Wow. This is generic in a totally non-Avicii way. A little disappointing because I was expecting a lot more progression from Wake Me Up/Hey Brother but I guess I like it still.

What a collaboration :P

I reckon it is a great track, but Avicii isn't as innovative as he used to be.

I like it. This sounds exactly like TRUE but I don't mind. I don't think it will be a huge hit like Wake Me Up was though.

Insufferable piece of dreck.

To elaborate; Wake Me Up was a big hit and a great song. It also brought back house music into mainstream but then he proceeded to butcher the genre by releasing the same old shit over and over again. I can't tolerate this any longer. This kindergarten friendly song is especially offensive because it sounds like he's become a parody of himself.

Thank fuck it isn't another "Wake Me Up" or "Hey Brother".

In all seriousness though, I love this. I love that the melody (particularly in the first verse) sounds like the melody in "I Will Never Let You Down" imo. I also really like the beat in the first verses which is oddly reminiscent of the intro of Nora En Pure's "You Are My Pride". I love how it deviates from expectations towards the end with the "Dear Boy" esque minute long breakdown. Robbie's vocals really disappointed me initially, coming across as clumsy and cheesy. I still think that to an extent, though it's only really a problem in the chorus now for me. A brilliant comeback and while it's not the most original or groundbreaking dance track and Avicii has stacks better, it's still brilliant. Maybe the best thing about it though is the top part of my review. I'm so glad there probably won't be a "Wake Me Up" or "Hey Brother" on the upcoming album. It has gotten me really excited for what Avicii has planned next. Rather disappointed by its success here in Australia though, but at least it managed to just clinch a top 10 peak.

Edit (22/03/2015):

Oh who I am kidding this is nothing that good and weak for a comeback. I still enjoy it but it has depreciated a lot over the past few months. The melody and xylophone inclusion are good things which hold it up to the standard it is at. I also still love the ending but the production in others parts is rather standard. There's also no excuse for Robbie's clumsy vocals, especially in the chorus where it's really cringeworthy.

I still like this but this era is leaving me cold so far with this track not having much longevity for me and the fact that it looks like "The Nights" will be on the album given that it was a bigger hit than this. It may not be another "Wake Me Up", "Hey Brother" or "The Nights" but it's still not good enough. C'mon Avicii you can do better than this!

Feels alright so far but my opinion may change.

Alweer een topsamenwerking, deze keer tussen: "Avicii & Robbie Williams", uit de herfst van 2014!!! Ongetwijfeld opnieuw een dikke hit op de palmares voor beide heren!!! ☺

Geslaagde nieuwe single van Avicii.

▒ Ben persoonlijk niet zo te enthousiast over deze zaterdagavonddansplaat van de nu 25 jarige Zweedse DJ uit Stockholm: "Tim Bergling", alias: "Avicii", begin september 2014 ☺!!!

Fabio (auch Fabi GaGa)
Neues Album?!
Klingt eher wie Track der es nicht auf "True" geschafft hat!
Naja. Mir gefällts weil es nicht so nervig ist (kommt sicher noch wen es zu tode gespielt wird) und Robbie's Stimme hat das gewisse etwas das mir einfach gefällt. 5*- und sicherlich bald die neue #1

Normaal geen fan van Robbie Williams maar dit nummer vind ik zeer geslaagd !!! :)

Nu toch maar verlagen naar 2 sterren !! Ik ben nummer nu al zat, standaardplaatje, niks bijzonders aan ;)

I've noticed that this has the exact same tempo as You Make Me, consequently it brings back fond memories of that time in my life. Aside from that, I love the presence of Robbie Williams, and the fact that the structure of the song is different from normal Avicii/progressive house. It also reminds me of Red Lights a bit, which could cause some hate from some quarters. All in all, I unsurprisingly love it already.

Also, are they Troll Dolls on the cover??

Not bad. Backing music bits are good but lyrics and vocals are meh.

Deze samenwerking had ik niet aan zien komen. Het pakt prima uit zeker omdat Avicii het redelijk rustig houdt en het zo eigenlijk een hele vrolijke plaat van Williams wordt.

