This album is superb and very different fusing rock, electronica and great vocal harmonies. The album is a departure from the last two TT albums and Robbie looks and sounds more natural back in the band and definately happier.
The whole album is great with only two songs in my opinion being good and not great. All members get their chance to shine but the album features vocals mainly from Robbie and Mark. This sounds like Take That (4 man ) and Robbies latest solo offerings merging together yet sounding unique and the best from all of them hence the phenominal first day sales in the UK.
The album has become the third biggest first week sales ever in the UK behind Adele 25 (15) and Oasis Be Here Now (97) with over 520,000 copies sold.
Although the whole album is amazing the best of the best tracks in my opinion are Eight Letters, The Flood, Flowerbed, Kidz, SOS, Pretty Things, Underground Machine and Happy Now.
