What an amazing song! At the end of 2006 Take That returned to the scene with the brilliant number 1 singles, Patience and Shine. And now we have Rule The World, a song that truly cements them as true stars of modern pop music. The song is an epic power-ballad with a divine chorus, vocals are on top form and with that guitar solo this reminds me of Duran Duran's 'Ordinary World'.
It's such a shame this had to be stuck at number 2 behind Leona's 'Bleeding Love' for so long as surely if this song had been released at any other time of the eyar it would have gone straight to number 1, and deservedly so. As it stands it became the 5th bestselling single of 2007, a true sign of Take That's brilliance as a band. I'm so glad they won those two BRIT awards and can't wait to hear what new stuff they've got in store for us in the near future.
