    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.

    In many ways I feel like bands that produce albums like this are the ones who are ruining the music industry, especially in the world of rock. Look, if you like this music there is nothing wrong, and in fact you are definitely not alone.

Look, if you like this music there is nothing wrong, and in fact you are definitely not alone. What Keane has done in this effort is create one of the vapid and mainstream sounding rock albums in the past 10 years. I know Keane has produced some really good music, and will probably continue to; however, there is little to stop this from sounding like a thrown together arranging of songs- hoping that one of them will be the next hit on the UK charts. Some of the songs of are enjoyable alone and if Ishin Denshin is Your Love I respect that because that song is extremely catchy. Perhaps my rating was a little too harsh, yet I still can't get over the fact that this band reminds me of The Script and their album #3. It was not only a waste in time, but an example of the machine like rock the music industry cranks out just to make money. Where has all the angst, rebellion, and soul gone? Expand

  1. As a transitional release, however, Night Train points to an even bigger and brighter future: it mostly sounds like a band happy to enjoy the freedom of chalking up 10 million album sales, and everyone else can take a running jump.

    That toughening process continues on this intrepid eight-song mini-album.

    Overall, Keane's efforts to move beyond pigeonholing succeed more than they fail. [Jun 2010, p.107]
