Spirits Having Flown is the eleventh studio album by the Bee Gees, released in September 1979. It was the follow-up to their highly successful Saturday Night Fever album, and it continued the group’s exploration of disco-infused pop music.
The album was a commercial success, reaching number one on the Billboard 200 chart in the United States and the United Kingdom. It also spawned three hit singles, “Tragedy,” “Too Much Heaven,” and “Love You Inside Out.”
Spirits Having Flown is a well-produced album with a sophisticated sound. The Bee Gees’ harmonies are as tight as ever, and Barry Gibb’s falsetto vocals are in top form. The album features a mix of uptempo disco tracks and slower ballads, and it showcases the group’s versatility as songwriters.
