Been listening to Doves for some time now and have to say, a solid band with some excellent tunes. At times they're way too poppy for my tastes (most of The Last Broadcast - although There Goes the Fear is amazing), but I especially like their psychedelic side, as witnessed with what is easily their best album Lost Souls (stuff like Break Me Gently and Rise).

One thing about Lost Souls that I didn't see mentioned is that I find the album to very schizophrenic, for a lack of a better word. The first half is very atmospheric and psychedelic, with more emphasis on instruments, with the vocals being highly distorted. When the Catch the Sun/The Man Who Told Everything/The Cedar Room comes in, it's like a different band altogether. The vocals are clear, and sometimes unfortunately so - Jimi Goodwin can't really sing, as so many of British popular singers don't, like Ian Brown, Shaun Ryder, Bobby Gillespie and so on. I find to be his performance on The Man Who Told Everything particularly grating, but strangely enough, it fits perfectly to the immense The Cedar Room.

I didn't find the next two albums compelling, apart from a couple of songs on The Last Broadcast, but Kingdom of Rust persuaded me that Lost Souls wasn't an accident. A truly excellent effort, with the last 4 songs being particularly great, moving away from that Coldplay-like mellow sound that infested some of their post-Lost Souls work, and moving something that could be called a new direction for them. This is why I hope those rumors about them going on hiatus aren't true.

Doves are far more than a solid band, they are one of the most incredible live acts I have ever seen. They aren't really going on a hiatus, they just admit that they take a long time working on new material and don't particular enjoy the recording process.... unfortunately they also don't tour in between albums.

I hate it when this thread gets bumped... I'm always happy to discuss my love for Doves, but it always reminds me how long we have to wait for them to get their act together and do something new/tour in earnest .

same here.
It has been several years since I have seen them perform live. I wish they would return to Atlanta.

Aww, I may be said at their absence, but I'm happy for those Doves fans around here that will get to go, .

Anyone who's actually seen them before in this thread needs to never bitch again, or I will shoot you.
