Default new Keane album

I didn't even realize that there was a new Keane album out.

I'll let you know how it is...

Yeah - let me know. Liked their last album.

Also - Guster's new album comes out a week from today. I hope they keep building upon their last two.

I saw Keane live back in December of '04. Guy's got a helluva voice. His piano player was the craziest-looking guy I've ever seen. Sitting at the grand piano doing this spastic jerky dance while playing, it was just bizarre.

I'm not going to bother getting the new album - my girlfriend will definitely buy that one, and I'll just mooch off of her.

You know what? I've been listening to Central Reservation more than the Keane album.

After finally breaking myself away from Central Reservation, I have been listening to this Keane album all day and I gotta say.. I like it a lot.

Vin - so far so good on Keane.

On Central Reservation - lots of good tunes but for some reason - "Sweetest Decline" is the first song that comes to mind with that album and I sit around humming it for far too long. Thanks for reminding me!

That's my favorite song on Central Reservation too.

My favorite track on the Keane album so far is "Try Again". It's their signature sound on a great track. The only song that I kinda don't like is Crystal Ball. It'll probably be a single cause it's bouncy and catchy but the lyrics are a little weak.

The Hamburg Song is really good too despite the title.

What do you think so far, stevemc?

I like it Vin. There are some cliche' type songs on it. Atlantic is an OK opener.

Is it Any Wonder? Obvious why it's the first single. Very catchy and more uplifting than the rest of their tunes. Very "Speed of Sound"ish.

Third tune ("Nothing in my Way") - I swear I start singing "Somewhere only we know" the minute I hear the opening piano. Good overall. His strong voice comes through on this.

What's nice is there is some contrast on this album as opposed to the more monotone nature of their first album.

Three good closing songs. I like it. B+ for me.
