While Keane have used cheesy pop licks on their Perfect Symmetry album, Take That have picked up Tim Rice-Oxley's discarded hammering-piano technique for their own album, The Circus. It seems the rejuvenated five have also been listening to Coldplay's A Rush of Blood to The Head for inspiration, delivering a set of earnest songs full of chiming guitars and a dozen violins, which should soar through Wembley Stadium when they embark on their stadium tour next summer. There's even a song called Hold Up a Light, designed to encourage a lighters-aloft moment.
