As for stirring shit...you have all of what, 12 posts as of right now? You have mentioned something about a Arcade Fire leak and made a comment about U2 stealing from the Beatles.

Cowards hide behind alters. Even with two usernames here...I am not hiding anything. Everyone knows who zoney!/zonelistener is....as well as my other alters.

What do you have to hide, Chris Martin?
stating the obvious, about u2 stealing a little from the beatles currently, and predicting that the new arcade fire will probably leak soon...how is that stirring shit?

the title of this thread wasn't "keane sucks", it was "keane kinda sucks". there's a difference there. and there was a question in the original post.

regarding the coldplay issue...look back, i've tried to keep the discussion focused on keane not coldplay.

i honestly don't know what your problem is and i frankly don't care. but i have no desire to argue with you anymore.

Well, you probably have heard "Is It Any Wonder" before. It used to be called "Zoo Station". lol.

As for the alter discussion... I'm lost.

Keane is a really good band...They're fairly new and I see them getting better. I met the guys a few years back in a bar in Boston and they are the nicest, most humble people. Their music is pretty melancholy, but Tom's voice is amazing. If he went back to playing the guitar and they used less synth, Keane would be a better band...Lyrically, for a "new" band, they're not too bad. Basically in Keane I see a good band with a lot of potential to be a better band...

I'm not gonna say much because this is clearly a negative thread and I love Keane. They're very possibly my favorite band of this decade.

Okay, what I like about Keane:

1. The melodies! Such beautiful songs with just a piano and drums. Generally I'm nuts about guitar oriented rock but here I don't find myself missing the guitar at all. Shows me that if music created from a few instruments is good enough, then nothing else matters.

2. Tom's voice. He carries the songs so well. Great range and he sounds like a pro reaching pretty much any pitch effortlessly. I find his voice a lot more appealing than say, Chris Martin's... if we have to bring Coldplay into this.

Effortless is the word here. They don't sound like they're trying too hard like U2 on HTDAAB or The Killers on Sam's Town. So Is It Any Wonder sounds like it is inspired by U2. Big whoop. I think it stands on it's own quite well. You know, many people in EYKIW say stuff like, U2 is playing pure pop music now, so what? Does everything have to have guitars? Um, no. And Keane is the perfect example of pure pop done deliciously well. Hopes & Fears is what I wished ATYCLB would have been. Under The Iron Sea is what I wish HTDAAB would have been. The former is bright and sunny. The latter is dark and serious. Both brilliant.

The singer can't carry a tune, people.

You all might find this amusing, or want to beat someone, either way.

The DJ on my radio station started to play that Wonder song and he goes, "Here's Keane! They sound a lot like U2"

Are you sure you're listening to the same Keane I am?

I quite prefer Hopes and Fears to Under the Iron Sea.

I love the melodies and simple beauty of the songs on the Hopes and Fears, and all the songs seem so effortless (to borrow Zootlesque's word).

Under the Iron Sea doesn't have that extra little something special that Hopes and Fears has.

Keane are ok, but nothing special IMO. Maybe I've just had my fill of sensitive British bands making lovely melancholic music.

Is It Any Wonder (esp. the intro) actually sounds more like EBTTRT to me. Don't know why everyone keeps comparing it to Zoo Station.
