I generally prefer vocal melodies that deviate from chord progressions but you're right, if the chord progressions are interesting (which Forever Changes' definitely are), it becomes silly to dismiss a song for that reason. ("The Red Telephone" does this and it's one of my favorite songs). The Beatles themselves did this regularly, especially on the early records ("If I Fell" is a good example, though the harmony definitely helps and Love never really used harmonies).
