Album Review

Released to coincide with the heartfelt English alt-rockers' tenth recording anniversary (Keane formed in 1997 and waited seven years to release their long-player), this career retrospective collects 18 fan and band favorites culled from their four (as of 2013) studio albums, as well as two new singles, the ebullient "Higher Than the Sun" and the anthemic "Won't Be Broken." A piano rock band even less dangerous than Coldplay, Keane found a winning formula in 2004 with their debut album, Hopes and Fears, a slickly produced smorgasbord of amorous/lovelorn pop anthems and ballads that were made all the more vibrant and radio-ready by being delivered via the angelic croon of vocalist Tom Chaplin. The record cleaned up at awards season and spawned the group's two biggest hits in "Everybody's Changing" and "Somewhere Only We Know," which unsurprisingly reside at the one and two spots, respectively, on The Best of Keane. Released in 2006, Under the Iron Sea followed suit with the U.K. smash "Is It Any Wonder?," as well as lesser hits like "Crystal Ball," "A Bad Dream," and "Atlantic," all of which are included here, while 2008's Perfect Symmetry and 2012's Strangeland, though not as well regarded as the band's first two outings, were still brimming with considerable melodic pop riches like "Spiralling," "Silenced by the Night," and "Sovereign Light Café," helping the group to mark its ten-year run by selling over ten million records worldwide. The Best of Keane is also available in a deluxe edition that includes a bonus disc of B-sides, and in a super deluxe edition that adds both the B-sides disc and a DVD.

te amo keane

lo unico malo de esta recopilación es que no esta bedshaped o my shadow pero creo que todas estas canciones describen un momento en mi vida, te amo keane!


I'm not going to buy this simply because I already own these songs, but this is the PERFECT compilation of their best songs. I can't think of a whole lot of others that should be here. If you haven't listened to Keane or are just getting into them then BUY this album. It's worth every penny, these songs and this band are golden.

Five stars!

Tom Chaplin has an amazing voice! Great songs and so well worth it to have this collection.

Keane's piano-driven pop/rock is created by vocalist Tom Chaplin, drummer Richard Hughes, and pianist Tim Rice-Oxley, three childhood friends from the small town of Battle in East Sussex, England. Formed in 1997, the group started out as a college-aged cover band. Guitarist Dominic Scott was also part of this early incarnation, having previously played cover songs with Hughes and Rice-Oxley in a band named the Lotus Eaters. Keane toured the East Sussex circuit for several years while internalizing...
