Album Review: Take That - Odyssey (Polydor)
Graham Clark, Features Writer
If you didn't know Take That are celebrating their 30th anniversary in 2019 with a big tour that calls in at Sheffield Arena and Huddersfield Town Football Club.

On this two disc compilation they have recorded some new versions of their hits.

Some of the songs don't sound too different from the original versions - Never Forget and Patience being two good pointers.

Relight My Fire still features Lulu but is not a patch on the original version. How Deep is Your Love sounds refreshed with the track now featuring Barry Gibb. Elsewhere a more polished version of Babe sees a new vocal by Mark Owen.

All the early hits are here such as It Only Takes A Minute and Could It Be Magic.

Looking to the future the trio teamed up with dance duo Sigma for Cry, a track that opened up Take That to a new audience.

Their last single Out Of Our Heads sounds like it has come out of a 1950's big band musical. The track didn't set the Top 100 singles alight but showed that perhaps Gary Barlow and Take That are looking towards new horizons.

Rule The World closes the album. Stripped back the track still sounds effective on an album that will be already be in most collections of Take That fans.

I give the album 4 out of 5
