What I love most about this album is the great mix of songs. You go from the soft side of Robbie in 'Go Gentle' (which provides a direct opposite to much of his prominant earlier work) to the more manic and upbeat side in 'Shine My Shoes', reminscient of the style of 'Candy' last year. The mix of tempo and style throughout the track list is great - and it means through the album we get to experience all the different sides of Robbie Williams.
One thing I will say, I'm not sure if there is any stand out song like there have been on other albums, but I'm not really sure that matters. Why settle for one amazing song when Robbie can give you 13. Plus, if Robbie's amazing voice and style on this album was not enough we are also treated to some amazing colloborations throughout - my favourites coming from Olly Murs and Lily Allen. I don't think I have seen an album, in a long time, where so many artists have wanted to have their name on it - it is a true testimant to Robbie and his impact on the music genre.
This album is a gem - and all I can do is congratulate Robbie on pulling it out of the bag once again.
I have followed Robbie's music over the years and noticed that he has tended to mellow towards the more Jazzy American, (Swing while you're winning) and then this album, which my wife bought for me for Christmas.
The album features duets with some current stars, (as shown on the cover) and it is the fun and enjoyment that they seem to have that makes this album, (for me) and instant success.
I must give a five star review and say this music is Robbie Williams at his best.
A great easy listening album.
I'd already heard Shine My Shoes and Go Gentle and they're great; but it's some of the other tracks that really stood out for me. Most notably, the simple and gentle Snowblind and the brilliant title track: Swings Both Ways. I also loved Robbie's take on If I Only Had a Brain.
I wouldn't be surprised if this turns out to be the best album I hear all year.
If you liked his first swing album, then you should be very pleased with this release. But, do yourself a favour and buy the deluxe version! Highly recommended!!
I've now watched the bonus DVD included with the deluxe edition. It's a couple of seconds over 11 minutes!!! Basically, it's a bit of a waste of shiny silver. While it's nice to see studio/recording footage, it's not that great if it's edited (not complete songs) or just dull. Don't think I'll bother watching it again.
I'd also like to address a comment I read stating that all the 5* reviews are from die hard fans. Personally, that's not true. Most of Robbie's albums are a bit mediocre for me. I tend to love his singles. Also, Rudebox, would be in my Top 100 worst albums of all time.
My review is for THIS album and nothing else.
A super selection of big band numbers, together with some duets and a couple of his original songs too.
Different from the first album, in that it has more variety.
Beautifully packaged as always with his work,
you can tell Robbie is comfortable in this genre of song - and works well with his peers, to create some nice pieces.
I was made-up when the new album was announced (2 weeks after his last tour finished – how does he fit it in!?). I wasn’t just pleased because I loved Swing When You’re Winning, but because it seemed the next logical next step: Robbie has matured. His voice is deeper, perfectly suited to swing music. I’m not saying there was anything wrong with his last album Take The Crown, because there were some gems on there (see Different), but the days of being a young, current pop star are unfortunately behind him. Try as he might, it makes sense for him to move on to something a little more mature and refined, especially considering most of his audience these days are aged thirty and above anyway.
Sadly, the album isn’t in the same league as Swing When You’re Winning.Read more ›
