was one of the most enjoyable records of his career, but it wasn't a commercial success. Its follow-up, Reality Killed the Video Star
, attempts to right the ship, and as such, it becomes everything its predecessor was not. The album is given an MOR blockbuster production by Trevor Horn
, with arrangements by his longtime co-writer Anne Dudley
. It certainly has the sound it needs to succeed with Williams
' aging audience and also clean up on BBC Radio 2. Williams
remains an excellent ballads singer, well suited for this grandiose backing. The album is front-loaded, beginning with "Morning Sun," the best and most deeply felt song on the album.
