This for me is Robbie Williams at his best. The big band genre suits Robbie so well and is a great companion album to his Swing While Your Winning. On this album he duets with the likes of Olly Murs and Lily Allen and the songs are a nice mix of old classics and newly written songs.
A great easy listening album.

Robbie Williams is nothing short of genius; every year he releases a new album and every year we all think "will this be the year where he just doesn't get it right". Well the answer is No! This album is spot on - and is Robbie at his best.

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 never used to think much of Robby to tell the truth but after listening to this album start to finish, my opinion has changed. This is a great album to buy and a one that can be played over again. (MP3 download is the way forward)

As a man of thirty something, Robbie Williams and Take That were a screaming arm waving distraction for girls and an unfortunate liking of their music for many under cover chaps, in my generation.
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.

I loved Robbie's first swing album and looked forward to an encore. I'm so pleased he's given us one. I'm also really pleased I paid the extra couple of quid to get the deluxe version. Those extra 3 songs (Where There's Muck, 16 Tons and Wedding Bells) are among some of the best. But, if I'm honest, there isn't a duff track on the entire 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!!

EDIT
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.

Another great album from Robbie.
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.

Its Robbie...What else would he get other than 5 stars. This is his SECOND Swing Album. Its called "swing Both Ways" and at one time would camp it up on TV it could be mis-construed that he MAY swing both ways!!!
Even the disc was in PINK. he has had 14 ALbums and ALL 14 of em have been No1 that is no mean feat!!! This is class.Its been 10 years since his first swing album and this BRILL. It contains his hit single " Go gentle" written about his little baby daughter Teddy. Telling her to' go gentle' with her life especially boys! Also it duests with other top peeps/ Michael Buble Olly Murrs and Lily who he sings " Dream a Little Dream" as the new single. HOW can this man who will be 40 on Feb 13th do any wrong.hes good looking a great singer, a good dad and a happily married man AND he knows how to work his magic with his audienced........Its a greeat album if you are a Robbie fan BUY IT. If you are not you are missing out. Love you Robbie........ x
