Image of Robbie Williams


Out of all the members of Take That, Robbie Williams never really seemed to fit in. Roguishly handsome where his bandmates were merely cute, Williams was tougher and sexier than the rest, which made him more distinctive. He also fought regularly with the other members and their management, primarily because he was occasionally adverse to being so heavily packaged. So it didn't come as a ...

Product Description

Williams,Robbie ~ Ego Has Landed

Robbie Williams was a teenage pop star in the U.K. as a member of Take That (think New Kids on the Block); his first solo album, Life Thru a Lens, tanked--until the single "Angels" was released and became a mega-hit. His follow-up album, I've Been Expecting You, spawned more hits--"Millennium," "Let Me Entertain You"--and, somewhat unexpectedly, transformed Williams from prefab pop star to artist. The Ego Has Landed, his U.S. debut, collects songs from his two prior British releases and lives up to the hype. Though he's still somewhat prefabricated, borrowing wholesale from Oasis (whose Liam Gallagher was an idol of Williams's), George Michael, the Pet Shop Boys (whose Neil Tennant cowrote and sings backup on "No Regrets"), and even Tom Jones, Williams injects plenty of his own personality--brash and bold but rarely bratty. He's a born entertainer, plain and simple--"Let Me Entertain You," which would fit in well on Tommy, is plenty campy but only somewhat tongue-in-cheek, and he makes no apologies for it. The one caveat here is that the album is front-loaded, with all of the hits coming in the first half--but there's also a good chance that you won't mind. --Randy Silver

Customer Reviews

Too many good songs to talk about.
Jerry D Van Allen Jr
In today's pre-fabricated and, ahem, downright corporate music scene, rare is the pop album that can affect the jaded listener.
M. D. Lewis
This album is one of the two best CDs of last year, along with Moby's masterpiece Play.

I only became aware of Robbie Williams a few short weeks ago, when I caught a snippet of him performing a song on VH1. Looking to try/buy some new music from an artist I'd not heard before, I picked up William's latest. Wow. This CD is simply great. I'm not aware of Williams' background but he certainly learned how to write songs with HOOKS. I love almost every song on this CD. "Lazy Days" starts the music out on a great note, this is currently my favorite song. "Millenium", "No Regrets" and "Strong" are all very fine. "Angels" is a beautiful ballad and "Let Me Entertain You" is a wild, loud rocker that will more than remind you of Elton John is his hey-day just a bit. All the rest of the songs are worthy of mention, but I'd just be repeating the word: great too often. There is, in my opinion, not one weak song on this collection of 14 songs. THAT is quite an accomplishment. I've been playing this CD almost non-stop since I bought it. In an age when artists put out collections where you can find two or three songs you really like, Robbie manages to pull it off FOURTEEN times. This one is not to be missed!

In today's pre-fabricated and, ahem, downright corporate music scene, rare is the pop album that can affect the jaded listener. Rarer still is the pop artist who actually can entertain, both on-stage and off. Rarest of all are pop albums whose every constitutent could be spun off into massive singles of excellent quality.
Robbie Williams and his "The Ego Has Landed", a compilation of two UK albums, are exceptions to the afore-mentioned rules. Granted, perhaps this album works so effectively because it casts off some of the filler from his two UK-only releases, but that's a small detail. Recent pop music hasn't seen much better than the likes of the balladry heard on "Angels" and "She's The One", the sheer brilliance of "No Regrets", and even straight-ahead Oasis-type rockers "Lazy Days" and "Old Before I Die" - not to mention the general insouciance of "Man Machine" and "Let Me Entertain You", which offer the perfect antidote to the dancing moppets that provide most current pop. Even the weaker tracks lyrically here ("Millennium", the one single US listeners may actually have heard) deliver on the musical level - the incorporation of the strings from "You Only Live Twice" is nothing short of sheer brilliance (well, at least in my book).
Maybe Robbie will never get the airplay he deserves in the US, but this is perhaps because one cannot classify what he does under one single category, which seems to be what one needs to get chart positioning. Nonetheless, this is nothing to be ashamed of - who wants to be on the same chart as some of the currently popular US acts? This is a brilliant album with something to offer every listener, and one that will remain in a multi-disc player for quite some time - proof positive, I would say, that "pop music" need not be a derogatory term...some of the time, at least.

If there is any indication that America needs a wake up call musically, here is the CD that does it!! Robbie Williams is basically a God in the U.K. (It's Robbiemania over there!) Now, you know why. This CD rocks unlike any other I have ever listened to. I play "The Ego Has Landed" 24-7 in my player, I listen to it at work constantly, much to the irritation of my fellow co-workers. Even they are now humming to every song, it's so infectious. It's such a rarity nowadays that every track is killer, and shows that America needs to take a listen to this music 'cause the scene here is pretty damn boring if you ask me (and you did, since you said write your own review!) "Millenium" has a great riff (James Bond, anyone?) "Lazy Days" has an wonderful sentiment, (I love the line: "The world can change in a second, so I find the sunshine beckons me to open up the gate and dream".) "One of God's Better People" was written for Rob's Mum, cheers to Rob for putting it on the CD. "Let Me Entertain You" is the flashiest, trashiest song on the CD, with shades of The Who (yeah,baby) and the late, great Freddie Mercury of Queen. The bonus track (at 13:40) is great on two levels: One, our Robert rails at a teacher who made his life miserable (we can all relate that, can't we?) Two, I love his accent, he sounds so innocent. Yeah, and Rome was built in a day, too. If the music isn't enough to turn your head, then look at a picture of him! He is absoutely mega-cute. O.K. Enough praising, just buy the bloody CD, wouldja? You will have "NO REGRETS".
P.S. I wish him much success, he deserves it. Rob is mad for it in concert, too. DO NOT MISS HIM LIVE!!! You have not LIVED until you do!

Having just watched Robbie Williams live concert at London's Royal Albert Hall on Saturday evening, I just felt I had to come on line and give you all a review of his only US release so far. Robbie Williams formerly of Boy band Take That graduated to the forefront of the British music scene with his single "Angels" and has never looked back since. Several number ones and many many hits later he is not only established as a credible singer/songwriter, he is quite simple Britain's biggest and brightest star. He regularly plays to sold out stadiums and arena's around the world and the only two nuts he still has to crack are America and movies. For both it is only hopefully a matter of time because he is the ultimate showman and a modern rarity, an allround entertainer. Even Elton John has said so (but don't let that put you off)!
Robbie Williams cd "The Ego Has Landed" is an amalgamation of his first two UK album releases "Life Thru' A Lens" and "I've Been Expecting You" which is no bad thing. Basically what you are getting here are the best bits (14 tracks) of his first two albums with the usual and inevitable couple of weaker tracks removed. In other words this is a very good album which includes eight UK top ten singles and two UK number 1's. My favourite tracks are "Angels" (which has become something of an anthem in this country, everybody knows the words), "No Regrets" and "She's The One" but no doubt you'll have different favourites. "The Ego Has Landed" refers to Robbie's sometimes brash public statements about himself, which if you take at face value suggest that he is a bit of an ego-maniac.
