Play.com Review

Take That arrive back in the spotlight with their fifth studio album, The Circus. After successfully effecting one of the greatest comebacks in pop history with 2006's multi-platinum release, Beautiful World, Take That return with an album as romantic and epic as its colossal predecessor.

Brimming with soaring ballads and catchy upbeat pop songs, The Circus sees a continuation of the musical growth of Take That. The release of their comeback album, Beautiful World, not only marked a triumphant return to form for the nation's favourite boyband, but with tracks such as `Patience', Take That proved that they had spread their wings and had become a credible vocal group. And, from the opening track of new album, The Circus', Take That unleash their unmistakable sound with `The Garden', an ambitious ballad that is filled with the same magic and intrigue as their mammoth 2007 hit single `Rule The World'. While Gary Barlow continues to take the lead vocally on most tracks, including the extravagant single `Greatest Day', the rest of the band pop up sporadically to take centre stage and offer a refreshing change and depth to Take That's established sound. Whilst the downhearted lament of `What Is Love' sees Howard Donald excel on leading vocals, Jason Orange stands forefront to demonstrate his vocal range on the Amy Winehouse inspired `How Did It Come To This'. As Mark Owen continues to take vocal duties on `Hello', a bouncy pop chant that is reminiscent of Beautiful World's smash hit `Shine', the band as a whole excel with the storytelling style of `Julie', a fitting sequel to Take That's early `90s smash `Babe' that sees the band return to conquer the heart-wrenching ballad.

Taking the complex vocal arrangements of their previous album and adding an array of descending chords and piano inflections, producer John Shanks returns from his successful work on Beautiful World for his second collaboration with the boys. By experimenting with their established style and sound Take That take a stylistic step forward and The Circus delivers an exciting and accomplished album that wholly suggests they are back for good.

 not worth the extra money

I bought this for my wife for Christmas.Although I have only given it 2 stars, the album is worth 5 stars.It is rated poorly because of the delux hardback book. It is made up of pictures and the song lyrics and the cd does not come seperatley.It is in the inside of the book so it means that it cannot go on a cd rack with the others.My wife has said that altough this is a nice extra it is not worth the additional 6 pounds. We recommend that only the die hard fans buy this extra. For the rest of you the normal album will do fine.

This album is amazing; I can't stop listening to it!
I recommend that you buy this album you won't be able to stop singing the songs! They'll be stuck in your head and you'll be tapping away! The book is great, all their pictures, it just shows you how much fun they've had making this album and it shows in their songs! This is their best album yet!

 Amazing! (Even the Hidden Track)

This album proves why take that are the number 1 "boy band" in britain. It is the kind of album that any band could only dream of making, it is that good! The garden is the perfect opening track, and fans of the song "shine" will love "up all night." 'greatest day 'is the obvious choice for the best song on the album, but "how did it come to this" is equally as good- jason does the quirky lyrics justice- as it apparently hits out at the likes of amy winehouse and robbie williams.

Listen out for the hidden track "she said" also....it's very different to the other tracks, but is one to put a smile on your face....as the rest of the album will do anyway!

The must have album of 2008 and 2009....well done take that- this is your most perfect album ever!
