iTunes Review

The aptly titled Progress is notable not just for being Take That's first album to feature Robbie Williams since 1995, but also for its daring sonic palette, which takes the group light-years away from their boy-band beginnings. It overflows with electro-tinged paranoia, flitting between fist-pumping, arena-sized pop (“The Flood”, “Kidz”) and heavily filtered curios (“Underground Machine”). Constantly teasing out strands of experimentation while still maintaining the band's expert ear for a skyscraping hook, it's one of the boldest pop albums of its time.

Take That - "Progress"... stand up and take notice

Well, first of all I have to say that I have been a fan of the band from day one since they appeared to the public back in 1990. This album stands alone to the previous last two albums. Where "Beautiful World" and "The Circus" showed a mature band, out from the control from their previous manager (Nigel Martin) allowing to breathe and have more of a full control of their music. Ok, so Robbie is back in within the group, and he does add an extra dimension to the group, shakes up the melodies and brings in a different flavour, pushing the band forward instead if staying 'familiar' with their previous sound (nothing wrong with that). Each individual personality is mashed-up here, bringing out wicked songs that make you stand up and take notice that this band is a more unique and original boy-band (NKOTB and Backstreet Boys should take notes) than previous ones. The music is pop, with a splash of electronica, a shake of soft rock, a pinch of hip hop and a dash of old school. Stand out tracks include 'The Flood', 'SOS', 'Kidz', 'Affirmation' and 'Eight Letters'. From the moment i played this album, i immediately liked it! Looking forward to each song, and cannot get enough of it. I have this album on rotate and pray to God that Take That will bring their tour to Australia. Give it a chance you will be shocked and surprised at how amazing it really is. How great pop music should be. Evolved. In 'progress'.


This album certainly has a different feel to Take That's more recent albums like The Circus and Beautiful World. Progress features a much more dance, electro-pop oriented range of songs, such as 'Kidz', 'SOS', 'Happy Now' and to an extent, 'The Flood'. Robbie Williams' return to the band is evident in quite a few songs where he takes lead on vocals, but the album seems to give most of the band a fair share of songs. The album focuses on dance anthems and features less ballads like the last few studio albums. There is a ballad towards the end of the albums track list, 'Eight Letters', that helps complete the album. There are songs for all sorts of Take That fans on this album and the catchy tunes in songs like 'Kidz' and 'What Do You Want From Me' are sure to bring in new fans.

Bad move bringing Robbie back

On first listen it appears that Robbie's influence has taken over the reformed band's sound... his vocals and the electronics as we heard on his solo work are prominent. It would be more accurately described as "Robbie Williams featuring That That". Fans should stick with superior Beautiful World and The Circus.


Formed: 1990

Genre: Pop

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

As the most popular teen pop sensation in Britain since the '60s, Take That ruled the U.K. charts during the first half of the '90s. In strict commercial terms, the band sold more records than any English act since the Beatles, though the cultural and musical importance was significantly less substantial. Conceived as a British answer to New Kids on the Block, Take That initially worked the same territory as their American counterparts, singing watered-down new jack R&B, urban soul, and mainstream...
