Doves Lost Souls US CD album
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

The songs that stuck out the most to me were:
*Melody Calls* - love the ending...
*Catch The Sun* - very catchy. first song I ever heard from them. heard it on last.fm
*Firesuite* - decent instrumental introduction to the CD.
*The Man Who Told Everything* - i just love this song. period.
*Darker* - very vibe-y and my favorite here. has a unique sway to the beat and lyric delivery that i eat up every time.
Avoid *Valley*, *Break Me Gently* and *A House*.
Recommended especially if you like melancholy vocals and mysterious production.
The amazingly moody "Sea Song" with its dangerous swelling musical loop is balanced by the giddy joy of "Catch the Sun." There's a few faltering points but the musical peaks are so amazing you forgive Doves for their minor stumbles.
A beautiful sensitive debut by an intelligent band who melds traditional instruments with an electronic saavy. Ignore the comparisons, these boys are mining their own gold.
More, please, more!
This band has a strong Coldplay link as heard in the guitar tone and motion. If Coldplay were to make a similar progression such as Radiohead made from OK Computer to Kid A, they may well come up with this album. Think of Badly Drawn Boy, Coldplay, and Travis, but with Noise and space surrounding the images of pop. Often the same emotion I get from Radiohead's latest works.
Firesuite and Catch the Sun were highlights for me, but this is definately an album I listen to cover to cover. Definately worth checking out for anyone, and a must purchase for us UK fans.
