Under the Iron Sea

03Jul06

Olha, eu leio TODAS as major revistas de música/entretenimento/cultura existentes neste país hoje e fiquei besta com uma coisa: ninguém, absolutamente ninguém, deu uma linha sobre o CD novo do Keane.

Eu, que não sou de comprar os disquinhos (a não ser que eu ame a banda demais), estou com ele em casa me matando de ouvir. Canções lindas, letras lindas. Um pouco mais agitado que o primeiro, mas ainda assim, triste de morrer.

A melhor música? Até agora é Nothing in my way, extremamente adequada para o atual momento, fala sobre mentiras, sobre pessoas que “são sozinhas”, mas que têm such a nice time. Lindo, lindo. Well said.

E que vai tocar neste blog por um tempo (até eu enjoar, ou o momento passar, o que vier primeiro).

Aqui fica a letra:

A turning tide
Lovers at a great divide
why d’you laugh
When I know that you hurt inside?

And why’d you say
It’s just another day, nothing in my way
I don’t wanna go, I don’t wanna stay
So there’s nothing left to say?
And why’d you lie
When you wanna die, when you hurt inside
Don’t know what you lie for anyway
Now there’s nothing left to say

A tell-tale sign
You don’t know where to draw the line

And why’d you say
It’s just another day, nothing in my way
I don’t wanna go, I don’t wanna stay
So there’s nothing left to say
And why’d you lie
When you wanna die, when you hurt inside
Don’t know what you lie for anyway
Now there’s nothing left to say

Well for a lonely soul, you’re having such a nice time
For a lonely soul, you’re having such a nice time
For a lonely soul, it seems to me that you’re having such a nice time
You’re having such a nice time

For a lonely soul, you’re having such a nice time
For a lonely soul, you’re having such a nice time
For a lonely soul, it seems to me that you’re having such a nice time
You’re having such a nice time

E o review:
“English piano-drums-voice trio Keane made big, theatrical songs cut with Coldplay-style melancholia and a boatload of sad-eyed hooks on their 2004 debut, which earned them a smash in their home country and a degree of success over here. Under the Iron Sea is outfitted with darker, less immediately accessible songs and bigger doses of atmospheric keyboard, but it offers some of the same tuneful pleasures as the debut, with big-voiced Tom Chaplin digging into his big bag of swooning choruses on piano ballads like “Crystal Ball” and the catchy, gently lilting “Nothing in My Way.” “Is It Any Wonder” starts like an outtake from The Bends, all swooshing rhythms and edgy murmurs, then gives way to a big, keening refrain. With more tracks like “Atlantic,” a slow-burner full of widescreen gloom and shapeless crooning, Under the Iron Sea could have turned into an arty mishmash. But depending on your taste for high romance, it either adds up to heart-tugging pop or nice dinner music.”
