I defy anyone to tell me that they haven't heard of Robbie Williams. Former member of the hugely successful boy band, Take That, the cheeky chappy from Manchester left in 1995 to go solo. He went on to record one of the most popular songs (especially at Weddings) of all time: 'Angels'...

Escapology: The critics called it stale, the fans loved it but then true fans of an artist will often accept inferior quality just because they love the artist so much. What did you think of it? Well here is the album explained along with my opinion, not as a Robbie fan but as a music fan. This...

ConsI can't say much for the rest, a bit messy

Where do you start with someone the likes of Robbie Williams? Perhaps he may not be as the most eccentric character we've ever seen on our screens, that would probably go to someone along the lines of pouty-lips Pete Burns, but Robbie (hey I can call him by his first name and pretend I know him...

ConsWell you do hear a lot about Drugs in the songs......

Hello and welcome to my review on the Robbie Williams CD of Escapology. The PA version of Escapology, what music to my ears, I have always thought that the explicit versions of albums are so much better than the regular versions. Why? Simple because of the fact that you get to hear Robbie...

“How peculiar”

published 20/06/2006

ProTwelve amazingly great songs

ConsOne dodgy track and one that I just can't stand!

Robbie Williams. Should I really bother with this album explaining who the singer is? Maybe some would say not, as we can assume everyone knows, but hey assumptions can be wrong. Robbie Williams was a member of a massive boy band called Take That. He left, then they split. From Take that, most...

ConsToo much about Robbie!

I feel a little embarrassed to admit this but like many girls of my age, I was a Take That fan. Yes, I had all of the albums, and yes, I knew every world to every song (stop laughing!). However, one person always stood out to me…Robbie Williams. His effortless showmanship and cheeky bad boy...

“The near-great Escape”

published 23/07/2003

ProYou might like it

ConsI over analyse everything, it's a big op

It may come as a surprise to you, it did to me, but I like Robbie Williams. Up to now, after dismissing him for being a boy band choice cut (piece of meat) at first, I have enjoyed most of his work, Rock DJ being my least favourite track. Some of his songs have been clearly influenced by his...

Consrobbie's ego, same taste in music as my mum :oS

Escapology would probably have to be my Desert Island CD. You know - the one cd you would take with you to listen to day in, day out if you were deserted on a remote island with nothing but the clothes on your back (and this robbie cd, of course) and no hope of ever returning home (i'm assuming...

ConsToo much pubrock

Robbies fifth album in 2003 features a number of reasonably decent songs. I'm not his biggest fan, but there are some really good songs on here, which I think will stand the test of time better than we perhaps appreciate nowadays. For those who have been living on Mars for the last 15 years...

Yes people I hold my head up high and I'm proud to say I am a huge Robbie Williams fan. I was standing outside my local Woolworths at 9o'clock, the day this album was released because I had to be one of the first people to purchase it, and at 9 minutes past 9 the album was firmly in my grasp.

“The Robster Ego has Landed”

published 16/06/2003

ProAn album that will be played over and over

ConsOne naff track

Love him or hate him, you have to admit that Robbie Williams is talented. Before I go any further, I have to say that as a person I think he is an arrogant little turd, but after buying Escapology, I have appreciated his music more than I ever have done before. Robbie first came into our lives...

Robbie Williams – Escapology If you’re the kind of person that reads into things, and tries to look between the lines, then you’d pick up on the fact that the title of the new album could show us that Robbie is trying to escape the poppy, post-Take That music which we have seen so much of. If...

Robbie Williams is a man who is continually in the news, whether it is claims he actually did the deed with Nicole Kidman, or his current relationship with Rachel Hunter, and many people were starting to doubt his longevity, and he was starting to become infamous. For this reason, I think that...
