Robbie Williams is, undoubtedly, one of my favorites. He's such an eccentric figure you can but either like him or hate him. In case his music rings some familiar and pleasant tunes to your ears, the deal's probably on.
The most amazing fact about Robbie may not be his music, but his insane ideas. He's done it nearly all what music is concerned and "Swing When You're Winning" is the absolute hit. The mere fact that such a popular pop singer would record an album remaking some true classic songs of some of the greatest years in musical history is even more amazing given this pop singer is Robbie Williams. Not to mention the huge cultural gap, music wise, in which the "new generations" have taken a preposterous leap. Seeing Robbie proved to me that there is still something left of the true musical spirit. It proved, not necessarily beyond any doubt, but convincingly enough for me, that RW isn't just another wacko on the music stage. Guts, nuts and style.
The truly amazing thing is that he's actually good at singing these songs. You can never truly compare the original with the remake, still no one can deny Robbie sounds incredibly good on this album, at this concert. As usually, he proves that he's a natural performer, one of the greatest of all time probably. A real magician.
