The first album to be released by the British band Keane, Hopes and Fears won the Brit Award for best album in 2005*. Embellished with lyrical piano melodies and harmonies and an undercurrent of syncopated rhythm and synthetic instrumentals, it's a thoughtful and calming journey. However, the crown jewel of Hopes and Fears lies in the strength of it's emotionally intuitive and heady lyrics.

Starting with the reminiscent and dreamy "Somewhere Only We Know", and ending with the tragic tone of "Bedshaped", the album is a lyrical triumph. "Bend and Break", "Everybody's Changing", and "Can't Stop Now" explore the human condition from the universal perspectives of confusion and loneliness. "We Might As Well Be Strangers" displays a touching candor on the subject of estrangement. "On a Day Like Today" and "She has No Time" demonstrate an emotional intuition that allows the listener empathy for both the protagonists and antagonists of both songs.

Overall, from start to finish the album offers a flowing narrative which can be enjoyed as a cohesive whole. Play it on a contemplative car drive eastward during the early morning hours with a steaming demitasse of espresso and you will be able to fully taste the feeling and contemplative pain of Hopes and Fears.
