This album marked was the first Bee Gees album since the death of their brother Andy Gibb in 1988. There was a lot of talk of Andy joining his three brothers in the group and on this particular album. Andy's death does play a role on this album. There are several songs that no doubt are reflections of some of the pain that Barry, Robin, and Maurice feel for their brother. This is by no means a somber collection of songs, but the specter of Andy is clearly seen on here. At first the song "Tears" seemed like a song about a lost love, but after listening to the lyrics, I get the impression this is spun more as a tribute to Andy with such lines as "Heaven only knows how much I'm missing you", "You're Still Inside and I'm Not Ashamed", and "I Can't Forget Your Face, I Call Your Name". Another song that is a reminder of Andy is "Wish You Were Here".Read more ›
Stand out tracks for me would be,"one","ordinary lives","wish u were here","house of shame" and the extra track"wing and a prayer".Probably my BEST one is "wish you were here".This song always zapps me cos,it sounds so intimate and romantic.It's got alot of personal attached feelings obliquely relating to my own life.....The words go "Your living your life in somebody else's heart,when love is as strong as oceans are far apart....how I wish U were here...drying these tears I cry...." This is truly a magnificent song.I love the keyboards...just soothing and comforting to a broken or aching heart.You'll love this one.
Next I loved "house of shame".Aww...the starting part is spectacular and attractive.Again beautiful keyboards!I makes my very soul soar into the sky....beautifully done.Again the lyrics come straight from the heart as the previous track.It's incredible how they match their music to suit the mood of the song.Most artists are not having that point in mind...especially the modern ones.Shame on bands like Backstreet boys and all the others.They are totally crap!!!Bee Gees are the GREATEST!!!If only today's artists would sit up and listen to such legends.....they would gain something.I feel Bee Gees music appeals greatly to all age groups even the very elderly.They sing terrific dance numbers too,but the songs are very tolerable.Some artists are too noisy and bombastic....Read more ›

What can I say, it's the Bee Gees and they are one of the top 5 acts of all time. Exceptional writing by the brothers Gibb and noone has such distinctive harmonies.Published 8 months ago by Kelly D. Bryson
They left the disco era behind and got back to their original sound with a few updates for the 80's. Geniuses all of them.Published on Dec 12 2012 by Charlotte Markowski
When I ordered this CD, I was familiar with 2 or 3 songs on it, which I thought were very good, and I wanted them for my library. Read morePublished on Aug. 8 2012 by Bill W.
One is the best number to describe this album. The Bee Gees lost their younger brother, Andy, had been very painful, but they didn't give up. Read morePublished on July 6 2004 by Trombonist
