Any of their albums are good, Last Broadcast is overrated, Mel just started listening to them 4 months ago so don't listen to him

Lost Souls is their best, although Last Brodcast has some of my favorite singles.

I agree that Lost Souls is the best overall album, but The Last Broadcast's heights are higher for me.

New Doves = NSW cannot wait.

Indeed.

I can't wait for the new stuff. I hope they come out this way, because I'd love to see them live again :Pray:

I'd agree with that. For my ears, it actually has the most filler of all 3 of the albums... The good songs on it are so strong that they do make up for it, but it really isn't very enjoyable to listen to as a proper album for me.

I was listening to Cedar Room this morning. What a great song!!

Doves are so underrated. I know Coldplay gets a ton of hype through the media (I do enjoy Coldplay) but Doves have put out 3, 4-5 star albums with songs that could fill the arenas/stadiums. If Some Cities walked into a party X&Y would need to go home.

I can't wait!!

Its hard to believe Lost Souls is a debut album. Amazing.

really? I love Some Cities... it's the sound of a mature band who have honed their craft to pop perfection.

It is hard to believe I never got around to getting it. I love The Last Broadcast so I am always surprised to hear that it is not the one people love the most. I need to catch up fast.

They have 3 albums:

Lost Souls
Last Broadcast
Some Cities

If you want a well developed complete album (listen from start to finish) I would listen to Lost Souls. Just be sure to turn it up when you get to "Catch The Sun".

For a handful of great songs you can listen to right away you can't go wrong with Last Broadcast.

I would save Some Cities for last. Great album, but if you don't appreciate/listen to their previous work you won't enjoy Some Cities as much.

Enjoy

RedRocksU2,

To give some U2/Doves history.

I know Larry Mullen is a pretty big Doves fan. And they even opened up a few Vertigo shows in Europe (2005). With their new album coming out in April it would cool for them to open for U2 for an entire leg. Their sound is big enough to fill those stadiums
