When a group of guys is so lovely, talented and diligent, it's natural to them to overcome any challenge. Good luck Keane!

I couldn't find those flats when I went to Bexhill on a Strangeland pilgrimage. The SLC was packed when I went there!

Ah!! He votado a Keane para el Artwork. He de decir que Under the Iron Sea, tenia también un excelente Artwork. Sus dibujos eran psicodélicos pero era arte puro plasmado en música. Marisa. Barcelona.

Hola Keane. Tengo la revista Q 317. La hemos traducido al español. Pero no podemos captar con la exactitud que merece el idioma inglés, las expresiones tan autóctonas. Hablar de Keane es hablar de respeto por la música, de ambición, de dudas, en definitiva de ser los mejores. Un Tom Chaplin con una infancia de soledad, un Tim muy melancólico y receptivo, pero con ganas enormes de crear una composición excelente, encontrar aquella obra de arte que lo sentencie a lo más alto; Un Tom con un ego muy elevado con ganas de ser querido por unos fans desconocidos. Strangeland es un álbum magnífico. De alto nivel musical. Y con un sonido excelente. El mejor sonido. Diria que no llega a todo el mundo. Has de tener oído y un gran gusto por la música. Tengo la plena conciencia que habrá otro álbum después de Strangeland. Pero ha de ser como siempre Tom and Tim sónicament juntos. Ha de transmitir esperanza al mundo y la fuerza sentimental de Hopes and Faires. Y sobre todo una luz hacia el futuro. Otro estilo más rock pero sin perder el "seny" como decimos en Catalunya. Des de Barcelona un petonàs y un beso de cariño de Sir. Timothy Rice. Ojalá pudiera ver Sea Fog Studio con mi marido y el traductor.

I also went to Bexhill - on a Keane pilgrimage! Had a lovely coffee and bread pud at the Sovereign Light Cafe, took lots of pictures. Love this artwork (also have the t-shirt!) My lovely husband indulges my love for Keane, and he's going with me to Bournmouth dec 4, can't wait now.

I would't be surprised if it won---not only because it's great but because Keane fans are known for doing anything to make you guys win whatever!

Tried recreating the artwork, but with me in the picture, when i visited Bexhill. Sadly the flats had bloody scaffolding on them, which ruined it a bit...

Posted by Piscilla_Holland at 6:37pm, 22 Nov 2012

I think if it wins, it would be fair for people to say it was just a popularity contest. It wouldn't be my first choice for the vote, though don't get me wrong: I do like the artwork.
