I've had a few listens through now, having got my copy a couple of days early (thank you Mr Post office!)
This album is definitely a more mature production from Robbie. Songs that grab you straight away - Make Me Pure, The Trouble with Me and Advertising Space, which has a definite U2 influence. Then the songs that take a couple of listens like Tripping, Ghosts and Sin Sin Sin.
The influences of Robbie's upbringing near Manchester and that of Stephen Duffy are evident in a lot of the album with an 80s beat particularly strong in Sin Sin Sin.
This is heading to be one of my favourite Robbie albums, his voice has improved and the song writing has definitely improved. He's not missing Guy Chambers at all. Even if you've never liked Robbie before, give this one a go.

I know this is a late review (like 10 years too late!) but I've just been revisiting this album while doing the washing up and I've got to say that the songs on this record are pretty awesome. Having not heard this for a long time, as each song started I remembered it instantly and started to enjoy this album again. Surely must be one of his best by a long way. Songs like Pure, Advertising Space and Ghosts are truly great lyrically and musically and there is not really a weak point on the record. If you haven't discovered this record yet for some reason, do yourself a favour and invest in a copy.

Having been disappointed with his last studio effort, 'Escapology', I was looking forward to this album with hesitancy. However, after having listened to 2 songs, I knew that Robbie was back and better than ever! I very much enjoyed the entire album, standout tracks (for me) include: Ghosts, Spread Your Wings, Advertising Space, Sin Sin Sin, and The Trouble With Me. I had already heard the single 'Tripping' sometime last month, so I had a feeling that it would be a stellar album, and I wasn't disappointed!
My advice: go out and buy this album! I haven't heard a better Robbie since 1998's 'I've Been Expecting You', but even now I think this is slightly better than it. A more mature, reflective Robbie is what you'll get with this album!
The added DVD was really great as well. As a Robbie fan from the US, I haven't had the opportunity to see him live, so the interviews and live studio bits were really helpful to me to see how he works, and what he's really like.
So go on, buy it! You know you want to! :)

A decent effort from Robbie but it just does not jump out at you. There are some good tracks:
Nake Me Pure
Sin Sin Sin
Ghosts
Tripping
but nothing spectular. ON the other albums there is at least one mega hit, but most of this is just safe ground. the album drags on and the tracks are average and do not stand out. a bit dissappointing.

I came to this album objectively having been impressed with some of Mr Williams more recent outputs like Escapology, however I was hugely disappointed - and that disappointment only increased on further listenings (the wife is a fan!)
Some of the more thoughtful lyrics might well have been bearable if it wasn't for the completely substandard tunes that turn this into a collection of 'B-sides I'd rather forget'.
I would like to recommend at least one song for further listening but to be honest there is nothing redeeming about this album. This once likeable northern hero seems to have developed a case of self-obsession, false modesty and an arrogant assumption that he can churn out any old drivel and peaople will buy it - ah, it's sold in shedloads - what do I know!
Still, next time something for everyone, eh, Rob?

At 1.26 this is an incredible bargin. At normal album prices I can see some thinking about whether or not to buy it. This is an album that seems to follow the pattern of many of Robbie's albums with some songs that really stand out and others that either don't impress or actively annoy.

I am not hugely impressed by the impact of Steven Duffy on Robbie's direction. The issue is not the song writing, it is more the production of the tracks. The production first verse of Tripping feels as if it was dreamt up by a teenager on a keyboard. It is distracting and the music changing from that point shows how much better the song could have been. The music on Random Acts of Kindness is extremely repetitive and completely annoying at times. The swearing on The Trouble with Me feels thrown in there to cause a reaction rather than adding to the song (e.g. Your Gay Friend).

On the other side there are some really strong songs; Advertising Space is one of his best songs overall, not just in recent times; Your Gay Friend is a real grower; Ghosts, Tripping and Sin Sin Sin also perform well.

If it was purely on the music this would be a three star album, I sense it is going to divide opinion. The low price of it gives an extra star automatically.

I have all Robbie's albums and this is the best one todate. It's more grown up and the songs have great lyrics. I feel that he has excelled in this album, although, as with all albums, I feel explicit lyrics are not necessary to sell an album, but I get over this and find myself singing along with the words, whatever! I recommend it and look forward to the next one.
