Is it any wonder I'm officially a proper fan now?,
This review is from: Is It Any Wonder (Audio CD)
When I first heard of Keane early 2004, I couldn't make up my mid whether I was a fan or not. Granted I sang their songs all the time, without thinking about it, but I wasn't sure what to make of them as a band. Maybe I thought it wasn't 'cool' to like them, who knows?
Anyway, all of that changed when I heard this song - it made me a fan. The synthesized guitar-riff at the beginning had me thinking, 'this sounds so cool'. Very different in a good way.
The lyrics are deep, if you listen carefully. I've read the lyrics are about war, which makes sense. Tom's vocals and the piano twinkling in the background, plus drums and lack of guitar make this band special. No wonder they are so popular and albums sell by truckloads. May they continue to produce good music of this quality:)
