Reality Killed The Video Star
Released: Nov 2009
Label: Virgin Records
Though they've always shared a certain penchant for drama and sassy wit, Robbie Williams has taken a serious stylistic page from pal Elton John here. Reality is glam-tastic, a shimmering, strings-ridden collection of disco chic, dancefloor sleek and crocodile pop-rock. Like everything Robbie does, it's smart and heavily stylized -- and possibly risky for those very reasons. But his timing might just be impeccable: Thanks to Lady Gaga and Adam Lambert, America is experiencing a revived interest in just this aesthetic. Hey, the U.S. might even give Robbie the time of day this time around!
