So... I decided, after watching X Factor and deciding I quite like the slow talking Gary Barlow and whilst listening to the O2 hold music I quite liked a track that was by Take That, that I'd have a listen to their... post reunion albums.
Anyone else listened to them? I genuinely really like them, especially the last one (and the bonus EP). It's quite experimental for a million selling pop record, and Robbie-Barlow mixture is surprisingly potent. I mean, some tracks are dross, obviously... but it's pretty good fun and really fucking catchy.
The other two are more what I expected really - weepy ballads and bland chorus, but considering I grew up on Coldplay, Keane and other pumping these out as "bands" that were given critical acclaim at first, it's not too far away to consider Take That to be fairly legitamate now.
So yeah. Maybe I'll never post in the music board again after this.
