KEANE (ONLY the 1st two albums)

After Keane’s second record, I was done with them. I tried to give the third record a chance…. and I was like “uhh, no.” Then all the records that followed…. ugh, and more ugh. I heard a newer song of theirs in the grocery store a few weeks ago and I was like “what the HELL is this?” What happened to them?

I saw them in 2005, and was blown away. They played Saturday Night Live right around that time, too, and it was killer. Hopes and Fears is a timeless friggin’ record. The second one lost a bit…. but still good. Then…. third record, I was like “da fuq?” Then I just stopped following their work.

Go back to your epic, melancholy piano roots, guys. The top 40 dance/R&B thing is NOT working for you.
