    Default Any Robbie Williams or Take That fans on here?

    Robbie's new album "The Heavy Entertainment Show" is up there with "Escapology" as one of his very best and is a real return to form.

    Any fans?

    Yeah I like Robbie (in small doses) and impressed by the new stuff.

    Only time he ever pissed me off (and it wasn't his fault) was at the end of the 1990s when ll the polls for best artist/male of the millenium were out and he was at the top of his game so he was winning over MJ, Elvis, Prince etc.

    He's overdone the comedy/fool stuff though, he doesn't need to do that. He's a good songwriter & singer.

    Haven't bought an album since Escapology though but have them all until then.

    Not a huge fan of Angels though (so overplayed!), so my faves are No Regrets, Feel, Kids, Strong, Come Undone

    In regards to Take That. Like them also, especially the comeback stuff such as Shine, Patience & Rule The World plus the obvious boyband stuff such as Sure. Barlow is a great songwriter.

    Tripping is a phenomenal pop song. I know a good lot of his hits, and I enjoy Rock DJ, but Tripping, Feel and Kids would be my favourites.

    As a fella, he irritates the bejesus out of me.

    No force of nature can break your will to self motivate.

    Lol. Guys tend to hate Robbie, probably because all their girlfriends fancy him.

    Correction, USED to fancy him! Jason was always my favourite!

    Seriously though, Robbie is hit and miss for me. He had some great singles. I almost bought the new album but frankly I fancied a meal deal and magazine that day!

    I own everything up to In & Out Of Consciousness but he fell off for me after that. I loved Life Thru A Lens, I've Been Expecting You and the Escapology album. I even liked Rudebox.

    I prefer Take That though! Saw their Circus Tour twice it was so good and Progress too although they sort of handed everything to Robbie on that tour and their entrance was disappointing. They simply just walked onto the stage! I mean come on! Robbie on the other hand descended from the rafters with pyro technics!

    Beautiful World and The Circus are great. Not really feeling them as a three or III or whatever they go by now but they always deliver a great tune.

    The Circus was a great album/tour and they sort of reached a peak for me at that point. Although The Flood was a good single I didn't really like Progress and the tour although a good spectacle wasn't as good as The Circus.

    I thought SOS & Kidz on Progress were great singles.

    Hmmm, I just think the spark that Beautiful World and The Circus had wasn't there. I sort of prefered them as a 4-piece.

    Robbie's new album really is fantastic. There's a gorgeous song on it called David's Song, which I think is the most beautiful song he's ever done.

    Yes, I have. Sadly it's just okay. A little disappointing in fact. Album lacks the big singles. More just a collection of songs with the odd few standing out. No John Shanks and it shows. For me lll was far better. Bonus tracks on lll were outstanding. Production on Believe was unreal. So damn shocked that this album is so underwhelming. Feels like the first time since their comeback where the wheels have really come off. I guess it was bound to happen sooner or later.

    Yeah, I have. Feeling they'll split again after this. Gary seems really busy with other stuff and it seems like this was thrown together quickly.
