Robbie Williams - Email From A Vampire

"I don't like sunlight"

What to say about Robbie Williams? By now he's such an important part of the British pop landscape, that it's hard to remember when he wasn't releasing music. And although his output will never reach the popularity (or general quality) that it once had, he's still churning out great records. His new greatest hits (about as comprehensive as it gets) has just been released and, if for some reason you're unfamiliar with his material, I can't imagine a more perfect album. The real treat for fans, though, is the third cd of b-sides. All but three have already been heard, but Williams is definitely a b-side artist. He's got dozens and dozens of them, and most are of album-quality. The three new tracks are amazing, particularly Email From A Vampire. As the title suggests, it flirts with novelty but is saved by a soft 80's rock beat and gorgeous melody. This is exactly the sound he should be moving toward--a mix of Rudebox era experimentalism and his newer, mature releases.

I like it. A lot. It's rather pleasing. It may well be the best vampire song since Annie's Love song for a vampire...

Love that song! Maybe you should do a feature about "B-side artists" and their best b-sides. I would definitely love to read that :-)
