Amazon.co.uk

Would it be outlandish to suggest that wholesome rugby-shouldered ruddy-faced English piano-pop boys Keane have spent the best part of their two-album career fanning the impression that they exist somewhere between an easy Mothers’ Day gift and the album it’s ok to give your girlfriend back when you split up, just in order to blow everyone out of the water like 80s neon-pop commandos with the boldness of their third? You know, utilising the element of surprise? Probably, but even though their debut (Hopes & Fears) and its follow up (Under the Iron Sea) may have been broader creative successes than many care to admit, it is true that Perfect Symmetry is a synth-brandishing Tyrannosaurus Rex next to those trundlingly melodic Trojan horses. From the moment "Spiralling", the single that made a nation choke on its Yakult, erupts like a Top of the Pops volcano with flashes of David Bowie, Talking Heads, Erasure, Prefab Sprout and James, amongst others--with the "WHOOOO!" interjections impacting like lava hitting an LA swimming pool and sending cocktails flying--the album is generally as taut, bulky and bronzed as a teen Arnold Schwarzenegger. Old habits die hard and there is still much in the way mid-paced melancholy, but they are sung with clarity and the songwriting stays tight with some deep lyrics and turns of phrase to balance out the vague and which presumably reflect Tom Chaplin’s documented decent into addiction. "Playing Along", a beautifully arranged set of textures and gathering emotional bursts, is a particular high. --James Berry

Instantly recognisable melodies, soaring vocals and heart-felt lyrics combined to make Keane one of the UK's premium music acts. However, mid 2006 their worldwide fanbase was rocked with revelations of frontman Tom Chaplin's drug addiction. Three years on, they're back with a new album, and a new lease on life.

You would have thought years of drug abuse would knock a man's confidence. Not Tom Chaplin. "It's the best thing we've ever written," exclaims the excitable frontman. A great review in itself considering the remarkable success of new album Perfect Symmetry's predecessors. Both shot straight to number 1 in the UK. From the angelic masterpiece Hopes and Fears to the dark, brooding Under the Iron Sea, Keane represent people's need for emotional songs with catchy lyrics. The enjoyment of being in a successful band with your two closest friends would seem like a dream come true to most, Keane however wrote second album Under the Iron Sea barely talking, pretty much hating each other. "Under the iron sea kind of encapsulates our feeling at the time, we weren't communicating, we were barely talking" says chief songwriter Tim Rice-Oxely. Many attribute this to Tom's addiction, which most believe nearly split the group up for good. After a stint in rehab, Tom and Keane emerged with a newfound spirit within the band. They set out touring around the world, culminating in a sell out show at London's 02 Arena. "We had this reinvention as people, we might not have this, so we might as well enjoy it."

Perfect Symmetry thus represents a new chapter in the already torrent story of instant fame they have come to represent. A David Bowie, Pet Shop Boys inspired "sprawling mass of melody".

The album itself is a 3 star but because of the DVD extras on the deluxe version it's deserving of 4 stars because they make it more enjoyable.

The debut Keane album was an amazing piano driven masterpiece, then came Under the iron sea which developed the sound and added distortion effects for a fuller and more powerful sound, in my opinion. The latter is my favourite album of theirs and it will be forever their best. After Under the iron sea Tom went through a difficult period being addicted to cocaine and as a result the band nearly broke up. With this album the band wanted a new sound and something to make them be happy about being a band and making music again. The change in sound was quite drastic for the most part and for me the band went downhill. The album overall, after I got used to it is pretty good but that Keane sound of old is basically well over.

The album begins with Spiralling; the 1st single - an 80's sounding song with synths and a driving rhythm. There is very little of the Keane we knew and love remaining! It's actually a pretty good song and a catchy one too. The lovers are losing Richard explains is about the two different types of people. It's got a pretty good chorus and is one of the best. Better than this is one of a couple of clever songs lyrically. It's got a bouncy beat with clapping and some crazy type vocals from Tom. You haven't told me anything is another clever tune with a good guitar riff. The theme is about the jaded state of mind where you think you know everything. Perfect symmetry is probably the best song on the album and is a taste of the Keane from the 1st 2 albums. The piano is strong through most of the song. It does have that Keane melancholy about it (which most of the songs are lacking) with a touch of sarcasm.

It lacks a regular and more musical creativity, still can not overcome their first album. This album is for fans only.

This album contains their best song to date, I will give you a clue (It is the title track), it includes everything, a good chorus, a choir towards the end of the song. It is a good album, spiralling we already know is a great track, and follow up The Lovers are Losing is just as great. The whole album is pretty good.
