  1. 8.0 |   Q

    If this is how they're developing in their downtime, the fourth album should be spectacular. Print edition only

  2. 7.0 |   Spin

    The dark Depeche Mode synths of "Back in Time" grind against Tom Chaplin's schoolboy vocals

  3. 7.0 |   Independent on Sunday

    Tim Rice-Oxley & co cement their claim to being the TV-advertised daytime radio band it's kind of OK to like

  4. 6.0 |   The Observer

    Nothing here will frighten the horses, but it shows that a little playfulness can go a long way

  5. 6.0 |   musicOMH

    There's precious little about Night Train that's surprising enough to elevate it out of the realm of song-of-the-moment radio pop

  6. 6.0 |   The Scotsman

    Sounds like they're searching for the New Sound, but can't help defaulting to innocuous power pop
    Read Review

  7. 6.0 |   Rolling Stone

    Keane have proved themselves masters of — gasp! — pop perkiness

  8. 6.0 |   PopMatters

    An excursion that introduces its passengers to memorable vistas, even when the scenery could be improved
    Read Review

  9. 6.0 |   The Independent

    Some interesting new directions which suggest a creative restlessness on songwriter/producer Tim Rice-Oxley's part

  10. 6.0 |   Blurt

    The band, known for writing lush songs that contemporaries like Coldplay and Snow Patrol strive to keep up with, ends up sounding more like platinum-selling rock stars trying to remain relevant

  11. 4.0 |   State

    Has the distinct whiff of rush-job and stop-gap. Their fans deserve better

  12. 4.0 |   The Line Of Best Fit

    Musically the glossy, clean production does make the music sound fairly invigorating, but appalling lyrics and clumsy guest artistes make most of the songs laughable

  13. 4.0 |   Daily Telegraph

    Only My Shadow, a piano-led anthem built for stadiums, is worthy of a band as successful as Keane and – if they are lucky – will be the only thing Night Train is remembered for

  14. 4.0 |   The Digital Fix

    This is Keane trying to be queasily contemporary: African rhythms, rappers and quirky Japanese vocalists. They should just stick with what they're good at and leave the cutting edge to someone else

  15. 3.0 |   NME

    Oh dear. Print edition only

  16. 3.0 |   Pitchfork

    Keane are just getting worse at being what they think you want them to be
