EDITORS’ NOTES

Led by the harder-edged R&B strut of “Sure,” and featuring collaborations with the likes of Jim Steinman and house legend David Morales, Take That's third album was tailor-made for global domination. Up its sleeve was an undeniable pop classic in the shape of the multi-million-selling “Back for Good,” the band's first and only U.S. Top 10 hit. Prompted by Robbie Williams' departure, Take That disbanded the following year, the eerily prescient “Never Forget” becoming the album's poignant, gloriously anthemic swan song.

Ignore the review up top - this CD is good

Who wrote that horrible, mean spirited ITunes review up top?? Sure, the album is 16 years old, and Take That obviously has a new musical direction these days. But saying the songs are "laughable" and lack confidence is absurd. Fans are packing 80,000 seat stadiums in Europe right now to witness Take That's astonishing comeback with Robbie Williams, and these songs are still special for many of them. Yes, "Beautiful World" and "The Circus" are better than "Nobody Else". But this album is still good and brings back lots of nostalgic memories.

Top review is Extremely inaccurate.

This album is great. It has the Take That anthem "Never Forget" as well as one of their greatest hits "Back For Good".
All singles released from this album were number one all over Europe.
Gary has some amazing Elton John Style Ballads on this album, he was way wiser than his age at the time.
I went to London last summer and saw them live (twice), it was the best concert ever and i have seen huge concerts by Bon Jovi, Madonna, Kylie, Guns N Roses, Keane, Maroon 5, etc.....

Take That Nobody Else

I work in the music industry, I know this artist personally, and I can tell you the iTunes editorial review is absurd and innacurate.

Take That has generated massive revenue to 2015 with sold out football stadium tours , and massive sales of recorded music more than twenty years after their debut, while the band "Hanson" referenced is long forgotten or playing nostalgia sheds or beach piers.

Take That must have revenues that are literally 50 or 60 times "Hanson". TT is anything but a throw away boy band. I would suggest that their revenue in total at this point in time (2015) surpasses Nsync and Back Street Boys put together.

The House of Europe is over a billion consumers strong. Would you rather have a 20% of billion, or 20% of 300M as in the States?

Is there any American act in the last 25 years that could sell 375,000 tickets for a non festival concert weekend, as Robbie Williams did at Knebworth in 2003?

I would love to debate this editorial reveiwer in public with the media present, and tie him/her into a pretzel in about 30 seconds.
