In March of 1988, the Bee Gees lost a part of themselves in the death of their little brother, Andy. Heartbroken by his passing and craving success that was refused from them in 1987's, "ESP", the Bee Gees threw themselves into their work. Out of what was considered one of the darkest and most emotional periods that the brothers had ever experienced, came some of the most heartfelt and emotional music that the trio has ever released. Never had the Bee Gees' music been so deeply felt by the fans and the public in general. A maturity out of grievance appeared for the first time with the album, "One", and the longing for Andy to still be alive is apparent in songs like, "Tears" and "Wish You Were Here". Not only does this album showcase some of the best music written by the brothers, and some of the finest vocal performances, it contains the title track, "One", which propelled the Bee Gees onto the charts in America for the first time in almost ten years. The brothers' determination paid off when "One" became their first top ten hit in America since 1979. Despite this achievement, American Radio would soon forget the Bee Gees again until 1997. "One" is my favorite Bee Gees album from the 80's, and one of my favorites of all time. A lot of heartbreak and emotion went into this album, and the outcome is incredible. Fantastic effort from Barry, Maurice and Robin!!
