"I had never heard of RW until in NYC recently. Attended his sold out concert and fast became a fan. Subsequently purchased Ego. He is a terrific entertainer but listening only is entertaining and soulful as well.Highly recommend this young man's music."

"Good and bad on this expensive import. Robbie needs to decide what he wants to be when he grows up: pop legend or the next Tom Jones. I hope he goes for the latter, since he is his most charming when playing the balladeer and showman, instead of making very irritating dance mixes (the last two tracks are unlistenable). Robbie's medley with Tom Jones is incredibly entertaining and shows that he'll be able to cash in in Vegas show business once his pop star days are over. The punk rock chorus of Back for Good is another highlight. Angels acoustic version is so much more emotional and memorable than the pop/rock ballad version--the orchestra heightens the sadness of the lyrics. Cheap Love Song is just a fun pop song."
Robbie is Hot!

"The ego has landed is great. Robbie is a terrific entertainer. There aren't any "weak" songs on his CD. I highly recommend it! He's also extremely adorable!"
