Just discovered The Doves!

Wow! These guys are awesome!

I've known about them for awhile, but kept forgetting to give them a listen. I'm so glad I did!

I read reveiws of them being compared to Coldplay. To be honest, I think their music is more diverse than Coldplay. Both are great bands, but I think I prefer The Doves.


any other Doves fans here?

I love "The Last Broadcast", it should have gotten as much attention as "The Rush of Blood..." IMO.

I've had The Last Broadcast for months, but my mom has had it until recently, so I'll have to get it out. I used to be addicted to some of their songs.. especially There Goes the Fear Wonderful song.

I loved the Last Broadcast on my first listen.

Never got round to listening to it much afterward though.

Doves are wonderful One of my very favourite bands...lost souls and the last broadcast are both amazing. I've seen them live...lots, can't think of how many times - they are great live too. jimi
They are going to be releasing 'lost sides' (bsides) and a DVD ('where we're calling from) at the end of the month.

You defintiely have a found a great band.

WAY more diverse.

They are a great live band too.

Worth the travel if they don't play your area!

i really enjoyed their show last fall.

i was surprised to see that it was pretty much sold out here, because their music is not played at all here in Atlanta. i would love to see them live again.

am so jealous of everyone who have seen them cause i want to so bad.

and they get no airplay whatsoever here in halifax. although i heard there goes the fear played in my local winners store once. i nearly shit myself.

and i will be in atlanta for a whole hour in a few weeks. just a quick stop over on my way to florida. it's my first time in your lovely city.
