Williams might be a throwback, but he doesn't do things by the numbers. He puts a lush string arrangement up against hard-hitting drum machines in "Supreme Amour," fluctuates between crooning and rapping in "Kids," and slows things down for the acoustic "If It's Hurting You." Bigger is better for Williams, who's got harmonicas wailing in "Forever Texas," guitars cranking in "Let Your Love Be Your Energy," and old-school synthesizers soaring in "Rock DJ." There's plenty of other radio-friendly material here, too -- all of which is so expertly written and performed, it proves that, even if he doesn't make it here, Williams still has the right to brag.
