Doves create great moods,
This review is from: The Last Broadcast (Audio CD)
I think that some of the reviewers miss the point in complaining (both about Last Broadcast and Lost Souls) that there is too much filler or that the quality is too patchy ; what i think doves are brilliant at is creating moods and keeping them, such that each of the albums is greater than the sum of its parts. They are brilliantly playlisted, such that you have an excellent overall pitch but with highlights interspersed throughout.
Words is certainly one of the most uplifting songs from the last few years, even if it does seem to borrow from "The Only One I Know" fairly liberally - then again, The Stone Roses didnt invent any riffs and no-one complains about that.
I would definitely recommend this album and lost souls to people who like two out of ; Radiohead, Coldplay, Smiths, New Order, Verve, Black, Oasis.
Can't wait to see them live.
