I don't mind Keane. They're like Coldplay at Coldplay's rare honest, shining moments (see Yellow). Sure, Tom doesn't need to belt every chorus like he's trying to convince a guy not to jump off a bridge, but I don't understand people who say he has a limited range. He's got a much wider middle vocal range than most pop/rock singers today and he doesn't need to leapfrog into falsetto like our yodeling friend Chris.

Whoever the douchebag keyboard player is who bops around like a moron at the live shows is quite good at coming up with lines and hooks in the studio, and the drummer ain't bad. Saw them live and they carried a theatre crowd really well - reminded me of a mini ersatz U2.

I'll try to download their first album and see if it's better than Under The Iron Sea.

I hate to say this but I have to... I can't stand this band... Specially after I saw them live. Before that I didn't mind them, I knew a couple of songs but they didn't caught my attention... But after their live show... Sorry... But I can't stand them...

This happened to me with Styx, so it's ok.

Invincible's chorus is a rip-off of Everbody's Changing melody, that's true, but Invincible it's so much better... much more moving and beautiful, with an amazing guitar work by God Bellamy and an orgasmic solo. Everybody's changing isn't better in any possible way. IMO of course.

Everybody's Changing never was more than an ok song, Invincible was just my favourite song of 2006. I don't know if you have seen this song played live... I saw... and it's out of this world... I mean...

I have tickets to see them this month. I hope they don't suck.

I liked Hopes and Fears, but they went downhill with Under the Iron Sea.

Everybody's Changing is a good pop song, but the title sounds like a sex ed video supplied by Health Canada for fourth grade sex ed class.

And I don't agree that WITS sounds like Keane... not even Keane could write an awful song like that one...
Concordo contigo (I agree with you)!

^^Portuguese people !! I'm portuguese too


Anyway please don't compare Keane and Muse or I may have a stroke... I know Invincible isn't great (live it was amazing specially the guitar part) but please... Not Keane...

Well, looks like I'm the only Invincible fan around here...


And I agree with you annie, Muse and Keane shouldn't even be compared, those two bands live in totally different worlds. Keane are a bunch of nice guys who make decent pop songs, Muse are three amazing musicians
