Historia[hariri | hariri chanzo]

Wimbo wa "Shadows" ambao ulikuwa umeshahakikiwa kujumuiishwa katika albamu hii, uliandikwa na Ryan Tedder akishirikiana na AJ McLean kwa ajili ya albamu ya saba ya kundi la Backstreet Boys' iliyojulikana kwa jina la This Is Us lakini kwa bahati mbaya haukujumuishwa katika orodha ya nyimbo. Baadae ulikuja kununuliwa na studio za Simon Cowell kwa ajili ya albamu ya Leona Lewis ya [[Echo[[, lakini baadae ilikuja kuamuliwa kuwa wimbo huo ungependeza zaidi iwao ungeimbwa na kundi la wavulana na hivyo ukapewa kundi la Westlife .[11] wimbo wa No More Heroes ulioandikwa na Lindy Robbins pia ulitarajiwa kutokezea katika albamu hii..[12].

Moja kati ya waimbaji wa kundi hili Feehily aliliambia gazeti la The Daily Mirror kuwa, "Tunataka albamu hii kuwa sehemu fulani hivi, kati ya mapenzi kutoka kwa mashabiki wetu, na mwelekeo ambao kundi letu linaelekea. Baada ya miaka 11, tunaona hii kama ngwe ya pili katika historia ya Westlilfe.."[13].

Filan akiongelea, maudhui ya albamu hii anasema kuwa,[14]

"Tukisema mwelekeo tofauti kidogo tunakuwa tunakosea, kwani bado tunaimba muziki wa pop, lakini kuna mabadiliko kidogo ndani yake, tumefanya kazi na watayarishaji tofauti ambao hatukuwahi kufanya nao kazi hapo kabla, na pia tumekuwa na watunzi wa nyimbo tofauti. Kuna nyimbo kumi na tatu katika albamu hii, na kati ya hizo nyimbi kumi na mbili ni za kwetu wenyewe, kwa hakika kuna aina tofauti tofauti ya nyimbo nyimbo, kwa ujumla hii ni albamu nzuri zaidi kuwahi kutengenezwa na kundi la Westlife.Mtiririko wa nyimbo na kila kitu ndani yake ni vya kusisimua, hata kama wewe sio shabiki wa Westlife lakini unapenda muziku, hakika utatambua ubora wa albamu hii..
