5.0 out of 5 stars The Definitive Boyband Album October 23, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Take That were a boyband, No if's how's or buts about it. They unlike all that came after them were not ashamed of the fact. The prime reason being is that they had an excellent singer/songwriter in the form of gary barlow , the overflowing personality of robbie williams, the sex appeal of mark owen,and last but not least, the best two dancers in pop, Jason orange and howard donald. All in all, they were probably the most talented british pop group of the 90's and the greatest contradiction in music. A talented manufactured pop group.Like any normal band their first 3 or 4 songs are not very good, but gradually improve over time and Take That certainly did. As gary barlow's songwriting improved so did they, and What songs !!! The enclopedia of singles which list the 1000 greatest singes of this century include 5 take that singles as all time classics Buy the album, and listen without preduice. You will be surprised. and saddened that this band only existed for a relatively short time and they went with a bang , never to return.

5.0 out of 5 stars Robbie started here but Gary was the star April 13, 2005
Format:Audio CD
By the time this group started on their successful career, I had given up on music radio, but there is some music that you can't avoid hearing, even if you want to. So it was that I eventually realized that Take That made some great music. They never made it in America, though they might have done had they stayed together a bit longer. Gary Barlow was the lead singer and primary songwriter but his subsequent solo career has been much less successful - unlike Robbie Williams, one of the other group members, who has become a hugely popular solo singer.

Take That had eight British number one hits including Back for good, which gave them an American top ten hit a few months before they disbanded. Their other UK number ones were Pray, Relight my fire (a cover of a Dan Hartman song featuring Lulu as guest vocalist), Babe, Everything changes, Sure, Never forget and How deep is your love (a Bee Gees cover). They had several other UK top ten hits including covers of Could it be magic (Barry Manilow) and It only takes a minute (Tavares) with the former featuring Robbie Williams as lead singer - a rarity on Take That recordings.

If you buy this because Robbie Williams was a group member, you may be disappointed since he rarely sings lead. If, on the other hand, you are looking for simple, mainstream pop music, superbly performed, you might enjoy the music of Take That.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Collection To Have April 6, 2006
By LC
Format:Audio CD
It just gets me everytime when I read reviews written by "critics" that are really too up their own ar*es to actually admit that pop music from five guys that dance can actually be good.

After reading the credits carefully, one would actually realize that Gary Barlow writes alot of the lyrics and co-produces many of the tracks. Ok, so there are loads of other musicians that don't write 100% of their music themselves - Bruce Springsteen, Eric Clapton, The Monkeys - are just some of them. But do these same "critics" discredit them for talent? No.

I just hope this double-standard stops once and for all. Music is music. And if you're too ashamed of admitting to liking a 'boyband', then just keep quiet, and don't bother writing reviews about "how awful" they are. This is good pop music and that's that.

5.0 out of 5 stars Take this and enjoy January 29, 2003
Format:Audio CD
In the early 90's, the New Kids On The Block split up and they were replaced by a much more sophisticated, and more talented group of boys named Take That. They were from Manchester, England and they loved to party. From 1992 until 1995, Take That was the name that every teenager and every teenybopper knew. They were huge. They made 8 number one hit singles in the UK and three number one hit albums. This greatest hits compilation was their last number one album released in February of 1996, the time when Take That called it quits.
The compilation features all the singles from the very first to the very last. The highlights here are no secret, Back For Good has got to be one of the finest songs ever written. The song's got melody, a catchy chorus and beautiful harmony. It was Take That's biggest song released and their breakthrough hit in America. Pray and Relight My Fire, both number ones, are bubblegum pop classics, Babe, another number one, is a genuine soap opera turned into a song type. While Love Ain't Here Anymore tends to lean more towards the rhythm and blues section. A Million Love Songs competes with Back For Good for the favorite Take That love ballad, and the boyish voice of Robbie Williams (a young man back then) empowers the groovy chart topper Everything Changes. Why Can't I Wake Up With You, It Only Takes A Minute, and Could It Be Magic add a nice tasty flavor to the theme of album's high energy pop sound. And if that's not enough for you, the extraordinary number one hit cover version of The BeeGees' How Deep Is Your Love tops it all up giving the entire album a very good opening.
