Thank you. I do my best. 
I love this song  {#Good-vibes}

Even though the groove/vibe is constantly punctuated... (why?)
What COOL opening chords!

Yes, but a bit snappier.
Brilliant. Probably my favourite Doves track. Certainly their high point of the albums...

Yeah.  Could be the sound track for Eraserhead II.

The Flaming Lips were formed quite a few years before Doves....a couple decades before I would say. The Lips were formed in the mid '80's.

 
Doves were formed in the mid-'90s, but they didn't release an album until 2000.  More than a couple of years, but less than than 'a couple of decades'. 
It's good. But it stops too much
so lovely.

Absolutely!
Humm, I've always found the Doves a bit hit and miss.
This is a hit, very Zero 7, like it.

Something to listen to while driving on the highway at midnight.
There's something haunting and lovely about this tune.
fine...great album btw

Great !

these guys really do a nice job of blending the atmospheric with the dramatic...


I REALLY like this one.  And I'm not much of a Doves fan, either.

Wow. Wow.
Please sir, may I have another?
Loved the Doves DVD we recently rented from Netflix. The disc UI is weird, but the recorded UK concert was terrific.
This is quite good . . . .

Yes, the whole album is terrific. My favourite track on it is "The Man Who Told Everything" (which unfortunately is not on the RP playlist).

Lost Souls was their debut LP. Definitely worth getting. Just like their other two albums actually (and hopefully the new one that will come out in 2009!).

 

Thank you...I will definitely check it out!!
Earth calling. Hellooooooooooooo Helloooooooooooooo. Anybody out there????????????????????
Looking forward to their new album in April...it's long overdue.   {#Yes}

rowr
I could swear this song was a love child between Zero 7 and Air.

Love Love Love this music! The lyric too {#Tongue} You you you...
I love this song. I worked on the sound on an irish film called Disco Pigs and we used this track in one of the really emotive scenes and it was amazing. It's a great unknown film by the way, directed by Kirsten Sheridan and lead by Cillian Murphy (starred in 28 Days Later)
Wow - this thing just kinda came out of nowhere on a big white horse and swept me away to the steppes of Russia, where armies were in collision and battles for the future of civilisation were being waged. Then, just as it looked like the forces of evil were going to prevail, up popped Alice with a giant mushroom.
Wow. Now I have to put the album on . . . :devil_pimp:
Thatizstillsumgudstuff :yes:

buena banda como para tomarse una ducha.
This album is so damn good.
This is simply perfect.
8 -> 9 Outstanding album. Reminds me of Depeche Mode and Wilders solo productions.

Is it just me or is there a background fuzz in this song that makes your speakers sound like they've been blown out? It is really annoying...
It wasn't only you hearing that, I certainly heard it as well.

It's got a groove, but whatever distortion they're using is driving me nuts! Blech!
This is what music should feel like.
This is some good shit. A 9 right outa da box!
Note to self, get a buncha Doves and put it in my iPod.
...liking this - no idea it was doves before i clicked...
MAN the Doves take me from this world :propeller: to a better place
Wow that is some good stuff.
Goddamn, that's a good one.

What is this? A song for SETI?
Never heard of this band til this station. Interesting segue from New Order, an all-time fave. Thanks RP.
Funny, I just got done listening to this CD and decided to turn on RP!!! Great minds think alike. :drummer:
Wow! This sounds a lot like something off of Zero 7's Simple Things. Maybe this is where Zero 7 got some of their inspiration from.
Do I hear cats? Meow?
I'm already a big fan of this CD, but this was the 1st time I heard this tune with the headphones on. Yowza! :music:
And that's just the beginning of the cd!
... :music: ...
OK, now this is just cool. :dancingbanana_2:
Dark, Mysterious and Outstanding!!
The crescendo is probably the most awesome I've ever heard. Spine tingling.
I like it, I like it alot.
That's a GREAT song!!!

I like Doves a lot. I really like Some Cities a lot too. I'm still really glad to hear something from one of their other albums though. Good Doves. I give it an 8.
That was a really cool Doves song...I think I prefer when they don't really sing.... 8.
Careful with that dove, Eugene.
