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

Product Description

Amazon.com

The Last Broadcast sees Doves frontman Jimi Goodwin and multi-instrumentalist brothers Andy and Jez Williams soaring to new if perhaps grandiose heights. The thundering opening beat and spiraling guitars of "Words" are reminiscent of Ride at their bombastic peak, and "There Goes the Fear" has relentlessly reverberating Latin rhythms, New Order-influenced guitars, and sweeping vocals that are nothing less than breathtaking. Quiet reprieve comes with "M62," a delicate haunting reworking of King Crimson's "Moonchild," bizarrely recorded under the M62 flyover in Manchester, and its desolate atmospherics are juxtaposed against the remainder of the album. With the thrusting onslaught of "Pounding," the obligatory earthy rock of "N.Y.," and the joyous pastoral acoustic-led splendor of "Caught by the River," the Doves have crafted a liberating sophomore album that happily combines the uplifting anthemic essence of dance with good old rock & roll. --Christopher Barret

Customer Reviews

In my opinion, The Last Broadcast is one of the best albums of the year.

"Friday's Dust" is a haunting acoustic tune with delicate string and horn arrangements..a very cool song.

The Doves sophmore release, The Last Broadcast, bucks the traditional sophmore slump and takes it's place as a stunning version of Brit-pop. While not as dramatic, moody and brooding as the debut album, The Last Broadcast is definitely the Doves' chance to shine as songwriters and as musicians.
In comparison to their earlier release, Lost Souls, The Last Broadcast is definitely a happier and more accessible album. What the album lacks in dark honesty, it makes over tenfold in perfect songwriting.It almost reeks with pop motifs and has definite brit pop sound. A song like "N.Y." feels like a Blur song with Oasis pop, and "Satellites" is just riddled with gospel-influences, which instantly reminds me of Sting's last album. Those are just a few examples, at least. This doesn't detract from any of the songs (all of these influences are good), but it's not as groundbreaking or mood-setting as the debut. A song like "Pounding," which is my favorite track, has fairly basic guitar playing and musicality, yet has all the perfect hooks to draw the listener closer into the music.
While I am a devouted fan to their debut, The Last Broadcast is an ideal follow up and a perfect way for the Doves to become one of the focal points of the new brit-pop movement. Their songwriting and lyricism is still up to par, and any appreciator of just good rock and roll would immensely enjoy this CD.

Doves are a unique band. Coming from a background in dance music (as the band Sub Sub), they applied their sensibilities in that genre to create a wholly original sound as a rock and roll band. They're compared to bands like Radiohead and Coldplay much too often, and Last Broadcast is proof of why.
Doves know how to make moody, ambient music. But what they've become masters at is taking their soundscapes and turning them into warm, full rock songs. Their debut, Lost Souls, was the beginning of Doves honing their sound. Here, on Last Broadcast, the band is tighter and more focused. A killer intro preps you for something astonishing, and when "Words" blasts in, it delivers. A clever riff enhanced by lush, rich production and a disctinct tone of optimism, "Words" leaves most gloomy Britpop bands in the dust (Travis and Starsailor, pack your things).
Following the reggae-tinged "There Goes the Fear," the haunting King Crimson rework "M62 Song" drifts in as if from an ancient AM radio. Beautiful in every way, it echoes the work of Nick Drake and other long gone troubadours without feeling out of place within The Last Broadcast's greater framework.
Some songs miss ("Satellites" is too long and meandering), but the last four songs are as good as it gets, particularly "Pounding," a pulsing, driving anthem sure to be playing on a movie soundtrack sometime in the near future. Where Lost Sould petered out as an album, Last Broadcast ends with "The Sulphur Man" and "Caught by the River," both powerful, atmospheric arrangements that leave you wanting more.
Fortunately, for some customers, there is more. Some editions of Last Broadcast contain a bonus disc with four extra songs. Seek it out.

I've been listening to a promo copy of this since early April, so I've had some time with it. Simply put, this is a fantastic record - the most rewarding rock album since OK Computer, and current frontrunner for best of the year. Even better than Doves' stunning debut, 'Lost Souls.' Think of the best work from The Beatles, Radiohead and The Verve, add in a bit of electronica, turn the creativity meter all the way up.. it comes out sounding like music you've known forever, while remaining fresh and exciting. Jimi's voice is better than ever, and drummer Andy even gets a turn on the mic on 2 tracks. Great songwriting, gorgeous arrangements, and amazing detail.
There is zero filler here, as should be the case with every great record. A chilling intro gives birth to "Words," opening the album with waterfall-guitars and huge sound. "There Goes The Fear" is the first single, and possibly the best song of the year..love it. Next is the fragile and beautiful "M62 Song" - the acoustic guitar work on 'Broadcast' provide some of the best moments on the record. "N.Y." is simply a stunning rock song, one that melts into the spiritual and dreamy "Satellites." While still fantastic, this track ultimatley comes off as the brightest song on an album filled with bright songs. "Friday's Dust" is a haunting acoustic tune with delicate string and horn arrangements..a very cool song. After this comes one brilliant track after another to close the album - the relentless and soaring "Pounding," perfect melancholy dream-pop in "Last Broadcast"..by this point Doves have defied categorization, the only place for a song like "The Sulphur Man." The closer, "Caught By The River," is an anthem remeniscient of the very best of Oasis or The Verve.

It's hard for me to review this cd without referring back to Doves' debut record, "Lost Souls." It's also hard to pick a favorite between the two efforts. "The Last Broadcast" is positively sunny compared to its predecessor, but not necessarily warmer. Both albums have a number of absolutely stunning songs, as well as some of the best production I think I've ever heard.
Doves call to mind so many other artists, it's difficult to really describe their sound. Younger fans will hear bands like Radiohead (pre-Kid A), Oasis, and Coldplay. Older listeners will definitely pick up echoes of Tears for Fears and New Order. For some reason, I think TFF is the closest point of comparison. Doves has the same big melodic sound -- heavy guitars, thundering drums, haunting effects, distinct vocals -- yet their music is spacious and never cluttered.
Songs like "Words" and "There Goes the Fear," with their infectious hooks, may make the singles cut, but it's tracks like "Satellites," "Pounding," "the Sulphur Man," and "Caught by the River" that will take your breath away with their earnest beauty, haunting melodies, and soaring production.
