  Taken back at first

I have previewed the whole album and when you first taken back with the difference from the other two albums yet you know its Keane by the really great lyrics that have good meanings. I think they are doing a Radiohead or Pink Floyd by changing themselves a little bit and developing in each album. Overall a must buy for 2008.

  Nearly Genius

Well, Keane have done it again. They've changed the image, gone pop and disco? Definitely NOT!
Every single song is a catchy bit of musical genius and should be recognised as a brilliant record.

Spiralling - An 80's disco theme with huge punches
The Lovers are Losing - First single, an absolute belter with a storming chorus. Try not to dance to this one.
Better Than This - Reminiscent of Bowie's Ashes to Ashes, great hook.
You Haven't Told Me Anything - Strange track, again maybe showing signs of Bowie, but a sure grower.
Perfect Symmetry - One of the many highlights. Like Frog Prince? Then you'll absolutely love this one. Mind who wouldn't?
You Don't See Me - Quiet little piano track. Possibly one of the best songs they've ever done. Classic Keane.
Again and Again - Another 80's number, with a huge electro riff and great vocals.
Playing Along - Starts quiet like old Keane with a huge chanting finish. Brilliant.
Pretend that You're Alone - Bouncy, little happy song. Like skipping through a patch of daisies :D
Black Burning Heart - Great song. Needs a couple of listens. This is the Last time sounding?
Love is the End - What an end to a quality album. A discrete little ballad before Tom decides to scream his lungs out.

Get this album. Old Keane and New Keane. You know you want it.

And just to say, if you want to hear the album early, and make your decision, listen to it on last.fm.

  It grows on you!

I love this band since their first album and from seeing them live last year made my like them even more! I got my hands on this album a few days ago (don't worry I have pre-ordered too!) and after my 4th full listen, I really like it. Great to chuck in the car stereo for the daily drive to work. I have not found problems with any of the 3 albums, love 'em all, and cannot wait to see them live again this (and next) year.
The track Spiralling has already made it to track of the year at Q Awards! Pretty impressive.

Perfect Symmetry moves Keane firmly out of the background and into the foreground.
A perfect blend of the high rolling hits as seen in 'Under the Iron Sea' and the more relaxing wonders of 'Hopes and fears'.
Almost a perfect album starting with the potential hits (Spiralling, Lovers are Losing and Better Than This.) followed by wonderful complementary tracks ending with another great track (Love Is the End.)
The only thing preventing me giving this album 5 stars is the slightly elongated middle section which really needed one more high-energy track.
It must also be noted that the already released Singles (Spiralling and Lovers are Losing) differ very slightly to those in the album version.

  Their Best Yet...

| | See all IndieRocker's reviews (3)

Having heard a number of the songs on this album, I can tell you this is the best Keane album yet - and the first two were awesome! Stand out tracks include Spiralling, Love Is The End, and The Lovers Are Losing - which is the first release! It seems that it doesn't matter what style Keane do, this album is VERY 80's, Tom Chapins voice has such a range and passion you feel Keane could do anything!! Why do we have to wait til October!!! Keane are back with a hell of a bang!!
