Ok, Keane is a good band, very good indeed if you're into "the new Britpop" (i.e. Coldplay, Doves, Elbow, Franz Ferdinand, etc). But don't get mistaken. They are NOT like Coldplay. Here, a few good reasons to give Keane a try on your CD player:
a. Singer is far more better than Coldplay's would ever be.
b. Music is less pretentious, gloomy or depresive (so, don't expect anything like "The Bends" from Radiohead).
c. They are very "shiny" in their mood, and that's a strong point!!(play attention to the programming and some "electronic" effects. There's no abuse, so calm down, just like Munson does).
d. There's no guitar. I couldn't ever notice that, but, anyway, no one is gonna miss its sound.
Finally, we are, PERHAPS, in front of the birth of another great british pop band. It's just question to wait for their second CD. Remind me of Travis in their best moments ("Why does it always rain on me" and, namely, "Turn" and "Sing", very up tunes). So if liked "The man who", try this CD. But, if you're new into britsh pop, don't forget this: The Simths are the cathedral, Keane is a nice and little church.

The first song and the first North American release of this album, "Somewhere Only We Know" was stuck in my head, most particularly after being impressed with the band's performance on Saturday Night Live. I took a chance and bought their CD and haven't been able to get it out of my mind since. I take it with me to work, play it in my car, and drift off to sleep listening to it. Every song has a unique value and if you purchase it, you won't be disappointed with any track on the album.

It is such an injustice to put a snippet of a Rolling Stone ragazine review comparing Keane to Radiohead. How out of touch can Rolling Stone be? Keane is a pleasant-sounding band, one which knows how to craft a lush pop song. They are NOT a rock band. Radiohead is a rock band. If comparisons are so important to people, try last decade's Air Supply if you want to know another band Keane may sound like.

Keane is in a very unoriginal way, a great band. They are not up to anything different than their ancestors the Beatles were nor do they mark new territory from more recent bands like Travis and Coldplay. They do strike an interesting balance and in extrapolate on the Brit-pop theme in some new interesting ways.
The comparisons to Coldplay and in terms of the high tenor vocals, Travis are rightminded but not wholely explanitory. Keane sounds vaguely like both but resides clearly in the middle ground between the two. All three have natural pop sensability but Coldplay has mastered it to the delight of college students and TRL veiwers everywhere. Keane strikes tender balance between the pure "U2 pop" of Coldplay and the "Why wait for tomorrow when I could kill myself now-Pop" of Travis. Keane's album is about heartbreak but their taking it pretty well. Where Travis becomes sad and Coldplay waxes epic, Keane seems overly dramatic.
There are copius references to waking, light, and sleep pointing towards a simplistic metaphor of love and heartbreak. They continue to riff on these dramatic characterizations of love throughout the album and some of their chord progressions seem more reminisant of Broadway than of Oasis. There are some tracks that survive the showtune treatment and shine. "Somewhere Only We Know" is the obvious single and despite its troubling placement as track one remains a good song. "Everybody's Changing" has by far the most infectious piano riff on the entire album but the chorus is a near let down. The true mastery of Keane comes across in "She Has No Time".

Just because these guys are Britpop, doesn't mean that they should automatically be compared to greats like CP and RH.
I bought this CD based on
a) the price caught my attention as i am always looking for cool new bands for a cheap price
b) the sticker on the wrapper said the word that I always associate with cool music "anthemic".
I was disappointed with this CD from the getgo. I was expecting something great. What I got was something to keep on the shelf to gather dust. The CD is good for about the first listen, but then you can just put it back. I love Coldplay and Radiohead but let me tell you Keane is nothing like them. They're closer to a modern Beatles, than anything. If you want a good cheap CD to listen to over and over again buy something like Radiohead's "Hail to the Thief" or something. That is a good album!
But don't take my word for it, its not a bad album. It warrants the 3 stars I gave it. A more accurate grade would be a:
7/10 or a B-

Rodolfo, from San Francisco.
Maybe you got the feeling that me, like others, want everyone to hate Keane. This is not so; as I said before, there is potential here and 3 amazing tracks. However, to respond to your question "what constitutes soul?" there is not way to define that with words (there is, but it'd be too long).
Instead, I beg you to download The Shins' "Chutes Too Narrow" or Flaming Lips' "Yoshimi Battles...". Here you will find pop's immediacy, hooks, universal lyrics, and great singing. All the components Keane supposedly has. There I hope you find "soul"; not in order to never listen to Keane again, but just so that you can get my point.
PD. The attacks to people who didn't like this cd were unnecessary. Some may be snobs, but some others (like myself) didn't like Hopes and Fears, plain and simple. The idea of this is for possible buyers to read both sides of a coin.
