Keane - This Is The Last Time
What is the attraction of Keane? Is it the weak melodies? The rather whiny voice? The rather twee lyrics? Whatever it is, you'll find all three of these qualities here. This is an Alan Partridge's anthem. A weak ballad that's too lightweight to withstand any criticism. It simply meanders about a bit then finishes. Listen as many times as you like, and it'll always sound like your hearing it for the first time. It has no depth and no hooks. Keane are only a few degrees away from being the sort of band that would be quite at home playing at the local Mecca bingo alongside the likes of the legendary John St John and the like.
