Keane kinda sucks.

I was listening to Under the Iron Sea the other day. Apart from Isn't it a wonder, i didn't really hear anything that i hadn't heard before. Rather boring album. An overrated band, imo.

Is their first album better?

I'm not sure about Keane. Is he injured?

The Defoe/Berbatov partnership is what Jol seems to be looking at now, but the big disappointment I think is Mido. He was on fire last term, been bit-part this season.

Keane don't suck, but they're one of the most overated bands of the last years. Their music is anything special, it is too much radio-friendly (it's far from being alternative as I hear so many times) and too much emulated - from other artists - and sometimes they bore me a lot.

the singer has a good voice, but it's like they miss something.

Keane sucks so loud. I can't believe anyone ever bought any of their records.

My Keane story: I was in a Barnes and Noble with my husband a while back. The music playing over the PA was so bad we were considering leaving the store. I went downstairs to find out what the horrible noise was. It was Keane's first album.

I can. I've bought their first album. And it's pretty good. Don't have the second one (and not planning on buying it either - same with X&Y ).

First album is great. Second is much the same really, but haven't worked out if this is a complement or a criticism.

I should get on a plane and come over there to give you a piece of my mind.

Agreed.

Similarly, I feel like I'm the only one who doesn't get Snow Patrol's appeal. I hear them, and they're just a big pile of meh.
