Like so many bands/artists lately, one "hit" or song you really want to hear. A few tunes that are ok, and rest just stuff to fill up some space. Not enough variation or anything unique in the rest, that hard to tell one song from another. After listening to the entire disc several times, would I buy a ticket to hear/see them live? No way. Don't think I'd go even if the ticket was free just to hear one song. It has just got too easy in past 15 years or so for more mediocre bands/artists to crowd the market with marginal to poor material.

A must have album

"Somepeople tend to compare KEANE with Coldplay. I could say KEANE is somehow inspired by Coldplay but in no way it is a B class Coldplay. This is a masterpiece debut wich contains some songs that qualifies as perfect 4 minute pop songs such as Somewhere Only We Know and Everybody's Changing. A interesting fact is that in this album there are NO GUITAR. With is great because I rather have an excellent piano playing all over than a mediocre guitar as a merely filler. The voice is so fine, so polished, so relaxing that this is a perfect album to listen to while driving, while spending time with your significant other, in the pre sleep hours or in the first hours of the morning. It will certainly lift up your mood. Oh, and by the way relaxed and polished in now way means cliche or cheesy."
Keane is best Pop Bang for the buck.

"Keane has got to be the best band to come along in years, if you love brilliant pop music (esp. of the UK variety). Keane songs are indeed brilliant.

Every track on this record is amazing. Most are upbeat, but even the slower ones stick in your head.

I hope this band writes more stuff FAST. And how about a concert DVD or two? If you haven't heard them live yet...they're even better!

BTW, I haven't had a single problem backing up a Dualdisc yet. I like to back up all my CD's so I don't have to worry about scratching them, etc, and store the originals in a safe place. I've backed up both the CD and DVD sides of my Dualdiscs on recordable CD/DVD's no problem. I'm a Mac/OSX user, though, so I'm able to back up even copy-protected CD's without issue too. Can't speak for windows OS."
