Robbies rapping at the beginning of Rock DJ was novel as it was new for Robbie and the the song still had a good hook and tune.

This attempt at Electro Rap left me completely baffled!, Robbies rapping on it sounds really bored, contrived and is delivered very unconvincingly (surprising as Robbie has said that this is from his best album ever. The lyrics are also nonsecial. Heres a few lines:

"tk max costs les -yes

Jackson looks a mess - Bless"

"Ok bum rush the show i got high speed dubbing on my stereo and all the tunes in the box are the cherrio"

"I did it like this you did it like that i love it when you double clap clap"

inspired stuff eh?

The whole package sounds like it was created on a synthesiser in Robbies bedroom, and in all fairness as a musician i can replicate this on a good pc and a £250 software package.

Robbie has showed that he can handle a great range of songs from pop to ballards to swing. This move into Electro rap though is very unconvincing and is into a genre too far. Robbie has made a career out of ballard themes, but this is terribly outta place, kinda like if Eminem covered Angels.

Robbie is clearly bored and looking to change music directions. Unfortuantely some people and there voices are best suited to certain genres and just like Elton John would be out of place with Gangsta Rap, so is Robbie and his Stoke accent on this.

I really WANTED to like this and even though im a 25 y.o bloke i like Robbie's stuff, but i feel that if it wasn't for Robbie's star power then this type of amateur bilge (complete with awful video) wouldn't even get airplay. If the rest of the Album is this bad, god help us and the airwaves!

Probably the funniest song to ever be released. Pure comedy gold!

At first you'll hate it but when the chorus hits your ears you'll be in awe!

Featuring parodys from all of the 'urban' songs of the last year including Pharrell and Gwen Stefani!

A mockery of modern music that still sounds amazing!

I think this is one of the best songs Robbie's done. It's quirky and different and really upbeat. Am loving it.

The fact that this charted at all just goes to show what idiots Robbie Williams' fan base are.

Seriously, isn't this really an experiment just to see how blindly his fans will buy anything he does?

With the most basic lyrics and over-produced music, Robbie Williams has finally teetered over the edge, with hopefully no chance of a return.

If he thinks simply producing something radically different to his usual music will automatically garuntee success, then he really needs to think again.

There are plently of other more deserving artists out there who experiment with often unseen and underated success.

Don't bother feeding Robbie more millions anymore. Stay well away!

Flavor of the moment 27 Oct. 2006
By Pranav Chandrasekhar - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Less than a year after the release of his last hit album "Intensive Care", Britain's devilishly handsome bad boy Robbie Williams is back with "Rudebox" - a new single that marks his foray into musical territory previously uncharted by him.

"Rudebox" features Williams rapping to a dance-infused electronic sound. At its very core, the track is musically void and is replete with ridiculously inane lyrics ("TKmax costs less, Jackson looks a mess"). The song's 30-second melodic chorus serves as the only silver lining to what some musical listeners may perceive as an unnecessary and unfortunate departure from a sound typically associated with Williams. In fact, many people might even think of "Rudebox" as a lame attempt on behalf of Williams to capitalize on his star power and may dismiss him altogether.

Yet, the song possesses an unexplainable ability to grow on listeners very quickly. Furthermore, its strong dance groove makes it a fantastic candidate for the nightclub circuit and will probably be the source of guilt-ridden self-indulgence on the dancefloor. Die-hard fans will undoubtedly be pleased. That being said, the appeal of Robbie Williams' latest musical offering is highly unlikely to be as enduring as his earlier material but for those that thrive on immediate gratification, "Rudebox" just might be their flavor of the moment.
