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

783. Trafalgar – The Bee Gees

Brief Background: Trafalgar was recorded throughout the first 1/3 of 1971 and released in September of the same year. The songs were written individually and then brought into the studio by the Brothers Gibb.

What I think: 

Do you like cheesy love songs? How about over done string arrangements? Yes, well this is the album for you. It’s chock full of both the whole way through.

Me, not my thing so it was a sort of nightmare. I will say two nice things about it though. 1. The song “When I Do” is actually pretty good. 2. Remember how I wrote that I didn’t believe in Rod Stewart’s sincerity on Gasoline Alley? Well I may not like this, but I do feel they are being sincere. It really has the feeling of a divorce album or that somebody romantically linked with one of them passed away.

Do I agree or disagree with the writers as to this being an album you must listen to? Two nice things to say does not equal a recommendation.
