Love Songs Review

by James Christopher Monger

There's no denying the amorous side of the Brothers Gibb, especially when it comes to carefully orchestrated and impeccably performed schmaltz, but an entire disc of it can be a bit much. As the Bee Gees' career progressed, so did its whimsy. Early ballads like "To Love Somebody," "Words," and "First of May" were chamber pop masterpieces that reflected the Bee Gees' love of the Beatles and soul, but their descent into midtempo adult contemporary oblivion becomes more and more painful (not counting "How Deep Is Your Love" and "Too Much Heaven") as this collection nears its end. Also, any Bee Gees compilation called Love Songs better at least have "Massachusetts" or "I've Gotta Get a Message to You," both of which are sadly missing. Go pick up 2001's Their Greatest Hits: The Record instead.
