I agree. I have loved every track I've heard thus far, and cannot wait to hear the other six. This band simply makes my day better.

Perfect Symmetry was not a complete derail, but it certainly does not rank up there with their first 2 albums. Night Train is a rather interesting EP to be sure. Let's hope that their next album plays more to their strengths than a horrible 80s outing like the first half of Perfect Symmetry was.

I agree- lots of people like to bash perfect symmetry, as if it's a FAILURE. NO WAY! Though it doesn't bring me to that same epic, emotional place that Iron Sea does. I still haven't heard Night Train, but I'm expecting it to be a fun, modern take on 80's textures. I wonder where the band will be venturing next- they've certainly kept everyone on their toes thus far!

I just can´t say enough about this fantastic band. This EP has great songs, as expected. Very surprising ones indeed, but always fantastic.

Not so fast with the "Back on track" sentiment... so far it looks like NIGHT TRAIN is taking an even bigger beating than PERFECT SYMMETRY.

The tribe has spoken.

Raymond, I almost feel sorry for the boys. Almost. There is no excuse for these poor songs from them on Night Train and Perfect Symmetry. I know they want to experiment blah, blah blah. That is not the issue. The issue which Keane fans, including me , is we do not like these forgettable songs. I shake my head when I see someone giving this cd 5 stars. Give me a break. There is being a fan and then there is being a sheep. Heck, the cd got blasted by fans on Keane's own web site.

You're absolutely right, J. And have you noticed how many of the folks posting glowing reviews are telling those of us providing legitimate critiques to "get over it" and "what's your problem?" It's really not hard separating the wheat from the chaff here.

I have never cared about a band in my life like I did Keane. They honestly touched me like no other band. Under the Iron Sea was brilliant. I have noticed the people giving wonderful reviews have said "get over it". They think they are defending the bands right to experiment. They are defending terrible songs. As long as we keep doing this they will keep writing forgettable 80's music. Iron Sea and Hopes and Fears were completely different types of albums. But, both were brilliant. We just want good songs again. Ones we sing at the top of our lungs too like the first two albums. :)
