Love "Forever Changes" (1967)

Forever Changes is an interesting example of canon creation.  When I was growing up, listening to classic rock, Love were not in the mix.  I mean at all.  Yet in the last 20 years or so, critical acclaim for this album has snowballed, & it is firmly in the canon!  There's even a 33 and a third book about it!
I think that it represents the more flowery side of the Nuggets bands.  In many ways this record sounds like all the Nuggets songs combined into one album.
Unfortunately, personally I find it hard to connect with on any sort of emotional level.  It remains of interest on a purely intellectual level.
