Children of the World (1976) dominated the airwaves with its smash hit single, “You Should be Dancing.” Critic Joe McEwen of Rolling Stone called the song “an impossibly propulsive track, whose only rival in the genre is KC’s ‘Get Down Tonight.'” “You Should be Dancing” is the first number on this 10-track album, which the Bee Gees recorded at Criteria Studios in Miami, where they crafted their previous album, Main Course. A notable difference is that Children of the World was produced by The Bee Gees, Karl Richardson and Albhy Galuten. The result is an immensely upbeat and listenable album that Bruce Eder of All Music praised as one of the “most enjoyably light-hearted album in the group’s history.” Other singles include the ballad “Love so Right,” and the provocative “Boogie Child.” “The Way It Was” is a rich piano-driven ballad reminiscent of earlier albums, while title track “Children of the World” switches between the vocal harmonies the brothers are known for and flourishes of synth-heavy pop.
