High Civilization Review

by William Ruhlmann

A misstep. the Bee Gees seem to have felt that their comeback completed by the Top Ten success of "One." It was time to go really contemporary and take on, oh, say, Prince, on High Civilization. Wrong. The techno-rock sounds silly with those near-Chipmunks harmonies, and it's all overdone. You can't really blame a band that has had recurring success by faithfully following contemporary pop trends for trying it, but you can blame them for failing.
