All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
There's a certain school of thought that considers Love's Forever Changes to be as great an album as Sgt. Pepper, and it's not that hard to agree, since the Los Angeles band summed up the beautiful hippie vibe of '67 better than Beatles whimsy. Plus, the group turned in a marvelously idiosyncratic album that sums up the feeling of that year perfectly, while feeling tremendously out of time -- a saga of peace, love, and understanding that transcends its time by being so thoroughly of it. Forever Changes is essential listening, whether in its original incarnation or part of Rhino's wonderful double-disc Love Story or the label's deluxe 2001 reissue. The reissue is...

There's a certain school of thought that considers Love's Forever Changes to be as great an album as Sgt. Pepper, and it's not that hard to agree, since the Los Angeles band summed up the beautiful hippie vibe of '67 better than Beatles whimsy. Plus, the group turned in a marvelously idiosyncratic album that sums up the feeling of that year perfectly, while feeling tremendously out of time -- a saga of peace, love, and understanding that transcends its time by being so thoroughly of it. Forever Changes is essential listening, whether in its original incarnation or part of Rhino's wonderful double-disc Love Story or the label's deluxe 2001 reissue. The reissue is augmented by two alternate mixes, an outtake called "Your Mind and We Belong Together" (illuminated by studio breakdowns and chatter), a demo of "Hummingbirds," the outtake "Wonder People (Do I Wonder)," and "Laughing Stock." The bonus tracks are really only interesting to the unconverted, and they couldn't really change the character of an album that's so dense and fascinating on its own that it's impossible to better. Still, these are wonderful additions for the dedicated, and even if they're not necessary, they're welcome. And the fact remains -- anything that brings an audience to the most universally acknowledged underappreciated classic is welcome, even if the basic original album makes a case for its greatness as much as this, and the bonus tracks are simply something for the diehards.
