Ten essential albums of the 1960s
5. Love - Forever Changes
Recorded in only 64 hours, Love's Forever Changes is the ultimate psychedelic experience in musical form. Orchestrally fragrant, lyrically surreal, instrumentally poignant, the album's youthful beauty is -- similar to any acid trip -- augmented by a buried anxiety and fear of the future. Drug addiction and a lack of commercial success would destroy the band shortly after Forever Changes -- only their second album -- turning Love and their two excellent LP's into a forgotten time capsule, only to be rediscovered by hipsters like Wes Anderson, who featured the song "Alone Again Or" in his debut film, Bottle Rocket.
