It sounds like a perfect album for the christmas time - jazz and easy listening and chill.
Nobody should expect Blackstar from Barry Gibb, because this artist has already presented everything he had to present and such albums serve to remind himself that he is still alive and gives advice.

It's not a very good album, but you can hear that it still has that voice.
It is possible that if his brothers were still alive, they would have decided on a "more difficult" album.

Most of the songs on this project sound the same. They're almost all formulaic, which takes a lot of the enjoyment out of the songs for me. I do like a couple of songs, however. If the project varied the style even just slightly, it would be better. Also, after a while, Barry Gibb's ardent singing becomes irritating, or at least boring, after 12 tracks.

Barry Gibb commits here the worst crime in showbussiness: be overshadowed by your guests, that steal the show easily. It's hard to not talk about his voice as well, where most of the time you can notice how tired it got. Well, get old is a bitch, and it's not his fault indeed. Said it all, the album showcases how rich and timeless are the Bee Gees songs, and they are here for all the eternity, in all its glory.

I was really curious about this record, especially since the feature list was a hodge-podge of artists I really like and artists I almost never listen to. Ultimately, I didn’t like this as much as I was hoping to; Gibb’s vocal style simply doesn’t fit these organic country arrangements at all in my opinion, even if the songwriting is pretty good.
