It is not surprising and perhaps won’t be the last time that a musical artist will attempt to produce an album that is fashion like a musical play.  Pink Floyd did it with “Another Brick On The Wall.”  With artist whose temper is like an autistic child, surely Robbie Williams will focus his energy on something that will gain him musical respect not only among his peers and musical fans but also with music critics.  In other words, this album is probably is ticket to musical integrity the way Madonna did with “Like A Prayer” album.

In the song “Love My Life,” he sung about him being powerful, beautiful, wonderful, magical, and born free.  Yes, he might be talking about the whole album.  The album is beautiful in a sense that it is loaded with great hooks and melodies.  Yes, some songs may sound like Take That fossil but songs like “Motherfucker” and “Sensitive” are great reminders on his 90’s roots. But there are songs like “David’s Song” which is basically Robbie at his best doing ballads.

The album is wonderful in a sense that he did not succumb to musical clichés.  For example, with a song titled “Bruce Lee,” listeners will assume that it will have oriental flavors.  Instead, the song is fashioned like a Dennis de Young in vocals while he was still with Styx.

The album is powerful as it shows his powerful talents doing powerful songs like “Pretty Woman,” “The Heavy Entertainment Song,” “Party Like Russian,” and “Time On Earth.”

It is also a humane album as there are songs which affect you emotionally like the way he did with earlier songs like “Angel.”  In this album, you have “When You Want To Know” and “Marry Me.”

As a whole the album deserve many repeat listening and thus I rate this record 3.5 stars.


1 stars = Ignore it

2 stars = risk it

3 stars = borrow or buy it

4 stars = buy it and keep it

5 stars = buy, keep, and treasure it
