I assume that means they'll play some of the tracks from it in full then, other than Bodies?

You wouldn't believe how glad I am, on every level, that he beat Chipmunk.
I mean, even the name of it is bad enough!

Bodies sold about 90,000 apparently – which in any other week would have got the #1 spot.

Brilliant! :D

See that's what is bugging me!! He sold more than enought to get a number one in any other week but because he was up against Miss X Factor, he get's number two.

Don't get me wrong, number 2 is amazing and I'm so pleased for him but it's just pissed me off!!!

Robbie Williams is back and seems to be heading straight for our hearts and the top of the charts with this hunk of pure pop. Robbie Williams ‘Bodies’ is so infectious and so has ‘hit’ written all over it that it hardly needs Nokia Music to tell you that it’s Single of Week. Find out how to get your hands on Robbie Williams ‘Bodies’ for free..

Robbie Williams has more lives than the average cool cat, seemingly being able to resurrect his career at will, and certainly more times than the average fat dancer from a boy-band deserves. What’s more, if the last thirty seconds of new single ‘Bodies’ is anything go by with its string section accompanied by a choir screeching ‘Jesus really died for you’, we know who’s in his corner.

The only bodies Robbie need worry about with this slab of pure pop are those on the dance floor, as he’ll find it hard working his way across the dance floor to the bar, as it’s going to be packed!
You can download Robbie Williams ‘Bodies’ from Nokia Music right now for just 79p. However, if you’ve played clever and bought a Nokia handset with Comes With Music contract, you can download Robbie Williams ‘Bodies’ and any other of the six million tracks for free.

Nokia Music has over six million tracks and it’s been added to almost daily. Every week, you’ll find the latest Single and Album of the week being promoted, along with the official Top 40 Singles and Album charts. Your Comes With Music subscription offers you 12 months of unlimited downloads and, what’s more, if you choose not to re-subscribe after the contract runs out, you still get to keep the music you’ve downloaded. Not many other services offer you that!

Quote :
The ego has landed, again, but he’s a lot more endearing this time around.

Reality Killed the Video Star marks Robbie Williams’ overdue return to the pop world, exuding a coolness and consistency absent on 2006’s Rudebox. It finds him working alongside producer Trevor Horn, whose catalogue of hits is substantial enough to turn even a sometime egocentric like Williams green with envy. And the pairing largely works well, with Reality… featuring a wealth of strong, single-worthy tracks.

The first song to be released as a single, Bodies, isn’t the most immediate number on this 13-track affair, but acts as a valuable bridge between the swagger-and-strut front of Rudebox and the introverted, understated highlights to be found here. A strange brew of string flourishes, rumbling low end, oriental undertones and even an Enigma-style break into Gregorian territory, Bodies is superb on radio, sitting between so many sound-alike offerings, but seems a little bloated here. Nevertheless, it’s very much that wonderful cliché: a return to form.

Last Days of Disco is a track that clicks on the very first listen – reminiscent of Eurhythmics and featuring the inevitable line “don’t call it a comeback”, it’s a far better tribute to the synth sounds of the 1980s than anything from the hot-right-now La Roux. This is partly down to Horn’s involvement – he produced much of his best-loved fare during the decade, and worked with the similarly styled Pet Shop Boys in 2006 – but Williams’ half-whispered vocals suit the icy beats superbly. It’s not as recognisably Robbie as Bodies, but there’s no doubt it’s a far superior song.

Deceptacon – unlikely to ever be confused with the Le Tigre song of the same name given its slow-motion build and luscious orchestral peak – Blasphemy and Superblind are skilfully arranged tracks which find Williams in his comfort zone vocally, the music around him instead given license to soar. And it’s this balance between the star of the show and the necessary material he’s at the centre of that makes Reality… his finest album since I’ve Been Expecting You. It’s got its share of hits in waiting, but the flow of the record is excellent when heard as a whole.

It’s not without its faults – Williams’ lyricism still leaves much to be desired, especially on Won’t Do That – but Reality… is a record its makers can be very proud of indeed. The ego has landed, again, but he’s a lot more endearing this time around.

(There's clips of the album there - different clips again :) )
