  1. Like a modern empowered woman, Keane are obsessed with ‘having it all’. Juggling a career, great hair and kids equates for them to making safe, dowdy AOR while giving the finger to those who call them safe, dowdy AOR.
  2. No matter what their exteriors, Keane still seem incapable of anything other than the most heavy-handed gestures, peddling the same populist mock uplift that leaves you feeling pushed when it's meant to move.

    It's put me off Keane. Sorry, but they've moved away from the sound which endeared me to them. I'm certainly not suggesting that change is a bad thing, though if you're a fan of the earlier stuff then be warned: this direction may not be for you. Full Review »

    Definitely the worst Keane album ever.
    It's not Keane. It's like they're trying their best to be something they're not.

    If you want to
    become a true Keane fan, listen to Under the Iron Sea. Full Review »
