Some Cities [CD + DVD] ~ Doves

5.0 out of 5 stars A fine album, 2 Mar 2005
Before it was released, I had my doubts as to whether "Some Cities" would be as good as "Lost Souls" and the excellent "The Last Broadcast." I needn't have worried as once again the Doves have delivered an outstanding album that promises to exclusively occupy your CD player for a fair old while after you get it home, with the band's instantly recognisable vocals and drums rehashed in a more 'live' sounding album which lacks the frenetic energy of "The Last Broadcast" without losing that indefinable quality that makes them such a good band. In all honesty, there isn't a weak track on the album; which has more than it's fair share of tracks that can send a shiver down your spine. People… Read more

I bought this album about 6 months ago solely on the strength of the track 'Fresh' on Steve Lamacq and am still listening to it on and off now. I wouldn't class it as mainstream hip-hop; the albumn's bass-heavy and fast-paced, with some jazzy tracks, but the main focus is on the sampling and great scratching: pretty impressive when combined with some of the guest MCs. Tracks like 'On Your Own Risk' and 'Know Why' are catchy without being cheesy. The album as a whole is definitely original.
Overall, I'd say this is the sort of album you'd be nodding your head to as you're getting ready to you go out - the kind of thing you wouldn't be embarrased to put on at a house party.
