A decent singer and good live performer. I always loved the irony that after getting the boot in Take that his solo career took off like that. (in comparison to Mark's and especially Gary Barlow's solo attempts)

He's bigger than them so I see no point in re-joining them, even if for just one night. I'm assuming the rest of the guys needed the money for the reunion album/tour?

Good point that the UK people might be sick of him.

Right now I'd say that Take That are much bigger than Robbie in the UK.

I don't like his new stuff, I think it sounds awful.

Robbie is still a gun, though I don't own any of his albums.

Lovelight is a cracking single, shame it's a cover. Rudebox was interesting...

What was wrong with Intensiv Care? I thought Sin Sin Sin, Advertising Space and especially Tripping were sensational singles. The album tracks must have certainly been rather ordinary...

I'd rather see more Robbie on the charts and here more of him on the radio some of these pretentious "oh look at me i'm so wonderful i wrote a song on my own" solo artists out there...

Rudebox was a fucking AWFUL song.

But then angels is completely overrated. SICK SICK SICK of that song!

Listen to Robbies song 90's and you'll see how it all went wrong with Take That.

Anyway, could you see someone as big as an ego that Robbies got having to be in the same room as fatty fatty barlow? Never going to happen!

What's happening to RW now is more or less a mix of what happened to U2 circa 1988-1992. Americans were tired of U2 (here is the UK getting sick of RW) and the band make a revolution in its sound. You must notice that Rudebox is sightly different from what he did before. Intensive Care made that attempt but failed because it had too much boring and radio-friendly songs, this more recent album is a love-it-or-leave-it.

Personally I think Robbie's downfall started when he stopped working with Guy Chambers. His stuff post-Chambers has been medicore at best IMO. The British media turning against him (The Mirror in particular) and the revival of Take That (Patience is a brilliant pop song) also count against him but he does have a very large and loyal fanbase so I wouldn't write off Throbbie just yet.

It was just.. lazy. The singles (and arguably 'Make Me Pure') are awesome tracks - however 'A Place To Crash', 'Your Gay Friend' and 'The Trouble With Me' are awful stabs at 80's soft rock. Dire crap. Worse is I really rate Stephen Tuffy as a songwriter - but together the glimours of greatness were (are?) few and far between. 'Radio' worked as it was just off the fucking wall, but the other stuff they've done is patchy.

I have to agree, that's what I disliked in Intensive Care, after RW claiming that this album would be in his career the same turning point as AB was in U2.
I dislike "Your gay friend" and "The trouble with me", and why the hell did he put "Ghosts" as opening track? That track should be the closer or before the closer.
Anyway, there are a bunch of great songs like the great-beat "Trippin'", the cool "Sin sin sin", and "Advertising space" that is very enjoyable.
