*****
Great Album, let's go over the tracks:

1. Spiralling (5 stars):
This first track and pre-single of the album, this is an upbeat and exciting track. It sets the mood for the rest of the album's style, and while it's certainly something to get used to, once you get used to you keep coming back for more. It's a good thing that the album has only just begun..

2. The Lovers Are Losing (5.5 stars):
The first official single off the album, this song seems to mix the old melancholy Keane from Under The Iron Sea with their new style, and this song is proof that it worked out. Great lyrics in the verses and chorus, this is likely to become one of the album favorites.

3. Better Than This (5 stars):
This song has gotten a lot of critique ("Keane is being quite ironic, they can do so much better than this"), but what the heck, I absolutely love the catchy synthesizing sound, and I can't say I've heard anything like it before - and if I did, I didn't quite like it as much as this song. One of my favorites.

4. You Haven't Told Me Anything (5 stars):
Catchy song that lies a link between the previous and the next song, especially musically. It's also quite upbeat and has great guitar solo's in it. Buckle up, because you're about to hear music in it's purest and finest form.

5. Perfect Symmetry (6 stars):
This is the ballad that Keane announced a long time ago, describing it as perhaps the best song they have written. It certainly competes with their best material on Hopes and Fears, and is without a doubt the best track on their new album both musically and lyrically. Their first album had the balled "Everybody's Changing", their second had the ballad "A Bad Dream", and their third has the ballad "Perfect Symmetry".

6. You Don't See Me (4.5 stars):
A ballad, calm and typically Keane-ish. I like it, it's a good album track.

7. Again and Again (4.5 stars):
An upbeat track, simply said in the style of the rest of the album. It's a fine album track on it's own, but it's also not one of my favorites.

8. Playing Along (5 stars):
Power ballad all the way! The lyrics go with the music here in a special way: "I turn up the volume", innovative to say the least, and a good track as well.

9. Pretend That You're Alone (4.5 stars):
A more happy sound than the last song, and certainly upbeat and cheerful.

10. Black Burning Heart (6 stars):
Yes! This is the Keane we all LOVE to hear! This is the perfect mix of the previous two albums, while staying incredibly catchy! It's absolutely one of the album's highlights, and is bound to become a single and a hit.

11. Love Is The End (4.5 stars)
Old Keane, more in the style of their second album (UTIS). Solid track, and a good closing song.

12. My Shadow (4.5 stars) [Bonus Track on Japanese Album]:
This is actually a B-side, but like the fans know, that doesn't have to mean anything (ahem, Snowed Under, Something In Me Was Dying, Fly To Me(!), Thin Air, Let It Slide .. anyone?).
