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.

Didn't buy progress as wasn't ready to admit I owned a TT album. Although I loved Flood I couldn't justify it and then this album came out and I thought well it has to be a bargain to get two albums for the price of one

WOW!

This album is mind blowingly brilliant!

Love love on the "new" disc is worth the album price alone, incredible song. Catchy, powerful, pure TT really

Would I buy this is I had already bought progress... I don't know, I think this album was ideally suited to those of us who hadn't

Buy this album, there is a reason the boys are back doing sell out shows night after night. This album is incredible

I am not a Take That fan. I find a lot of their work weak and insipid. The fans reading this are now ready to kill me no doubt.
I liked Progress though. My friend had it and I listened to it a lot and found it worked well as a complete album. Kidz and SOS were stand-out for me as I love a big sound. I had no intention of buying the album but I thought 'hmm, they're doing a lot better here'. I wonder if it's Robbie's influence (more controversy, no doubt).
But then they released Love Love, which is the most amazing song of the year. I bought Progressed on the strength of this track and wasn't disappointed. All the tracks are brilliant and the wonderful 'the day the work is done' is beautiful.
Quite simply - buy it. I can't imagine anyone being disappointed with this. The boys have learnt a lot, grown up and put together some brilliant music. Take That are no longer a boy band, but credible artists that have longevity, musical and performance talent to rival old stalwarts like Madonna.

First and foremost, I'd like to state that I'm not a Take That fan, merely the long-suffering husband of a completely manic one. I took my wife to see Take That perform at Wembley back on the 30th June and it was an absolutely amazing show. I bought her this album a few days before the gig and it's been spot-welded into the car stereo since (despite my protestations that it might be nice to listen to some of my music from time to time!) Even my three year old daughter loves it (and can eerily name most of the tracks even before the intro has finished).

Progressed is the album Progress should have been. Featuring most of the tracks released as singles (which are, of course, the best tracks) and the upcoming "When we were young", it's pretty listenable stuff even if Take That are still a commercially processed boy band in your opinion.

Killer tracks like "Kids", "The Flood", "Man", and the utterly excellent "Love Love" are standouts but what sticks in the mind is how diverse this is and how unexpected most of the stuff is considering it's by a 'pop' band.

I do get annoyed when record companies do this. Put the original album out with another disc, making you buy a duplicate of the album. I think progress is a great step forward, changing my mind about take That. I was never a fan of take that first time around, but after Beautiful world, I changed my mind, and the songs are mature and well structured. Progress is a great album, and what ever anyone thinks about Robbie Williams, works well, and has made the group a solid unit. My only criticism, is why could this extra disc not be released as a separate CD, it makes no sense, when Progress (single disc) became the most successful disc of this century, therefore Polydor we all bought it. Shame on you the new disc is good mind you with Love love love but that not the point.

Following their reform in 2006, Take That returned with "Beautiful world" and "The circus", both of which featured soft adult pop-rock/folk songs, developing from the pop-orientated material that established and made them a true sensation in the nineties. "Progress" sounds nothing like these 2 albums, being a straight-up electronic record with a more upbeat synth-driven sound. Continuing their way forward, the increasing maturity in lyrics, the beautifully written melodies, the gorgeous vocal harmonies, the experimental and soul-baring qualities, were quite a deparure altogether from the typical Take That style of former records, introducing them to a more adult audience. Singles "The flood" and "When we were young" rank among the group's finest moments, unanimously. Many were initially unpleasantly surprised upon the album's release. However, most soon came round to admitting that this change in sound was rather necessary for them as a band in order to take another leap forward. Inevitably, Robbie Williams' influence was also seen with reserve, causing both positive and negative criticism.

Living up to its title, with "Progress" Take That broke new territory, and some records, too (the second fastest-selling album ever in the UK, and best-selling album of 2010 in Europe). The album is considered to be among Take That's boldest efforts, though it is not their strongest. This, "Progressed", the subsequent re-package enhanced interest (and boosted sales evenmore, resulting in total UK sales of 3 milion!), boasting 8 new tracks, most of them sitting more than comfortably alongside the original 10; a serious extension of this album, rathen than a simple addition to the original set.
