Singles - Robbie Williams and Nicole Kidman

Something' Stupid (Chrysalis) Teenage heart throb, drugged up bloater, rock star and now crooner, Robbie Williams' career has taken many a twist and turn over the past decade, with 
this latest being perhaps the most unexpected. In the eyes of the public Robbie can do no wrong, so despite the fact that this half-baked duet with 'babe-of-the-moment' Nicole is not a patch on the Frank and nanny Sumatra classic, it and the Swing When You're Winning phenomena will doubtless ensure a very happy Christmas for the Williams household.

Albums - Five Greatest Hits (RCA)

The break-up of one of the biggest selling groups in the country just before Christmas could be seen by many as a cynical marketing ploy to make as much money as possible out of a greatest hits album. And they'd be right - a quick glance at the track list tells you it's a guaranteed money spinner. The album mainly consists of Five's singles, which most fans will already own, but the 'useful' addition of the oft played Five Mega mix and the World Cup 2002 remix of Keep On Moving' will mean that completitsts will already be begging their parents for theis CD this Christmas. All the memorable classics such as Got The Feelin' and Lets Dance are included in the set. However, admittedly, like most manufactured bands, the fans have to take the rough with the smooth, and the shortage of 'hits' means that the frankly embarrassing Inspector Gadget theme tune is included. Nonetheless, the album is a reminder that when they get it right, the British can take on the might of American manufactured kings like the Backstreet Boys and N-Sync and win. If you only buy one Christmas party album this year, Five's Greatest Hits should be at the top of your list.
