Product Description

'Strangers' tells the story of Tom Chaplin, Tim Rice-Oxley and Richard Hughes, who formed Keane in '97 at school in Sussex, did their first gig in '98, signed a record deal in 2003, released their debut album 'Hopes & Fears' in 2004 and went on to conquer the world with a voice, a piano and a set of drums. The film charts Keane's musical progression from a four-piece guitar band to the three-piece piano-based group that they've become today, and shows how they went on from playing tiny gigs on the UK pub circuit, to winning 2 Brits awards and selling nearly 5 million albums around the world.

This 2 DVD set features a 1 hour behind the scenes film of the band on the road, 16 live performances, 2 photo galleries, 6 promo videos, 2 'making of' videos, various concert visuals and Richards kitchen sink, all of which adds up to a must-have for any self-respecting Keane fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding! 29 Nov 2005
By C. Page
Format:DVD
Keane really have got it made. An original sound and an ability to create beautifully crafted songs that last in the memory. Indeed it's a testament to the quality of their material, that they have had such success on the back of one album. I still haven't tired of listening to Hopes and Fears, and everyone in my family loves their stuff, from my parents down to my four year old daughter, all which only goes to prove you can't beat a good melody! I have seen Keane perform live on TV a few times but was keen (excuse the pun) to see more.
Hence my excitement when Strangers was released, and what a treat it is! You can choose to watch the documentary or just the live stuff which is useful, even if the menu's are a little confusing at first. The interviews with the band confirmed my opinion that they are a bunch of sensitive, talented and intelligent musicians capable of writing such beautiful songs that you wonder how a band that look so young could possibly write such mature material. Hearing the wondrous ballads 'On a day like today' and 'She has no time' live, is a moving experience indeed. The performances are all great, especially the rousing renditions of 'Bend and break' and 'Everybody's changing' at the Wireless festival. There is a nice mix in this DVD of the smaller intimate gigs throught to the bigger festival type gigs. This is nicely portrayed in the compilation of 'Bedshaped' which progresses from a back room studio rendition through to pub gig, small venue and culminating in a full blown festival performance. (Although it would have been good if they had included a single performance of Bedshaped so as to fully appreciate it).

2.0 out of 5 stars Great band, appalling DVD 9 Jan 2006
Format:DVD
I love Keane and their great music and so was pleased when they released this DVD. However it is absolutely blighted by an awful menu system. Instead of providing a standard top level menu and sub menus, you have to sit though the documentary and wait for sub menus to pop up from time to time. If you just want to watch the videos you are stuffed because you have to sit through the documentary and wait for the menu you want to pop up somewhere before you can access what you want.
The production company should hang their heads in shame for spoiling what is otherwise great material by trying to be arty. They have instead created something which is almost unusable. I still have not found the videos for Everybodys Changing, and Somewhere we Belong... and they were the reasons I bought it.
I gave 2 stars because I love this band and their music. The DVD is the worst I have ever come across...

3.0 out of 5 stars Great view, just a shame I can't find my way! 25 April 2010
By Matt182
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This DVD had been in my wish list for a long time before purchasing it very recently. I had bought Under the Iron sea back last September and then Hopes and fears last January so this was one DVD that I was interested in after becoming a big fan of the band. There's just something really melancholic in their music which is hauntingly beautiful.
The DVD itself, especially the documentary part and the additional hidden documentary really gives us a look inside this band's music. It shows us what they're like when they're not on stage, their thoughts and feelings, and Tim's explanations of the songs are quite interesting. I would never have worked out This is the last time in the same way it's supposed to be read! There are great live performances from all over the world, and a good history of the band before they became famous, with archive videos, and their first gig which was in the same pub as Chris Martin from Coldplay. There are old recordings and performances of the band way back from 1998. There's a history of how the band came together, a past member, and how Tom came to join, which he modestly admits 'made the band'. If you are a Keane fan then this is a must have DVD for you.
On the other side this is a really confusing and awfully constructed DVD! There are 2 discs with 2 parts of the documentary and also live recordings on each disc. Then there is also hidden 'interactive' sections on both DVD's.

Instead of having the documentary all on 1 DVD, and then the live performances and videos on another it has all been split up and is pretty messy. I was really confused after going through both DVD's and not being able to find the tons of extras which were just not in the menu. The menu simply has the `Documentary' and `Live' sections.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great 19 July 2009
Format:DVD
I love Keane a lot, and I feel this DVD gives and interesting insight into what touring was like for them. It also helps us to understand why the band began to feel the pressures which eventually led to them taking an unscheduled break in 2006 - Tim Rice-Oxley is shown trying to write in the back of the tourbus.
The live performances are, as ever, wonderful. Keane are and always will be amazing live because of the sheer genius but simplicity of their music and their talent for it. Tom Chaplin's voice, while much improved today, still makes each and every song perfect.
I particularly liked the little Bedshaped compilation. It is fascinating to see the band progress from shy, amateur performers to shy but incredibly talented professional artists. It also interested me to hear their story, told by them to us, about how they met each other when they were infants, progressed through school, fought outside music class, started a band, got jobs, started performing and lost their guitarist, Dominic Scott.
One part of the DVD features them arguing about something (though it is never made clear what it is) which shows us they are just normal people and their world is not suddenly perfect because they're famous. There's also a sweet bit where Richard commends thousands of people for coming to see them in the rain although the band certainly didn't enjoy getting wet. It's nice to see that they don't take us for granted.
The only problem I have with it is that for some reason I can't pause it, as pressing the pause and play button only turns the interactive mode on and off. Instead, I have to just put one of the side videos on while I pop out of the room, which isn't exactly practical unless it is a long video.
Otherwise, if you are a Keane fan this is a must-have because it is factual and entertaining at the same time.
