What exactly is going on here? Boybands who lose a member are supposed to do the decent thing and break up six months later. Instead, Mark, Shane, Nicky and Cian have slicked back their hair, got some new suits and inflicted yet another Rat Pack karaoke album on the long-suffering public. Allow Us To Be Frank is just as excruciating as the cutesy title suggests, an all-too-predictable set of Sinatra/ Dino/ Sammy Jr standards given the trademark Westlife big bland treatment. It's all very polished, of course, but even if you do like these songs and want to hear contemporary versions, Robbie Williams did it so much better just a couple of years ago. Suddenly, you can see why Brian felt he had to leave.
