Muze PNote With their third outing, SOME CITIES, Doves created their most cohesive album to date. While the British trio's debut, LOST SOULS, conjured up a wonderfully melancholy mood, and its follow-up, THE LAST BROADCAST, expanded the band's sonic palette, SOME CITIES sees Doves fine-tuning their sound with the strengths of both previous releases. Atmospheric rock remains the group's calling card, as best exemplified by the shimmering "Almost Forgot Myself," the string-laden "The Storm," and the woozy "Shadows of Salford." Although the album is filled with mid-tempo tunes, "Black and White Town" picks up the pace with a Motown-like backbeat, "Walk in Fire" builds to a thrilling crescendo (much like THE LAST BROADCAST's "There Goes the Fear"), and "Sky Starts Falling" presents the trio in a buoyant, rocked-out mode. Crafting three excellent albums in a row is a tall order for any band, but with SOME CITIES, Doves have done exactly that.

Professional Reviews

Rolling Stone (No. 969, p.114)
- 3 stars out of 5 - "[B]rightens up the widescreen gloom of their 2000 debut, LOST SOULS, dishing out hopeful, multitracked choruses and liquid guitars..."

Spin (p.92)
- "[E]ven tracks that start off small and lonesome build to OK COMPUTER arena levels." - Grade: B

Entertainment Weekly (No. 809, p.73)
- "[C]ondenses the spacey sprawl of previous works for a tighter album, yet still maintains the Doves' distinct ethereality....[A] wondrously exhilarating, shimmering pop masterpiece." - Grade: A-

Uncut (p.94)
- 4 stars out of 5 - "[R]ich and bold and quite beautiful....This wonderful, distinct album makes Doves automatically leaders of the pack."

Mojo (Publisher)
- 3 stars out of 5 - "[With] the beautiful, flute-laced, stop-start lament of 'Someday Soon', the epically inclined 'Walk In Fire' and the Air-like ambience of 'The Storm'."
