Anybody in the UK have the "Under the Iron Sea" CD? Is it good?


It's being released in the US today.

Thanks for any reviews.

Blah... I think they are boring as hell...

Listened to their stuff quite a bit...

I'd rather hear Barry Manilow do the songs of Metallica, then sit through another bullshit Keane album.

Somewhere Only We Know, Bedshaped and Everybodys Changing are amazing songs. Really really good band and he has a great voice.

I agree, he has a great voice.

What bugs me about his singing (granted, I only have the first CD) is those realllllly loud gasping breaths on the fast songs, especially.

I thought 'Hopes and Fears' was a very good album, but I don't consider myself a fan.

I hope this next album is less Coldplay like, although I have to say that Keane is a lot less boring.

Can't say I'm keen on them myself. But the worst band in the world for me is Coldplay, no doubt about it.

I like them. They're like an interesting Coldplay, and the vocals are much better...I just picked up Under The Iron Sea today so I'm giving it a listen tommorrow.

I just heard the album.

IMO it is better than 'Hopes and Fears'. Musically it sounds more mature and better produced. Kudos to Keane!

^ Yep, I agree. Hopes and Fears was good, but I think this one's a step up; I don't know why it's getting trashed in a lot of reviews I've read...it's selling fantastically, though, so good for them!

I saw them live on Wednesday and they were incredible! We had probably the worst seats and it was still great. :)

Just bought it.

I'm writing this during the first hearing of the second track, "Is it Any Wonder."

So far, quite different from "Hopes and Fears." (First track - zzzzzzzz).

I do still like his voice.

His gasping breaths still bother me! ACK!
