Opinions please...

Anybody out there own the albums by Keane and Snow Patrol? Are they worth a purchase? I've heard a song or two from each and Keane sounds like a Coldplay wannabe (who of course is a U2 wannabe) but decent. I don't know what to think of Snow Patrol but U2 must think pretty highly of them if they are thinking about them for the tour.

Snow patrol only real good somg on Final Straw is Spitting Games, Run is good and the rest sorta boring but decent i actually like keane more than coldplay, HOpe and Fears has some good songs esp. Bed Shapped or just buy the Killers album if ya aint got it.

I really like the "Run" song by Snow Patrol. The Killers are great but I like Keane the best so far.

I've never really heard anything by either of those bands, but I've only heard great reviews for both.

I was in Barnes and Noble a few weeks back. There was a record playing that was soooooo bad I had to go downstairs to see who it was. It was Keane.

I don't recommend it. It was unlistenable.

The lead singer in Keane has a beautiful voice, but it is wasted on incredibly bland songs that make Coldplay sound like the Clash by comparison.

Snow Patrol are OK, I guess.

Snow Patrol.
I saw them live on this past tour for final straw, and also once before about...two years ago, I guess, before the last album was released. I enjoy all the albums, and seeing them live made me like the even more.

I picked up both a little while ago when my local record store had both of them on sale for really cheap. I was pleasantly surprised at how good they are. I think overall that I like Snow Patrol better. Final Straw has some great tunes on it. Keane is good too, though. Very mellow with some nice melodies.

Two of the best albums of 2004 for sure!

Yes. Off-key warbling at its worst.

And boring songs about nothing, really.

I think members of Keane and Coldplay played together back in the day.

I have the Keane CD I like it. I have only heard one song by Snow Patrol. I am tempted to get their cd though.
