Like most great albums - it was unappreciated in its time!
on 25 September 2013
I am a massive Take That album, and particularly a Gary Barlow fan - I've had his Open Road album for years, and absolutely adore it - its a firm favourite in the car, along with every single one of my Take That albums! But for some reason I'd never bought this CD, I'm not even sure I knew much about it, then I went to his solo concert and there was this beautiful song called 'Lie To Me'. It was hauntingly beautiful and I needed to hear the full version, consequently I found it was from this album. The album was amazing value here on Amazon so it was a quick purchase and with the Auto-rip facility I could immediately listen to it, and as soon as I played the album, it was on repeat, again, again and again. Then the CD arrived and it was on in the car, again, again and again. My favourite is still 'Lie To Me' with 'Yesterday's Girl' and close second. When this album came out he released Stronger, but I often think if he'd released Lie to Me (which was the original plan, I think) things might have turned out quite different! The music is subtle, the song-writing gentle, it's certainly not a ground-breaking album, but it is incredibly easy-listening and a joy to my ears.
