Forever Changes

Some people call this the best album of the sixties. Most people (of those that know that such a band called "Love" ever existed) call this one of the greatest albums of all time. Until rather recently this band was completely forgotten but all of a sudden it arose to popularity (just like the Zombies did). Of course, this is a record that could have come out only in the summer of love - it has warm guitar sounds, stylistically "Love" is more similar to Beach Boys than to Beatles. Lyrical subjects are quite usual for 1967 - the album opener even has the line "I could love almost everyone", the songs are pretty orchestrated. Highlights include "The Daily Planet", "Live and let live" and "You Set the Scene". Music like that doesn`t happen anymore, and it`s sad.
