  • Producers: Robin, Barry & Maurice Gibb, Peter John Vettese.
  • This Australian edition includes two bonus tracks.
  • Recording information: Area 21; Middle Ear Studios.
  • After years of high-gloss production, this album represents the Bee Gees' attempt to return to their roots; simple, harmony-based pop tunes recorded in a straightforward manner. Accordingly, many of the songs here are based around Maurice and Barry Gibb's own acoustic guitar strumming, and of course the trio's distinctive vocal blend. Nevertheless, this is hardly lo-fi stuff. Sophisticated keyboard and electric guitar textures and programmed beats are not in short supply; the roots retrenchment is more a mindset than an arrangement tactic.
  • While most of the tunes here seem to fall into the adult pop mode the group began mining in its post-disco phase, "She Keeps on Coming" is a rockabilly-tinged number that wouldn't have sounded out of place on a Traveling Wilburys album, "Technicolor Dreams" is a quaint, vaudevillian song that harks back to the band's quirky baroque pop days, and "The Extra Mile" recalls the Bee Gees' mid-'70s soul balladry. Stylistically, THIS IS WHERE I CAME IN is more of a look over the shoulder than a giant leap backwards.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (6/7/01, p.112) - 3 stars out of 5 - "...They winningly assume the mantle of boy-band elder statesmen. Each Gibb stakes out a portion od the album for his own....powering through terrific ballads..."

Q (5/01, p.102) - 3 stars out of 5 - "...Those breathless falsetto harmonies retain their doo-wop edge, the compelling title track has a pared-down, beat-driven, almost Beatles-ish quality..."

Mojo (Publisher) (5/01, p.114) - "...Fromthe mastercraftsmanly pop-structure of the title track opener to the final big and sprauncy Euro-disco anthem that is 'Promise The Earth,' everything is harmonious, hooky and comfortingly cliched, the complete Bee Gees bee's knees..."
