This review is from: Keane: Hopes and Fears (Arranged for Piano, Voice and Guitar) (Paperback)
This Keane book to accompany their album "Hopes and Fears" is a great way of enjoying the phenomenal songs by Keane. It sounds fantastic to play all the songs from such a brillaint band. The best one in the book is "Bedshaped", it's my favourite song by Keane and is represented very well in this book, it sounds great especially playing the introduction on piano. All the music in the book are pretty tricky so I only recommend this to people who can already play the piano/keyboard etc.
Also very helpful is the guitar chords put just above the stave (the lines on which the notes are put on) because it means that if your playing the piano or keyboard you can play just the piano part of you can play the main tune with your right hand and the guitar chords with your left so the songs is more recognizable. As the previous reviewed said there is no drumkit part but I'm not bothered by that and I'm sure drum players could improvise. This is definetely a 5 star product, the reason why I gave it 4 was because the delivery from Amazon went funny and I didnt receive the book until 3 weeks after I had ordered it (not up to Amazon's usual high standerds)
In conclusion this is a great book and it is note-perfect so I highly recommend it for all musicians and fans of the band.
