    The result for Take That is what you would expect: slick production-line pop that puts all the verses, choruses, hooks and beats in the right place, or at least the places we usually find them.

    None of their melodies sticks in the head or, crucially, the heart.

    Most songs here sound like capitulations to overworked clichés.

    This is a largely irritating and fairly hollow unit shifter, that despite its upbeat nature feels like a cynical move to market.

    Maybe some will call it the Gary B show, but Gary can't pull it alone and he knows it.

Tracks like 'I Like It' and 'LoveLife' confirm 100 percent that Take That are still in charge or the classic British Pop scene. Expand

It's very much impossible to be an impostor with something founded after then)

    Now, onto the actual album; there's very little there is to say. It's a typical boyband album. A tired genre and a tired sound which, in the end, turns out to sound very much like its self.

    A rather disappointing effort from Take That. Whilst some of the tracks have a different feel and a more modern style to them than previousA rather disappointing effort from Take That. Whilst some of the tracks have a different feel and a more modern style to them than previous material, incorporating a more electronic style; it seems as though the mentality of 'ballard writing' has gone to Gary Barlow's head a bit too much. The majority of these songs are written in an attempt to be ballads, but are some distance from pulling it off. The track 'Flaws' sums this album up perfectly for me. Flaws just about everywhere you look. Expand

    These backstreet boy wannabees must be taking bribes from the band chk chk chk, or atleast enough to have stolen their album cover concept.These backstreet boy wannabees must be taking bribes from the band chk chk chk, or atleast enough to have stolen their album cover concept.

    While they look like them and sound like them. They are impostors into the dance band genre.
