Not so Keane!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Night Train (Audio CD)
I love Keane and have all their albums, all of which I really love. This is a good EP, particularly love the songs "Back in Time" and "Looking Back". However, not being a huge fan of rap, I am disappointed that Keane have decided to go down this route. I also found some of the spoken rapping/lyrics by K'naan on these 2 tracks a little silly and pointless - i.e. something about "mixing milk with lime(!?)", "tears going back into my eyes and then I die" etc etc. If the words made some sort of sense it would have been better, as they are, I just think they seem unnecessary and have obviously just been written cos all the words rhyme with each other. It almost like Keane have given up and passed the buck onto other people to help them out! I don't think Keane need to colaborate with anyone else on their songs, as they are a great band in their own right and hope this is not going to be the start of things to come. Hope they bring another new album out soon (on their own)! I would recommend this EP/album as easy listening, but its not a patch on Hopes and Fears or Under the Iron Sea.
