Review of The Night Sky Single by Keane


The Night Sky (For Warchild)

Single Review

Chaplin and the boys are back with a Charity song for Warchild. 'The Night Sky', could provide the platform for the once pop-rock heavyweights Keane to make a proper heavy-impact return.

The band came under fire from critics for playing it too safe with their music and were profoundly criticised for lead singer Tom Chaplin needing to receive rehabilitation for an alcohol addiction. Music should be strictly about the music though and not about the people behind it, should it not?

What is certain is that these guys write music to fill hearts, not arenas. They write meaningful and effective pop-rock songs, and that's what they should be acknowledged for. 'The Night Sky' is no different from music that Keane frequently write; it's soulful, hearty and it has a melody; something you can't say about a lot of music nowadays.

The lead singer of Keane is Tom Chaplin. (Thomas Oliver Chaplin of Battle, East Sussex)There is no one named Scott in the band, althoughan ex-band member(lead guitarist, way back when)wasone Dominick Scott. Mr Black, how can I trust your review when you obviously didn't check your facts?There isn't much on your link to "all you need to know about Keane" but the correct names are there at least.
