Added DiffLines:

* AnachronismStew: In "Perfect Symmetry", most of the lyrics reference modern technology ("Scrolling through the paragraphs, Clicking through the photographs", "I dream in emails"), but this line: "As the needle, slips into the run out groove" is about the more old-school vinyl records.

** "We Might As Well Be Strangers," as well. Given that their main instrument is a piano and one of their most common themes is the feeling of being left behind by others, there are quite a few to be found in their catalogue

Keane's origins date back to 1993, when Rice-Oxley and his friend Dominic Scott got together with Hughes to form a rock band known as ''Lotus Eaters'' while studying at the University College, London. The group played covers of songs from their favorite musicians, such as {{U2}} and Music/TheBeatles. In 1997, Chaplin joined the band as the lead vocalist, while Rice-Oxley moved to piano. The title of the band changed to ''Cherry Keane'', named after a friend of Chaplin's mother. Shortly after she died of cancer, the name was shortened to ''Keane''. They made their debut live appearance in 1998.

Scott left the band in 2001 to continue his education after Keane's self-produced promotional singles had limited success. The band was discovered in 2002 by Simon Williams, who had been responsible for discovering {{Coldplay}}. They released their first commercial single, Everybody's Changing, in 2003. The attention they recieved from this track allowed them to sign with Island Records. Their debut album, ''Hopes and Fears'', was released in 2004. It achieved great commercial success and won them the 2005 BRIT awards for Best British Album and British Breakthrough Act.

* AlbumTitleDrop: Subverted in that the song "The Iron Sea" is instrumental. Instead, the lyrics in "Crystal Ball" provide the name drop.

to:

* AlbumTitleDrop: Subverted Each album plays with it differently:
** ''Hopes and Fears'' comes from a line
in "Snowed Under," a BSide to "Somewhere Only We Know" that wasn't on the song "The album itself (that is, until the UpdatedRerelease five years later).
** ''Under The
Iron Sea" Sea'' is instrumental. Instead, the lyrics dropped in "Crystal Ball" provide Ball," which is on the name drop.album; the track before it on the album is called "The Iron Sea," but it's an instrumental.
** ''Perfect Symmetry'' just has a title track that drops the title in the lyrics.
** ''Strangeland'' has a title track that wound up not making it on the album proper, but was available on the deluxe edition.
