Keane are miles better than Travis - even with only 1 album under their belts. Ive seen em' live 4 times now - they are fantastic.

I disagree. Good Feelings is one of my favorite albums right now.

I saw Travis in concert, though. Not very good. Fran Healy talks more than Bono.

Good thing was that Remy Zero opened for them. Now that is a good band. I'm listening to them right now...

I hate the fact that you can't go anywhere or turn on the TV without hearing "Everybody's Changing..." which sounds like it should be the soundtrack to the video about puberty they show you in health class when you're 12.

They're pushing their single in Canada right now.

I'm not one for comparisons, but it sounded like Coldplay to me the first time I heard it and I had no idea they were British or whatever, so you can't assign some kind of motive to my thought.

I like the two singles.

I can't be bothered to listen to anything else of theirs though.

the tune I heard was the biggest radiohead ripoff yet.

how these guys got a deal, I've no idea.

oh wait, yes I do; record companies don't sign you unless you sound exactly like something else.
silly me.

I bought their album because it was cheap. I honestly like it. It's very understated. To my knowledge, the band has no guitarist, so they're not like so many other bands in that respect. I like the album more each time I listen to it. Favorites right now would be 'We Might As Well Be Strangers' and 'Bedshaped.'

Keane are great - Even better live but Its down to personal opinion. They've had the biggest selling album in the UK this year. I'm not sure if they'll do as well in America...

'This is the last time' is my favourite song! We might as well be strangers is amazing live as well!

I'm quite glad I knew of them before they got 'big' over here cos their smaller gigs were much better to when I saw them play bigger venues in London. So if they are playing small/cheap venues in the US I think its worth going.

Saw Keane support Travis as well and I think their performances were as good as each other.

I heard 'Somewhere Only We Know' on the radio this morning and thought it was really nice. I don't think I'd buy the album, but it was a good song. He has a really nice voice. I'm still trying to think of ways to describe them besides "really nice".

Bedshaped

I love Coldplay so the more bands that sound like them the better imo!

I dont' think they sound like them. I can pick Martin's voice out of a crowd, I would take me 2-3 guesses to get Keane.


Anyone know if they are named after Roy Keane?

Well, I ended up buying the tickets anyway... figured that for $25 it was not that much of a risk... and I guess I was lucky because I checked right after and they were sold out.

Guess I need to listen in to some other songs though. Anyone kind enough to send me some MP3s?

I think Keane are really overrated, I think this article sums up what I think of them

Quote:
Keane aren’t a ‘bad’ band. They’re not interesting enough for that. But their sheer okay-ness, their inane niceness and inability to emote anything in their songs other than reciting a bunch of bland clichés about half-felt emotions is what should make them so utterly offensive. Music is supposed to incite reaction. Stir-up passion. And if a band can’t raise anything more than an apathetic shrug, then they should be hurled onto a burning pyre along with the rest of the say-nothing celeb-age crap.
I love Travis, I have seen the live twice. I have also seen Coldplay, back before they were famous and you could buy a ticket for £11 ($21) on the night of the concert and you could meet Chris Martin after the concert and go to their aftershow party and you and your friends were the only people there. /memories. I think Keane sound nothing like either of them, I also think Coldplay were awful live but this was before they did a lot of touring. Some folk here really love them though so it just depends on the individual. A gig always means a good night out though.
