WOW! What a brilliant album this is. After 3 years away, the best selling artist of the decade returns with his 8th studio album, and it is easily up there as one of his finest. There is not a single bad track on here. It is the perfect mix of old Robbie and experimental Robbie. There are lots of fantastic ballads delivered in only the way the Robster can. Opening number Morning Sun is simply fantastic - has a great Sgt Pepper sound to it. The massive global smash hit 'Bodies' is a soaring anthem that just gets better with each listen. Second single 'You Know Me' is orchastra pop at its best. A brilliant pop tune - very addictive and catchy. Then comes Blasphemy, which is simply beautiful. The last Williams/Chambers penned tune. It has some brilliant lyrics from Robbie, and his voice sounds amazing on it. Do You Mind is classic rockin Robbie, whilst 'Last Days Of Disco sees Rob return to the electro sound of his Rudebox album. But dont be put off, this track is simply brilliant and easily one of the highlights of the album. The short but great Somewhere leads perfectly into the Bowie-influence 'Deceptecon' which is just wonderful in so many ways. 'Starstruck' sounds like a mix between Fastlove by George Michael and Robbie's own 'Lovelight'. Very catchy and could well be the 3rd single. Difficult For Weirdo's sees him revert back to the Pet Shop Boys influenced electro sound once again, and works very well. The comes 'Superblind', easily in the top 3 songs on the album. This stars off slow and builds up with soaring guitar riffs with Robbie proclaiming "Im the genius behind me". Just when you thought it cant get much better, the anthemic 'Wont Do That' appears accompanied with a great guitar solo..
This is a truly fantastic album, and any fan of sosphisticated orchestral pop music should own it. The legend that is Trevor Horn does an excellent job producing this. It deserves to be a massive hit. If you have any sence you will buy it now!
