This album is great and very mature taking out the disco pop for brooding ballads. The album was number 1 in almost every European country and Asia/Australasia. The record sounds fresh and has huge highlights, obviously 'Back For Good' (no 1 in 31 countries worldwide including Canada/7 on US Hot 100) and the epic and amazing 'Never Forget'. 'The Day after Tomorrow' is also a standout track. Robbie quit the band in summer 95 as 'Never Forget' hit number 1 in the UK and Take That went top ten in the US in November, however the group had decided to split up in December meaning they couldn't capitalise on North American success which was a shame. Other tracks enjoyed were 'Sunday To Saturday','Nobody Else','Holding Back The Tears' and 'Lady Tonight' but the whole album is great.
16th best selling album of 1995 in the UK.
'Back For Good' won Song of the Year in 1995 at the Ivor Novello awards for songwriting and composing. They are presented annually in London by the British Academy of Songwriters, Composers and Authors (BASCA).
