    I think Keane are a quality term. Good album - nothing much to it. Nice songs.

    that's the thing about keane though. . . they're NICE. I mean nice = boring, just coz its easy on the ears doesn't make it interesting or even good.

    Agree with Elle there, it's nice, but it's boring and belongs in Starbucks

    Didn't realise they were hated so much. Wouldn't call them bland. They do need to get a guitarist though.

    Well nice is a term that can be used for MOR bands really isn't, I mean Keane, nothing special, a bit alike a Ham and Cheese sandwich if you want - it's nice but you'd much prefer a breakfast roll yes??

    At the risk of getting flamed, I think Keane are quite good , bland , perhaps , boring , depending on your musical taste what's good about them... - Singers got a great voice (regardless of musical taste). - Different approach , no guitarist or bass player, - Doing well in the charts and actually writing their own music , as opposed to the sh**e that usually dominates it. - Catchy hooks , that's what a lot of good songwriting is about , doesn't matter how different / interesting / wierd you are if you can't remember the songs 20 mins after you heard them. - not bad for a debut album (I think?) anyway , not a huge fan of keane or anything just hate seeing people bashing stuff that because its not out on the fringe . There are so many bands/musicians that are lauded over by musical critics / press and their stuff is just climb up yer own a*se , lets be different for the sake of it and feck the idea that a song should be memorable. my 0.02 euro

    they are orwellian in their blandness the ministry of sound has released them to give the proles some sickly melodies to hum along with to be lulled and then bang.

    i like em cos they're different and they seem to be causing much more upset here than some bands who have tried to get people upset have (the darkness writing a song about public lice didnt really get headlines!) imagine, these days cradle of filth and marlyn manson(both DREADFUL bands aside from mansnos early stuff before he became a visual artist and overall big eejit) actually cause less upset than a figgin gilry suonding pack of public school boys! whats the world coming to!

    Surely you cant even get into the debate if you have not listened to the music. "I never heard them but they are crap" is effectively what your saying!!?? Amazing. Fact remain's is that Keane have sold records by the truck load & that over one million people bought them, it kind of puts the word "crap" into the minority opinion.

    So the fact that Vincent Van Gogh never sold a painting in his lifetime would then make him crap in your esteemed opinion ? Since Keane have sold 'millions of records' (the Louis Walsh Waiver) that makes them good does it ? Daniel O'Donnell has also sold millions of records, do you like him as well ?

    Ah Rev you cant even go there man thats way off line with regards to this debate & am surprised you even went there! Firstly, VVG paintings dont cost 19:99 to buy or come discounted in Tesco with a chart price of 14:99, secondly, VVG produced over 750 oil paintings excluding drawings and though not confirmed, people say he sold ONE painting, the rest were traded, Keane will make maybe 4 albums in their career. The fact that a VVG work of art sold for over 80 million suggets to me that he is good, desired, appreciated & that was never in doubt. I would also agree however that selling over a million records suggests popular opinion rests with the band in question, particulary when the act in question is an Indie Act. I like Keane, nothing particularly original at all but I like them. Next!?
