Perfect Symmetry's 4th birthday today

13 Oct 2012

As quite a few of you have been in touch via Keane's Facebook and Twitter pages to tell us, today is the fourth birthday of the release of Keane's third album, Perfect Symmetry. Which seemed a good reason to post the video for the album's title track (which is still one of the band's favourite Keane songs).

When I could see them... sorry for the mistake.

That is a really good album, and that tour was the first when I could saw them on stage. Great show.

Do you mean Perfect Symmetry the album? Or do you mean the song? Though I love Perfect Symmetry, both of them. Any way Happy Birthday to PS! A great album need a special edition, I suppose I new edition and you guys really deserve that. A week too late Happy Birthday one more time for PS!

Estaba conectada buscando información de Keane y en el youtube si escribis Song without words by Time Rice aparece Tim tocando una canción que no sale en ningún CD con una melodia preciosa. No tiene letra. Quizá algún dia nos explica que se han hecho de estas notas. Petons. Barcelona. Marisa.

Tantissimi auguri di buon anniversario del vostro terzo album cari Keane! Anch'io amo molto questa canzone e sono felice che abbiate riproposto il relativo video, che bello, è stato emozionante per me risentire questa song! Un salutone da Sabrina from Sicily e ancora auguroni !!!

The album with my favorite song - Black Burning Heart. Also, The Lovers Are Losing is the first Keane song I ever heard and I would not give up until I found out who was singing it. Thank goodness I did.

Happy Anniversary!!! One of the greatest records of all time... Keep making gorgeous songs like the Strangeland ones!! Greetings from Argentina

i know that is late, but congratulations! One of your best albums, but in my opinion, all are awesome! Happy aniversary Perfect Symmetry :D

Perfect Symmetry means a lot to me. The Frog Prince Squad did a "Keane Fan Meeting" (that we call "Keanencontro") to celebrate it here in Sao Paulo. Hope to see you guys very soon in our country!! All my best.

I'm late but Woo! Happy Birthday!

Felicidades 13 october 2008. Recorded Berlin Teldex Studio, París Grande Armée and UK Olympic Studios. Employing guitars, saxophone, synthesizers and Jesse miembro soporte. There is a big distance between this dream of that we want to be as people and the reality of waht we actually are. "Love is The End", "Pretend that you're alone", "Black Burning heart". Un CD menos valorado pero con un sonido experimental i para mi buenísimo. Petons. Barcelona. Marisa. Compuesto basicament por Tim-Rice.

Happy birthday, PS! This is probably my favorite Keane album. And what made special this anniversary is that I went to the record store, and they had the DVD version of the album (pretty rare to see over here!).

Posted by LP at 4:57pm, 14 Oct 2012

Happy B-day!! This is amazing album!! With this album you visited my country: Colombia. So 'Perfect Symmetry' is very special to me.

What a wonderful album to have its birthday celebrated! The entire thing is nothing but beauty and genius! Love you guys so much!

Happy birthday PS! I loved this album at the time and still do- it will always be 'the fun album' for me. I also loved all the daring sartorial experiements with yellow, patterned and *gasp* pink, T shirts after all those years in black, navy and more black. I know they're all embarrassed by it now and think that they looked like idiots, but I rather liked a bit of bright colour. Did anyone notice, how, when Strangeland came out, all the critics were like: 'They should've made another album like Perfect Symmetry, it was so different and creative' yet I don't remember anyone raving about PS when it came out, and everyone said they should stuck to what they knew!!

Happy 4th Birthday, Perfect Symmetry!! I absolutely love this album, I think it is brilliant. A true masterpiece!

Posted by Miklyssary at 12:38pm, 14 Oct 2012

A lot of fans left the band after Perfect Symmetry, but I'm not. I think in this album You, guys, wanted to show us that you are stay in life, everything is good and now You live with expirience but not with feelings only. IMHO. I love You, Keane.

my favorite song, they know where i live i can not get this album yet

Posted by chaplan at 8:51am, 14 Oct 2012

Happy Birthday, Perfect Symmetry!!! As with anything in life, CHANGE is inevitable. A lot may have disliked Perfect Symmetry but it's a very nice album. It's about change and taking risks and KEANE just nailed it without losing THAT KEANE touch that makes them unique from any other band in this world! This is a very poetic album, i must say.

Posted by anouk23 at 7:44am, 14 Oct 2012

I'm so glad that my first Keane concert is perfect symmetry tour. :) Love from Taiwan-Chi

Posted by rainborn8228 at 7:31am, 14 Oct 2012

4 years went fast! I remember being so excited for it to come out, now it reminds me a lot of my first high school year and screaming oooohh while driving with my friends love you guys!!

Posted by carlaricque at 7:30am, 14 Oct 2012

Happy 4th birthday Perfect Symmetry. A wonderful album!! I love it! I love Spiralling, Perfect Symmetry, Again and Again, You Haven't Told Me Anything and Black Burning Heart! :D

Posted by Daniel (Peru) at 4:35am, 14 Oct 2012

Love Black Burning Heart too. The lyrics is so KEANE. Just love it.

Posted by pvbb at 3:44am, 14 Oct 2012

Such and underrated and amazing album. It's my favourite and I love it so much! I hope you play more of its songs when you come back to Argentina. HAPPY ANNIVERSARY PERFECT SYMMETRY!!

Happy Birthday!!! Been listening to it all day!!

Posted by Hattie at 1:39am, 14 Oct 2012

CONGRATULATIONS! :) I absolutely love Perfect Symmetry. It's such a wonderful (and frequently underrated) piece of art. This song is one of my favourites as well - just like Black Burning Heart, Spiralling, Again and Again, The Lovers Are Losing... fine, all of them. We'd love it if you played more songs off this record live! Love you guys! Can't wait to see you next week in Lisbon & Porto.

happy birthday PS !!! It's amazing :D

Posted by keanixa (Chile) at 11:53pm, 13 Oct 2012

The single edit definitely catches me out a couple of times.. But to be serious, if the Holy Truth is indeed truth, choose it anyway.

Posted by mwfearnley at 11:38pm, 13 Oct 2012

Wow, I can't believe it's 4 years old. Happy Anniversary! Brilliant album - can't wait to hear some of it in Madrid on Friday - yay, so excited.
