Robbie Williams: The Heavy Entertainment Show

There is no escaping the over-the-top 11th studio album, The Heavy Entertainment Show, by Robbie Williams. You maybe have heard about the controversy Williams is engendering over the lyrics over the album’s first single “Party Like A Russian” and how kinky the video is (at least the shoes are kinky that models/ballerinas wear in the video). But there is lots to like about Heavy Entertainment Show. From the interplay between the simple piano and Williams’ barker opening vocal contrasting with the welcoming big horn roiling choruses of the title track opener, to the dance tune over Prokofiev spikes of “Party Like a Russian.”
