1001 Albums You Must Hear (and Blog about) Before You Die

My attempt to blog all of the entries from the book 1001 Albums to Hear Before You Die

847. Odessa – Bee Gees

 

Brief Background: Odessa was recorded throughout the second half of 1968 and was released in May of 1969. The recording was a time of turmoil for the band who essentially broke up for a time after its release.

What I think: To start this on a positive note, Bee Gees do have very interesting and great voices. That being said, this album just wasn’t doing it for me. It is, in fact, one of the few albums in this project (this is #155) that has given me a headache when listening to it. That is not helped by the fact that it is a double album and is also a concept album (though, it seems, without a concept). Interestingly enough the sound of the band on these recordings is reminiscent of some of the folky/twee indie rock that has been released in the past five years.

Do I agree or disagree with the writers as to this being an album you must listen to? Cut it! We can surely find something better for this spot!

Today I started new position as an Academic Librarian at Normandale Community College. Half of my time will be spent on reference and the other half on classroom instruction.  I'm very excited to utilize the skills I have, but more importantly learn a zillion new things about librarianship!
