Life Thru a Lens by Robbie Williams

I don’t know why I’ve listened to one Robbie Williams before and it was the second one rather than his first solo effort - but hey, I’m righting that wrong now. This is such an interesting album to listen to knowing its place in time - leaving a globally successful band to go it alone is such a risk, but it’s clear Robbie wanted to spread his wings and get a bit more Britpop, a bit less traditional pop. That’s clear right from the start and carries all the way through the album (Angels, oddly, doesn’t really seem to fit on here despite being such a classic).
