Proving that the success of Beautiful World was no flash in the pan, Take Thatís 2008 follow-up, The Circus, stormed to the top of the UK charts, notching up the bandís fifth Number One album and breaking records as the fastest-selling album of the 21st century.
A heady mix of the heart-wrenching ballads and singalong anthems that Take That are the undisputed masters of, The Circus proved a total triumph for the reformed band. And it was also another example of the bandís newly collaborative tack, with singing duties shared out between the bandís members. The band briefly considered changing the albumís title after Britney Spears released an album, also called The Circus, on the same day but decided against it.
