Robbie still rocks my world

Robbie is a genius. And yes, I am 25 and not embarrassed to say that I adore Robbie Williams. I was afraid that Los Angeles and hip hop might have gotten ahold of my Robbie and changed him for the worse when I first heard Rudebox, but nope - the album is amazing (as usual)! Robbie's back to his cheeky self, with his usual sarcasm and brutally honesty.

My fave songs on the album:
  • The 80s - What cheeky Robbie was up to when he was a teen. You wonder if he's telling the truth.
  • The 90s - First time I heard this, I nearly cried. Yes. It's true. There were near-tears in my eyes. It's honesty that doesn't come by often. In the style of The Streets, Robbie talks about his years with Take That and Mark Owen and fatty Gary Barlow. Robbie didn't call him fat, I did.
  • Bongo Bong And Je Ne T'aime Plus - If you love quirkiness, this one's for you
  • The Actor - See how many Andy Warhol quotes you can catch
  • She's Madonna and Rudebox are both excellent tracks and I can see why they were both released as singles. Wonder if he'll do one for The 90s?
Anyway, if you haven't heard the album - GO GET IT. It's worth however much the damn original CD costs!
