Robbie Williams
Rudebox
EMI

Robbie Williams has sold, snorted and shagged his millions. Even though he seems like (through interviews) a nice guy, his music is getting more and more stinky. Not that I've ever been a fan. His dance-pop receipt seems a bit wrong. Williams has co-written many of the songs, a couple with the Pet Shop Boys, plus he's throwing in a few covers. Among them one of Manu Chao's, "Bongo Bong"/King of the Bongo, paired with "Je ne t'aime plus". Coming out quite...horrible. Robbie Williams is longing for the disco floor of the buttery 80s. I don't. This CD is the sound of pretentious dribble.

Sorry, fatboy slick, you're becoming yesterday's news. Guess Justin's taken your throne.
