Robbie Williams… I knew his songs all the way from my primary school. We sang “Angels” in english language class and probably it was first song I understood in hundred percent. Pretty memorable. But I never thought, that Robbie has such an amazing voice and will influence me in such a way in my “more” adult life.
I started to listening his music for real in my first work, in Redknee company. Suddenly it became my favourite artist, I listened “The best of” once a day for about month… Even The Killers with charismatic Brandon Flowers couldn’t top it.
“Even The Killers?” – asked tall girl. – “You loved them! Remember when that girl dumped you and you sang Just another girl all the time…?”
Erm… shut up, or I don’t let you stick it to my blog so hard… that didn’t happened.
“Swing both ways” became my favourite album. With all those music styles and fantastic lyrics I sang it over and over. But lately I discovered on Spotify “Under the radar”. That was a thrill.
“Bully” – that one catch me by my balls. Never heard anything like this. Awesome mix of effects and brave lyrics. It almost makes me want to go and fight anybody anywhere. Pure energy. Pure man power. And it’s first track… just to tease me. Just to say “Hey, you’re in love with this and it’s just beginning, my little bitch!”.
“H.E.S.” – one of those easy going songs, which makes you feel better. Although it’s rough truth about world we live in. About “world of lies”.
“The Edge” – well… probably song of every man out there. Who doesn’t follow his desire, doesn’t make mistakes he regret, doesn’t fight in his rebel days? Everybody has something to say about it. And this lyrics are about watching it all from new perspective. From perspective of a man, who found his place in world, next to a woman. I’m still not in this point, I’m still looking for this in my life.
I had to lose myself for years to find this
Mistook the cruelty and abuse for kindness
“National Treasure” – still curious who’s mr. Jones. Song is nice and catchy. Like almost all in this album. It’s got that unique mystery, cause lyrics makes it impossible to guess who Robbie is singing about.
“Super Tony” – one of the most kind and light drug songs! I guess Tony is Tony Montana, famous Scarface, the character I adore.
“Bullet” – more classy song. Remind me of the… song in which girl died and Robbie’s left with her photo (“The Postacard”). No idea about the title. But it’s more about true love than any other. Real pearl of the album. The best left for the last. Nice job.
I highly recommend this album to anybody. It’s available free through Spotify. And Robbie Williams is that kind of guy everybody likes.
