Editorial Reviews

Definitive hits collection on 2 CDs plus an additional 3rd disc of b-sides and rarities, all in a 20-page casebound book package.


Includes the brand new single "Shame", co-written with Gary Barlow. The single marks the first time the two superstars have ever recorded and performed a duet together, and the first time they have written and recorded a song together since Robbie's departure from Take That in 1995.


With a staggering 57 million album sales and 11 million singles sold, Robbie Williams has been breaking records over the course of his whole career. 7 No 1 UK albums meant he is easily the biggest selling solo artist in UK history, a fact reinforced by his 2010 Brit Award for Outstanding Contribution To Music. In fact, with a tally of 16, he has won more Brits than any other artist since the awards began, including "Angels" being voted the best single of the last 25 years. A plethora of other record-breaking awards include a Guinness World Record for fastest ever ticket sales, coupled with the honor of playing the largest open-air concert in UK history, at Knebworth in 2003 have meant that his status as a live performer has equalled his massive achievements as a recording artist.


Robbie Williams said: "It's incredible to listen to the album and realize that it s already been 20 years of making music and playing gigs. And the great thing about the album is that it's not only a celebration of my past but also a bridge to the future. The fact that part of the future includes a name from my past makes it all the more poignant for me".

(Note: This review is for the 6-Disc Ultimate Edition. It was written when the reviews for all 3 editions were merged together, for some reason amazon moved my review to one of the other editions)

Being a big fan of Robert Williams, I was extremely excited at the idea of him releasing a career-spanning comprehensive collection of hits, music videos and b-sides. Already having released his first Greatest Hits album back in 2004 which spanned his first 5 studio albums, Robbie now brings us In And Out Of Consciousness, which oversees all of those albums as well as his 3 albums since. And while Greatest Hits omitted some of his singles, this new collection includes ALL of his solo UK singles to date. The first 2 CD's contain 39 tracks including 2 new songs, "Shame" (UK Peak Position #2) and "Heart and I", as well as his rare first solo single "Freedom" (UK Peak Position #2), which was a cover of the George Michael song. Robbie's version had been previously unreleased on any album until now) and a sole track from his original tenure with Take That ("Everything Changes" (UK #1)).

The songs on the first 2 discs run in reverse chronological order, starting with the 2 new songs, then from the newest hits to the older classics.

From Robbie's 1997 debut solo album, LIFE THRU A LENS, the singles "Old Before I Die" (UK #2), "Lazy Days" (UK #8), "South Of The Border (UK #14), "Angels" (UK #4), and "Let Me Entertain You" (UK #3) are included. The songs showcase the rock-n-roll / pop beginning of Robbie's career, with "Angels" being his signature song.

Creating a greatest hits album is already problematic, as invariably someone will complain there's been something left out. When Robbie Williams came out with his first greatest hits album about 6 years ago, it was a single disc album, that arguably contained the necessary singles, but was nothing I'd recomend to get into the artist. This album is different. In & Out of consciousness is a perfect summary of his career, and an even better introduction to those unfamiliar with Robbie Williams carreer. Unlike most greatest hits album, this album has a good progression, feeling almost like your taking a step back through his carreer with him. The album starts with a pair of new songs, both co-written by former band mate (and former rival) Gary Barlow. Both songs are very good, and fit comfortably within the Robbie Williams cannon. Thereafter, the album proceeds from album to album, from newest to oldest, carefully balancing the fast paced songs with the ballads. The album takes you through his more recent experimental songs, to his forray into swing music, to the biggest pop star in europe early days, and even includes his first single (not on any album) freedom, and even a take that song. Its a pleasure to listen to the whole way through, and the best introduction to Robbie's carrier I could think. Highly recomended.

I have to first start off by saying that I am happy and pleased with the number of hits that are included in this collection of Robbie William's Hits. The songs that stood out for me the most are:
1)She's the One-A great track on what it feels like to be with someone that is like your twin soul. He recently found true love with US model and actress Ayda Field (Robbie married her at his Los Angeles mansion in the summer of 2010) (I saw a picture of them on a bbc website, they are a cute couple). The point that I am making is that because he has found true love that the title "She's the One" has come to be the real-life connection to his great musical art.
2)Rock DJ- A great song about having fun, and making the best of your life regardless of where in your journey that you are.
3)Millenium- A song that symbolizes taking inventory of where a person is in their life while an abundance of time is available.
4)Angels- A beautiful song about enjoying the company of kind people (symbolized by the lyrics I'm loving angels instead).
5)Do Me Now- A catchy song about the many fascinating things that he is interested in, but that although he has many interest, that in the now moment it is more important to him to seize the moment and have fun.
6)Feel- A beautiful song about experiencing passionate and happy love. His music video has him playing a rodeo star, and Hannah plays as his love interest. I love both the video and the song to "Feel". I admit that I thought that Robbie Willliams looked very handsome in the "Feel" video. However, his quality lyrics and strong singing expressed in "Feel" proves that he is much more than just an attractive face(and that Robbie truly has the gift of singing great songs).

5 stars for almost everything, such as Robbie himself, all the singles released from his solo career and also all the music videos but why the songs is censored ?

Another thing is the selling price from Amazon is too high !!! I bought the ultimate edition with USD80.97 including delivery charges and sadly i found this item in my country, the selling price is only USD38, what a rip off.

PAL or NTSC
I believe all copies are imported from Europe with region 0 PAL. Not sure if region 0's play on all players or not. I don't think there is a USA pressed NTSC version yet.