Ik voorzie weer een hit van Avicii, en van mij mag dat gebeuren, want ik ben best verrast door deze vernieuwende en originele single van Avicii. Het klinkt vrolijk, het is catchy, het is erg dansbaar, de zang en productie zijn prima en Avicii houdt het neutraal, waardoor het erg fijn klinkt. Niets negatiefs over te zeggen. Beter dan 'Hey Brother' en 'Addicted To You. Ja, dit had ik niet helemaal verwacht!

Quite good.

This is an unexpected collaboration.

Ik ben ook niet zo overtuigd. Het is mij allemaal iets te standaard. Had zo een plaatje van One Direction kunnen zijn. No offense!

Nothing great and nothing new but I do like it.

Like most Avicii songs, the melodies are too plain and make it hard for me to enjoy from the outset. Picks itself up towards the end, but the end drags on too long! Not too bad ultimately.

Di Pupo

Echt overtuigd ben ik niet, maar ik vind dit vooralsnog beter dan die laatste countrysingles die Avicii heeft uitgebracht. Dit klinkt meer als een popplaatje waarop Robbie Williams de overhand neemt en Avicii, wat al is geconstateerd door andere reviewers, het vooral rustig houdt. Al met al is dit best een aardig plaatje en is het een nipte voldoende waard. Overigens vind ik het best slecht dat Robbie Williams hier geen officiële credits voor krijgt. Hij is ten slotte niet de minste artiest die Avicii hier uit de brand helpt...

Weer een tegenvaller. Kwalitatief goed hoor, maar vind er niet veel aan


Op het eerste gehoor meteen duidelijk dat je met een Avicii plaat te maken hebt! Dat klinkt natuurlijk weer lekker, maar het ontbreekt de dj nu echt een beetje aan inspiratie. Waar 'Wake Me Up' een totale verrassing was, 'Hey Brother' inhaakte op de hype en 'Addicted To You' leunde op ijzersterke vocalen, weet 'The Days' mij nergens te raken. Misschien komt het omdat de verwachtingen zo torenhoog waren na de geweldige singles van Avicii's vorige album of omdat Robbie Williams zelden teleurstelt, maar ik voel het hier niet. 'The Days' is niets meer dan een leuke, maar middelmatige single die nergens boven de toch al zo grijze massa uitsteekt.


I recently saw Avicii's music described as "EDMOR", which, amusing portmanteau or not, makes an interesting thought. Because I've gotten the idea that Avicii has lately been flattening his sound to include other aspects. He doesn't need to do this necessarily, but I mean if you're gonna make your big gimmick 'omg EDM meets folk', it's probably best to keep the former aspect to the bare minimum to avoid confusing people. So it sounds about right that he can even get hits in the 'grr, dance music is evil' territory of the US, because it just seems like he's making EDM without any real personality to it beyond the template, so people can easily latch onto it and think 'hey, I like this trendy EDM music!'.

As a result of this, I feel he's been on a downward spiral lately. "The Days" just neuters things further. The funny thing about Avicii is that even though he never credits vocalists, they're what makes his hits distinctive from each other. I mean, "Wake Me Up", "Hey Brother" & "Addicted To You" pretty much all have the same tune in the background, but you remember them for what each of their vocalists brings to the table.

So you hit a problem when it comes to "The Days", because you get Robbie Williams who in this case is big on presence, but little in the way of personality. I don't get a vibe from this like I do his other recent hits, and Robbie sounds so hamfisted on this track that it's actively embarrassing to listen to. Which means all you have left to go with is the beat which, again is dulled beyond the point of interest. The only saving grace is at about 3:12 when finally things pick up, assumably because by then, radio listeners will have already decided that they like it and won't even notice that there's almost a minute and a half of this tacked onto the end. But even still, that's nowhere near as immersive as say "Levels" or "Silhouettes", so the whole thing coasts by me as extremely missable. 2.4

Muss man mehr hören und dann gefällt es besser.... Robbie Williams machts es aber nicht besser !

Miskleun wat mij betrefd de flop van 2014!



Chief O'Hara

I was really curious as to what Robbie could bring to the generic sound Avicii unfortunately delivers on most occasions.
To me Robbie has a massive presence on this track and suits his vocal to a tee.
Great job all around!

Peaked at #3 on my personal chart.
