  • While some rock groups have been known to lean heavily on electronic elements (Radiohead, the Flaming Lips), it's rare for an electronica act to morph into a rock band. But that's exactly what the Manchester, England dance trio Sub Sub did when they reinvented themselves as Doves. Surprisingly enough, the Britpop group's bold 2000 debut, LOST SOULS, arrived fully formed, revealing airy shoegazer atmospherics anchored by a muscular, stadium-ready sound.
  • The album opens with the dream-like "Firesuite," which gives way to the surging, soul-tinged "Here It Comes." Throughout the record, the band--consisting of Jimi Goodwin and brothers Jez and Andy Williams, who all share vocal and instrumental duties--maintains a hypnotically dark tone that's best showcased on the haunting "Sea Song" and the echo-laden "Rise." And unlike many front-loaded rock discs, LOST SOULS saves its most energetic, guitar-heavy tracks until later in the album, with the driving "Catch the Sun" and "The Cedar Room" (one of Doves' most soaringly anthemic songs) pushing things along. Hailed at the time by many UK publications as one of the strongest British rock debuts in years, LOST SOULS more than lives up to its lauded reputation and lays down a solid foundation for Doves' subsequent outings.
Professional Reviews
Q (1/01, p.90) - Included in Q's "50 Best Albums of 2000" - "...Heavy, sombre and lugubrious, it makes for seriously claustrophobic listening, until it takes a great gulp of euphoria..."

Magnet (1-2/01, p.87) - "...The group tries outdated post-disco...flange-smothered art pop...piano-key-mashing Britpop blues, Bragg-ish Labour folk and Ecstasy-riddled comedown drone with high-drama production..."

CMJ (12/00, p.54) - "...The earthy instrumental elements and complex, layered arrangements in aching epics...provide the winning shots....balancing the heady, psychedelic leanings with a couple sublime and somewhat stripped-down guitar-driven numbers..."

NME (Magazine) (12/30/00, p.77) - Ranked #8 in NME's "Top 50 Albums Of The Year".

NME (Magazine) (4/1/00, p.34) - 9 out of 10 - "...A serious and intense record....the first great album to come from Manchester since DEFINITELY MAYBE....they make being sad after drugs sound great."
