I need to listen to this album again. I just need to listen to it with the bass-boost on so it takes the treble out of the singer's voice a bit.

Will have to check that tune out.....

Playing Along would have been a perfect album closer I reckon.

You Won't See Me is just gorgeous...

Anyone have the Japanese "My Shadow"? I would love to hear it. oktobergirl@yahoo.com

I too hated the album upon first listen. I have given it some time and I am really really liking it now. I also have tickets for their mini show on Jimmy Kimmel Live on 12/3. Looking forward to hearing what these songs sound like in a live setting. The only one I don't like is Spiralling. My God, what were they thinking w that one?

I have My Shadow and I will send it to you asap (I'm pretty busy at the moment so I can't promise when I will be able to do that). I'm sure you'll love it, it's such a beautiful song really.

Perfect Symmetry needs time to grow on you. I'm totally in love with the album now, even though my first reaction was quite honestly "WTF?". And as much as I hated Spiralling at first, it is now one of my fave tracks

Wow, have a good time at the Jimmy Kimmel Live! I'm so glad I can see the show here in Finland too. I myself am literally counting down the days to see Keane in London next February.

Damn the wretched Black Burning Heart. It is poison.

This album is quality, an improvement on Under The Iron Sea, yet there's just this one track that is the most auto-pilot song I've ever head.

Remove Black Burning Heart, and the album is an EASY 4 stars.

I don't know about that. Iron Sea has 6 killer songs and then a few good ones at the end.

Okay so I finally listened to Perfect Symmetry in it's entirety a couple of times. The Lovers Are Losing seems to be the best song here. What a beauty! Other favorites include You Haven't Told Me Anything and You Don't See Me. I don't like Spiralling. The keyboards in that song sound comical almost! But the other songs are growing on me. Yeah I think this might be a grower.

The Lovers Are Losing

I've been waiting for your opinion on the album, Zoots! It is a grower for sure. My favourite song changes all the time, right now it's Love is the end which I didn't like at all when I first heard the album. I think it's a good sign that I keep finding new faves all the time.

From KEANE | Official site | News, Blogs, Videos, New Music, Merchandise and Tickets:


We're very pleased to announce the launch of a special new run of digital retrospective EPs, which will only be available via the keanemusic.com shop. The idea is that these EPs will bring together some of the rarest Keane tracks, giving the band's most loyal fans (ie you lot) the chance to own them.

We begin with an Everybody's Changing-themed collection of songs. For £3.95, you'll get the following tracks as high-quality MP3s (which means they'll play on any player, including iPods). None of these are available elsewhere - and the video chat has been made especially.

EVERYBODY'S CHANGING EP
1. Original demo
2. Demo from July 2002
3. Fierce Panda version
4. Live version from first Lamacq Live electric session on Radio 1
5. Demo of Fly To Me (Everybody's Changing B-side)
6. Demo of Into The Light (Unreleased Song)
7. Video chat of Tim interviewed by Tom about Everybody's Changing



Excellent stuff, I must say.

Yay! Goodies from the vault!

Btw, this new album has grown on me even more now... esp. Again and Again and also the last 4 songs.

Goodies indeed Fly to me is such an incredible song and it's great to get the demo version of it now. And Into the light sounds like something that could have been on Perfect Symmetry which is pretty hilarious. Looking forward to the next EP

When you said that, I thought I didn't know Fly To Me. But I do know it because it's in Little Broken Words, from which I do enjoy a handful of songs including the beautiful covers of The Sun Ain't Gonna Shine Anymore and What A Wonderful World and of course the brilliant Snowed Under.

Okay, i've seen the Keane guys at Jimmy Kimmel and then last night I was treated to a tiny club show at the Echo in L.A. MAX 300 people. It was incredible. They are playing the Roxy tonight in L.A. but I am sitting that one out. Planning to go to their acoustic show at the tiny Largo club (sit down) on Sunday. This band is really great live. I'm so glad they decided to do these tiny one off shows here while they are promoting. One of my friends took video from the show at the Echo last night. I'll share the link here w/ you guys:

YouTube - Broadcast Yourself.

Whoa oktobergirl, lucky you! I've seen lots of videos from the LA gigs and they are just fantastic! How I'd love to see them at such a small venue (being a fan of the more intimate gigs). I think the new songs are really beginning to find their live "shape" so to say, for example You haven't told me anything sounds fantastic live.

Here's hoping to win a ticket to the free London gig on December 16th...
