Viva Life on Mars
Bongo Bong and Je Ne T'aime Plus
Never Touch That Switch
We're The Pet Shop Boys
'Rudebox' is Robbie's seventh studio album, and is sure to add to his album sales which already top 45 million worldwide. Moving away from his usual ballads and uptempo pop songs, Williams experiments with a fresher, hip hop sound, with suprisingly successful results. Robbie has also recruited a team of production superstars to help him hone this new sound, including Mark Ronson, William Orbit and the Pet Shop Boys. Includes the single 'Rudebox'.

One of his best - worth every penny!

I really don't get why this album got/gets bad reviews. I can understand being put off by the Rudebox single, as I think it's one of his weakest songs, but apart from that one track I can't fault this album. I'm not the biggest Rob fan in the world but credit where credit's due and I have to say that this album does it for me. It's definitely one of his best, along with the amazing "Intensive Care". Highlights for me have to be Kiss Me, She's Madonna, Lovelight, The 80's, The 90's, Summertime and Good Doctor. It's a great cd to play in the car and there's something for everyone here. And let's face it, for just over a quid, you can't go far wrong!

I thought this album was appalling at first but I kept it in the car and listened a few more times. Its a grower. After a week of listening it became my first choice to play anywhere. Friends took to it too but it took a while. If you do not have it get it - it's so cheap everywhere!!

I've been a Robbie fan all my life simply because my parents liked them, so I grew up with the rest of his material and, yes, this album is a lot different. But it rules! I don't know why I like it so much, but I enjoy every song and think Robbie's done well to break his mould and try something different. The tracks people dislike generally make me laugh, too!

One of the most under-rated albums ever!

This album got such undeserved flack from tabloids and people who never gave it a chance, purely because it sounds so different from Robbie's usual material. I wish people would open their minds and appriciate this for the truly wonderful, innovative, diverce record it is. Yes the single 'Rudebox' is clearly not a great song, and is largly to blame for the negetivity surrounding the album, but please do not be fooled by the tabloids and people who put this album down because of the single Rudebox, because you are missing out on an amazing album if you do.
There is something on this album for everyone. You have a rap/hip hop/funk sound on tracks such as Keep On, Bongo Bong (both featuring Lily Allen) Good Doctor, Dickhead, and the two tracks 'The 80's and The 90's, where Robbie sings (or talks) about his childhood, and days in Take That. It proves to all the doubters that Robbie is one of the most talented lyricists of his generation. These two tracks are two of the best he has ever released.
There is also some classic uplifting Robbie pop on there as well, with amazing songs such as Viva Life On Mars, She's Madonna (featuring the Pet Shop Boys),Kiss Me, and the amazing 'Lovelight'. As well as that there is excellent unique electro sounding tracks such as 'The Actor' (one of the best songs he has ever released), We're the Pet Shop Boys (featuring the Pet Shop Boys) and Never Touch That Switch. And there is even two excellent slower songs, Summertime, which sees Rob return to his ballad roots, and 'Burslam Normals'.
Overall, this is one of the most enjoyable and diverce albums I own. It is such a shame the tabloids and the lead single has put so many people off buying it. Pleae don't be fooled. Buy it, give it a chance and you will be pleasently suprised I am sure. And don't believe it was the disaster it is labelled as being either. It sold over 4.5m copies globally, and reached #1 in 14 countries, and as far as reviews go, it got amazing reviews from series music mags and broadsheet papers, it was mainly the tabloids who put it down. Had it sold millions in the UK, I highly doubt they would've as sales are all that matter to them.

What a pile of proverbial

Just goes to show, without the brains of a decent songwriter, Robbie is at best, hit and miss, at worse, a lightweight.
This is truly dreadful. I'm just so relieved I borrowed a copy before seeking to buy it.
