Keane Hopes And Fears
There are other people in these songs, but like Hughes and Oxley-Rice, they're only present as a framework for his projectile vocals, and to reflect his morally superior intentions or ideas about friendship, music and love. In Donald Fagen The Nightfly to nebulous notions of life and love and hazy references to "change" and "the light," Chaplin peppers his songs with vague pronouns-- she, you, and it-- but I predominates.
And when he's not condescending "I don't know you and I don't want you till the moment your eyes open"he's engaging in a kind of self-centered therapy "Everybody's changing and I don't feel the same" that wears increasingly thin from the moment Hopes and Fears begins.

Where Symmetry started off daring and then grew calm, Strangeland saves the relatively adventurous tracks for its back half—notably "Black Rain," which apes Radiohead rather than Coldplay Coki Officer Mood Dub its canned drum machine beat, muffled synth currents, and falsetto vocals.
