    Before Hanson and the boy bands there was the Bee Gees, and “This Is Where I Came In” shows us where the newer models got their ideas from. Although the brothers Gibb are still loathed in some circles, I have always been a biased fan of their music and harmonies. “This Is Where I Came In” certainly has some great harmonies like “Sacred Trust”, “Deja Vu”, “Walking On Air”, “Embrace” and the title track. I found this cd more catchy than 1997′s “Still Waters”, and found the Bee Gees incorporating their past achievements with new ideas. For example, “Loose Talk Cost Lives” reminded me of “How Deep Is Your Love”, “This Is Where I Came In” reminded me of “New York Mining Disaster”, and “Technicolor Dreams” was a step in a completely unexplored direction–ragtime jazz. I bought the UK import with the two extra tracks: “Just In Case” and “Promise The Earth”–both worth having. There were even a couple of rockers this time out with “She Keeps On Coming” and “Voice In The Wilderness”. It seems there is something for everyone on “This Is Where I Came In”. Once again, I suspect that the record company and the public will overlook this solid recording because it’s the Bee Gees and because most people who listen to popular music think that musicians over 50 have lost their edge, and therefore, are no longer viable. I disagree, and it’s a shame that the music made on this disc will receive little exposure or acknowledgement. As a fan of the Bee Gees, I expect “This Is Where I Came In” to suffer the same fate as 1993′s “Size Isn’t Everything”, 1991′s “High Civilization”, 1989′s “One”, 1987′s “ESP” and 1981′s “Living Eyes”. If you are a fan, “This Is Where I Came In” is worth owning, and if you are just finding out about the Bee Gees it’s worth looking into.

    Although I didn’t experience the instant fascination with this album that I have with previous ones, it is truly delightful. Just the fact that the brothers have produced yet another album, with more new ideas, enhanced with hints of the past, is quite amazing. Not only do they thrill us with new sounds, but there is a continuity which reflects their past works that is sure to please every devoted Bee Gee fan. The whimsy of “This is Where I Came In” is such a familiar quality of each album. The melody of “Wedding Song” is so reminiscent of the beautiful song “Stay Alone” of “Now Voyager”. The typical sensitivity and gentleness that the brothers frequently express so profoundly in their work is expressed once again in the spectacular “Just in Case”. “She Keeps on Coming” reminds us of the very early days in the Bee Gees’ careers. And I dare anyone to try NOT singing along with the catchy “Sacred Trust”. Although I don’t care for “Technicolor Dreams” it is definitely a new sound for our very talented trio. If this incredible showcase of talent is not enough for you, don’t forget the wonderful enhancements of the CD and the beautiful photographs of the lyric booklet. Enjoy!
