So it seems when Take That said they were back for good, they weren’t joking. Now a threesome, Take That has brought out an upbeat album in which they will be living for these days.
The album starts with These Days, the song is about being in with the new and out with the old. However, as a sweet little memory to Mr Jason Orange, who left the famous four (and five) piece, in the video Howard gets a spray tan to show the orange.
The album is about 50/50 with upbeat songs that are good and with songs that are slow and a little bit dull.
I really wanted to like this album because I have always liked Take That, however upon listening to it all the way through I have found that I spent most of my time clicking the skip button.
I’m disappointed that it wasn’t amazing like their others (I find it unlikely that it will become a ‘classic’) however, I feel like it would probably be better if you heard it on the radio, I would gladly turn it up and belt out the lyrics to some of them, as long as when it’s over I can listen to something else.
Saying that, I do like some of the singles, such as If You Want It I feel that when you listen to this song you can learn from it, if you want something go for it and everyday you will get a little bit closer.
Overall, as single tracks I feel they work, they are interesting and different to what Take That would normally do, however as a full album all mixed together, I don’t think that they mix very well.
What do you think? Are you a fan of Take That’s new album or not? Let me know in the comments!
