Keane’s synth-infused effort is lacking

Keane

“Perfect Symmetry”

2.5 stars out of 5

If it was any band but Keane that released this album, perhaps all the electronics and ’80s throwback synthesizers of “Perfect Symmetry” wouldn’t feel so strange. As it is, the band that perfected piano rock melodicism on their previous chart-topping albums has opted for a drastic change. […]
