Customer Reviews

Top Customer Reviews

Format: Audio CD
Track by track after two weeks listening:
The Garden: Draws you in and makes you feel good to be alive. Would have been a great Christmas single.
Greatest Day: A nice homage to U2 (Where the Streets Have no Name.) Liked it the first time I heard it. Still do.
Hello: Not convinced to begin with. Driving down the motorway in the sunshine, it was suddenly a great singalong track.
Said it All: Gorgeous. Nuff Said.
Julie: Felt sad about something at work. Listened to 'Julie'. Felt happy again.
The Circus: Beautiful in its simplicity
How Did it Come to This: Autobiographical? A great performance of a cleverly worded track. One of my favourites.
Up All Night: Fabulous live
What Is Love: Howard comes precariously close to perfection with this one.
You: The only track I have yet to warm to. Too formulaic for me. Sorry!
Hold up a light: Not my favourite vocal but it'll be a killer live then a great memory thereafter.
Here: Fab-u-lous. Play it on repeat.
She said: A Strictly special. Simply lovely and great fun.

As a fifty something brought up on The Beatles I am not your typical Take That fan, but despite this, I have always liked them, especially since the comeback.

This is a terrific album - great songs, beautifully sung, beautifully performed, beautifully produced - a triumph.

It is actually more Coldplay that the Take That of Roobie era fame.

Open your mind and enjoy.

As mature and cosy as the Marks & Sparks jumpers they model, The Circus is further consolidation of the Take That boys as an 'adult' band, unlikely to return to campy disco or cheast bearing antics any time soon. And it suits them well, particularly Barlow, whose proclivity for sensitively written, singer-songwriterly ballads always left him looking a little old before his time in the Robbie days.

Liberated to write grown up material for grown ups, he looks much more comfortable, and the combination of quirky, Beatlesy melodies, Coldplay sized stadium grandeur and heart on sleeve sentiment here works very well. It's not just the Gary Barlow show either. This is satisfyingly democratic album, with even Howard and Jason acquiting themselves well on lead vox for How Did It Come to This and What Is Love, and making you wonder why someone sees fit to turn them down so low in the mix the rest of the time.

It might be a little hyperbolic to call it the most convincing transition from teenyboppers to a grown up band since the Fab Four themselves. But it's certainly more emphatic than a band like Backstreet Boys, whose idea of growth appears to be to churn out increasingly bloodless versions of their old hits, while dressing like men in the midst of a mid-life crisis.

After the phenomenal success of "Beautiful World" in 2006, I figured it virtually impossible to match, or even come close, in a second outing. I was wrong. Although "The Circus" is different both in approach, and overall vibe, it stays true to the intensely strong talent behind it. Between the brilliant songwriting by all four members, to the fantastic production by John Shanks, this album is a natural progression on the continuing path of Take That. I am totally thankful to have the group back making beautiful, epic music again. Whenever I can't find the words, these guys seem take them right out of my mouth.

I must admit I've only ever heard a limited amount of their music, mainly singles, which of course have been many over the years and I've quite liked a lot of them, but recently I happened to hear the first track off this album and thought what a great tune it was, I wasn't sure who it was although I had an idea it was Take That, I looked at their music on Amazon and found out it was off this album, after playing a few sample clips I decided to buy it, now, 2 weeks later I can't stop playing it, I know I'm a few years late discovering it but I'm glad I have, It's full of catchy, tuneful songs, I think maybe I should listen to some more of their music to find out what I've been missing.

Had this album on Christmas Day 2008 and have honestly played at least a couple of tracks from it every day since.

I have to be honest and say that I've always loved Take That, but when I first heard 'The Garden' I was almost too excited to speak! Fabulous singing by both Mark and Gary and a great introduction to the album. It just gets better from there with no dud tracks and plenty to bring pleasure to all.

At first, I was disappointed that there was too little Gary and too much Mark on the album, but this has changed with time and I now fully appreciate Mark's input and singing which adds further depth to the album and reminds me that the best 'boy band' (The Beatles) shared vocals. Anyway, with this album we can finally throw away the awful 'boy band' tag - this is in a league of its' own.

When I listen to Take That, I know why I love Britain and I know why the boys are a national treasure which we can all be proud of. If you haven't got this album, then get it now and make sure you get the DVD, too!!! Looking forward to the next album.
