Robbie Williams was a teenage pop star in the U.K. as a member of Take That (think New Kids on the Block); his first solo album, Life Thru a Lens, tanked--until the single "Angels" was released and became a mega-hit. His follow-up album, I've Been Expecting You, spawned more hits--"Millennium," "Let Me Entertain You"--and, somewhat unexpectedly, transformed Williams from prefab pop star to artist. The Ego Has Landed, his U.S. debut, collects songs from his two prior British releases and lives up to the hype. Though he's still somewhat prefabricated, borrowing wholesale from Oasis (whose Liam Gallagher was an idol of Williams's), George Michael, the Pet Shop Boys (whose Neil Tennant cowrote and sings backup on "No Regrets"), and even Tom Jones, Williams injects plenty of his own personality--brash and bold but rarely bratty. He's a born entertainer, plain and simple--"Let Me Entertain You," which would fit in well on Tommy, is plenty campy but only somewhat tongue-in-cheek, and he makes no apologies for it. The one caveat here is that the album is front-loaded, with all of the hits coming in the first half--but there's also a good chance that you won't mind. --Randy Silver

This album, culled from two of Williams' previous British albums, serves an introductory crash-course for Americans who are wondering what the deal is with this international celebrity. The best song on the album is obviously the sweet ballad "Angels," a song which secured Williams' position as a credible boy-band survivor (he was formally part of Take That). However, this album is full of hits: "She's the One" and "One of God's Better People" are two more beautiful ballads; "Man Machine," "Let Me Entertain You," and "Karma Killer" are the ones you blast really loud; "Strong," "Lazy Days," and "Old Before I Die" are the ones you sing along with. The album also includes "Millennium," the video of which includes Williams in various James Bond moments. The whole album is one perfect pop ride. Williams never gets overly personal with his lyrics, but with laugh-out-loud verses that go "I hope I live/to see the day/the Pope gets high," you don't really care. All pop music should sound this good.
Also, this version omits the song "Jesus in a Camper Van," presumably over the legal trouble Williams faced with that song.

Not unlike another reviewer, I discovered Robbie Williams late in the game. Indeed, I only just heard his music a month ago, which is startling, considering his solo hits date from 1997. When I did finally see him on an MTV Europe special, I was staggered by his talent! I was also initally taken aback by his apparent self-absorption [to wit: "The EGO . .."], but realized later that it is part of his facade. He is much more self-deprecating than self-promoting, and he possesses an irrestible charm and wit. In truth, that I first saw him in live performance doing more recent material certainly colored my impression of this CD, "The Ego Has Landed." It is a compilation for the American audience of songs from his first two albums. The selections, many of which were gigantic hits in Europe, are nonetheless representations of his early solo work and initial collaboration with Guy Chambers. By comparison with what's found on his later albums, therefore, they sound rudimentary and incomplete. A few still reflect an apparent reluctant transition from the Take That boy-band days, while others, such as "Win Some Lose some" are at best bubble-gum pop. EMI tried to introduce him to his cousins across the pond by using previous winners instead of fresher numbers, and the strategy backfired. Even though "Angels," his first break through hit, has a timeless, classic innocence, and "Millennium," a haunting James Bond-esque quality, they are obscured by the majority of weaker efforts (with the possible exceptions of "Let Me Entertain You" or "You're The One"). Make no mistake: I think Robbie Williams is arguably the most gifted and dynamic young entertainer around. Yet, this album is not the best sample of his wares.Read more ›

Going back and re-listening to this album a few years after its release its clear Robbie Williams deserves to have made a mark on the music industry in the way he has. His lyrics and music alnoe make the album enjoyable, and Williams' cheeky part boy band, part ol timer, part rocker voice makes for a stand-out sound to the album as a whole.
There are a number of singles that were released either in the UK, US, or both in a few cases...The album starts off with the upbeat Lazy Days which isn't bad, but not the best song, then goes right into the dreamy "Millenium" with crazy lyrics and a really unique violin riff, a single that did well on 'both sides of the pond'. "No Regrets" Is one of my fave songs, another UK single I believe that is mid-tempo and quite bitter towards an ex of Robbies. "Strong" is another guitar-esque mid-tempo track you will find scattered throughout the album, but def. one of the stronger ones...I'm not sure if it was a single but it sounds really familiar. Cute lyrics in the beginning about Rob's dad.
"Angels" Is another standout on the album that did well in both the US and Uk. Its a beautiful soaring ballad about love and sprituality...gorgeous, I can never stop listening to this. "Win Some, Lose Some" is another guitar-mid-tempo (we'll call them GMT's) track with a good chorus but the rest is a bit...blase. "Let Me Entertain You" Is another big classic Robbie hit, awesome lyrics and really get and up and go style of song, when ur in the right mood for it, its an amazing track.
Tracks 8-11 aren't particularly special in my mind, some more GMT stuff and a bit more or a rock edge here and there..

I am probably one of the last people to admit that she is a Robbie Williams fan. After all my musical preferences is firmly entrenched in the underground but there will always be a few exceptions. Robbie Williams is one of those exceptions. I just love his last two albums "Escapology" and "Swing When You're Winning". "Sing When You're Winning" was okay but there were quite a few hits and misses, just like "The Ego Has Landed" which I know is a compilation of Robbie's songs from his UK albums. Unlike a lot of pop artists here in the US, Robbie doesn't take himself so seriously and the things he says is said with tongue firmly planted in cheek. Justin Timberlake and Christina Aguilera needs to get their heads out of the sand and stop taking themselves so seriously. Robbie could teach them a thing or two about having a sense of humor.
At first when Robbie first came out with "Millenium" a few years ago, I wasn't too wild about the guy. I just dismissed him as another former teen pop idol. Well over the next year, the more I heard "Millenium" and "Angels", Robbie's music slowly started growing on me. "The Ego Has Landed" was one of the first purchases I bought when I moved back to the Twin Cities. I really didn't care for "Lazy Days" or "Jesus in a Camper Van", and still really don't to this very day. It isn't so much of the tongue-in-cheek humor but the melodies and overall song structure. My favorite song on this album has to be "Win Some Lose Some". It is probably my favorite Robbie Williams song of all time. It is too bad that the US market has dismissed Robbie as another former teen idol. He really does have charisma and talent that a lot of pop artists lacks nowadays.
