Robbie Williams: “Go Gentle” (2013)

With over 70 million records sold worldwide, Robbie Williams is one of the most popular entertainers in the world, despite America not being hip to the former member of Take That. His first seven solo albums since leaving the 90’s boy band┬áhave all gone to number one in the UK.

Robbie’s “Go Gentle” expresses a tender, protective sentiment suggestive of a father-daughter relationship. It’s typical of the singer’s smooth, classy MOR sound–Brits get it, though it’s not the preferred cup of tea of most Americans.
