5.0 out of 5 stars A Masterpiece, 26 Mar. 2003
This review is from: The Last Broadcast (Audio CD)
How this album has not won countless awards is simply beyond me, it is as my introduction suggests an aural masterpiece.
Doves had been seen with 'Lost Souls' as shoe gazers ploughing out good, but pretty down beat songs. Well, news for one and all, 'The Last Broadcast' will not have you singing from the rafters on a sunny day, but it is a truly uplifting experience.
Kicking of properly with 'Words', a bright chiming guitar riff drives the song along with an optimism unheard of when Doves are mentioned.
This is then lifted even higher with one of the singles of 2002, 'There Goes The Fear', a seven minute masterclass of songwriting, lyrically and musically it smashes boundaries of quality pop writing to bits.
From then on, things remain at this peak. 'M62 Song', 'New York' and then the magnificent 'Sattelites', could it get any better? Yes: 'Pounding' does exactly what it says in the title. A driving drum beat pushes this fantastic song along towards it's totally irresistable chorus.
To finish off with a medley of winners like 'Last Broadcast', 'Sulphur Man' and the wonderful 'Caught By the River' simply add to what this CD / album is:
Perfect.
