Donald – who has been a member of the British band since they first formed in 1990 – gave his verdict on Take That’s older songs during an appearance on the podcast Events That Made Me with Liz Taylor.
Asked which track from the band’s back catalogue is his favourite, he quipped: “I don’t like any of them, they’re all s***.”
The 52-year-old added that he prefers dance music to pop, stating: “I generally listen to a lot of electronic music. I can listen to anything really, I listen to a lot of dance music.”
“At the moment I’ve got 15 boxes of vinyl downstairs, all dance music from the late 80s and 90s, I’m sifting through them at the moment – Beck, Chemical Brothers, Kraftwerk, early influences, Yellow Magic Orchestra, John Fox, Human League, Gary Numan,” he said.

Donald was one of the group’s original five members in the Nineties and still tours with band members Gary Barlow and Mark Owen.
Take That have had 12 UK number ones throughout their career, including “Back for Good” and “Never Forget”. Four of their albums are listed in the best-selling albums of the millennium.
In 2011, the band broke the record for the fastest-selling tour in the UK with Progress Live. They had also held the previous record, set by their Circus Live Tour in 2009.
In May last year, Donald, Barlow, Williams and Owen reunited for a one-off virtual performance from their respective homes in order to raise money for the music therapy charity Nordoff Robbins.
