Biography

The last time most of us saw Doves it was Glastonbury Festival 2003, headlining Sunday night against Moby. This wasn’t really a problem for them though. The year before, they’d been mid afternoon, playing in glorious weather, a crowd of people wide-eyed at the prospect of whole weekend opening up in front of them to the soundtrack of Catch The Sun. On the Sunday night, under the ... Read more in Amazon's Doves Store

We often love albums because they were the soundtrack to certain events or periods of our lives. This album sounds like, feels like, and possibly even smells like the early Summer of 2000 and a period of my life that I do occasionally look back on and wonder if it was really some quirky Film4 offering. Enough of that. I still listen to this incredible album regularly and it never fails to amaze and transport me away from all the rubbish of modern life. Eclectic, dark, brooding, stirring and errrrrm lovely I suppose. In my humblest of opinions, Doves have never quite lived up to this - their debut, and sadly, neither has this decade. Here's to the night in 2000 when I went with a mate of mine to see a band called Terris at The Roadmender in Northampton - we listened to Lost Souls in the car there and back - Terris were supported by a band called Coldplay - my they got big very quick. It was me that shouted 'get yer hair cut' at Chris Martin, which he did. And because he did, Gwyneth fell for him and they got married. No need to thank me Chris. I was sober and straight that night, high only on that rare feeling where you really love an album and cant wait to play it again - Lost Souls - absolute genius and a beautiful beautiful album.

The Doves made their stunning debut with "Lost Souls," a brooding, symphonic rock album that is impossible to forget. The Manchester group delivers the basics -- simple melodies are layered with richly psychedelic sound, anguished songs about how it's "a crime to feel." If it is, then the Doves are accessories to the crime.
"Firesuite" opens the album in a unique way -- a chaotic rumble that turns into midtempo pop, dissolves into eerie sound effects, and then turns into a shudderingly epic rock song. On that note, the Doves dive into the heady rock of "Here It Comes" and the acoustically-based ballad "Man Who Told Everything." Other songs chart more twisted territory -- "Break Me Gently" is a mournful, grey-toned psychedelic head trip.
It's a rarity to find an album with no filler at all -- the closest thing "Lost Souls" has is "Reprise." It's even rarer to find an album than can do just about any kind of Brit-rock -- the Doves demonstrate power pop, shades of hard rock, and large doses of psychedelica. What's more, they often weave them all together at once.
The music is so seamless and smooth that it's a bit of a shock to see all that was involved in making it. The instrumentation is pretty standard: mellow acoustic guitar, some backing electric guitars, roiling basslines and solid drums. Then the brooding music is wrapped up in a few sound samples and windy-sounding programming. It sounds simple, but the results are mind-bendingly.
Vocalist/guitarist Jimi Goodwin has a great voice for this music -- his vocals actually manage to be the centerpiece of the music. He sounds strong and a bit depressed, as he sings about escaping from his life, burning houses and the loss of a love.

Following the mediocre new albums from Oasis and Embrace, it was up to Doves to restore my faith in 'epic' British guitar music. 'Lost Souls' succeeds spectacularly on this count. If Noel Gallagher had had any ambition, 'Standing on the shoulder of giants' might have sounded a little more like this record rather than the below-par Beatles facsimile he offered us instead. Although at 1 hour long the LP is perhaps a little too much for one sitting, the sheer quality of the songs and the originality of the way they are produced makes it a compelling debut. Particular highlights are the singles 'The Cedar Room', 'Sea Song' and 'Here It Comes' but the spectacular 'Rise', the La's-esque 'Melody Calls' and the gorgeous 'The Man Who Told Everything' demonstrate the sheer depth of this record. As the mark I've given it indicates, it's not a faultless album; a couple of the songs drag a little (the title track in particular sounds great but doesn't really go anywhere interesting), but this is still the first great debut of the year and one of the best albums of the year full stop. A triumph.

This is the first album by Doves, and is it the best? Hmmmm. As far as debuts go its the best since Oasis' Definitely Maybe

I have owned this album for about 3 years and have constantly listened to it. It stayed in my cd player in my car throughout my 4th year of university.

It is, put very simply, an amazing album. The listener will not be disappointed in any way, if they are a fan of top british guitar/indie rock.

Lost Souls has everything you could ask for: rousing instrumental tracks (firesuite, reprise), feel good rock (The Cedar Room), chilled out mood tracks (break me gently, here it comes) familiar, chart tracks (catch the sun) and an amazingly eerie track to finish it off (a house).

The only problem is deciding which album of the three they have released is the best? The follow up entitled The Last Broadcast has caught by the river and there goes the fear, whilst the newest album Some Cities has the title track and almost forgot myself.

solution: buy all three from the new and used section in here and then see for yourself - i personally have to hand it to Lost Souls (due enormously to The Cedar Room and A House)
