Bad snow freeze my throat
And numbs my soul
Eats me whole to pick me up
That's where you know
Free to go
You call the Jones
Makes me old before I'm old
It's all you love
Deep inside I know you love
The less the I seem to know you love

Bad snow numbs my throat
And leaves me dry leaves me dry
Leaves me barely whole
Down to the wire
Rock gone cold
You caught a cold
Like so many times before its all you love
Deep inside I go you love
The less the I seem to know you love

Here now, deep inside I go
Here now

They have been very consistent and if you like one of their albums, you're likely to like the others too.

I would rank them as follows:

Lost SoulsThe Last BroadcastKingdom of Rust
Some Cities

 
Merci le_colonel!

Just caught up to your post.  Will have to do some listening.

Jimi Goodwin (singer of Doves) just released his first solo album, I may have to pick that up to help me get by until the next Doves album.

 
Hei R!

So?  How as Goodwin's solo album?  Impressions?

Weird that this track does not appear on the track listing of the copy of this album that I possess. I obviously can't listen to it again from RP so next time it plays I will have to see if maybe it is a track on the copy I have which has a different name.

 
If you click the Amazon link this appears to be a bonus track on the US release of this album.

Yes. Had to look to see who was singing bc I thought it could possibly be a Radiohead song I didn't know!

Love the Doves since they arrived on the scene.   {#Music}

This song definitely owes a debt to Radiohead.
Would have loved to have heard what Ian “Lemmy” Kilmister would have done with this piece. Alas.

Sounds like tamed early Deftones to me. Excellent anyway.

Raised it from a 7 to a 9 on this listen. Now, I don't know why I had it at a 7, ever! Maybe because I'm cold and in a darkened room. It resonates more. Or - it's just a way cool song! {#Music}
excellent! their best album so far, imho
Love it! >9

I like the"Something's in the Air" guitar thing at the end of this song.

I like this but I'm sure why yet....
Interesting, I guess the drummer got paid per number of snare hits on this song. 
A first hearing on RP from a pretty remarkable CD. I get everything I can by Doves and will continue until there is nothing left.  This song is from their first album, which certainly demonstrates that they knew exactly what they were doing from the start. There is certainly a dark quality to both lyrics and music. I await their next work, if and when this ever happens.

Wait, what? I thought this was Radiohead.....{#Drunk}
Fresh Blood might be a good follow up. Or intro? I dig this song.
this dove song...darker - is a dark dove song.  holy smokes...
For me, just now, writing about quantum mechanics and the electromagnetic nature of qi, this song is Spooky Action at a Distance, man...
Ah, Doves!
Waiting, waiting and waiting with patience for new album......
Great fan of these guys

Might I suggest 'Lost Sides', which is a collection of outtakes and B-Sides by this fabulous band!! {#Yes}

Great album! Dark and mellow.
I'm nuts about this song!
Almost a sophisticated version of dubstep.

Great funk beat on this one and the bass line is cool too. Sounds great on a system that can reproduce good bass tones. 10/10!  {#Drummer}
This CD is an absolute MUST OWN for most folks listening to RP.  {#Yes}
Love it, love it, love it...thanks for the introduction Bill & RP.
 
Great stuff

8 -> 9

Best currently active band by a long way.


It says this was last played on September 29, though it was clearly last played last night, on October 30. A bug?

Very nice!
Fine tune!
Awesome Bill.  Little harder (in places) than a lot of RP fare.  Welcome to my ears.  I'm liking the bassline.

What a cool groove.  One of the better Doves tunes.
Good to hear after Radiohead's I Might Be Wrong. I believe Nigel Goodrich produced both albums, around the same time period. Such good work!

Edit: No, wasn't him on this disk.. I still lump Radiohead, Travis, and the Doves from this period under the same style though.

Like it! It's cool.

Its so brrrrrrrrrooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooding.
Ya know what I hear? Sort of? Fleetwood Mac's "I'm So Afraid". "I slip and I fall and I die..."
I really, really like the drumming. The whole song is very moody. Interesting.
I dig this song, but please don't chop "I Might Be Wrong", it's just wrong.
Speaking of this song and Radiohead, the guitar lick at the end of the Doves track sounds suspiciously like it was taken right off "Nice Dream". I expect that was an intentional nod?
If they ever make a second X-files movie, this would make a good song for the soundtrack.
Appropriate foreboding song for the last day before 6/6/6.
This cut may sound a bit Coldplay-ish but Doves have depth and it shows through...

This kicks Coldplay's collective butts. That bass is pretty cool.
Hey, it gets "lighter" for a minute near the end...
I think I found new band I like :)

I assume so. I noticed the smiliarity right away, too. Oddly enough, I usually don't mind the Doves, but this sounded pretty dull, whereas I usually hate Radiohead, but I Might Be Wrong is probably my favorite song of theirs. Go figger.
Liked the Radiohead, but I have yet to hear a Doves song I like. I guess I must be missing something, but to me they seem seriously overrated.
Spine tinglingly foreboding. Doves do it again.
Coldplay Again????NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!
"New Cities" :lol: I'd rank the albums like this: 1. Lost Souls 2. Some Cities 3. The Last Broadcast I really don't see anything wrong with their latest release.

I do not recommend New Cities, honestly. That album struck me as their weakest one to date. Lost Souls or The Last Broadcast are very good. Lost Sides is very nice, too.

Same here!

Is this placed intentionally after RH I Might Be Wrong? Some def. similarities in the rythm section and mood. Both cool tunes, IMHO.

Hmmm.... second tune I've heard from this disc this week. Starting to really like it. It's good to hear more than one track from a given disc before making a buying decision (I've been burned numerous times from buying a CD on the strength of ONE tune on RP only to find the rest of it relative rubbish. ANYhoo, this sounds pretty darn good.
ohhh the Doves. Most excellent.....
I derive great pleasure from all the layers of rich, unique sounds in this song.
What an awesome song. Why do they not show this song on the track listing in AMG?

Don't hear anything boring here, nice structure, beautifully produced and emotional...

Someone said: A mix between Radiohead and U2. Definitely!
Maybe I give out too many tens :rolleyes: , but this song's bass just kicks @$$! :p
:lol: great guitar rifs!!!!!

Much better than that Cedar Room crap.

...Sounds like a mix of a lot of things, but nothing distinctive, unique or original and that\'s the problem
how about playing the cedar room, or sea song?? more from this cd, anyway.

One of the \"extra tracks\" -- I\'m looking for this CD for the song (as well as a few others) -- thanks for putting this on the playlist? (and why does coldplay get the top marketing nod? I can\'t stand yellow...)
