Robbie Williams?

He sucks? He rules? What are your thoughts?

Personally, I do not like his too-extroverted personality, for lack of better words but I have to recognize that he is talented and has a good voice. And I am surprised that he has not caught on more in the U.S. (I guess we are too busy with all that rap crap).

As a matter of fact, I am thinking of picking up his Greatest Hits CD when it gets released in the U.S.

I like RW very much, actually from the beginning, since he left take that. His first album Life thru a lens really rocks! Now he's more pop than rock but I think everybody has to buy 'Escapology'. This album is even better than his greatest hits album.

Yes, but he doesn't want to break US.

I have one of his albums - called I've been expecting you.
He has a nice voice and overall nice lyrics, IMO he should be what that Timberlake guy is in terms of worldwide popularity. Also extremely witty in interviews and a good entertainer.

I don't rate Robbie I'm afraid. I think the guy has serious issues. I know there's a place in music for well crafted pop tunes but the Pet Shop Boys did it so much better in the '80s.

Don't know much about him personality-wise, but I like what I've heard by him thus far ("Angels", "Millenium", and that "Rock DJ" song, even if the video for it WAS gross...). And I like that "Back For Good" song that he did with Take That.

I love Robbie. I doubt his GH CD will be released in the US. Therefore I ordered it from the UK. His songs are very catchy and very much pop. But he recently parted ways with his main songwriter from the past couple of years, Guy Chambers. On the GH CD, he does have 2 new songs and both of them were co-written by Stephen "Tin Tin" Duffy. The song "Radio" has a very 80's pop feel to it. I absolutely love it! And "Misunderstood" is pretty good too and it's on the new Bridget Jones soundtrack. So if he sticks with Stephen as a co-writer, I think I will love his new stuff!

I like "Monsoon" and "Feel". I have his greatest hits. I imagine hes pretty dynamic live. He is, as has been mentioned, quite the character.

PS I didnt know that about Stephen Duffy. I didnt know he was still around

the escapology album is far the best, sometimes it's very rock. my favourites are monsoon, hot fudge, how peculiar (all esca..) and radio.
