i don't see how this album is any weaker than Lost Souls. it's incredible, IMO. early standouts are Winter Hill, 10:03, Spellbound, and Compulsion. and of course the title track is gorgeous as well.

Now you know how I feel with any and every piece of music I'm excited for, Elfafa.

Regardless, it's not long off by any means. We'll be enjoying it legally and with a clean conscience soon.

my concience is clear. if it weren't for illegal downloading, i would have never found this band and later purchased all their albums, which i plan on doing with this one. but continue to judge me at will.

Dinny worry yourself man. doves band are no stranger to illegal activities themselves.

Go grab it, enjoy it and then get yourself a ticket for the tour. Sorted!

Have a good one,

Nick

this album is amazing. not one weak track...it has a massive, epic sound, without compromising complexity in the songcraft.

hard to pick a favorite. i thought the title track was great when i first heard it, but there are 4 or 5 other songs that are even better. for now, i would say 10:03 and Spellbound are my favorites.

if you are a fan, i don't see how you could be disappointed.

I already loved Jetstream and Kingdom of Rust, found House of Mirrors this afternoon and I'm loving that too. I don't have the whole thing yet, but I'll check out that link.

I think the production alone on this album is enough to shatter the problem of lumping them in with other 'similar' British bands.

I've become too weak with leaks now that they often come with good sound quality.

Lifelines is a gorgeous closer.
