Released on 1 November 1967, Forever Changes is the third studio album by Love. It was the final album recorded by the original band lineup; after its completion, Bryan Maclean left the group acrimoniously and the other members were dismissed by leader Arthur Lee. The album saw the group embrace a subtler folk-oriented sound and orchestration, while primary songwriter Lee explored darker themes alluding to mortality and his creeping disillusionment with the 1960s counterculture.

Forever Changes had only moderate success in the album charts when it was first released; it peaked at No. 154 in the US, with a stronger showing in Great Britain, where it reached No. 24 on the UK album chart. In subsequent years, it became recognised as an influential document of 1960s psychedelia and was named among the greatest albums of all time by a variety of publications.

Rolling Stone described Forever Changes as ‘elegant armageddon’ when listing it as No. 40 in the ‘500 Greatest Albums of All Time’, and, placing it in the context of the late ‘60s in another rave review, called it, ‘one of the most distinctive masterpieces in that era of masterpieces.’
