BBC Review

Robbie Williams’ love of football was sure to manifest itself on a release before long, and for his third album he took inspiration from the terraces for its title and the pitch for its cover. But it’s not the colours of his beloved Port vale the singer sports on the record’s sleeve, instead wearing blue to suit the ground used in the shot, Chelsea’s Stamford Bridge. A visual analogy for how far the singer had come, or a comment on how out of place he felt in an industry always obsessed with the biggest and best rather than those grafting away at lower levels?

Neither, probably – it just looks good to have a number of Robbies celebrating the winning of some cup or other. Look at it, instead, as a way of expressing the man’s wealth and acclaim. Previous album I’ve Been Expecting You might’ve been a fully warts-and-all affair, peppered with close-to-the-bone lyricism revealing an artist questioning the rights and wrongs of his chosen calling, but it was a major success. And the fame must’ve gone to his head like never before, as Sing When You’re Winning’s more bombastic moments play out like a boastful child’s my-dad’s-better-than-your-dad posturing, a brash confidence at odds with collaborator Guy Chambers’ attempts to conjure some of the magic that characterised its predecessor. Supreme comes close to matching the atmosphere of No Regrets, but blows its chances with a painfully out-of-place rap.

Elsewhere, Rock DJ throbs with an electricity capable only of powering the weakest remote control racer, for all of seven minutes – a number one it might’ve been, but much of the track’s success was thanks to its inverted-commas controversial video, which won an MTV award for its effects but found itself banned, in its original, flesh-ripping form, in many territories. Knutsford City Limits is a dull explanation of how Robbie won’t change despite the all the commendations and criticisms to come his way, all dreary beats and sluggish guitar, and Forever Texas is an unwise bar-room blues number with all the repeat-play appeal of a four-hour Billy Ray Cyrus set.

The tender mid-section tracks If It’s Hurting You and Singing For the Lonely are pleasant diversions from the bluster that surrounds them, but focus had evidently slipped for this long-player. Not that its shortcomings prevented it from being the first of Williams’ albums to truly make an international impression. --Mike Diver

"Sing When You're Winning" is a valiant effort at a follow up album to the brilliant, and probably faultless, "I've Been Expecting You". Along with Guy Chambers, Robbie Williams has provided us with an album filled with catchy songs; Rock DJ, Supreme(I Will Survive), Betterman, Let Love Be Your Energy, If It's Hurting You, Kids, and The Road To Mandalay are the strongest tracks and you can easily hum along on first listening. The other tracks take longer to grow on you, although none are weak 'fillers'. Robbie has chosen to play havoc with anyone using a multi-disc CD player in shuffle mode by repeating the inclusion of a surprise secret track after the last published track (The Road To Mandalay). On the previous album, those who waited were treated to a couple of hidden tracks after long periods of silence. This time around after 25 minutes of silence Robbie chirps up that "I'm not doing one on this album". If you want to make a comparison with Oasis, Robbie's "I've been expecting you" album is his "(What's The Story) Morning Glory?". However, unlike Oasis, he has not followed up with a disappointing over hyped collection of fillers on a droning album based around one good song. Here in "Sing While You're Winning" there is plenty of variety and it will no doubt produce several chart toppers. Good value and worth getting

5.0 out of 5 stars The best yet - Robbie is maturing! 1 Sep 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
No matter who the artist is, whenever you buy an album, the first couple of times you listen to it, there is one song which sticks in your mind, and becomes one of your preferred songs on the album. In the case of 'Sing When You're Winning', this song would have to be 'Supreme'. Whether its the use of Gloria Gaynors' 'I Will Survive', or just the true brilliance of the song I aren't sure, but either way, this song will make brilliant single material.
The album on the whole is very good, and definitely shows a more mature Robbie. This album is an improvement on the last, just as 'I've been expecting you' was an improvement on 'Life thru a lens' (all have been very good albums though!) The duet with Kylie is unexpected, but great.
The one downside to this otherwise brilliant album is its lack of tracklistings on the rear of the CD case, but with a bit of a creative mind, there are ways around this.

4.0 out of 5 stars Slow burning 3rd album 9 April 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
When I first heard the album I thought Robbie had had his day. The attitude of Life Thru' A Lens and the lyrical excellence of I've Been Expecting You seemed to be lacking, making this release less engaging, less sing-alongable, and shocker of shcockers a tiny bit dull.
However, once you're past the initial sense of disapointment more subtle gems begin to appear. Supreme has just the right mix of sarcasm and hope to touch a nerve. Rock DJ and Kids stick in your mind more resolutely than the first listening might suggest, and the album as a whole improves with repeat play.
Lacks the WOW factor of previous releases, but still delivers the goods.

4.0 out of 5 stars Business as usual 28 Aug 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
So third time round and the ego has arrived again. This time round we have about 4 of the sentimental ballads with the rest of the album being the more up tempo and the funked up songs, plus the duet with Kylie. Lyrically speaking a lot of the songs seem to focus on love & relationships and specifically Robbie's failing in the love department, not great but not dismal either. As you'd come to expect some of the lyrics are also fairly self congratulatory, but hey who can blame him. The highlight of the ballads appears to be Better Man, his attempt to create another Angels. The album really shines when the ballads are laid to rest, tracks like Texas Forever, Let Love be Your Energy and Knutsford City Limits are Robbie at his best, the first single Rock DJ shines and Supreme with the blatant overtones of Gloria Gaynor's I Will Survive is a definite highlight. In short whilst maybe lacking somewhat in the lyric department from time to time musically another gem. Oh yeah and those looking for the hidden track this time round may not quite find what they were expecting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Robbie sings and wins 1 Jan 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
What can I say? Quite a lot actually. One reason Robbie has always been a success is that he's such a versatile artiste. He does some loud and rocking songs (Rock Dj, Kids), some quiet and mellow (Singing for the Lonely, Love calling Earth). Cheeky, thoughtful, moving, fun... you name it, it's on the album, which means that there's something to please everyone on this album. If you remotely liked his last two albums, you'll love this. Robbie shows no sign of fading with a classic third album, and at any price, it's a bargain. One word of warning. If you own his last album ('I've Been Expecting You'), you will have noticed that there were two secret songs hidden in track 12 if you left it running. Well, there is something hidden 30 min after the end of track 12 on this album too. It's not what I expected though. Buy the Album and find out!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Clearly the best album of this next millenium! 20 Sep 2000
Format:Audio CD
Clearly I was expecting quality and variety from Mr Williams, and I was not dissapointed. The album is superb, especially the rivetting'Kids' duet with Kylie Minogue. The songs are ones that you listen to before leaving the house and carry on humming throughout the day. Before the albums' release I listened to samples on Robbies web site, and I did not think there could possibly be a song musically and lyrically equal to 'Singing for the lonely', how WRONG I was.The album shows what a talented and accomplished performer Robbie is. The album is an absolute pleasure to listen to, and I have played it non stop. If you only buy one CD this year, it HAS to be this one!
