Reviews of the latest songs from Keane and Young Jeezy Feat. Ne-Yo

Posted on

Keane, ”Silenced by the Night”
The gratifyingly retro first single from the piano-led Brit-poppers’ fourth studio album crackles with candy-colored ’80s synths and soaring open-air choruses. But if it sounds familiar, that’s because it is — ever heard of the Killers? BMarc Snetiker

Young Jeezy Feat. Ne-Yo, ”Leave You Alone”
Producer Warren G has regulated plenty of summits between rugged grime and silky soul, which makes this track’s claustrophobic, piano-soaked beats an excellent go-between for Jeezy’s tough bark and Ne-Yo’s lovey-dovey croon. B+Kyle Anderson
