Take The Unbelievably Smashing Robbie Williams 'Reality Killed The Video Star' Poll!

So Robbie Williams is returning with Reality Killed The Video Star, his first new album in three years—and, he's probably hoping, his first album that doesn't end up filling in potholes in the Yangtze River Delta in about a decade.

Following first single "Bodies" (out in October), the album hits shelves in Europe November 9. Also, as with Robbie's past couple releases, EMI North America has announced it'll be made available digitally in the U.S. November 10.

So, what do we think of Robbie Williams in this post-Take That 2.0 world? (That's right, his last lopsided effort, Rudebox, came and flopped just months before his former bandmates put out their first album in 10 years!)

The Trevor Horn-produced instrumental clips sound promising. You can listen to them on the homepage of Williams' website.

Anyway, why not take Chart Rigger's new poll to show Robbie how much you wanna rock, DJ?

    I don't think he is the brilliant artist he thinks he is - but I am definitely looking forward to new material from Robbie Williams. Each of his albums have their few promising moments - including "Rudebox". I loved "She's Madonna" from Rudebox. In an age where every to,dick, and harry is trying to collaborate with a hip-hop artist just for the sake of street-cred with the younger generation, I like the fact that Robbie Williams did just the opposite and collaborated with the Pet Shop Boys on "She's Madonna". I think there will be some great tracks on the new album. I mean, Trevor Horn is the producer. He would not take on this project if he thought the material was not substantial enough.

    He tends to ruin good songs with his oh-pity-me lyrics (seriously, he needs to stop worshipping PSB for a minute and listen to Morrissey for tips on how to self-loathe with *style*) but I'll hold out hope for something decent based on those samples on his website. Plus, he looks like that hot piece Lyon Burke from Valley of the Dolls now.
