Album Review: Rudebox by Robbie Williams

Mediocre, Based on 1 Critic

The Guardian - 40
Based on rating 2/5

It is hard to think of a recent release that has incurred quite the level of negative pre-publicity afforded Robbie Williams' seventh album. Coming hard on the heels of a world tour that began with Williams offering refunds to the entire audience at the opening show and ended with the singer apparently announcing his retirement from live performance, Rudebox has been billed as incontrovertible proof that the previously unstoppable Williams juggernaut has developed engine trouble. Here, it has been intimated, is the sound of Robbie Williams' big end going: an album so peculiar, so spectacularly misconceived, that it will decimate his fanbase at a stroke.
