Product Description

Amazon.ca

Robbie Williams, ex-Bad Boy du boy's band anglais Take That, devenu un exceptionnel showman, débute sa carrière solo avec un l'album Life Thru A Lens doté d'un tube massue "Angels". Sur sa lancée, empochant les suffrages des foules pop et des fans de rock, il enregistre un deuxième opus I've Been Expecting You où il combine avec panache le rock mélodique des meilleurs Beatles ("Win Some Lose Some" ou "Heaven From Here"), la pop synthétique des classieux Pet Shop Boys ("No Regrets", avec d'ailleurs Neil Tennant aux choeurs ainsi que Neil Hannon de Divine Comedy) ou le kitsch intemporel façon Tom Jones ("Millenium"). Bien épaulé par Guy Chambers, ex-World Party, cet excellent compositeur-arrangeur octroie à "l'homme de l'année 1998" une crédibilité musicale inédite grâce au florilège de pépites pop qui illuminent ce recommandable Life Thru A Lens. --Sabrina Silamo

5.0 out of 5 stars America, You're Missing One of the Best! Nov. 19 2002
Format:Audio CD
During the credits for "Bridget Jones Diary" I heard a fabulous rendition of "Have You Met Miss Jones?" and wondered who was singing. I found out after I saw Robbie Williams on BBC America singing "Miss Jones." Then I saw a concert movie of a Sloan Castle concert and began surfing the net for his CDs. I bought "I've Been Expecting You." I have not been disappointed. This is one of the best CDs I've ever heard. "Millenium" may be the big hit from this, but I adore "Karma Killer." The song is an anthem for anyone who's been burned in love, is mad as hell about it and doesn't care who knows! Great fun and enormously cathartic. I'm old enough to be Robbie's mother, but I can't fathom why he is not a major star in this country.

This is one of those rare albums where every song is a winner.
Mr. Boy Band in a previous life, Williams achieved the show biz miracle of coming back from a seriously washed up career and substance dependency. Having been dismissed as a no talent has-been, he came back with four superlative albums of substance and broad appeal. This one is the best of the lot.
Each song stands up well on its own, from the minor US alternative hit "Millenium", with its catchy string loops and witty acknowledgement of celebrity shallowness, to the anthemic "Phoenix From The Flames". Williams also provides a fine demonstration of the British penchant for clever lyrics throughout.
The song order is well-thought out, with the complex rhythms of "Jesus in a Camper Van" and the (ripping mad!) angst of "Karma Killer" broken up by hummable ballad, "Heaven From Here". This interspersement of showcase tracks with quietly majestic ones occurs throughout the album and enhances the impact of each song.
I've lent this album to three people and all of them purchased it immediately afterward. Happy listening.

5.0 out of 5 stars STILL THE BEST!!!! Feb. 20 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I've been so busy wearing out "Sing When You're Winning", Robbie's Fabulous new CD that I had neglected my old friend, "I've Been Expecting You". A couple weeks ago I picked it up again and concluded that this truly is Robbie at his best.
The true test of a good CD is when you can put it in and just leave it running or better yet, hit random and let your CD player surprise you. That's what you can do with I've Been Expecting You and you can't do that with a lot of other albums.
I've been playing it since 1999 and nothing has gotten old. The thing that make this album awesome is that the songs are complete with incredible lyrics and excellent music.
I still want to jump up and dance to the hip hop sound of "Millenium", I still think "No Regrets" is the ultimate break up song. "Pheonix From the Flames" is the best thing if you need to pick yourself and get going again.
And the love songs are here in full force (Unlike on "Sing When You're Winning", where Robbie is lamenting his lack of love. That too has its place but if you're looking for romantic ballads I've Been Expecting You is your best bet) "She's the One", is pure bliss, just listen to Robbie croon at a high pitch about the beauty of true love! "Heaven From Here" is almost like a prayer and it explores the protective, nuturing side of love and romance and the smooth sound of "Grace" will transport you.
The heavy rock numbers literally scream at you. The loud, angry "Karma Killer" is great to play when you're ticked off at someone and "Man Machine" rocks like no other track on this CD. (Play these two tracks really loud for maximum effect!)
But the real gem here is "Win Some, Lose Some"!

5.0 out of 5 stars Spread the word-Robbie is here!! Sept. 17 2000
Format:Audio CD
I purchased this cd and Robbie's first cd "Life Thru a Lens" while my husband and I lived in Germany. I become a fan of Robbie's in 1996 when he released his interpitation of George Michael's "Freedom", to say the least I was hook from the word go!! "Let Me Entertain You" is an infectous song that you can't get out of your head after hearing it. My personal favorites are "Strong" and "Angels". I was a little disappointed when the overseas versions of his videos (except for "Millenium") were not released in the States. When I moved back to the States in 1999 I carried my Robbie cd's with me on the plane, I wasn't going to let them get lost with my household good being moved! I was back 3 days and began going through No Robbie withdrawls and alas "The Ego Has Landed" appeared! Quit listening to the generic bubblegum music that some groups are putting out and grab a cd by a man that is not only for the younger crowd but for the more mature listeners.
