It is unclear whether the Bee Gees truly wanted to completely break away from their disco sound in this 1981 album or whether it was done to fulfill their last album contract with RSO records. Each Gibb stakes out a portion of the album with mediocre results. However, half the songs are good enough to warrant seeking this CD out. The first single, "Living Eyes", which barely charted is a wondrous ballad with nice guitar work. "He's A Liar", a song that raises more questions than it answers is a great, out of step, rock and roll melee. "Paradise" and "Don't Fall In Love With Me" are two more great harmonizing ballads that make the first side listenable. The upbeat "Cryin' Every day" also pushes the synthesizer/drum beat envelope. It's not "Spirits Having Flown", but maybe that was the whole point.
