Album Review

This 19-song reminder of the biggest British boy band of all time is also a reminder of what Robbie Williams was doing before he became hip. More than ten years divide the demise of the original band from the release of Never Forget, a period during which many people have probably forgotten just how all-pervasive these songs once were. From the opening "Promises" in late 1991 to the farewell "How Deep Is Your Love" in 1996, Take That racked up 16 hits, including that remarkable run in 1993-1994 that saw them become the first band since the Beatles to score four consecutive British number ones. Twice! Add a live version of "Pray" (from 1994), a remix of "Relight My Fire," and one previously unreleased number (the closing "Today I've Lost You"), and the only serious problem here is the omission of the band's first-ever single, the non-charting "Do What You Like." So much for the statistics. More intriguing is to actually listen to the music for the first time, again, in more than ten years — and realize just what perfectly wrought, exquisitely manufactured fluff it was.

But they were and, for all their sins, a lot of "serious" music fans hated them for it. Now's our chance to find out what we were missing.

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...
