I love the new sound of Take That - I loved Progress and I'm pleased to say that Progressed has more of the same intriguing, interesting, complex sound with showcasing of vocals from different members of the band and more analysis of their lives, the universe and just about everything else. 'When We Were Young' handles the nostalgia for their 90s heyday, but 'Beautiful' is Barlow's self-eviscerating take on how he should have helped the others avoid some of the lower moments since and cuts even deeper. Like 'Kidz' and 'SOS', 'When the Work is Done' allows Owen to examine some anthropological/social/economic realities in the post-industrial world (how often can you say that of a top ten album?) whilst 'Alien' shows clear influence from Howard Donald's DJ background and 'Love Love' is just stadium-storming pop pomp of the best, hookiest, most ear-worming kind. Yes, it comes with a disc you probably already own but this is not just a bunch of cutting room discards packaged up, it's a serious extension of one of the best albums of the last twelve months and I for one am very glad they decided to release it.
