A *much* better song than Everybody's Changing, this has an impeccable melody and is certainly a live favourite. The only problem is that this single version sounds slightly overproduced, which is quite an unusual feat in a home studio. If you listen to the 6 music sessions from May that simplicity actually suited this song better. Tom's voice as ever sounds more heartbreaking than anyone else around. The B-sides, especially the beautiful Allemande, highlight this. Just wait until Bedshaped or Somewhere Only We Know is released by Universal. They will go stellar, and quite right too. A note for all you collecty types: this *will* go up in value.

This is a deliriously catchy song - somehow it sounds completely innocent and passionate at the same time. It is a simple song that could have been unremarkable if released by another band, but Keane make it work brilliantly. The vocals change from fragile to powerful and then back again, which is what makes this song so sublime. Apart from Tom Chaplin, I think the only person who could possibly have pulled it off is Fran Healy from Travis.
Based on this and their other two singles, my guess is that by the time the album comes out in May, Keane will have gained a lot more fans, and deservedly so!

It is fair to say that Keane have had a great year so far, they've produced a classic album, and brought us numerous excellent singles, this song just continues the trend. Like most Keane songs, this one also has that 'Classic' feel to it. It combines great vocals and memorable lyrics with a very well produced piano melody.

Keane succeed in sounding both beautiful and the most exciting new thing you've heard for yonks. This single is an example of the band at their infectious best, hook-laden at every turn, heartfelt and nonchalant at the same time, with a soaring chorus that takes up residence in your ears and heart, and there's bugger all you can do about it. Not that you'd want to. Really strongly urge you to check Keane out for yourself, not so much because in years to come you'll be able to say, 'Keane? Oh yeah, I was listening to them back in '03...' (although you will), but just that there's some music you shouldn't miss out on in a lifetime on this planet, and this happens to be some of it.

If you get the chance check out a demo by Keane called "The Way You Want It", in my opinion their best song. All of Tom’s songs are haunting. I can't wait for their album; it's quite simply going to rock.

For everyone who thought "Somewhere Only We Know", "Everybody's Changing" and "Bedshaped" were good "This is the Last Time" is a must buy. The video is very good and what it lacks in creativity it makes up for by the fact that it is one of the greatest songs of 2004. The other 2 songs on the single are also good. The original version of "This is the Last Time" is very good but no where near as good as the one that we now know. This is a must buy for every Keane fan!
