Keane vs U2

I love Keane's new single, "Is it Any Wonder."  I was listening to it on my iPod and it occured to me..

It sounds awfully similar to "Even Better Than the Real Thing," particularly in the opening techno-guitar riff.  Now, I heard the lead singer say at one of the Vertigo gigs (they were the opening act for the MSG October shows) that "Achtung Baby" was their biggest influence.  Maybe it was done unconsciously, or is it a a little tribute/rip-off?

Discuss.
