The Bee Gees' third album is something of a departure, with more of a rocking sound and with the orchestra (apart from a few well-placed harp arpeggios) somewhat less prominent in the sound mix than on their first two LPs. The two hits, "I've Gotta Get a Message to You" and "I Started a Joke," are very much of a piece with their earlier work, but on "Kitty Can," "Indian Gin and Whisky Dry," and "Such a Shame" (the latter written by the group's then lead guitarist, Vince Melouney), among other cuts, they sound much more like a wo. .In 2006, as part of the shift of the group's back catalog to Reprise Records, Idea was reissued in remastered form, with seriously improved sound and expanded to two CDs with a brace of ted outtakes - comprising some of the most fascinating material of their history - initially as part of the collection The Studio Albums 1967-1968.

Many of the lyrics on the album are lame. The ambient "Kilburn Towers" is the only atonement offered, one of the few tracks with palatable vocals and a less wimpy tune. So many melodramatic performances. The over-orchestration, theatrical vocals, and precious melodies finally did them in. 1. Let There Be Love C+2. Kitty Can C+3. In The Summer Of His Years C4.

Idea is a bit of a mess, although the fans are clearly reluctant to admit it. The thing is, it probably needed to be a mess, in part to serve as a catalyst to the magnificent rebirth of Odessa and Trafalgar, and in part due to the internal chaos as the group became a trio. Sort of a premature middle age moment for musicians who languished in similar territory for a number of albums before re-flowering in their maturity (if one can label anything disco-influenced as mature). Only a handful of essential songs, most probably best obtained elsewhere.
