You can do it! Just don't look at this thread for a couple of days.

If it makes you feel any better elfa, I haven't listened yet, either. Been too busy at work, and took the time to listen to some streams online instead.

Plus, I'm still listening to a few other things I previously downloaded.

Big Grin

When I move from this city, I am going to miss the local record store that always "accidentally" sells new records/CDs a few days before the actual release.

I was a bit surprised to see Kingdom of Rust of the shelf, and on sale. But what the hell...I could not pass it up.

Best of album of the year?



And I got two tickets to see them in May in Minneapolis.

Is the general consensus that this is another great album? I'm out of the loop, but I can't wait to hear new Doves

I'm afraid I won't get to see them live this time around though

I've listened to the album three times so far. It will obviously need more spins to properly sink in, but so far my feeling is that it starts off really strong, has a couple of less memorable songs in the middle, then picks up again near the end. I'm surprised by how much more I like Jetstream

Popmatters apparently hated the second half of the album:

Doves: Kingdom of Rust < Music | PopMatters

Allmusic gave it the exact same score they've given every other Doves album.

allmusic ((( Kingdom of Rust > Overview )))

That's a bit disappointing. Guess I'll find out for myself tomorrow.

i wouldn't worry. i'm a huge Doves fan, but my biggest complaint is that their albums lose steam in the 2nd half (with the exception of Lost Souls). this one definitely doesn't.

for some reason, Doves get absolutely no respect in the US, unfairly dismissed as inferior versions of Coldplay or Radiohead. the critical reception is very lukewarm...just look at Rolling Stone's pathetic three star review. what a bunch of crap. most of these reviewers give it a half listen and then try to find comparisons to the latest Brit Indie rock flavors of the month.

All I have to say is fuck Rolling Stone. I do not pay attention to their reviews. I listen to what I like and what sounds good. I rely on my ears for my review.

Audiophile and I were discussing this earlier. There always seems to be some skepticism or general lack of respect for a lot of British artists in American music press. To some extent I suppose i can understand it, but to give Lost Souls 4 stars and say it is no better or worse than any of their other work? Seriously?

I was happily surprised to see Elbow get so much end of the year buzz last year, as the album didn't really get any press/critic buzz at all here when it was released.
