Dont do it. Keep living in the past from 20 years ago and keep hoping for the next holy bible........ The rest of us have grown up....... This album IS how we all just wasted those years and have matured (of a fashion)

Oh, if I was brave I would admit I saw Gary Barlow on his solo tour which was brilliant...... However, I would never admit to that.... Not on here....... Or anywhere........

It's his voice cracking on the lines 'tearing off like so many calendar days' on ASFD that I love best.

To be fair, that was arguably delivered in 2009, and may still be in 2014.

Seriously, give it a go.
I was not impressed with the title track and SMTW did nothing for me on release. As an old fan I've always considered their music to be my life's soundtrack, it has been since I first heard James's guitar screaming down my speakers in 92, so wasn't looking forward to RTF at all. I take it back, all is forgiven. It's beautiful. Up there in their top three for me now. (after GATS and THB if anyone cares). I am completely in love with this record. I mentioned that they have provided the soundtrack to my life and this fits. They aren't the same angry 20-somethings who did Faster in balaclavas and combats on TOTP, but then I'm not the same angry 20-something who saw it and thought "Fuck yeah!".

It's saturated with resigned melancholia, bittersweet reminiscence and sad, epic beauty, hell it's even made me warm to SMTW and I thought that was appalling on first listen.

It's your choice whether you give it a go, but you are genuinely missing out. It's not standard-issue MSP, it's a thing of beauty.
