    Keane is not a Rock/Alternative Band anymore. with this album they showed maybe they gonna change their style. and this record isn't good enough for this band.

    Had this have been released as a studio album, it would have been career suicide. The fact it's an EP makes it forgivable. It's good to hear them having fun and experimenting, but overall it's still a mess. 'Your Love' is a standout track here for it's classic synth-rock sound, as well as 'My Shadow' for it's classic Keane sound.

    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.

  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]
