Biography

Out of all the members of Take That, Robbie Williams never really seemed to fit in. Roguishly handsome where his bandmates were merely cute, Williams was tougher and sexier than the rest, which made him more distinctive. He also fought regularly with the other members and their management, primarily because he was occasionally adverse to being so heavily packaged. So it didn't come as a ...

Great fun and enormously cathartic.
Iris Aster
Most of the songs are slow or mid-tempo but there are also some great faster tracks on it.

During the credits for "Bridget Jones Diary" I heard a fabulous rendition of "Have You Met Miss Jones?" and wondered who was singing. I found out after I saw Robbie Williams on BBC America singing "Miss Jones." Then I saw a concert movie of a Sloan Castle concert and began surfing the net for his CDs. I bought "I've Been Expecting You." I have not been disappointed. This is one of the best CDs I've ever heard. "Millenium" may be the big hit from this, but I adore "Karma Killer." The song is an anthem for anyone who's been burned in love, is mad as hell about it and doesn't care who knows! Great fun and enormously cathartic. I'm old enough to be Robbie's mother, but I can't fathom why he is not a major star in this country.

I've been so busy wearing out "Sing When You're Winning", Robbie's Fabulous new CD that I had neglected my old friend, "I've Been Expecting You". A couple weeks ago I picked it up again and concluded that this truly is Robbie at his best.
The true test of a good CD is when you can put it in and just leave it running or better yet, hit random and let your CD player surprise you. That's what you can do with I've Been Expecting You and you can't do that with a lot of other albums.
I've been playing it since 1999 and nothing has gotten old. The thing that make this album awesome is that the songs are complete with incredible lyrics and excellent music.
I still want to jump up and dance to the hip hop sound of "Millenium", I still think "No Regrets" is the ultimate break up song. "Pheonix From the Flames" is the best thing if you need to pick yourself and get going again.
And the love songs are here in full force (Unlike on "Sing When You're Winning", where Robbie is lamenting his lack of love. That too has its place but if you're looking for romantic ballads I've Been Expecting You is your best bet) "She's the One", is pure bliss, just listen to Robbie croon at a high pitch about the beauty of true love! "Heaven From Here" is almost like a prayer and it explores the protective, nuturing side of love and romance and the smooth sound of "Grace" will transport you.
The heavy rock numbers literally scream at you. The loud, angry "Karma Killer" is great to play when you're ticked off at someone and "Man Machine" rocks like no other track on this CD. (Play these two tracks really loud for maximum effect!)
But the real gem here is "Win Some, Lose Some"!

My subject line is what the title of this album should have been. Because by the summer of 1998, people doubted that Robbie could earn any respectability as a solo artist after his huge success with Life Thru A Lens, in particular his takeover of the UK charts with the hit single Angels that elevated Robbie as a mainstream pop phenomena.
But September 1998 came about and Robbie dropped the bomb. An instant classic chart-topper titled I've Been Expecting You. Along with Oasis, Robbie became the only British artist who released two consequetive number one hit albums back to back one year apart.
The album opens up with, surpisingly, a self confession, 'Strong' reveals that Robbie isn't who he really is in the public eye and that he is a man dealing with weaknesses and insecurity but that at the end of the day he feels happy to be making music. The track is an Oasis-esque rock song with the weirdest lyrics such as 'early mornin' when i wake up, i look like KISS but without the make-up, and that's a good line to take it to the bridge'
'No Regrets' is a powerful ballad, possibly more powerful than Angels. Robbie sticks and jabs at the unknown target with everything he's got. A song about losing a person you love so much and the anger and helplessness you feel that you talk to yourself about. 'Millenium' is a artsy pop song. Sounds disco with the theme of a James Bond movie. This is the song that crossed Robbie over the Atlantic and landed his first hit in America, but trust me there are way better tracks here and on his previous album than this one. 'Win Some Lose Some' features the voice of Robbie's ex and currently the love of Robbie's rival Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher, Nicole Appleton. The song is a fun pop tune with those jingling acoustic guitar strums.

I may quote a review from a different place: "Like Madonna, Williams can neither sing nor write particularly well, nor, like Madonna, does he need to." It's true, Williams may not be extraordinarily talented as to his singing, but what he has to say in his songs is quite touching. Besides, I have listened to view CDs that were as recommendable in their entirity as this one.

"I've Been Expecting You" is MAGNIFICENT! If you listen to "Life Thru a Lens" first, then this CD, it's almost like you're following him on his "Boy-to-Man" journey. This CD is like the "to" phase of that transition. It's obvious Robbie has matured, both lyrically and musically on this CD, yet he still manages to keep his young cocky self-depricating lyrics and vocal stylings intact. The one shimmering jewel on this CD is "Grace". Being the proud owner of "The Ego Has Landed", Grace is probably the one song on this CD, not on "Ego" that I was most surprised by. It seems like he took a cue from some of his rat pack heros and did a smooth campy 60's cabaret feeling piece - but he did it well. And that's what makes his CD so great and timeless - even more so than in "Life Thru a Lens." He manages to stretch his musical arms and legs into several different genres yet some how seems to retain a unifying sound that makes it all "Robbie" instead of sounding like some cheap lounge act. This CD has everything from the dancable hip-hop-esque "Millennium" to his incredible mission statement "Phoenix from the Flames" to his rich flowing ballads. And that's just half of it. It's clear Robbie is maturing. however, songs like "Strong" and "Win Some Lose Some" show he's still a vulnerable young man - but that's a good thing. I'm not sure I wanna see Robbie make it to his "Man" stage...at least not for a couple of years. A considerable part of his appeal comes in is cocky, young, self-depricating, music lyrics, and vocal stylings. All in all, this CD is a must have for any CD collection, whether or not you're big into Robbie or not. It's just great music with something in it for everybody.
