Robin's Reign by Robin Gibb

Label: UMC (Universal Music Catalogue)
Though a commercial flop when released in 1970, Robin's Reign now stands as a particular high point in baroque-tinged art pop, right up there with The Bee Gees' own Odessa and (of course) Scott Walker's Scott 4. With its mix of heavy-handed organ, primitive drum machine, orchestration-as-sonic-collage and cathedral-worthy reverb, the record possesses an utterly unique sound: ghostly, distant, lush, even primitive in places. Reeling from The Bee Gees' (temporary) breakup the year prior, Gibb's quivering high tenor is stained in bitterness, melancholy and longing. Gorgeous stuff for sure.
