Take That disbanded just as they were on the verge of huge success in the U.S., but they never really needed American success -- for all of the early '90s, they were undefeatable on the Brit-pop charts. During their six years together, the band racked up seven number one hits, most of them between 1992 and 1996. Every member of Take That sang, but Robbie Williams, Mark Owen, and Gary Barlow were the main vocalists, and they have all of the best moments on the band's Greatest Hits collection. Weaving between dance/pop like "Relight My Fire," "Sure," and "I Found Heaven," and ballads like "A Million Love Songs," "Back for Good," and their farewell single, a cover of the Bee Gees' "How Deep Is Your Love, " Take That's Greatest Hits is sugary, infectious pop that practically defines the term guilty pleasure.
