    For myself it's just Robbie's comeback to the biggest of them all. An Instant classic like Candy or superb Different and full of energy Hey Wow Yeah Yeah makes that album not a perfect but very-good in my opinion. Welcome back Robbie!

    I got high expectations after hearing the leading-in but it only got worse afterwards. In fact, 'Take The Crown' is just as bad as Robbie's prior album. When he sings about **** On The Radio' he shows that he is making exactly that and 'Hey Wow Yeah Yeah' is just as terrible as its title. The LP has some bright spots but all in all, it's not worth listening.

    "Take The Crown" it's just as good as he previously album "Reality Killed The Video Star" very consistent and coherent. It''s probally his most funny album, with funny songs like "Candy" and "Hey Wow Yeah Yeah". It all works when you listen the album, the songs have a really good connection.

    When i first heard the album i didn't get it....it all sounded like a mess, specially songs like "Hey Wow Yeah Yeah" and "S*it On The Radio". After 5 or 6 times this songs actually became pretty funny, but nothing compared to other works like "Last Days Of Disco", from the Reality album. There are also masterpieces like "Into the Silence" and "Different". In the end its a good pop album, still there are other Robbie's albums so much better than this one. Collapse

    Even with that less-consistent Side B in mind, there's still no denying that Take the Crown remains the most wildly entertaining album Robbie Williams has released in years, unabashedly broad in appeal but immaculately well-crafted, at times even rivaling Williams' best work.

    It's safe, something of a retreat from past endeavours to a sound more suited to commercial returns in the present.

    Take The Crown plays it safe. [Dec 2012, p.85]
