Not absolutely certain if it's Robbie, though, since his low approach has never been anything like that until supposedly now.



The lower 'harmony' at 0:46 - 0:51 is supposed to bottom at E2. My low pitching is complete ass, though, so I'd love a second opinion.

I hear something buried in the A2 area. the whole pitchness of this song is pretty annoying and tricky considering the vocals don't sound like perfect pitch and half of it is whispery and blurry and not to mention the scale that is fucking weird and not uniform. but I think on 0:40 he goes G#2-F2; listen up cause it's a red light. so I'd go with F2 as the lowest yeah. I think there's another F2 in the backing on 1:58

F2 would be more relevant to composition of the song, so yeah, we'll go with that.

Good to see this thread getting a re-vamp Thumb up Robbie's one of the best voices of the 90's boyband era, and one who has managed to make a pretty diverse and long-lasting solo career. Growing up British in the last 20 years could almost be condensed down to the chorus of "Angels" and watching "Robot Wars" on a Friday night.
