4.0 out of 5 stars Everybody's Changing For The Better, 3 May 2004
This review is from: Everybody's Changing (Audio CD)
Although not as good as Keane's first single - 'Somewhere Only We Know' their second single from the forthcoming album 'Hopes and Fears' is still a brilliant track, amply supported by the other two tracks on the single 'Fly To Me' and 'To The End Of The Earth.' It is Tom Chaplin's amazing voice that shines through once again on this song. His brilliant range of vocals, mixed in with just a piano and a set of drums gives a truly British sound.
The video is supplied on the CD itself, for use on a computer, and it is a very different video to that of 'Somewhere Only We Know.' This time around the band is performing to the camera as it circles around them. As it does so, the 3 members of the band change character from baseball players to Indian tribe leaders. Though not necessarily a better video than their first it certainly fits the track title-'Everybody's Changing.'
At first hearing this song you may be slightly disappointed after hearing 'Somewhere Only We Know,' but fear not this IS a very good song and improves with listening. With the album coming out 10th May, I can't wait.

5.0 out of 5 stars Keane Briliance!, 13 April 2004
This review is from: Hopes and Fears (Audio CD)
Keane's unique sound shot their first single- 'Somewhere Only We Know' to chart success, reaching number 3 in the hit 40. Making their music from just a piano, drums and vocals they openly promote their music as unamplified and therefore without the aid of a guitar.
Having bought the single i found that the unique (and very exciting) sound continued into the 2 other tracks on the single, 'Snowed Under' and 'Walnut Tree.' Although not on the album these tracks have a great tune with great vocals.
The trio of Tom Chaplin (Vocals) Tim Rice-Oxley (Drums) and Richard Hughes (Piano)all went to the same public school in Kent (Tonbridge) and have been together since. The album is great with most tracks living up to the high standards set by Somewhere only we know. 'Everybody's Changing', their new single, is also on the album and brings in a more upbeat genre to their music. I really advise you to buy Keane's 'Hopes and Fears' as it is easy to listen to and has some truly brilliant tracks on.

4.0 out of 5 stars Changing the Way of Music, 7 April 2003
This review is from: American Life (Audio CD)
After hearing Madonna's catchy bond theme, 'die another day'and a sneak preiew of 'American Life' i was pleasantly suprised at the huge change in style from her previous album 'Music.'
It's mechanical, it's cold and it totally suits the new Madonna. The album adds warmer warped beats and robotic voices to a familiar string sound to create a super slick albm that keeps Madonna's legacy fully intact.
