Swings Both Ways

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide
Swings Both Ways, Robbie Williams' second swing album (after 2001's Swing When You're Winning), is far more than just another opportunity to don a dapper black suit. With guests including Kelly Clarkson, Michael Bublé, Olly Murs, Lily Allen, and Rufus Wainwright, Williams stretches out on a mix of standards and originals. Among the standards are a predictably witty "I Wan'na Be Like You" with Murs, a warm and playful "Dream a Little Dream" with Allen, and in his best self-deprecating fashion, Robbie's own spin on the Wizard of Oz chestnut "If I Only Had a Brain.,"
