Biography

The last time most of us saw Doves it was Glastonbury Festival 2003, headlining Sunday night against Moby. This wasn’t really a problem for them though. The year before, they’d been mid afternoon, playing in glorious weather, a crowd of people wide-eyed at the prospect of whole weekend opening up in front of them to the soundtrack of Catch The Sun. On the Sunday night, under the ... Read more in Amazon's Doves Store

Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

In an about-face that could alienate technophiles, this group of dance revisionists celebrate guitars and "real instruments" in the face of processed music. The Williams brothers and their mate Jim Goodwin first had a hit with the disco-charged "Ain't No Love (Ain't No Use)," but they became disillusioned with the Manchester scene, picked up guitars, and formed the Doves--a band determined to infuse raw emotion into their music. From instrumental opener "Firesuite," which showcases their rumbling, restrained guitar firepower, to the tumbling acoustic shanty "Sea Song" to the balmy Technique-era New Order rocker "Catch the Sun," none of the album's 11 tracks bears any real resemblance to any other (and, in this rare instance, that's a positive). The Doves have produced an outstanding debut album in Lost Souls, alternately melancholy and uplifting, sparkling darkly with charged atmospherics. --Mike Pattenden

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the year's best releases January 4, 2001
Format:Audio CD
When I first heard of Doves, they were lumped into the Travis/Radiohead category that every British rock band seems to be lumped into these days. After listening to Lost Souls, this comparison is not quite accurate. Now, Radiohead has been my favorite band for quite a while, but their styles are very different. Missing from Lost Souls is the angst of The Bends and OK Computer, but it keeps the epic scope of those albums. Doves have a very unique way of blending dark riffs with beautiful melodies, definitely shown on songs such as the title track, "Sea Song", and "Break Me Gently". Overall, the album has the feel of The Verve more than Radiohead, but it's still one of the best releases of this year. One of the previous reviewers mentioned a similar feeling to OK Computer when listening to this album, and I have to agree with them. Although it doesn't sound like Radiohead, it evokes the feeling of a "true album", one that has a continuous epic feeling to it, and one that must be listened to many times before it can fully be appreciated. Lost Souls has already turned into one of my favorite albums, and will probably stay that way for quite some time. If you're a fan of British rock, this one comes highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Found "Souls" November 24, 2004
Format:Audio CD
The Doves made their stunning debut with "Lost Souls," a brooding, symphonic rock album that is impossible to forget. The Manchester group delivers the basics -- simple melodies are layered with richly psychedelic sound, anguished songs about how it's "a crime to feel." If it is, then the Doves are accessories to the crime.

"Firesuite" opens the album in a unique way -- a chaotic rumble that turns into midtempo pop, dissolves into eerie sound effects, and then turns into a shudderingly epic rock song. On that note, the Doves dive into the heady rock of "Here It Comes" and the acoustically-based ballad "Man Who Told Everything." Other songs chart more twisted territory -- "Break Me Gently" is a mournful, grey-toned psychedelic head trip.

It's a rarity to find an album with no filler at all -- the closest thing "Lost Souls" has is "Reprise." It's even rarer to find an album than can do just about any kind of Brit-rock -- the Doves demonstrate power pop, shades of hard rock, and large doses of psychedelica. What's more, they often weave them all together at once.

The music is so seamless and smooth that it's a bit of a shock to see all that was involved in making it. The instrumentation is pretty standard: mellow acoustic guitar, some backing electric guitars, roiling basslines and solid drums. Then the brooding music is wrapped up in a few sound samples and windy-sounding programming. It sounds simple, but the results are mind-bendingly.

Vocalist/guitarist Jimi Goodwin has a great voice for this music -- his vocals actually manage to be the centerpiece of the music. He sounds strong and a bit depressed, as he sings about escaping from his life, burning houses and the loss of a love.

You have to believe bands like DOVES don't deal well with comparisons to others. That's good, because in many ways, they compare to no other band out there, but in others, there are stong similarities. Perhaps one measure of the "goodness" of a new group is in the likelyhood other would ever copy them. For DOVES the answer is never. In a field of thousands, they have managed to create a unique, begulling sound.
I love this disk. Here's why:
1. It's really long. I'm tired of CD's only half full. With LOST SOULS, you get what you pay for. If you don't warm up quickly to one track, you will certainly find another you like among the 15 tunes here. The kind of disk you hear once and think, "I bet I'm going to like this a lot..." Then after 7 or 8 plays on the Car Stereo, you are in love.
2. I sense an underlying theme. Too many groups today toss together whatever they have been collecting for the past years. Perhaps that's true for DOVES, but if so, they hid it well.
3. The music is full-bodied, well produced. No Miller Lite here. At times, simple, but always rich. From a guitar and piano to the sounds of a full orchestra. You get it here.
4. Some songs: a. FIRESUITE sets the stage...tells you what's on the way. I thought I was hearing a Pink Floyd disk at first. 95% instrmental, Firesuite has some unintelligible lyrics in the backgound. Sort of "Enigma"-tic
b. HERE IT COMES starts out with some beautiful background piano, then moves toward a whining organ from any rock band of the 60's. Liner notes include a credit to Velvet Underground. Perhaps their influence was present here. But in the end this song reminded me more if "Morrisey" or "The Smiths."

5.0 out of 5 stars Derivative? Even if it is, what "original" work isn't? November 16, 2000
Format:Audio CD
i don't know why everybody seems so concerned about disecting this album into a sum of parts. i can't recall reading so many reviews about one cd that speak more of what it sounds like than how good it really is on it's own.(radiohead, happy mondays, blah blah blah... just to prove how full of it some professional reviewers are, i read that 'rise' is cool dance music!) this has to be one of the best 'alt-rock' albums since my bloody valentine's 'loveless'. i find this cd to be very cohesive and even though every song doesn't sound the same, it is easy to see the musical connection between them. unfortunately , due to the band's history or whatever arbitrary reason there is for ignoring a superb debut such as this, the critics seem to be doing just that,or just brushing it off as a curiosity, which it definitely is NOT. so...about the music: although this is not happy music by any stretch, each song seeps slowly into your mind and commands more and more listens. if i HAD to describe it in terms of similarities: think the guitar strumming, piano and melody of 'oscillate wildly' from THE SMITHS on'louder than bombs' filtered through the haze of My Bloody Valentine with expert mastery of subtle sound effects that only a background in electronic music can provide....well, i tried. just buy it, you won't regret it. also, i guess the previous reviewer really didn't really listen to the bonus tracks, because they are hardly filler or curiosities (they are even better than some other tracks), and fit perfectly into the 'flow' of the album.
