Keane / “The Best Of”: deluxe editions


British band Keane have a new greatest hits out in November.

The Best Of Keane is available in a number of configurations including a special super deluxe edition set which contains two CDs, a DVD and a 100-page hardcover ‘photo scrapbook’.

The first disc is a 20-track hits collection while the second CD contains 17 B-sides. The DVD features an August 2013 acoustic gig, where the setlist was chosen by Keane fans.

The photo book is quite small (190mm x 190mm to be exact) and overall this set doesn’t exactly feel like outstanding value. Fans might be better off sticking with the standard deluxe edition which is a two-CD set, replicating the audio on the Super Deluxe package.

The Best Of Keane is released on 11 November 2013

    Both cd are excelent

  2. James says:

    Mike, i’d like to know the answer to that too. Second album not too bad but from then on, awful! Seems to me this release represents a band out of ideas.

    • Anton says:

      James & Mike, seriously? Keane has always been consistent with the quality of their albums. Night train is probably the worst and Under the Iron Sea being the strongest in terms of track list. I admit, some of the songs need to grow on you, but they are not awful on first listen too…

  3. Kiki says:

    We can only regret there is no DVD with the videos in this one…

  4. Mike says:

    Err, could someone enlighten me to what they achieved bar the first lp?

  5. Neil says:

    It’s cheaper on sainburys. £30 extra for a DVD and a book i think not i will be getting the 2CD.
