I agree, definately. Everybody's got their problems, regardless of the fact that they go up on stage every night or not. It's just sometimes it's easy to forget while you're in the midst of hero worshipping someone....! ;)

Ok, this might be sort of random, but I thought I might as well get a semi-discussion going on.

 

I was watching the Strangers DVD last night (the tour doc) and something Tim said stood out to me "Sometimes I get horribly depressed". Now, he could have been saying this in jest, but I don't know. I'm listening to 'Snowed Under' right now, and I feel like I just know exactly what this song is about (I've suffered with depression, as well). So, do you people think that Tim might actually be depressed (not MAJORLY, or anything, just wondering)? It means absoluetly nothing to me, but it'd actually be kind of interesting for me to know. I've taken a lot of the songs and applied them to my life, my feelings, and it'd be kind of cool to know that they actually WERE written about that. Or something.

 

You can't be a musical genious and be perfectly sane at the same time. Tim is truly the powerhouse behind Keane. He reminds me of Robert Smith from the Cure in terms of songwriting style and a disconnection from the world vibe. To us, he seems like a wreck but fine in his own mind. Depressing minds make for great music, just wonder what his wife thinks off all this.

No you're not! I heard it through the webstream (of course no radio station in Iceland will play it so soon :/ ..) and after a few listens i liked it. It is not as catchy as the songs of their first album but it is a grower and i really liked it. Really U2-esque. Can't wait for the rest of the album :)

actually it's not that bad in my opinion (unfortunately U2 influenced...forgive me U2 fans, lol :curtain:), i'm looking forward to hear the new stuff...but i think IIAW definitely too weak for to be a single... :sick:

"Is It Any Wonder?" was one of my most anticipated songs of the year. Now that I finally heard it, I'm just like WHY?! It's not a good song in my opinion, and by Keane standards it's awful. It remind me of "Vertigo" mixed with like Boyzone. I know they're capable of much better. I'm still really looking forward to their album, but my expections are definitely lowered now. Sorry for the rant lol.

many ppl think, tom sounds like bono now. but i don't think so. he sounds like the good old tom and not like bono at all.

 

but i'm glad that the new album will be not a record full of ballads like hamburg song.

i think hamburg song is a bit to slow for my taste.

I agree with Hamburg Song. It would have been a very boring album.

When I listened to the IIAW for the first time, I just thought : 'It's not like U2 as they say.' But then I heard it for 4 times and I heard that it's like U2 a little bit. But the opinions are different for every person.

i have to say, i've listen to the new song only one time. but i still think keane doesn't sound like u2 now.

 

but let's see what the whole album brings ;)
