Following the minor '80s-inspired synth-pop digressions of 2008's Perfect Symmetry, Keane's fourth album Strangeland finds them returning, despite its title, to more familiar, steadier territory. Theirs is the realm of the big, broadly-reaching piano ballad, and they reclaim it repeatedly here—and with unflagging gusto. Vocalist Tom Chaplin never merely sings when a soaring delivery of his vaguely inspirational or romantic lyrics will do—think U2 channeled through The Killers—and the band's keys keep up by giving the balladry a little energizing lilt. Where Symmetry started off daring and then grew calm, Strangeland saves the relatively adventurous tracks for its back half—notably "Black Rain," which apes Radiohead rather than Coldplay with its canned drum machine beat, muffled synth currents, and falsetto vocals.
