Robbie Williams – Escapology

Egotistical, self-deprecating, angry, melancholy are all reasons why I like Robbie Williams and this album is my favourite of his. His later stuff hasn’t grabbed me at all Escapology_coverbut this album has loads of great tracks on it.  The self-referential nature of his songs is attractive.  Someone trying to analyse their life and feelings is something I can relate to, after all we are all trying to find meaning in our lives aren’t we?  This sounds a bit deep and it is, but its wrapped up in ballads and faster-paced pop tunes that are great to listen to.  A lot of his albums do have a similar sound and style so I can understand that some people just don’t like his music, but as with most artists who I really like its the people as much as the songs that get me listening.

Standout track: Nan’s Song
