Product Description

Product Description

Britain's leading pop entertainer Robbie Williams goes back to pop basics with his eighth studio album Reality Killed The Video Star. After receiving mixed reviews for his 2006 record Rudebox, the former Take That man enlists the help of pioneering producer Trevor Horn, with electrifying results. Big and bold, it's a typical Robbie album. Packed with plenty of wit and humour, it's a storming return to form. Includes the single "Bodies".

Product Description

ROBBIE WILLIAMS Reality Killed The Video Star (2009 UK 13-track CD album - Produced by the legendary Trevor Horn Reality Killed The Video Star is an evocative and triumphant return to form from the UKs biggest solo male artist in history. Includes the single Bodies)

To start off with, I am not a huge Robbie fan, so this is an unbiased review. Secondly, I felt I had to post my comments to counter the negative remarks that have been made by other "reviewers" who have yet to hear the album! I've had access to a preview copy of the new CD and have to say that I really like it, in fact I can't stop playing it at the moment! In my opinion this marks a return to form for Robbie, more in line with his older material (Angels, Feel, Millennium, etc.). The main difference between this new CD and his older works would be the fact that he had dropped the cheesy "cheeky boy" act and seems to be taking a much more mature approach to his music.

The album leans more towards reflective ballads and gentle pop with about 3 upbeat tracks in between but nothing as high energy as "Let Me Entertain You" or "Rock DJ". Don't get me wrong, tracks like "Do You Mind", "Difficult for Weirdos" will still get you bopping around in the kitchen and are great fun but this is a more mature sound which shows that Robbie is growing along with his audience and he really gives us something that we can connect with. Trevor Horn's production is excellent, delivering a very rich layered sound with plenty of orchestration. The two tracks with a more "electronic" sound, ("Last Days of Disco" and "Difficult For Weirdos") would easily fit on to any Pet Shop Boys album but work equally well on this CD. I love the track "Bodies" and there are loads more stand out tracks on the album that will no doubt be future singles, such as "Morning Sun" and "Decepticon", both of which are excellent.

Definitely worth a listen whether you are a Robbie fan or not and highly recommended if you are a fan of well produced pop music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Two weeks later 21 Oct 2009
By J. Hunt
Format:Audio CD
Normally I have no time for reviews written before the release of an album. But I've just listened to a number of the new tracks from this album on a live radio broadcast and they were absolutely incredible. I've gone from 'I might buy it but I don't know' to 'Give me this album NOW!' If you were wavering rest assured the boy is back with avengance.
Two weeks on and track by track:
Morning Sun - beautiful opener and the lyrics make a lot of sense when you know it was written following the death of Michael Jackson
Bodies - sorry Rob but I wasn't convinced it was even a grower. However, it sits a lot more comfortably in the context of the album and I really like it now.
You Know Me - good sing along but not the best choice of single (IMHO)
Blasphemy - gripped me totally on the Electric Proms broadcast and is still beautiful 100 plays later
Do You Mind - fun - I love the performance on this. For dancing round the kitchen
Last Days of Disco - Never got the Pet Shop Boys thing but this is gradually getting to me
Somewhere - Cute vignette (is that how you spell it?)
Deceptacon - To plagerise a newspaper reviewer this is a 'Languid sigh' of a song and now my favourite Robbie ever. Just gorgeous (and to those critical of the lyrics think on "I am the walrus coocoocachoo..........")
Starstruck - Yes! yes! and yes again! Should have been the second single.
Difficult for Weirdoes - See Last Days of Disco
Superblind - Didn't even notice it first play through but now think it's stunning. Rob at his falsetto best.
Won't Do That - a bit cheesy but if he wrote it for me I wouldn't mind one bit (Ayda's a lucky lady!)
On a final note - the production is excellent. Lovely orchestrations but not over done to the point that all the soul is missing. Buy it? Certainly. Welcome back, Rob.

5.0 out of 5 stars Refreshing new sound 10 Nov 2009
Format:Audio CD
It was a treat for me to play this album for the first time & find that Robbie has clearly moved on from the safe bets of the Robbie Williams/Guy Chambers era where the likes of Angels & Feel which were great in their day but had begun to sound tired & jaded... I think Reality Killed The Vdeo Star is totally refreshing & Robbies best album to date.
It contains such wonderful ballads as Morning Sun, Deceptacon & Superblind & the fabulous upbeat Electro/Disco tracks like Difficult For Weirdos, Starstruck, Last Days Of Disco & the brilliant Do You Mind.
Absolutely fantastic to hear Robbie once again back at his best & bringing us something completely new.

5.0 out of 5 stars WELCOME BACK ROBBIE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 7 Nov 2009
By kazza
Format:Audio CD
I have the full collection of Robbie albums and thought after a three year break, and being panned for his last album, Rudebox (which actually had massive sales and was No.1 in 18 countries.....) and seriously wondered if Robbie would have the inspiration, innovation or enthusiasm to write songs that moved me like his previous ones.

I have to say, I am stunned and staggered by the brilliance of this album - not one duff track on it. It either has you dancing in your chair or filling with tears at the depth of feeling in his voice and lyrics. It is a wonderful combination of classiness and quirkiness, in parts upbeat, in parts reflective.

As always with Robbie, this album illustrates where he is in his life right now - another chapter in his musical autobiography.

Thank you Robbie. Silly to say - but that's how I feel.
