5.0 out of 5 stars One of my faves of 2005 - for sure
There is so much going on that on a simple background listen one would miss. I suppose generally it's a chilled album but my body has been discovered to be uncontrollably jigging to the groove. Grooves which tend to be constant in structure with only slight alterations along the way.

I'm now gonna go against all that I've just written and say the word...

3.0 out of 5 stars Not really worth the extra few pounds
Okay, because you're reading this, I take it you like Doves to some extent. The album's a great listen, and there are some truly amazing tracks on there, but I still believe that it's nowhere near as breathtaking as "Lost Souls", a recommendation for those who don't own it yet. I suggest you read the reviews of the standard 1 disc version of this album for more in-depth...

3.0 out of 5 stars A disappointing follow-up to The Last Broadcast, 21 Feb. 2005
This review is from: Some Cities (Audio CD)
The Doves' "The Last Broadcast" came out in the summer of 2002 and it was immediately one of the best releases of the year. Now after almost three years Doves are back with their third album "Some Cites." Before I go too far into the review let me say there are some great songs. The title track and "black and white town" are both great songs and start the album off in a great direction. Some other highlights are "one of these days" and "someday soon." The rest of the album is painfully average. There aren't any terrible songs, but the album just doesn't go anywhere. Most of the songs remind of stuff on their first album "Lost Souls," but not quite as grandiose.
My biggest complaint is the song "walk in fire." It sounds too much like the Doves' classic "there goes the fear." After two years one would expect that a new album would not follow some of the same ground so closely. Overall "Some Cities" reminds me more of "Lost Souls." The Doves' new album was one of the most anticipated albums of the year. With releases from Coldplay, Oasis, and Idlewild all coming up, the Doves' "Some Cities" does not live up the promise of "The Last Broadcast."

3.0 out of 5 stars JUST BUY BLACK AND WHITE TOWN, 22 Feb. 2005
This review is from: Some Cities (Audio CD)
Well talk about using one good single to sell and album. I heard black and white town and straight away couldnt wait for the album, now i wish i hadnt bothered. None of the other songs on the album have the strength and quality of B+W town. Ive listened to it a few times now and it doesnt even compare to last broadcast, and i hate so say it but maybe it should have been theire last broadcast.
