Robbie Williams - Life Thru A Lens - Cd
When Life Thru A Lens came out, Robbie Williams was a swiftly-failing music industry joke--"Blobbie Pill-iams", the ballooning drug-freak, drunk and bleary-eyed at far too many parties for his own good. Although his cover of George Micheal's "Freedom" had gone in at Number 2, "Old Before I Die" and "South Of The Border" sounded too like weak-tea Oasis for any real chart action and people were starting to talk about him as a failure. Then the elegiac "Angels" with its simple black-and-white video hit MTV pay-dirt, and six months later Williams was picking up six BRIT Awards, showing off his post-rehab six-pack and dating an All Saint. And so the rest of Life Thru A Lens is a likeable, hyperactive stream of consciousness--much like Williams himself. "Lazy Days" is an unexpectedly gorgeous psychedelic swoon, and "Let Me Entertain You"--"When I'm Cleaning Windows" for the Hooch generation--is still an irresistible offer. --Caitlin MoranSee all Product Description

Great rock tunes on it aswell as the spine chilling classic Angels - lets face it, everybody knows it.
The climax's to the songs are one the album's best points, of course there is Angels, but then the fabulous 'Killing Me' sends shivers down your spine, and the acoustic 'One Of God's Better People' has something in it that you are just able to relate to somebody in your life.
I only hope that Robbie will be given the credibility he deserves throughout his career and in the many years after, his voice and songs are amazing
Produced by Pete Waterman and with guest freestyle by the likes of Tom Jones, Jason Donovan, the guys from Black Lace and Mia X, Robbie's tribute has always been remembered but where are that Wu Tang Clan band now...? No one knows.
Despite Robbie going against his handlers and saying 9/11 was an inside job he thankfully came back on track after being hypnotised by Uri Geller and spending a week with Christopher Biggins and Lionel Blair and a holiday with Simon Cowell so he then could make this double cd which many fans consider his best work, up there with Take That's Live At the Boudekan 4 cd box set which has both Neil Young and Bob Dylan on it.
Buy this double cd, you won't regret it. Robbie's freestyle is simply amazing.
Stand out tracks are :
My Obese Have Suffered
Burger The Noise
Ol' Dirty Burger
The RiZlA For My Chips
Method Takeaway Delivery Man
Cap On My Donna
Where's Me Burger?
Buy it, if it was £50 it would be worth it.
Amazon have it for a penny.
Doesn't that say something?
From this album you can really tell that Robbie feels it and doesnt just sing a few meaningless words. He shows great maturity in his lyrics in a way that other artists fail to do. And, believe me, this music is nothing like the boyband songs from take that. They're a lot deeaper. They go through what he felt himself and thats what makes it even more special.
Where does that leave Life Thru a Lens? It can be considered a somewhat mismatched album, having as it does a general very good undertone with strong numbers, yet a couple of inferior offerings as well. For his first step onto the scene as a solo artist, though, this is good work. Life Thru a Lens is also, without a doubt, still Robbie's most renegade and experimental album. It is undeniably a soul-searching work. Robbie's lyrics deal a lot with his past life, either directly and honestly or slightly tongue-in-cheek. The sleeve of Life Thru a Lens, featuring Robbie emerging from what looks like a criminal trial (and presumably declared innocent) could perhaps be symbolism for that theme.
Already with the opener, the hopeful and catchy "Lazy Days", is the tone set. Robbie is of course a brilliant singer, and the music he crafts on this album along with Chambers also shows that he is no amateur songwriter. Something about the overall tone leaves something to be desired, but hey, Life Thru a Lens is a good album all considered.
"South of the Border" was an under-appreciated single that's quite strong and understated. Its lyrics I see as an allegory of Robbie dealing with his troubled past, his demons not-too-allegorically personified as the girl Cocaine Katie. "Killing Me" is beautiful and heartbreaking, whereas "One of God's Better People" (written for his mother) is fuel for that broken heart.Read more ›
