Hopes And Fears (2004)

EW's GRADE
B

Details Release Date: May 25, 2004; Lead Performance: Keane

The deluge of rainyday Britpop bands continues with Keane, who have a gimmick (no guitars) and a handful of emotive, if not entirely original, proclamations (''We Might as Well Be Strangers,'' in particular). Music to while away the time before the next Coldplay -- or Travis, or Starsailor, or Muse -- album arrives.
