Robin Gibb - Robin's Reign
The Bee Gees broke up briefly in the late '60's over a brotherly spat about whose song deserved to be the next flop single for the band. Barry won, Robin left, and we got Robin's Reign.
For those of you who don't follow the Bee Gees very closely, Robin is the one with the overdone vibrato voice. Think I Started a Joke, or Holiday. Now picture an entire album of this. With orchestrations.
Still here? Good, you're my kind of reader. Because you realize that sometimes the best entertainment requires a little pain.
This is the kind of record that will clear a room as fast as any modern classical noise record could. And your friends will make fun of you for listening to it. But they won't get that each one of these overblown catewauling laments is a genius level pop nugget. So fuck 'em.
If you like this, leave a note, and I'll consider posting the unreleased second, and even *more* overblown Robin record.
