So we're not allowed to express an opinion on something if we don't like it?

Not at all, rebelstar - It's the reasoning for the vehement hatred I have a problem with.

i love music's ability to elevate or completely change my mood. with keane, their singles have been massively overplayed but 'can't stop now' is an incredibly uplifting song. it always makes me smile  smile.gif

I think that is the main reason I like Keane too, widowspider. Most of the music I like - whatever genre - has that uplifting quality. I actively seek out music that raises the hairs on my neck, and listen to it subsequently for just that reason. That's also the reason I favour electronic dance music over all other genres - the best examples of it actually exist to change moods and elevate emotions, be that in a club, or between your headphones. Vocal or rock bands are often too angsty or depressing to give this 'upliftment', which is where bands like Coldplay, Keane, Snow Patrol, Doves etc, are different. They also happen to be incredibly popular.

the problem i have with keane and i guess its the reason why a lot of people don't like them is that they are doing emotion by numbers.

i agree totally with what widowspider is saying about uplifting, emotional music. i used to love bands like embrace. when 'all you good good people' came out i bought each version and saw how this small fragile tune became an epic uplifting anthem. each time i listened to it it touched me, excited me, made my heart speed up, raised the hairs on the back of my neck.

the problem is, the 'uplifting ballad' is now hackneyed and cliche, keys and strings are a short cut to supposed songwriting greatness, a substitute for real emotion. coldplay reached a peak with 'rush of blood' and unfortunately we have now got to put up with bands following their power ballad blueprint to a t. and people think keane are different because they don't have a guitar whereas it just cuts down their palette, their range of sounds.

keane's biggest crime, however, is that they have nothing to say. bland empty emotion lite cliches. sure, lots of bands are guilty of this but when they picked up their brit award it was a sad day for british music. 'wow, we're just three kids from sussex. thanks a lot' wheres the attitude? wheres the emotion? wheres the passion? in a world where the majority of the music we hear is bland demographic friendly chart pap surely our 'rock' bands can inspire a little danger or excitement instead of looking like they are picking up an essay writing award - 'why i want to be a pop star when i grow up' by that fat one out of keane, aged 12 and a half.

wheres the clash when you need them? or the pistols? can you see why the libertines are so popular? why a band churning out such shite as the others are so popular? why though i hate the others i respect them?
