This Compilation, of RW's first 2 UK cds, is good, but doesn'ttotally work. You are much better off, seeking the 2 original cds. There is way too many key tracks missing.

One of the best CDs I've heard in years

"I only became aware of Robbie Williams a few short weeks ago, when I caught a snippet of him performing a song on VH1. Looking to try/buy some new music from an artist I'd not heard before, I picked up William's latest. Wow. This CD is simply great. I'm not aware of Williams' background but he certainly learned how to write songs with HOOKS. I love almost every song on this CD. "Lazy Days" starts the music out on a great note, this is currently my favorite song. "Millenium", "No Regrets" and "Strong" are all very fine. "Angels" is a beautiful ballad and "Let Me Entertain You" is a wild, loud rocker that will more than remind you of Elton John is his hey-day just a bit. All the rest of the songs are worthy of mention, but I'd just be repeating the word: great too often. There is, in my opinion, not one weak song on this collection of 14 songs. THAT is quite an accomplishment. I've been playing this CD almost non-stop since I bought it. In an age when artists put out collections where you can find two or three songs you really like, Robbie manages to pull it off FOURTEEN times. This one is not to be missed!"

"Having just watched Robbie Williams live concert at London's Royal Albert Hall on Saturday evening, I just felt I had to come on line and give you all a review of his only US release so far. Robbie Williams formerly of Boy band Take That graduated to the forefront of the British music scene with his single "Angels" and has never looked back since. Several number ones and many many hits later he is not only established as a credible singer/songwriter, he is quite simple Britain's biggest and brightest star. He regularly plays to sold out stadiums and arena's around the world and the only two nuts he still has to crack are America and movies. For both it is only hopefully a matter of time because he is the ultimate showman and a modern rarity, an allround entertainer. Even Elton John has said so (but don't let that put you off)! Robbie Williams cd "The Ego Has Landed" is an amalgamation of his first two UK album releases "Life Thru' A Lens" and "I've Been Expecting You" which is no bad thing. Basically what you are getting here are the best bits (14 tracks) of his first two albums with the usual and inevitable couple of weaker tracks removed. In other words this is a very good album which includes eight UK top ten singles and two UK number 1's. My favourite tracks are "Angels" (which has become something of an anthem in this country, everybody knows the words), "No Regrets" and "She's The One" but no doubt you'll have different favourites. "The Ego Has Landed" refers to Robbie's sometimes brash public statements about himself, which if you take at face value suggest that he is a bit of an ego-maniac. However, despite much of his rhetoric, he is in fact quite the opposite and has in the past turned to both booze and drugs to conquer his fears and self-doubt. Thankfully he seems to have conquered both or we would have been deprived of the world's greatest showman. For he really is that good and if you don't believe me you have to watch his videos and see him live. Still cynical? So was I until I saw him perform live at a festival a few years ago, alongside Indie bands such as the Prodigy, and steal the show from what should have been a hostile audience for a pop performer. Since then I've tried to buy tickets to see him live on several occasions but such is his popularity and reputation for putting on a great live show they are always sold out in hours.His last hit album in the UK was the massive selling "Sing When You're Winning" and in typical Robbie style his new album out here now is the similarly titled Swing When You're Winning, an astonishing album of vintage classics from the '50s, originally sung by Robbie's heroes, namely, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jnr and of course, the legendary Frank Sinatra. Swing When You're Winning features several duets, including the first single from the album; the unmissable 'Somethin' Stupid', recorded with Nicole Kidman (check out the ace and slightly raunchy video) and thanks to the miracle of modern technology, a duet with Frank Sinatra himself. Now that's class. Take my advice, buy "The Ego Has Landed", import "Sing When You're Winning" and "Swing When You're Winning" and check out the videos from 1998's Millenium onwards and see if you can get his concerts on video or DVD. The guy has got a great sense of humour, a great sense of style and a great deal of class. America, you don't know what you are missing!!!"
