In The Sea of E [BOUCD 6605]


"Full of intricate, mystifying music" (The Cut, 09/1987)

"Their best effort to date. An excellent, if somewhat mysterious, album" (Option, 1987)

"Cold, dark and violent music" (Melody Maker, 09/1987)

"Another magic mixture of electro-pop ballads, unnerving ambience and intricate lyrical twists. Also includes some meditational chanting in the form of the twisted and beautiful Creatura" (Record Collector, 09/2003)

"Living Light finds Keane's knack for opening his albums with enduring pop gems happily intact, and it's when Keane strips away everything that isn't entirely necessary that he really scores. The four extra tracks also harbour further glints of genius" (Whisperin' & Hollerin', 09/2003)

"Cold, dark and violent" (Melody Maker, 09/1987)
