If there was one common thread throughout the 'Silent Hours', it's the psychadelic-drenched sound of The Doves, yet there's much more to the equation. This CD is also about emotional soundscapes, each song taking the listener on brief flights, from the solemn and introspective to a fast-paced whirlwind tour. Yet there is a Britpop sensibility to contrast the psychadelia and passionate vibes. The influences are subtle, from Coldplay's passionate serenades, the starry-eyed journeys of The Bends/OK Computer Radiohead, and Suede's 'Dog Man Star' surreal grandiosity. Speaking of Suede, there's a touch of Bernard Butler-type guitarwork, from a delicate touch, jaunty rolling riffs to glam grittiness. Overall this CD is sparkling, surreal, and spacey. It allows you to float for awhile, yet keeping you bound to the world of guitars. Slowdive meets The Doves, early Verve meets Gomez' last album, just enough to keep you earthbound.

I agree w/ the other reviewers musical comparisons but not 3 stars.. this album is fantastic and deserves 5 stars.
True they do sound a bit like the Doves musically but the vocalist has his own style, delivery and the lyrics are excellent to boot.
This was one OVERLOOKED band, probably it was this utter lack of attention/ reason for them throwing in the towel after just 2 1/2 records...here in the States they are beyond obscure, which is really a shame.
