    It might not be the explosion many were hoping for, but Progress sees Take That exploring and experimenting.

    Stuart Price is without doubt, the greatest electronic producer of the last 20 years. Adding his production with Barlow's stylish songwritingStuart Price is without doubt, the greatest electronic producer of the last 20 years. Adding his production with Barlow's stylish songwriting gave us one of the most unexpected albums of the year. Take That are known for radio friendly pop music (which is no bad thing), but Progress saw them experiment, get a little weird and non-mainstream, and it worked beautifully. Full Review »

    Take That manages to get better with each new album and with Robbie Williams back into the fold, they sound even better. Progress is differentTake That manages to get better with each new album and with Robbie Williams back into the fold, they sound even better. Progress is different from their other albums in that it ventures out into new directions, experimenting with the re-emerging electronica sound that is becoming increasingly popular. Standout songs include "The Flood", "SOS", "Kids", and "Affirmation". This album is top-notch not only because of the melodies but also because of the writing, which is lyrical and at times poetic. This is what pop should be! Full Review »
