But a little better than before, maybe.
New single, I think.
Now they sound like a Torier version of Editors.
so that's no indication of quality.
me, Torier than you?
You *sound* Torier than me with yer Barnet accent, compared to my 'hard' Islington champagne socialism dulcet tones.
No really, this conversation is sillier than Keane. Hurrah!
although actually in a long-winded complicated manner i think Cameron winning the next election wouldn't be a bad thing in the long term although i'd hope to be out of the country by then.
Fuck off, you ghastly prole.
According to Radio One, it had guitars in, but to be honest, the song itself was so weak, wet and ineffectual, that I forgot what it sounded like immediately after it finished.
For this reason, all indie bands like Keane should be forced to include a 20 second metalcore breakdown at the end of each song - just to stir the listener out of their stupor.
hahahahaha that would RULE
just their piano put through some kerrr-azy effects.
the opening riff is hilarious, it's as if someone's 'cool' aunt wrote it.
They are from a piddly little town. Most artists from such places, although maybe retaining a fondness for their home, will seek to literally and artistically escape, whereas Keane wallow.
rather listen to Keane than these 'metal' bands that you all seem to love so much. Trivium etc.
Keane are shit, but they aren't as unbearable as most of the music people like 'Raz' listen to.
if you are open minded. From a technical standpoint, it is astounding and intricate.
Trivium and BFMV are shite, but there is alot of really good stuff out there.
To dismiss every band within a genre would be silly....
i've always thought metal was for divs.
Good joke. You should do stand up.
'these 'metal' bands'.
But I spose its all down to taste. I won't buy Keane, but I won't complain and spit at them like I would if Trivium came on the radio.
I'm not bothered if people think I sound like an old man, but at least Keane has some sort of form to it. Its nowhere near good, but its nowhere near unlistenable either. John Brainlove music, on the other hand, is like listening to a pneumatic drill.
I hope I didn't sound really uncool, then, guys. Twats.
you have a lot to learn. Hmm. Maybe it's because you aren't bored of form yet that you aren't interested in the lack/destruction/reduction of it. You're a modernist living in postmodern times. I reckon you'll be listening to John Cage and Stereolab in 5 years from now.
You never do.
"I'd rather listen to Keane than these 'metal' bands that you all seem to love so much. Trivium etc."
you sound like my dad.
You're on form today in terms of twattishness aren't you.
It sounds like AHA!
were expecting Keane to get better?
i think the only thing that really matters here is - Can the singer's face get any fatter?
Jeez...was there an accident with a time machine?
It's awful isn't it?
Another multi-plantinum selling smash, then.
Watch those platinum records role in...It means fuck all really.
How uncool is your dad?
Definite step in the right direction. If nobody else liked them, you'd love them...Good tune.
Jo Whiley made a point of saying there were no guitars in it, as if thats the whole basis of their success.
Probably is... :-/
Points of interest about Keane:
10. They are come from a well-off background
9. They've sold quite a bit
8. One of them has a face that could be used as a satellite dish
1. They don't use guitars
gave keane eight or something, and bearsuit five. i hate them.
Just had a listen and I quite like the sound but the lyrics are a complete re-hash of a lot of the stuff on their first album - the idea runs something like 'I can't quite find my place in the world and I feel all confused'. Ah, bless.
surely they know where they belong - sat in a leather armchair by the fire in an oak panelled drawing room.
No matter how desperate I am to prove to my idiotic so-called friends how God-damn awful they are, I am not going anywhere near that link.
i quite like this song. i have hopes and fears, i quite like that as well.
Before the Indie death aquad arrive!
but i lent that to a friend about two days after buying it and never asked for it back.
yeah, she thiefed my copy of 'permission to land' by the darkness too. gutted.
the NME were bigging up Keane when they first arrived on the scene, but as soon as they weren't 'cool' anymore with you indie scenesters it was Keane bashing all the way.
The same fate will meet the Arctic Monkeys me'thinks!
the NME liking Keane as much as they seem to like Arctic Monkeys. Obviously for aslong as a band is cool the NME are going to back them. If they backed shite uncool bands then they wouldnt sell any magazines
wrote 'keane' liek, 4 times on the NME student guide thingy.
Didn't they seem to turn on Coldplay a few weeks after massively hyping up X+Y (and giving it 9/10)?
they should turn on Coldplay because Chris Martin called his son Moses. Fool
like runny cheese, it has no edges.
