iTunes Review

Robbie’s eighth album has been cast as a stabilizing exercise after the entertaining oddness of 2006’s Rudebox. True, symphonic ballad “Morning Sun” and Françoise Hardy re-boot “You Know Me” sound like imperial period Robbie (i.e. great ) but there’s pleasing adventure here too. On “Difficult For Weirdoes”’ deadpan disco, and “Bodies”’ addictive mix of choral chanting, Ian Brown-style funk-rock and soaring choruses, Robbie finds a winning balance between robust pop and playful spirit.

Customer Reviews

Highly Underrated!

I know this review is about 4 years late, but I feel it's important to mention just how wonderful this album is. With every listen, I discover yet another standout track. Aside from the obvious highlights "Morning Sun" and "Bodies", there are many more moments here to like.

Listen to "You Know Me", "Do You Mind", "Last Days of Disco" (sounds very much like a Yazoo track), "Deceptacon", "Starstruck" and "Superblind", all worthy of 4 stars or more.

Overall, very enjoyable. This has quickly become my second favorite Robbie Williams album, second only to "Escapology".

Biography

Born: February 13, 1974 in Tunstall, Stoke-on-Trent, Staffor

Genre: Pop

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

Out of all the members of Take That, Robbie Williams never really seemed to fit in. Roguishly handsome where his bandmates were merely cute, Williams was tougher and sexier than the rest, which made him more distinctive. He also fought regularly with the other members and their management, primarily because he was occasionally averse to being so heavily packaged. So it didn't come as a surprise that he was the first to leave the band, departing early in the summer of 1995 to pursue a solo career...
