Except for "Nights on Broadway" and "Jive Talkin'", I'm not a enthusiast of the Bee Gees in the disco phase. They put their falsetto voices on and rarely modulated them. The songwriting became dull, and the production metallic and uninteresting. In my opinion.
But I liked a lot of their earlier stuff. "Trafalgar" and "Odessa" in particular. They wrote interesting songs with real melodies, they sang their hearts out, and the production, though lush at times, was appropriate for the material. They were more a ballad group than a rock group---nothing wrong with that. They could be frustratingly inconsistent, but on those two albums they did what they did best and did it very well.
Anybody else feel this way?
