Bee Gees - Trafalgar - Review

critics' view

"How Can You Mend A Broken Heart" kicks things off here - one of the best Bee Gees songs EVER! Jesus, that one's unbeatable. No other hits on here, but the "album tracks" are of such uniform high quality that even without hits, this one's a strong "8". The production on this is probably the nicest of any of the Bee Gees' pre-disco efforts. In fact, I liked the general sound of this album so much that I sprung for the Mobile Fidelity Sound Labs version that's made of SOLID 24KGOLD and thus will last FOREVER, and even when I had a horrible cavity in one of my teeth that desperately needed filling, I refused to let my dentist melt the CD down to make a gold crown, and instead settled for a filling made of mercury-amalgam, which means that when the mercury starts leaking (it will) I will suffer from negative health effects like delusional thinking and debilitating anxiety—but at least I know I'll be able to listen to the glorious title track and "Somebody Stop the Music" and "Don't Wanna Live Inside Myself" for all of eternity, on headphones, in my grave!
