I like the original Sexed up version a lot more. It was a b-side from one of his 'Ivé been expecting you' singles from 1998, I don't know which one.

I think Escapology is his best album, Life thru a lens close (more britpop). As for Rudebox, I still don't know what to think about it. A couple of songs are just great (rudebox, lovelight, were the pet shop boys, kiss), but others are not even worth a listen...

I like Robbie, great vocalist, great showman ... I'm more into his ballads, my favs are Angels and Advertising Space. Not so much into his newer stuff.

I like Robbie alot, he's such a charismatic singer, I think one of the best the UK's produced in recent times. He's big all over the world with the exception of America. He just can't seem to crack it, despite trying very hard and I think he's given up now. Anyway Sexed Up is great, it does capture that feeling of two people who have just reached the end with each other and its simpler and less painful to just break-up, my favourite lyric is:

'Why don't we talk about it, I'm only here don't shout it'

But I also like Better Man, Let Love Be Your Energy, Supreme, Love Somebody, Misunderstood, Song 3 and of course Angels. I keep thinking about buying his latest album but never get around to it, it didn't do too well with the critics or the public so I'm undecided.

I'll never understand why he hasn't hit big in America.

'Rudebox' is OK - he went out on a limb, and it didn't 100% payoff. There is gold in there though - 'Lovelight', 'Summertime', 'The 90's', 'She's Madonna'...

'Escapology' would be the Robbie CD I'd give a first time listener though - 'Feel', 'Come Undone', 'Hot Fudge', 'Handsome Man'...

Personally I can't go past 'I've Been Expecting You' - 'Phoenix From The Flames' and 'No Regrets' - genius... However 'Let Love Be Your Energy' is my all time fave Robbie track.

I have The Ego Has Landed, which is chock full o' good pop hits, and a couple of great ones (Let Me Entertain You, Angels and Millennium). Then I got his greatest hits CD, and I was kind of disappointed.

If I find a cheap(ish) used copy of Rudebox, I may pick it up out of curiosity.

I think Ego is really good, but the three big hits are all on the greatest hits CD, so ... I dunno. Pick it up if you find a cheap, used copy.

when I saw him on Live 8 (on the live feed, it doesn't translates well to the DVD), when he begins with LET ME ENTERTAIN YOU, the crowd goes absolutely ballistic... it was amazing...


that's a great song

and ADVERTISING SPACE is the best Elvis tribute song I've ever heard--

Oooh, I also love Trippin' from Intensive Care.

That's one of those songs where the verses aren't much special, but the chorus is great.
