The late-'70s was an interesting time to be a Bee Gee. The trio had experienced a rebirth as disco kings via SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER even though their music at the time was closer to the Spinners than to Donna Summer. By 1979, disco's popularity had begun to wane, but this didn't affect the Gibb's much, since they were primarily just R&B/pop artists to begin with. On SPIRITS, the Bee Gees blend their Aussie take on Philly Soul (the transcendent "Too Much Heaven," the suggestive "Love You Inside Out") with contemporary pop ("Tragedy") and that unique sound that is theirs alone (the serene, glowing title track). The brothers' trademark harmonies and irresistible pop hooks were in evidence throughout, making SPIRITS HAVING FLOWN essential for those enamored of mid-period Bee Gees or R&B-flavored '70s pop.

Rating 3.0 INSIDE OUT Music Lover: from GARY, IN US -- July, 13, 2008

Hard to rate this album above 3 stars; not enough musical persuasion in the content.
However, the songs on this album that rate at 3 stars are
the reason the album as a whole is at least up to almost the 3 star mark. I first heard LOVE YOU INSIDE OUT in 1979. It's the one 5-star song on the album.
Its rhythm, its melody, its lyrics--the overall drive of its combined elements are so well crafted and projected that the song creates a unique emotional space unmatched by some of the BEE GEES best material. The best music creates its own space or atmosphere apart from even its composer's signature work. As with any fine musical work, unless this song is listened to carefully its actual content will be missed and its emotive potential will be lost on both the ear and the heart.
The song attaches to the life experiences within its range and pulls a listener in by the force of its related gravity.
A true 3-D emotional experience.
