Williams, Robbie : Feel
...a backbone of baggy piano pinched from early '90s New Order, barely audible breathy porno-french vocals...
an after hours pop-anthem in the vein of [a][/a]’s 1994 hit ‘Confide In Me’. It starts off well enough - a backbone of baggy piano pinched from early '90s New Order, barely audible breathy porno-french vocals. Then Robbie
blunders in barking about his deep need to (I)"feeeeeeeeeeeeel reeeeeeeeeeeel love"(/i), preferably (i)"ever after"(/I). The fact that he barely scrapes the note that he’s after doesn't help much either. ‘Feel’ is a good pop song that’s wasted on a performer likeWilliams. Note to Guy Chambers: Will Young, Gareth Gates and Gary Barlow would bare knuckle fight to the death for a pop song like this.
