Take That - Progress
My favourite tracks are the anthemic and powerful SOS and KIDZ.
So far I have listened to the album 9 times, thrice on repeat at my sister Lucy's house, her 9 year old daughter was rather upset that all the 'Mums' love Take That, declaring 'they are not a boy band, they are a mum's band' quite right too, we saw them first!
I had heard friend's views on the album, some were not keen on the new direction, others miffed that Mark was singing so much. Me, I love it, Mark has a distinct voice that really lends a unique personal quality to the songs, you truly believe he feels and means the message. As for the new sound, a bit of Adam and the Ants, meets Scissor Sisters, with a futuristic vibe.... Progress indeed.
Cannot wait 'til June 2011, I am watching the boys live in concert at Manchester City Stadium!
