***** This is an amazing album which was number 1 in many countries world wide. The album still sounds fresh and great today. The melodies and lyrics are high quality and the songs stronger than the previous albums. The album produced 3 UK#1 singles. Best songs are Never Forget, Back For Good, The Day After Tomorrow and Sure.
It was during this album period on 17th July 1995 when Robbie Williams left the group sending fans and the media Worldwide into meltdown hence why in hindsight this album represents the beginning of the end.
Two weeks later eerily though with unplanned timing the track 'Never Forget' hit UK#1 with archival footage of the group's ascent to the top as the music video.

*** Ich würde sagen, man bleibt hier dem Stil des Vorgängers treu, wobei das alles dadurch dann auch ein wenig schwächer ist. Andererseits ist hierauf mit 'Back For Good' der erste richtig gute Song von Take That. 3+
