#2 behind Life Thru A Lens

What Would you give this album out of 10?

9

What Do You Like Most About The Album?

The experimentation, coming off the back of his two weakest studio albums to date the irratic Escapology & the dull Intensive Care it was a breathe of fresh air to here Robbie taking risks.

What 3 words sum up Rudebox for you?

Fun, Experimental, Sad

What Do You Dislike From The Album?

He choose the wrong two tracks to release as the first two singles, when there was so much better to choose from.

What's your favourite B-side from the Rudebox era? (Lonestar Rising or Mess Me Up)

-

Favourite Video From The Album?

She's Madonna - in the long line of UK tradition of dressing up in drag in videos (i.e. Rolling Stones - Have You Seen Your Mother Baby; Kinks - Dead End Street; David Bowie - Boys Keep Swinging; Queen - I Want To Break Free, etc + Rocky Horror Picture Show, Monty Python, The League Of Gentleman, etc)

Favorite Live Performance From The Era?

I saw the gig on Sky 1 & to be honest I felt he lacked the energy & spark of his Knebworth Gigs.

Yeah, as much as I loved the Leeds gig, it was nowhere near as good as Knebworth, Cologne, Slane, RAH. I think it had something to do with him being so tired after such a large tour. After he had his break, it seemed the South American gigs (Argentina, Brazil & Mexico) were brilliant. They are on youtube (well most of them I think). biggrin.gif

4th or maybe even 5th. That doesn't mean that it isn't good, just there are better.


What Would you give this album out of 10?
8/10


What Do You Like Most About The Album?
The fact it's unusual and we didn't expect something like that.


What 3 words sum up Rudebox for you?
Different from others.
That's 3, right? laugh.gif
Different, modern, interesting.


What Do You Dislike From The Album?
Hard to answer. I know something isn't good but I can't say what. Must be the fact I'm just not used to listen that kind of Robbie's songs. I say and I think that a bit of change is good, but I still like old Robbie's songs more. wub.gif


What's your favourite B-side from the Rudebox era? (Lonestar Rising or Mess Me Up)
I love both, so it's hard to chose... sad.gif laugh.gif Oh... rolleyes.gif I'll say Lonestar Rising, because I really don't have comment for Mess Me Up... I think I listened it just one time. laugh.gif


Favourite Video From The Album?
Lovelight, I think...


Favorite Live Performance From The Era?
None of it isn't very special for me, because I haven't anything seen live, just on my comp. I guess, it's Rudebox, but if Robbie promoted album more, I'm sure I'd say some other song.

Scotty.... I agree with you there.... I think Rob was a lot fitter back in 2003 & he is a couple of years older now & he had too many venues in this tour & was wrecked by the time he got to the UK..... . He did some extensive touring around many countries in Europe before coming back to the UK ( look how many he did alone in Germany )... in fact how he managed the five nights at MK is beyond me really & I can only put it down to his total committment to his fans & his utter professionalism...
I am not surprised that he had a relapse at the beginning of this year as it probably all got on top of him....The guy deserves a good long break & it looks like that he is doing just that as he did once again look totally relaxed at Des Moines last weekend.... It was real nice to see those pics & he looking well again & under no pressure. thumbup.gif
