didn't need to know but decided to say it twice?!



Seems like you are really sore about not being one of these so-called "cool kids" (can anyone tell me what this is?). I kinda feel bad for this emptyness you feel.

Since it is nearly Christmas, and I am in the spirit, I will PM YOU and tell you my alters outside of zoney! and zonelistener.

Merry Christmas, Indra.

AND....moving on....I only know a few songs. I think they are probably decent pop songs.

I own their two albums, have seen them three times live and have two of their recent U.K. limited release (straight from the soundboard) live recordings and Tom Chaplin has never had a problem hitting the high notes.

I'm not talking about any high notes. I'm talking about any random note that matches the music. He's all over the place.

That just isn't true.

That's not at all what I was talking about.

I was saying that if anyone thinks the tone of singing between Bono and Tom are the same, they are bonkers.
At the moment, I'd have to say that Tom has a better range and style of singing. Probably due to his youth and the fact that Bono has like 25 years of smoking behind him.
I enjoy Tom's voice and I don't see it out of place on any song.
Potato, poh-tah-toe.

Ok, but I prefer singers who can actually sing.

Well, I can hear bits of both, but mostly it sounds like Zoo Station to me. Someone (on this board, I think) made a mash-up of the 2 songs, and the similarities were pretty spot-on. I still have it on my hard drive somewhere...

Also, doesn't the band absolutely love U2, and even said they were trying to go after the "Achtung Baby" sound with one of their albums? I remember reading an article about that, but I may be wrong. I personally don't have a major opinion on the band itself - my brother absolutely loves them, so that's pretty much all of I've heard of them. *shrug*

Disagreed. Under The Iron Sea is even more calculated and forced than U2's last albums.

Well, the intro is EBTTRT but the rest of the song is totally Bottoms (Zoo Station mix). Just a fee changes and it turns in the Keane song.
The fake guitars in IIAW make me think about Edge's work with his guitar in the live performances of Zoo Station.

hmm, i think tom is a great singer. i don't see him as the problem at all. it's the music that seems a little uninteresting most of the time to me. and that's a bit of a shame, because that voice could really shine in some great songs.

thanks for the 5 stars btw.

The music works to showcase his voice, not overshadow it.

That's why they aren't that musically interesting.

Well, apart from the fact they're mainly keyboard, drums, and vocals.

I will give them that they're something fresh being a band without guitar, and they do make good pop, and that Tom is probably better at singing than Chris Martin. As a band I prefer Coldplay.
(and if any Tom/Chris comparison should be made with Bono, they should be made with Bono that was actually their age, it's ridiculous comparing a 26/29 year old and a 46 year old. also the comparison would be more valid if all three bands made the same kind of music)

That said....I wish he'd go for the type of singing he uses in Is it any wonder more often, and less so something like Cristal ball. Same goes for the band.

Ha, thanks for adding that. But please, please don't compare HTDAAB to Sam's Town. One has good songs, the other doesn't. And that's coming from someone who actually liked Hot Fuss A LOT.

I've heard a couple of songs by Keane, they never did that much for me.

And yes, IIAW? reminds me of Bottoms to some extent (with the nicked EBTTRT riff tacked at the beginning).
