Robbie Williams’ LP Swings Both Ways achieved more pre-orders than any other album in Amazon.co.uk history.

The album, which was released on Monday (November 18) has already become the highest-selling week one album of 2013 to date on Amazon.co.uk.

Fans are able to secure priority access to Williams’ related tour by purchasing through the e-tailer before November 24.

Williams’ record-breaking pre-order figures sees his latest Swing album overtake Take That’s Progress, which is followed by Susan Boyle’s I Dreamed A Dream, Coldplay’s X&Y and Amy Winehouse’s Lioness: Hidden Treasure.

“Robbie Williams has long been tipped for Christmas success with his highly anticipated new album, but to overtake Take That’s Progress as the most pre-ordered album on Amazon.co.uk is some feat,” said Paul Firth, Amazon.co.uk head of music.

It's only some feat because of the fact you get priority access to his tour with a purchase. None of the other albums mentioned had that.

Yeah, nice copy and paste job op, but what is your discussion point? And how many have ordered thinking it will be as good as the first one? I bet they are disappointed.

I find him unbearable to the extent that if I see him talking on TV I immediately have to switch over. The smugness and self adoration this guy has leaves me cold all over.

The fact he has the most average voice of a highly successful solo artist makes his continued success all the more irritating. I genuinely believe he thinks of himself as the next Freddie Mercury or something.

He wishes!!

I don't get why Take That had to have him back, they were quite successful without him the second time around. It was probably a deal for his flagging solo career at the time.

Has anyone that pre-ordered it from Amazon actually received it yet? I haven't and I want to hear it with a decent sound from my hi-fi rather than just the Autorip on my iPod.

I'm not a Robbie Fan, but it is a myth that he was struggling with his Career, when
he re-joined Take That. His International success, (especially in Europe), is far
bigger than Take That ever were. He's had 10 No.1 Albums in Germany, (for
example), & Take That have had 3.

I've noticed that the UK Media likes to make out that Take That are bigger, &
then, (some), people in Forums copy off what the Media says. Sadly, far too
many people never bother to research anything for themselves.....

In the UK Robbie is the only Act with as many as 6 Albums that sold 2 Million+.
Take That are the only Group with 4 such UK Albums. (The Beatles & Coldplay
have 3 each, & Queen & ABBA have 2 each).

No too bad for a Norman Wisdom tribute act...

I'm sure he's losing a lot of sleep over this.

The Take That tour with Robbie sold far more dates out than without him, plus him and Gary became friends again and wanted to work together.
