ROBBIE WILLIAMS Rudebox (2006 UK 16-track CD album - Robbies 7th album sees him collaborate with an array of musical mavericks such as Pet Shop Boys William Orbit Mark Ronson Soul Mekanik Joey Negro & Lily Allen including the singles Rudebox Lovelight Shes Madonna and features a collection of cover versions of some of his favourite tracks by artists as diverse as Manu Chao The Human League and old friend Stephen Duffy complete with extensive lyric booklet!)
With the help of producer/songwriters William Orbit, Mark Ronson, Jerry Meehan, Joey Negro and Soul Mekanik (plus guests as diverse as The Pet Shop Boys and Lily Allen), Robbie Williams has achieved a most radical transformation. Gone is the slick, pop-rogue of yesteryear: in his place is a new Robbie that raps, embraces club beats and (mostly) favours personal indulgence over cheesy, universal pop. Recent single "Rudebox", all electronic riddims and slack-rap vocal delivery, was just the start of this transition. The rest of Rudebox completes the remarkable overhaul with several eclectic covers - from Manu Chau's "Bongo Bong" and Lewis Taylor's underground classic "Lovelight," to subversive takes on The Human League ("Louise"), My Robot Friend ("We're The Pet Shop Boys") and Stephen Duffy ("Kiss Me") and tracks such as "Keep On", "Good Doctor" and "Dickhead", which confirm his quite bewildering quest to becoming a comedic, Staffs-accented version of The Streets.Slightly more serious are his attempts at what he describes as 'wonky pop'. Songs like "Viva Life On Mars", his odd ode to Madonna ("She's Madonna"), the dark "The Actor" and catchy club-hit-in-waiting "Never Touch That Switch" all feature innovative production and interesting arrangements. Toward the end, we get "The 80s" and "The 90s", two more amusing "rap"-tracks that cover the singer's adolescence and his Take That years respectively; these underline the nostalgic, end-of-an-era feel of the LP. Audaciously eclectic and admirably upfront, Rudebox is overtly a form of personal catharsis. Not all the experiments work, but they're better than you might think, and now they're off his chest it'll be interesting to see where the new Robbie Williams heads to next.--Paul Sullivan See all Product Description

I beg to disagree: With "Rudebox", Robbie Williams offers an open book to his life, the few pros and the many cons attached to being Robbie WIlliams, and this is done with impeccable musical taste in a very carefully chosen variety of genres.
To manufacture "Rudebox", Williams worked with four major producers, each with a very specific role. Soul Mekanik is in charge of the most raucous, shocking tracks (the magnificently crafted "Rudebox", the country-ish "Viva life on Mars" and "Never touch that switch" a rather lame take on "Rudebox" ), William Orbit has the opposite role and he aims at maintaining some peace and harmony in the whole proceedings (Orbit is in charge of a superb cover of The Human League's "Louise" as well as of the official finale of the album, the very serene "Summertime"...even if the demons of Robbie seem to have the last word - on the hidden track...). Mark Ronson is in charge of the most "dancey" tracks of the album, the superb "Lovelight" (a cover from a song by Lewis Taylor), another cover of a very catchy song by Manu Chao ("Bongo bong") and the hilarious "Good Doctor", probably the best lyrics of the album, narrating the perils of begging the doctor for a prescription when you are a drug addict.Read more ›
Some of the songs are simply electro/rap/pop that dosn`t give me anything, but then there`s these tracks that are so brilliant they lift the album to a totally different level:
The first time I listened to Viva Life On Mars I went "oh no! what on earth is this country inspired sound doing on a RW cd?" The second time; "it`s actually not that bad" and it`s still growing on me
Bongo Bongo is one of several coverversions, but I so want to go on hols!
She`s Madonna might be the most commercial track, but elctro pop at it`s best and I can`t figure out why on earth it`s not released as the albums second single!?!
Louise is another coverversion, but who else than RW can make electro pop sound sad?
Good Doctor is another musical mix and I actually tried hating it. But it`s jazzy and soo swings! And that in the combination with some pretty serious lyrics; I find it to be the best track on the album. Simply can`t stop playing it!!!
If Robbie ever manages to pull off Keep On live I`ll simply take my hat off and bow, but it`s such a mental musical mix I can`t decide if I like it or not; I`ll either end up loving it or hating it...
The album is def different, it`s brave, thankfully not so comercial as the previuos ones the musical critics love and as RW at last - according to himself - is making music like the one he likes all I have to say is FINALLY!!!
I`d given this product a 5 star + if it wasn`t for the DVD.Read more ›
The whole album presents a collection of 80s'-influenced electro-pop tunes, some of them originals and some well chosen covers, such as the amazing Lovelight and the bonkers Bongo Bong. Also collaborations with the likes of the Pet Shop Boys and Lilly Allen, not to be missed.
All in all, this is one of the best albums released this year and a definite must-have, but it must be listened to with an open mind. I bet if the name Robbie Williams wasn't on the cover, people would be praising it a lot more.
As for the DVD included in this special edition, it contains Rudebox live from Leeds as well as the documentary 'We Are Not Alone', which was shown on Sky in September. If you haven't seen the documentary yet, it is more than worth buying this special edition, as it contains a lot of backstage footage from the last tour.
Welcome back, Mr. Williams!
