Product Description


If you're tempted to smirk at Robbie Williams's hip-factor-free approach to music, you are too late; he's already beaten you to the punch. On Sing When You're Winning, the British megastar's self-parodying caricatures, filled with both bravado and deprecation, safely evade overearnestness in forms such as crickets chirping behind the love song "If It's Hurting You," and the unexpected orchestral string arrangement from Gloria Gaynor's "I Will Survive" in "Supreme," a sermon for the aging broken-hearted. "Kids," his rousing bubblegum-funk duet with Kylie Minogue bursts into what can only be described as a full-out "musical number"; pop music hasn't seen such stare-down chemistry since Sandy and Danny declared "You're the One That I Want" back in 1978. From the "One Night in Bangkok" tributary disco track "Rock DJ" to the lighter-igniting anthem "Let Love Be Your Energy," this is unadulterated, epic pop music, and Williams' smart, irresistible wit permits the listener to indulge guiltlessly in all the album's bombastic fun. --Beth Massa

5.0 out of 5 stars This is the ONE April 23 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is not Robbie Williams' first solo CD, nor his latest, but it is arguably his best. Full of straight-ahead, at times derivative-sounding pop tunes, it typically echoes the clever writing and extraordinary vocal versatility of the Brit entertainment phenom. But unlike his earlier efforts that were, with only a very few notable exceptions such as "Angels" and "Millennium," unsophisticated, rudimentary, or chaotic, most of the songs on this album reveal a maturity in composition. Together, Williams and his collaborator, Guy Chambers, have breached the abyss. The lyrical statements, bleeding with the now-familiar, classic Robbie conflicts, are not just entertaining but clear, the musical motifs likewise pronounced. "If you're looking to change the world, 'Let Love Be Your Energy'" barks the startling presence of the first selection, followed by a plaintive "Lord I'm doing all I can to be a 'Better Man,'" then the smash single, disco-techy, bass throbbing "Rock DJ," the I Will Survive-sound-alike "Supreme" in which Williams forlornly though eloquently wails, "Oo-h-h, seems like forever stopped today . . ." and more. The duet with Kylie Minogue on the danceable "Kids" ends with Williams rapping at his self-promoting, but irresistibly, cheeky best: "I'm an Honorary Sean Connery, born '74, There's only one of me, single-handedly raising the economy . . ." A balance and congruity is present here that is simply absent from much of his previous and, sadly, later work. The music shouts that Robbie Williams is aware he's arrived. The stars may not all be aligned, but he recognizes that his firmly-staked (at turns self-doubting)claim has been acknowledged. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Robbie Williams is Supreme Aug. 21 2001
Format:Audio CD
Although I've heard some of Robbie WIlliams songs on the radio I've never bought one of his CD's. The previous reviews I read on Amazon were so good I thought I'd give it a try. To say that I really like this CD is an understatement: It's eclectic with Williams bouncing back and forth between hard-rock, tender ballads, infectious dance songs and back to hard rock. When I first heard "Supreme" I was amazed at the layers, beauty and simple greatness of the song. I can't seem to play it enough. It's been years since a song fired me up so much. Be warned that many of Williams songs aren't for the masses who like Christina, Brittany, N'Sync, etc. His lyrics are complex and introspective but work so well with the music. Try this CD if you're adventurous.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun As Always June 21 2004
By Meg
Format:Audio CD
I can't say enough great things about this album. I must admit that I am a latecomer to Robbie's music, as I have only been listening to him for the past two years. However, better late than never! I have come to love Robbie's cheekiness and his often sarcastic remarks on what it's like to be famous. This album is fun, both lyrically and musically, and I want everyone to listen to it! Some standout tracks include "Let Love Be Your Energy," "Supreme," "Kids," "If It's Hurting You," and "The Road to Mandalay." I would also recommend purchasing the DVD of Robbie's live performance at Knebworth in the summer of 2003 - a spectacular show that will certainly go down in his career history!

5.0 out of 5 stars It doesn't get better then this! June 18 2001
Format:Audio CD
robbie Williams has got to be one of the more accessable singers out there today. His lyrics make you think, make you sing and his music simply moves you. He can be catchy and up-beat in one song and serious in an other. He is like a good friend who knows how to cheer you up, who knows that life is filled with ups and downs. This Cd has got it all, dance numbers, thought provoking songs and a little romance thrown in. Robbie loves to sing and I would guess loves to party and it shows. Excellent album from a down to earth fun loving man. Hope there are more in the works. I have the Canadian version by the way which has Robbie singing in French and spanish on two bonus tracks. Highly recommended.
