Robbie to do us a favour?

Robbie Williams has said he feels like has overstayed his welcome with his UK fans and it's time for him to flee the country and live in LA for a while, so his fans can get him out there heads.

Robbie says: "Back home, I feel like I've overstayed my welcome a little bit. "I've enjoyed tremendous success for over ten years now - far more than I should have or I ever would have dreamed I'd have. And now it's the time for Robbie to go away in people's minds. I think it's time to not be in Britain for a bit."

There you see he's not all bad, now if only wetlife could take a leaf out of his book, we might start to see some decent music in the UK charts again!

He already lives in LA.

At least I thought so.

Robbie hasn't had a decent album in a while. It's a shame when you think that he's capable of great pop songs like Angels and Let Me Entertain You.

Agreed.

And this is also magnified by how good the current Take That single is.

As Interferences biggest Take That fan, i'd love robbie to swallow his pride and rejoin the boys. His solo career has been in decline for a while now and his old band are back and showing the kids how to make great pop music once again.

So, in essence, my message to robbie is this - rejoin Take That or fuck off to america. It's his call.

Sadly, I used to enjoy Robbie Williams once upon a time.

I liked his first albums, with songs like Let me entertain you, no regrets, karma killer, it's only us, phoenix,.. I bought 'intensive care', but I'm not a big fan of it. And I didn't bother to buy his latest album.

Radio; Feel; Trippin', Rudebox, the Lovelight cover; Sin Sin Sin... I think that these are very good pop songs. They're just different. Angels is in the past, he's not gonna make another one.

What's with the Robbie non-love?? I saw Robbie live a couple of weeks ago, and seriously, if U2 hadn't just toured, he would've got Concert of the Year from me!! It was effin brilliant!!!! *

And I like the new stuff

*his concerts sold out faster in Aust than U2, fact fans.

I saw Robbie last night in Melbourne - last night of his tour. A few thoughts - musically there was a certain 'sameness' to the newer stuff - 'Intensive Care' was a pretty lacklustre album, following the just 'OK-ness' of 'Escapology'. Rob is fastly becoming the kind of act that has great singles but cant put together a decent album. That is sad as 'Sing' and 'Life Thru A Lens' were amazing albums. (He only performed 'Rudebox' off the new album - not even 'Lovelight' last night - that shitted me off as there are some good tracks on that album that could be good on stage.)

Live - however - he is a hell of a force. He broke the venue record for the Telstra Dome in Melbourne (reported 64,127) on Sunday night, just to bust it wide open again last night (reported 66,540). He is a global draw - and even though 'Rudebox' has been slated, 3 million+ sales globally in 8 weeks is far from a decline.

But by saying that he seems tired - and even bored onstage. Rob needs to piss off for a couple of years and then have another crack at it.

As for rejoining Take That - he made a comment last night that at his age he just doesn't want to sing and dance to 'Could It Be Magic' for 5 minutes a few times a week. He only sung lead on 2 Take That songs - so fair point. He also wished them the best and told the audience off for not making 'Patience' a big hit here.

He used to be cool until he got up his own crack.

Sorry - can't agree with this, I saw Robbie on his Close Encounters tour here a couple of weeks ago and it was AWESOME!!!!!! 60,000 people just going nuts. Perhaps he could move to Australia, we sure all love him here!!

I know his new album isn't like 'Angels' - but what is wrong with taking a new direction and trying something new every now and then. I'm sure we'd all be complaining if he was just churning out identical albums one after the other!
