"Spiralling" has grown on me astronomically in the past couple days. I like the more aggressive vocal style on this song.

I'm still not sure if I like this album or not. I give them credit for trying something new, but...I don't know.

Same here In fact, the whole album has grown on me -- or is currently growing on me. My favourite songs at the moment are Spiralling, Perfect symmetry and Black burning heart.

I'm seeing mixed reviews for this album already and so not sure if I want to get it just yet. Besides, I just purchased the new Oasis record and finances are a bit tight at the moment. But I look forward to reading everyone's view on this album!

Will wait for a few weeks, I'm on a massive Travis and Oasis bender. There's no hurry for me to go out and buy it.

I just bought ti for $3 on Amazon's music store. I am quite impressed so far actuallly. It's not hard though after their sophomore slump.

Oh come on. That album is bad

I realize he had personal problems going on, but there's really only a couple good songs on it.

I completely disagree.

Atlantic
Is It Any Wonder?
Nothing In My Way
Leaving So Soon
A Bad Dream
Hamburg Song
Try Again

...are all 5 stars worthy in my opinion. The rest ain't that bad either.

I'm so happy to see that I'm not the only one who likes Under the iron sea! Ok, so it has got a couple of weak moments but it's a fantastic album. I think people were expecting SO (too) much after Hopes and fears that even if Keane had made the most amazing album ever, people would still have been disappointed. I have nothing but love for UTIS. I would also add Crystal Ball on the list of great songs, but on the other hand, it has a very special personal reason for me, so...

And the new album is a true grower. I really, really like it. I can't tell you how sad I am because I can't see Keane on tour because right now that would make my life perfect.

Crystal Ball is indeed beautiful! And it's got the album title in it. I would probably add it to the list too actually. I'm still holding out on the new album but will probably buckle at some point. How is it in comparison to UTIS?

I can't pass from the first 10 seconds of Spiralling, really

I simply can't stand that plastic, godawful dated 80s sound. What a crap!

A shame. I have the 2 first albums and they were great. I listened to this "new" 80s crap @ myspace (the whole album) and I didn't like it
