3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on Feb. 22 2007
Format: Audio CD
Keane scored a round of victories with their bittersweet debut, "Hopes and Fears," and getting plenty of fans on both sides of the Atlantic. But could the piano-rock band capture lightning in a bottle for the second time?

Frankly, yes. Their second album "Under the Iron Sea" is every bit as atmospheric and beautiful as its predecessor, with a heavier emphasis on electronics as well as the previous drums and piano. The "sinister fairytale-world-gone-wrong" description fits it well.

You'll be drawn in by "Atlantic," which is the perfect intro to their music -- dark, sweeping and fluid, just like the iron sea of the album's title. Tom Chaplin's soaring voice sings of loneliness, and a longing for love and comfort: "I need a place/That's hidden in the deep/Where lonely angels sing you to your sleep/The modern world is broken... A lover's lap where I can lay my head..."

They switch tempos for the uptempo, ominous "Is It Any Wonder," before slipping comfortably into something in between. It's full of swaying balladry that's just catchy enough to be radioready, claustrophobic piano pop, and exquisite soundscapes that just brim over with loneliness.

The second half makes things even darker, with low-key songs that sound lonely, and sinister-sounding rock songs. The title track is an exquisite piece of shivery, soaring soundscapes backed by soaring voices, and ending with a ghostly cry. They should have stuck that li'l gem on the end, just to make people feel haunted.

You don't see many artists getting LESS commercial as time goes on, but that is the case with Keane. While "Hopes and Fears" was a song about straightforward lovelornity, this is a darker, more brooding album. Like a "sinister fairytale," it sounds dark, complex and beautiful.

"Keane sounds like U2". "Keane sounds like Radiohead". "Keane sounds like Coldplay". "Keane's first album was better". "Keane is MOR for 30-somethings."

Come on people, quit fussing over trivialities and pointless comparisons. Resist the perverse need to pigeon-hole. Truth is, Keane shares both an atmospheric pop sound and a uniformly serious tone with the likes of U2, Radiohead and Coldplay, but having said that, so what?

Listen to the absolute crap that is shoved at the "kid demographic" and therefore dominates cd sales and ends up on the charts - then listen to the artists who are making great pop and rock music these days. Isn't it enough that Keane is out there doing their thing?

Their first record is great, and this one is very good, and still growing on me.

All in, I'm glad Keane's around - I love their sound. If it also feels good to you to listen to Keane, then do that. Support and enjoy true talent wherever you find it - it is and always has been a rare thing in any endeavor.

This CD on first lisen is disapointing, however I have played it many times and the whole CD grows on you. I bought an extra copy and took it to my friends in Mexico last week and they loved it from the get go. I think tracks 2, 4, 5, and 6 are very good as is track 9. Overall the CD is not as good as the first, however the first was a master. This CD is worth the money and give it 4 or 5 lisens and I am sure you will not only like it but see that the this band has staying power.

Play it again
