Wonderful music!! Meaningful lyrics, and beautiful music come together to make every song in this a favourite of mine.
The songs are all very similar in style and have a lot of the same chord progressions and such. But if you love what they have, then you'll love every song! So for me, it's a benefit, for someone not so fond of Keane... well you might hate most of it then.
Keane is not the new Coldplay. I think Keane is better than Coldplay! I love the music on Hopes & Fears, the piano, the mood of the songs, and the lyrics. They're intelligent and thought-provoking, and then the music is just glorious. Moody at times, uplifting at others, it's always emotional and beautiful.
