The bright and colourful artwork (reminiscent of The Beatles' "Sgt. Pepper's..." concept-wise, and using the colour palette from "Progress") is quite representative of the stylized approach of this new album (so glad they changed the initial green "underground" cover art). Deluxe edition is housed in a hardback book with a fold-out booklet. It is rather lovely and, even though the bonus tracks are not particularly strong, it is worth getting for the nice packaging. This edition, also, includes last year's collaboration with drum 'n' bass duo Sigma, "Cry". Overall, "Wonderland" may not be the greatest album in TT's discography, but fans will definitely want to have it. My rating might seem a little harsh, but let me just mention a couple of old tracks, and you will understand: "Another crack in my heart" and "The day after tomorrow". These 2 mere album tracks are enough to make one realize how great TT have been, the ultimate UK boyband of our times really. 25 years on, it is great to see this manufactured pop group standing as one of pop's brightest examples, still creative, still interesting. Whether they are a 5, 4 or 3-piece band, it is always a joy to have a new Take That album.
Big, bold, positive, uplifting and inspiring this is exactly what the World needs right now.
Wonderland is an apt title as the record is great escapism and with different themes which conjure up different intriguing images.
Own early personal favourites are Giants, And the Band Plays, River, Hope and It's All for You however the whole album is solid.
Fun Fact: When Take That performed 'Giants' and did Carpool Karaoke on The Late Late Show with James Corden it was their first performance in America and on a US network TV show since they performed 'Back For Good' on David Letterman some 21 years ago!
