debut album A Different Beat
isn't that different, actually -- it's just a variation of Take That's
infectious, lightweight dance-pop and lushly produced MOR ballads. While Boyzone
as a whole doesn't have the energy and charisma of Take That
, they certainly are professional, and lead singer Ronan Keating
has enough show-biz flair to make A Different Beat
a fitfully entertaining manufactured dance-pop record.
