Released: 3rd October 2005.
This single, the 'appetizer' for Robbie's forthcoming new album "Intensive Care", is arguably one of the best he's ever done. Never afraid to try something new, Robbie's chorus vocals are quite high on this song. Meanwhile, the melody line is slightly reminiscent of the verses in Rozalla's 1991 dance classic "Everybody's Free (To Feel Good)" and just begs you to sing along. A real classic, very catchy and, even though I'm not a big fan of Robbie Williams, I must say that with "Tripping", he's done it again.
Ever since "Radio" last year, Robbie Williams has shown signs of struggling without songwriting partner Guy Chambers. "Tripping" shows signs of continuing this trend. The most irritating thing about this song though is Robbie's ill-advised falsetto vocals, which he doesn't really have the range to pull off.
