Love: Forever Changes (Elektra)

Sandy Robertson, Sounds, 1 July 1984

NO SOONER are the words out of my typewriter than the contradictions set in, like cement. The Doors and VU have been bastardised and overexposed, but nay, not Arthur Lee and Love! Don't you believe it: with a memorial tome apparently in the works, WEA re-promote the doggedly Hollywood-based Sixties son's finest piece of invective; Forever Changes rivals Brecht/Weill in its spittle and bite content...and then there's the music.

Total word count of piece: 337
