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 did nothing for me.
I liked Keane better.

Much better than Keane or Snow Patrol. I prefer Kaiser Chiefs out of the newer bands that have appeared recently.

I own both albums and I think that they're both about the same quality (a mixture of brilliant songs and then boring ones IMHO). For me both albums are split in half between fantastic songs and bad ones. Really it comes down to the type of music you like. Keane are all about emotional ballads and little else. This sometimes works well (somewhere only we know/we might as well be strangers ) but other times you end up with a dreary durge that seems to last forever. Basically think a band of the 'Trying To Throw Yours Arms Around The World'-mixed-with a bit-of-Coldplay ilk.

Snow Patrol also do ballads but they remind me more of Oasis style ballads. They are also considerably LOUDER than Keane (compare Spitting Games or Chocolate to SOWK or Bedshaped).

So, if you can only buy one and I'd recommend getting both because for all the bad tracks they're some GREAT ones, I'd base it around which style you prefer because the two groups are very different. Think of it this way, whichever one you choose is a great album!

They both sucked really, really bad. It's no excuse for being rude to one another, but it's pretty much the answer.

As for the bands in question, I'd say to skip over both of them. Neither one is very interesting and after 10 listens they become stale. I haven't listened to the Keane cd since the week I purchased it.

Not sure if it can all be blamed on the new U2 album/tour as I've been noticing it on other (non-U2) music forums as well.

I have a few people on my "will strangle if I ever meet in person" list (none currently on this forum however ).
