Has nostalgia and love for the band created a new sense of love for the music or is there a divide between old fans and the old music and new fans and the new music?

As an adult during the second round of Take That's being it means nostalgia or no nostalgia I wouldn't buy ANY album now unless it's been proven to be of worth over time! However on the other hand I will buy albums from a handful of acts I know in my own personal opinion I've enjoyed their work. When you're paying for it it's very different to your younger years! Take That weren't in that second bracket as I was unsure after such a long decade absence if I liked the older version's sound etc or an album. Many artists come back for a reunion album and through no fault of their own or the music either it just doesn't work commercially.
Take That's new music was so strong and fresh and creative so with regards to Take That I think it was a year after release of the album and 'Rule the World' which made me finally buy their reunion album.

However that said I have fallen away from other certain artists I used to love and not purchased their albums for years or even a decade (Linkin Park) so nostalgia doesn't drive commitment for me as in the current day and time if the work no longer connects with me or I don't like the direction or sounds I won't continue with the group. Unfortunately am a bit fickle like that! I'm still a fan but only of a certain period if this is the case.

In terms of a divide between fans from 1st and 2nd phase liking/disliking the two phases that can only be answered by an alternate universe where TT had continued and released all their reunion records during the mid to late 90's and leading into the early 00's as opposed to splitting.
I'm sure the younger fans at the time may have been put off by the maturity of the group's direction (Back For Good) and gravitated towards more teen pop in 96/97 like Hanson or Backstreet Boys instead as a guess whilst Take That branched out into adult contemporary territory. In terms of sales we'll never know if they had stayed on or if they would have declined or re-peaked in preceding years.
