Their finest hour.

"Well 'England Expects' doesn't really fit as a title. For many years my favourite Bee Gees recording was 'Life in a tin can' until the age of CD and re-release came upon us and I discovered this one. Bill Shepherd's accompaniment on this record make it one of the most finely orchestrated pop records made in my opinion (note I say pop and not rock). The song writing finds the Bee Gees in true introspective pre-disco mode, moody and reflective. Whereas their previous album '2 years on' seems to be little more than a collection of solo songs written while the brothers were apart this album could be said to be the true sequel to Odessa, being a far more cohesive work. Critics and fans vary on this record mainly because it is a sit down and listen as opposed to get up and dance Bee Gees record but it is probably their finest of their 'arty' period - from their first album to Mr Natural - so if you like that Bee Gees era this album comes highly recomended."

"...with "Trafalgar", the bee gees have answered the eternal question...who's better...bee gees or beatles...

now, not taking anything away from the beatles, but this album is so full of what came before and after, that it is the apex of what made them so great...

and yes...'how can you mend a broken heart' is still a brilliant song, but why has nobody mentioned my all-time favorite gibb song, "the greatest man in the world'...

if you don't agree with me, do me a favor...listen to it again...listen to the subtlty in the rips your heart out...

it was probably just overshadowed by 'how can you mend...', and, because of that, has never appeared on any compilations to keep it alive...

so instead, go back and find out for yourself what everybody won't be disappointed..."
