About this item

Arriving in 2000, with impeccable credentials (they'd released three beautiful EPs on Casino Records) Doves' debut album was astonishing in its completeness. Deep, doomy but always beautiful, there was a seamlessness to its 12 songs which created a good old-fashioned Proper Album vibe; a record that ebbed and flowed, and a record to lose yourself in. There's a filmic quality to a lot of the sound; a brooding, symphonic, melancholy air which soothes as it grooves. And groove it does: Doves have always had the bottom end well and truly sorted out, and no less than on this, their gorgeous, mellow, darkly comforting debut. What a mix! 

STAFF COMMENTS

Andy says: Doves’ debut was a stunning, cinematic, beautiful, doomy and heavily melancholic masterpiece. With their Factory Records affiliations, this band were just what Manchester ( and by definition therefore: Music in general) needed after the emptiness of ( latter day) Oasis and the banality of “ Britpop”.
