Take That:
jboothmillard16 November 2010
Warning: Spoilers
Gary Barlow, Mark Owen, Robbie Williams, Jason Orange and Howard Donald as Take That were one of the biggest boy-bands of the 1990's, with great songs like "It Only Takes A Minute", "A Million Love Songs", "Could It Be Magic", "Pray", "Relight My Fire" featuring Lulu, "Everything Changes", Back For Good" and "Never Forget". After the devastation of Robbie quitting the band, and after an attempt as a four piece, giving us the song "How Deep Is Your Love", a year later they all parted ways trying to make it as solo artists, Robbie of course having the highest success. Then 2006, with a Greatest Hits album released, Gary, Mark, Jason and Howard decided to reform, and came back with fantastic songs like "Patience", "Hold On", "Shine", "Rule The World" (for the film Stardust), "Greatest Day", "Up All Night", "The Garden", "Said It All", "Up All Night" and "Hold Up A Light". It looked like Robbie wasn't going to come back, despite a hiatus of three years in rehab, and coming back with hit songs "Bodies" and "You Know Me". But everyone was surprised in 2009 when the song "Shame" with Robbie and Gary together was released, and this ignited the hope for most people of the full reunion, and it happened. This documentary was a good look back to the old days with stock footage, reunion footage including a visit by Sir Elton John, a chat with each member of the band about how they feel being a full band again, and seeing them record their new album "Progress", with the great song "The Flood". Good!

Look Back, Don't Stare
studioAT1 March 2020
A fascinating documentary about the road to the album/tour 'Progress', not to mention Robbie's return to the band.
