Robbie Williams has come so far in such a short space of time. This DVD demonstrates exactly that. How able he is to change roles. The DVD provides a backstage film and scenes of the making of the Swing when you're Winning album. To see him so happy making the album in the recording studio is very emotional, for both him and viewer. The DVD offers excellent entertainment for all Robbie fans and those who perhaps don't follow him quite so avidly! He sings all of the songs to an excellent standard along with his special guests, particularly the duets with Jane Horrocks and Johnathan Wilkes. Superb, go buy it!!!

VINE VOICEon 19 December 2002
The rat pack's cool image made something of a comeback in 2002 with Stephen Soderbergh's remake of Ocean's Eleven, although it seems that for Mr Robbie Williams, in his 2001 concert Live at the Albert, the rat pack sense of style never went out of fashion.
Live At The Albert is primarily a showcase for Robbie's multi million selling Swing When You're Winning, an astonishing album of vintage classics from the '50s swing era, originally sung by Robbie's heroes, namely, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jnr and of course, the legendary Frank Sinatra. Live At The Albert features several live duets including "Well, Did You Evah?" with Jon Lovitz and thanks to the miracle of modern technology, a duet with the late great Frank Sinatra himself. Live At the Albert is a young man fulfilling a childhood dream; wearing a tux, backed by an old style big band and playing to an adoring (sold out) audience at London's famous Royal Albert Hall, with his mom in the front row.
The first time I watched Robbie Williams live concert at London's Royal Albert Hall, on a Saturday evening last November, I was so impressed I went straight online at Amazon to review his debut U.S. release The Ego Has Landed. "The Ego Has Landed" refers to Robbie's often brash public statements about himself, which (if taken at face value) suggest that he is a bit of an ego-maniac. However, despite much of his rhetoric, Robbie Williams has in the past turned to both booze and drugs to conquer his fears and self-doubt. Thankfully he survived both or we would have been deprived of the world's greatest showman. For in a pop world inhabitated by characterless pre-packaged record company girl and boybands and goody two shoes solo-singers (a la Ricky Martin and Britney Spears) Robbie Williams is something of a rarity; the genuine article, a complete showman with a checkered past and a very bright future, having recently signed a British record deal with EMI worth a cool £80 million (approx $110 million), to deliver four more albums.
Robbie Williams formerly of Boy band Take That graduated to the forefront of the British music scene with his single "Angels" and has never looked back since. Several number ones and many many hits later he is not only established as a credible singer/songwriter, he is quite simply Britain's biggest and brightest star. Robbie Williams makes fantastic, original and very funny videos (Rock DJ, She's The One, Millenium and A Love Supreme for example) and regularly plays to sold out stadiums around the world and the only two nuts he still has to crack are America and the movies.
But why is America still cynical? A lack of airplay in America? A lack of record company publicity? I don't know. All I know is that, in my opinion, he is the greatest showman to have graced a music stage since the late great Freddie Mercury. He is so good live that he has played at several festivals on the same bill as Indie bands such as the Prodigy, and stolen the show from them, in front of what would traditionally be hostile audiences for a pop performer. Live tickets for Robbie Williams shows are like gold dust in every place bar North America, such is his reputation for putting on a great live show. If you don't believe the hype then you need to watch Live at the Albert and be converted. Robbie Williams has got a great sense of humour, a great sense of style and a great deal of class and frankly America, you don't know what you are missing!!

Robbie Williams needs no introduction and if he does, it should be more than a couple paragraphs from Rupert Everett at the opening of his concert at the Albert. Robbie's performances are almost flawless, although I would rather have Jane Horrocks performed more than just echoing to Robbie. My favourites are: "Have you met Miss Jones", "Ain't That a Kick in The Head," "Mr. Bojangles," and "My way" . Throughout, the concert proves what a great singer/entertainer he is.

This DVD is brilliant. Robbie has a great voice, the songs are classics and the guest stars great. I originally only saw the end of the show on TV but I had to buy this and I wasn't disappointed. It was hard not to get a lump in your throat when Robbie showed the Frank Sinatra footage and when he finished with 'My Way'. Buy the DVD and buy the album, its his best so far.
The boy's done good!
