Doves are Lost Souls. They’re the types to schmooze with Pulp’s Jarvis Cocker, push him over and then cry about it. Nominees for Britian’s Mercury Prize, the Brit-pop group melds Mercury Rev’s atmosphere with Pulp’s inner doubt for a album to drift off to.
"Here it Comes" is the perfect after-cocktail to Pulp’s "This is Hardcore," with full striptease desire included. "Catch the Sun" is a duelling, distorted-guitar pop anthem that drags this album out of endless depression. If only sulking was always this enjoyable.
