Biography

Not many British bands these days have more than one big-selling album, let alone five. Fewer still manage to replicate - and maintain - that success outside the UK. And only a tiny number are able to continually develop their sound as their career progresses. But, in the last decade, Keane have achieved all of those things and a whole lot more. After selling over 11 million copies of their ... Read more in Amazon's Keane Store

Editorial Reviews

Following the worldwide success and three consecutive #1 albums in their native UK, the members of Keane release the Night Train EP. Night Train features eight powerful new tracks which were written and recorded during the band's Perfect Symmetry world tour in 2008/2009 that saw them playing to packed arenas in 28 countries; Brisbane to Washington D.C, Copenhagen to Berlin. The album takes its title from the band's favorite mode of transportation during the tour, and includes Keane's genre-busting collaborations with Somali/Canadian rapper K'Naan, 'Stop For A Minute' and 'Looking Back'.

1.0 out of 5 stars Keane's newest doesn't leave the station... June 14, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
So, you're a Keane fan are you? Well, I hope you haven't bought the new CD yet...if you have, I'm sorry. Keane's newest release is 8 songs long, clocking in at a whopping 31 minutes. Sure, the Beatles albums were often short and no one would say they weren't great...and there have been recent memorable releases that have barely stretched a half hour...Paper Tigers by Caesars jumps right to mind. However, upon closer look and listen, this Keane CD falls very short of being called a classic. You can start with saying it's really a 7 song CD that clocks in at just under 30 minutes, as track 1, "House Lights", is a minute and 24 seconds of nothing. "Back In Time", which follows, is a good song, but nothing that will make you forget standout songs from past Keane CD's. When it's over, it's left your head. That's followed by the official single, "Stop For A Minute", which sounds extremely promising until guest rapper, K'Naan, sings lines like "Baby, you are just beautiful from your crown to your cuticles". Sadly, that gem might be one of the better lines and it makes me cringe every time I hear it. I'm certainly not against rap...even if it doesn't quite fit Keane's style...but I am against bad rap. The song "Clear Skies" follows, and it's easily the highlight of the CD. With hand claps and vivid lyrics, Keane makes you wonder if the ship has been righted and we're set for smooth sailing. But then "Ishin Denshin (You've Got To Help Yourself)" starts to play and you vomit a little in your mouth. I don't know what guest vocalist Tigarah is singing in Japanese, but if it's as syrupy sweet as the English lyrics, I don't want to know. I skip this song more than any other on the CD, which is saying a lot. Next up is "Your Love"...another song which makes you think things are headed in the right direction. Read more ›

1.0 out of 5 stars Pretty, pretty, pretty bad! August 11, 2010
Format:MP3 Music
For goodness sake, DO NOT download the whole album! Listen well to the samples and don't assume a song will get better than what you hear there. Then download probably two tracks and resign yourself to listening to Hopes and Fears or Under the Iron Sea again for a year or so more while you hope for better.

Imagine a whole album of the worst parts of Perfect Symmetry, and that's what Keane have delivered here.

1.0 out of 5 stars EP, LP, it's all the same to me November 30, 2010
By Daimsta
Format:Audio CD
Do you remember the last Star Wars movie of the original 3 that came out, and before the big space battle, the fish general says, "It's a trap!"? I did some research, and it turns out he was referring to one of his staff asking if he should buy Keane's new CD "Night Train" and not the Galactic Empire knowing they were coming to attack (it was coincidence that the Empire did in fact know they were coming). SERIOUSLY THOUGH. I don't have time to deal with this EP vs LP stuff. I go to the store. I pay as much for this CD as I do for every other CD I buy. I should get the same quality for my money, right? WELL I DON'T. Keane snuck into my wallet with their decent song history and all I got for it was a bad rash inside my ears and arthritis in my joints from forever hitting the "Next" button throughout the CD in the hopes that a song worth listening to on it exists.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not mad. Okay I'm mad, pissed even. But I'm not pissed. Oh wait. Picture this: you're a music artist! And not someone in a basement, you have several CDs, a few hit songs, most people even know your name. Your band puts together 8 "tracks" that consist of an intro with no vocals and lasts a minute and a half, a featured rap artist that talks about being beautiful from your crown to your cuticles and separating milk from lime, a featured Japanese artist that never speaks English during her song so you have no clue what's going on, Keane using THE SAME 3 LINES FOR AN ENTIRE SONG, a song that steals the theme from Rocky, then burns it to a disc and calls it a CD worth asking the public money for. Can you guess what band and CD you are?

Are there some okay songs you can listen to more than once? Yes. Are they worth buying the CD for?

1.0 out of 5 stars It's as bad as everyone says November 27, 2010
Format:Audio CD
You're at the store holding Keane's latest CD in your hands. The album art is cool, the song titles catchy, the stickers on the front claim it's "a game changer," and some of the songs even feature other artists. You've liked Keane's stuff in the past, even if it has been a little all over the map as far as styles go. But so far everything seems to be telling you this will be a good CD.

Lies. Run. Just run away. Hide your cash and credit card in your wallet, then hide your wallet with your grandma, and make her promise not to buy you any CDs this holiday season, if only to make absolutely certain she doesn't accidentally purchase this one because it has cool album art, catchy titles and a sticker on the front saying nice things.

Others have said it in their reviews but I'll repeat the same frustrations here, only with bullets!
--There are only 8 songs on the CD, which sucks even more when you find out the first "song" is a 90 second instrumental waste of space
--Of the guest artists, one speaks Japanese the whole time so you can't understand her and the other uses lines like "Hard to separate my past from a rhyme, Cos how can you separate milk from lime"
--None of the songs are memorable enough to save the rest of the CD, and some repeat the same phrase over and over again, making it seem even more like this was (poorly) thrown together at the last second

Do you like Keane? Don't buy this CD. Do you not like Keane? Don't buy this CD.
