Keane, 'Perfect Symmetry' (Interscope)

7
Perfect Symmetry
Critical Mass
Label: Interscope

by Mikael Wood

News flash: Coldplay aren't the only dreamy British pop-rock band with an experimental streak. On album three, Keane trick out their pretty piano melodies with tasty synths ("The Lovers Are Losing"), booming rap beats ("Spiralling"), and fuzzy new-wave guitars ("You Haven't Told Me Anything"). Partial credit for the expanded palette goes to clever producers Jon Brion and Stuart Price, who show up for a few tracks, but figure also that bassist- keyboardist-songwriter Tim Rice-Oxley's work on Gwen Stefani's The Sweet Escape whetted his appetite for an array of livelier sounds.
