    This album sucks. Robbie Williams is about as authentic as a cheap Rolex bought on the streets of Bangkok. Some of the lyrics are laughably self-obsessed, and the music is about as middle of the road and bland as you can get.

    I'm a big fan of Robbie Williams and British pop in general, but this cd is truly painful to listen to. Very disappointing.

    i love the ways brits are always running down the yanks for not "getting" their sophisticated brand of humour... as an outsider, i don't think robbie williams is funny, or clever... he's just a singer of no substance with bland songs culled from decades of retro pop, dressed up in slick modern production... oh and for everyone who keeps on harping on the sarcasm angle, it i love the ways brits are always running down the yanks for not "getting" their sophisticated brand of humour... as an outsider, i don't think robbie williams is funny, or clever... he's just a singer of no substance with bland songs culled from decades of retro pop, dressed up in slick modern production... oh and for everyone who keeps on harping on the sarcasm angle, it happens to be the lowest form of wit... and robbie isn't even very good at it...

  1. It doesn't help that the best song here, "Feel," sounds like a bad Richard Ashcroft B-side; the worst is a seven-minute mariachi stomp about traveling to Las Vegas with a monkey, called "Me and My Monkey."
  2. Backed by stale songs, formulaic arrangements, and mediocre songwriting, Williams is forced to rely on his volcanic personality to bring this album across -- and despite a few strong performances, he sinks into lame self-parody time and time again.
  3. Probably the weakest Robbie Williams album to date.
