38 Songs, 2 Hours 34 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

A British piano-rock band with a melodic sensibility similar to Coldplay's, Keane deliver their heartfelt sentiments through the smooth delivery of leader Tom Chaplin. This 10-year anniversary celebration includes highlights from each of the band’s four studio albums and adds two bonus tracks—“Higher Than the Sun” and “Won’t Be Broken”—written during the Strangeland era. The deluxe edition adds 17 b-sides and the previously unreleased track “Russian Farmer’s Song.” With more than 10 million albums sold, the band has clearly earned the right to look back and offer something to both newcomers and hardcore fans. Considering that 2004’s Hopes and Fears and 2006’s Under the Iron Sea were Keane's two most popular albums, it’s only fitting that five songs here are taken from the former and seven from the latter. “My Shadow” comes from the 2010 Night Train EP.

Marks The Next Step for My Favorite Band

When you buy a greatest hits album it really isn’t to hear any new material, but instead to relish in the hits that made the band you love what they are today and “The Best of Keane” does that perfectly. All the hits that i love, and then some.

Of course, they added some new recordings to the track list to please us all, and pleased i am. The song “Higher than the Sun” is a great tune, full of power and confidence. “Won’t Be Broken” is yet another great ballad, with high notes and positive feelings all around. But to my absolute favorite new track, and possibly a new candidate for my favorite Keane song, “Russian Farmer’s Song”.

For me this song reminds me of the days before i went in to college, which also happened to be the time i discovered Keane. It was a troubling time in my life, and i found little to be cheery about. But when i first heard my first Keane song, “Hamburg Song”, i couldn’t hop but smile. I’ve recently found myself in an unhappy place again in my life, and once again hearing this song brought pure joy to me. The day i heard it i was preoccupied with listening to it for hours while i went about my day. Simply marvelous.

Good job Tim, Tom, Richard and Jesse. You are an inspiration to us all.
