Lost Souls

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Mark Schwartz
With the majestic Brit pop of Oasis and Blur sagging into post-millennial bloat, it is only a matter of time before a new crop of shambling rockers take over the shop. Manchester's Doves are a trio of ex-techno producers with a flair for the cinematic, from the piano-bar noir of "Here It Comes" to the Eastern tripadelica of "The Cedar Room." A suite of remarkably strong songs ranging from melancholy dirges to transcendent pop invokes fellow Mancunians My Bloody Valentine, the Smiths, and even New Order, making Lost Souls a most auspicious debut.

All Music Guide - MacKenzie Wilson
Hailing from the scene that brought the defining sounds of the Smiths, the Stone Roses, Oasis, James, and the Charlatans UK, Doves is another Brit-pop band playing around with depressing lyrical imagery and embryonic soundscapes that made the Mancunian circuit so popular throughout the '80s and '90s. Gloriously basking in the ethereal ones before them, their debut Lost Souls is a shoegazing twist of emotional bliss. Music hasn't sounded so heavenly since Radiohead and The Verve. The dozen-track look into streaming psychedelia taps into melodic waves of love lorn and sadness, especially on songs like "Rise" and "Lost Souls." The mood rouses and the positive clamor of "The Cedar Room" becomes the album's brassy anthem, very Oasis-like. Frontman/bassist Jimi Goodwin drools like a swooning Damon Albarn during "Here It Comes" and whooshing guitar licks from Jez Williams recall the sounds of Noel Gallagher. NME boldly claims it as the best debut album since Definitely Maybe. They're onto something good. If only Liam and Noel could calm down a bit and find that mesmerizing nature once again. [In October 2000, Lost Souls was issued in America on Astralwerks with three added bonus tracks not included on the original version].

    It grows on ya'

    My first listen of "Catch the Sun" sold me on this album. It just happened to be that all of the other tracks were similarly astounding. The best time to listen to this album is near sunset, while stoking the barbecue, and sipping down a nice pale ale. I bought this album in 2001 and still enjoy it today. My 8-year old daughter loves to sing along too.

    Just Can't Stop Listening To This

    That pretty much sums up my review. I bought this disc three wks ago and I just can't get it out of the CD player! The songs cut through to the inner recesses of my mind but never seem to leave. Like Pink Floyd may sound like without the bombast but with John Cale/Lou Reed production.

    stunning!

    the music swirls about your head in a stormy, hazy atmosphere....sometimes dark and haunting, other times thought provoking and uplifting...but the album flows wonderfully from one song to the next...it takes a few listens to really get into the music and take it all in but it gets more satisfying with every listen!

    Good Music?? When did that start again?

    I wish that about 100 other bands could have put out an album this good in the last couple of years. While all of the people weened on excellent music have had to suffer inexcusably through about 5 years of poppy junk on the radio and TV here in the US, the Brits have proven once again they are still the best rock musicians in the world. The Doves show in this release that musical experimentation and good songwriting will never go out of style. Lyrically, it could have been better, but the music is unmatched by all but a very few bands. It's worth buying, or ripping, if that is your pleasure.
