Overview

For a brief period, Doves ruled the roost when it came to 21st century Brit-pop. Their music connected the dots between OK Computer-era Radiohead, Coldplay, and U2, a welcome combination for those unwilling to forgive U2's Pop or follow Radiohead down their Kid A rabbit hole. As a result, Lost Souls and The Last Broadcast both went platinum in the U.K., spawning no less than six Top 40 singles in the process. Those two albums dominate The Places Between, a greatest-hits compilation that focuses on the band's glory days. To their credit, Doves have yet to release a dud of a record -- even the band's lowest-selling album, Kingdom of Rust, went gold -- and they've collected their strongest material here, meaning the records that didn't sell as well are still represented by strong, melodic tracks. "Andalucia," the compilation's only new track, holds its own against 14 established hits, a sign that Doves aren't quite done with their reign of the U.K. charts. [For the true Doves fanatic, The Places Between was also released in a triple-disc package, including a bonus disc of rare recordings and a DVD featuring the band's music videos.]
