Robbie Williams - Candy

"Liberate your sons and daughters"

That tidal wave of new music I was talking about last week has started, and Robbie Williams' return to pop is among the spoils we get to bask in for the next few months. Many are calling this his comeback single, but I don't think that's really true. I mean, his last album sold very well and was released only a couple of years ago, and his reunion with Take That was a bonafide blockbuster. So, it's not really a comeback. More of a victory lap. It is, however, his first single in awhile that embraces a pop sound, rather than go down the easier, adult-contemporary route. Candy, co-written with band-mate and X-Factor judge Gary Barlow, is big, brash and sickeningly catchy. One listen to the chorus and it'll be stuck in your head all day. I'm not sure exactly what's going on in the video (below), but it's entertaining. That's the big word for this track: ENTERTAINING. I love it. He is a legend.
