Keane-War Child EP

Has anyone heard Keane's latest song "The Night Sky" that they did as a charity single for War Child? It's an absolutely brilliant song about a war-torn city through the eyes of a child. They also have the best cover of "Under Pressure" (actually, the only good cover) that I've ever heard. There's also a remix of "Put It Behind You", which I'm not a fan of, but I'm never a fan of remixes. Thoughts?

Not a huge fan of the new song. I really feel let down by Keane, to be honest. Hopes and Fears was a great debut, with propelling, well-mixed songs. I saw them live and they put on such a great show.

After that it's just been syrupy, over-produced, over-filtered messes of tracks since the follow-up record....

I agree. I loved their debut album and since then

New song does little for me I'm afraid, bit like Keane in autopilot.

That said, can't concur with the hate for Under The Iron Sea here. I thought it was a ripper of an album, explosivley exciting choruses....love Is It Any Wonder, Frog Prince, Bad Dream, Crystal Ball, Leavin' So Soon, Atlantic, Hamburg

I'll have to check this out. Keane is my third favorite band after U2 and Oasis.

I am a big fan... I am not a fan of remixes and not keen on this one. I do like The Night Sky and the cover, Under Pressure...

I'm kind of meh when it comes to Keane anymore. Like others have said here I really enjoyed Hopes and Fears, but everything since has been incredibly sub par. If they had kept the momentum they had going a couple of years ago who knows where they'd be creatively now.

I'd prefer if that emoticon was more of a thinking scratch, than a confused one.

I'm the opposite. Under the Iron Sea is one of my personal faves. Hopes and Fears got old with me.
