Keane’s best album in my opinion, every song is so good! This is by far their darkest album but that’s kinda a good thing. From Atlantic to Let It Slide, not a single dip in quality.

Good cover. Good title. Dull and insipid songs though.

Very good alternative rock/piano rock/pop rock album. Best 10 songs average is 88,2/100 and the album can get very good 90/100. Nearly as good as their previous album "Hopes & fears", bit more even. But continuously strong without lows. Best song is "Is it any wonder?" 95/100, followed by "Hamburg song" and "Crystal ball" both 90/100. All other songs good 80-85/100. Notable: "The iron sea" and "Crystal ball" are one track on my CD-release.

The only album I've heard by the band thus far. Atlantic is fantastic, but the rest is just a tad too poppy for me. Still good, though.

EDIT:
I'm getting into this album alot more now; the songs are well constructed and the keyboards and electronics add a nice atmosphere to it. It's definitely in my chart, but I still have one complaint: it's very, VERY loud. A shame, considering.

Underrated but not as good as Hopes and Fears. However it's such a good album to listen to and enjoy as well as pick a favourite song and enjoy on its own.
