1968 maybe was the summer of Love after all.
