2010 release from the British Pop band, now featuring original member Robbie Williams back in the line-up. Progress is the first time the five piece have recorded a full album together since the release of their #1 album Nobody Else, back in 1995. Progress, their sixth full length album, features the full line up of Gary Barlow, Mark Owen, Howard Donald, Jason Orange and Robbie Williams. Includes the single "The Flood".

This review is a copy of the one I posted on a blog I write for (Radio Creme Brulee Blog). I figured I should mention this before I dive into the actual review. Now, that I've said that, here goes:

Very rarely is an album these days released in the midst of a strong wave of anticipation and excitement. Ever since British "boyband turned manband" Take That announced that former band member Robbie Williams had returned to the band after 15 years and that they had recorded their first album as a quintet since 1995's "Nobody Else", there was a mass hysteria that swept both the international media and Take That fans worldwide off their feet.

Ever since the band made their public announcement of their new album "Progress", fans surmised that there would be a stylistic shift for two primary reasons:

a) Musically, Robbie Williams is a very different entity and his influence was bound to manifest itself in the overall sound of the new album.

b) Electropop/dance oriented producer Stuart Price (famous for production on Madonna's "Confessions from the dancefloor" and Seal's "System") was at the helm of production.

Fans got their first sneak preview of the album around six weeks ago with the airing of "The Flood" (the album's lead single) on radio stations worldwide.

This mid-tempo track with its soaring chorus features Robbie Williams (lead) and Gary Barlow on vocals. It is hands down the best Take That single since "Never Forget" (1995). The somewhat cryptic lyrics suggest that the song might be about the band's new-found camaraderie as a quintet.

"Progress" is the latest CD by UK Pop group Take That, and their first with Robbie Williams since "Nobody Else" 15 years ago. While their previous two CDs "Beautiful World" and "Circus" featured a soft adult Rock/Folk sound, their new CD - produced by Stuart Price (Madonna, Killers, Scissor Sisters) - finds them living up to the album's title as they take a grand leap forward with a more upbeat synth-driven sound. Their new sound is more in line with Williams' solo work.

"Standing on the edge of forever, on the edge of whatever" go the opening lines of the opening cut the theatrical lead-off single "The Flood" with an anthemic chorus and Williams and Gary Barlow on lead, followed by the frenetic "SOS' with Williams and Mark Owen on vocals and a whiff of Killers. "Wait" has an electro beat and ghostly flourishes, while Williams and Owen again lead on the Muse-style glam stomp "Kidz" set to crunching martial beats.

The fluttering "Pretty Things" is more subdued with Williams and Barlow singing over a Bowie-style pulse, while the dark throbbing "Happy Now" has a chorus rising above the gloom. "Underground Machine" is a gritty Funk Rocker, "What Do You Want From Me" features Owen singing almost autobiographical apologetic lyrics about his philandering set to a Beatles-style bounce. "Affirmation" is a frenetic Pop/Rock song again with shades of Bowie and Howard Donald on lead, and closing are the ballads "Eight Letters" with Gary Barlow and the hidden stripped floaty Jason Orange song "Flower Bed".

This is the best Take That album yet, and it has already set records in their native UK where it sold over 500,000 copies in a week earning the best first week sales yet this century.

Format: Audio CD
It's taken Robbie Williams 14 years to patch things up with the pop music entity called Take That, and bury the hatchet with Gary Barlow, the band's premiere songwriter and lead singer back in the 90's. The duet song Shame, which saw Robbie and Gary singing personal messages to each other, and was Robbie's last solo single before rejoining the band, was also a prelude to Progress. If Shame was in any way an indication that the newly reformed boy-turned-men band would be all about ballads, then that's where they misled the fans.

Progress, true to it's name, is surprisingly a sophisticated pop album, an instant classic if you may, loaded with psychedelic pop, electronic experimentations, collaborations from the entire group, Gary's vocals popping up here and there with a few verses, and finishing off the record on lead vocals with the infectious Eight Letters, a song written by Robbie Williams about his sudden exit from Take That in 1995, and other songs about youth, politics, revolutions, and Take That.

And it comes as no surprise that Robbie is dominant on most of the tracks. After all, he is the only major international superstar within the group, and hasn't been on the last 2 Take That albums. The second most dominant on the album is surprisingly not Gary, but Mark Owen who, since penning the UK number 1 hit Shine, has become a major contributor.
