this record's going to be exactly 40 years old later this year, so those who've heard it, let's love and appreciate it, those who haven't yet, give it a chance and download it RIGHT NOW! :o

personally, i discovered this album only some short time ago, but i fell in love with FC quite quickly. while bands like Beatles, Beach Boys and Kinks were popular and beloved everywhere in that time, this album was in shadows. for some reasons it only became recognisable by critics well later...

 

key tracks:

 

1. "Andmoreagain" - one of the most beatiful songs ever

2. "You Set The Scene" - a perfect lyrical closer!

3. "The Red Telephone"

4. "Alone Again Or"

5. "Maybe The People Would Be The Times Or Between Clark And Hilldale"

 

 

 

It wasn't a hit, but Forever Changes continues to regularly appear on critics' lists of the top ten rock albums of all time, and it had an enormously far-reaching and durable influence that went way beyond chart listings. The best fusion of folk-rock and psychedelia, it features Arthur Lee's trembling vocals, beautiful melodies, haunting orchestral arrangements, and inscrutable but poetic lyrics, all of which sound nearly as fresh and intriguing upon repeated plays. One of rock's most organic, flowing masterpieces, every song has a lingering, shimmering beauty, including the two penned by the band's other talented songwriter/guitarist/singer, Bryan MacLean.

 

5/5

 

P.S. oh! btw i purchased the deluxe edition today :D

Love - Alone Again Or (live)

Yeah, said it's all right

I won't forget

All the times I've waited patiently for you

And you'll do just what you choose to do

And I will be alone again tonight my dear

 

Yeah, I heard a funny thing

Somebody said to me

You know that I could be in love with almost everyone

I think that people are

The greatest fun

And I will be alone again tonight my dear

Love - You Set The Scene (live)

Where are you walking, I’ve seen you walking

Have you been there before?

Walk down your doorsteps, you’ll take some more steps

What did you take them for?

There’s a private in my boat and he wears

Pins instead of medals on his coat

There’s a chicken in my nest and she won’t

Lay until I’ve given her my best

At her request she asks for nothing

You get nothing in return

If you want she brings you water

If you don’t then you will burn

 

You go through changes, it may seem strange

Is this what you’re put here for?

You think you’re happy and you are happy

That’s what you’re happy for

There’s a man who can’t decide if he should

Fight for what his father thinks is right

There are people wearing frowns who’ll screw you up

But they would rather screw you down

At my request I ask for nothing

You get nothing in return

If you’re nice she’ll bring me water

If you’re not then I will burn

 

This is the time and life that I am living

And I’ll face each day with a smile

For the time that I’ve been given’s such a little while

And the things that I must do consist of more than style

There are places that I am going

 

This is the only thing that I am sure of

And that’s all that lives is gonna die

And there’ll always be some people here to wonder why

And for every happy hello, there will be good-bye

There’ll be time for you to put yourself on

 

Everything I’ve seen needs rearranging

And for anyone who thinks it’s strange

Uh, then you should be the first to want to make this change

And for everyone who thinks that life is just a game

Do you like the part you’re playing

 

I see your picture

It’s in the same old frame

We meet again

 

You look so lovely

You with the same old smile

Stay for a while

 

I need you so, oh, oh, oh, oh

And if you take it easy

I’m still teethin’

I wanna love you, but

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

 

This is the time and life that I am living

And I’ll face each day with a smile

For the time that I’ve been given’s such a little while

And the things that I must do consist of more than style

There’ll be time for you to start all over

 

This is the time and this is the time and

It is time, time, time, time, time, time, time, time, time...
