Doves — Jetstream
Album: Kingdom of Rust
Avg rating:
6.9

Your rating:
Total ratings: 1157









Released: 2009
Length: 5:28
Plays (last 30 days): 1
Tall machines wait in line
So still lost in time
Jets turn and make no sound
Returning to the solid ground
People drift out of time
Watching numbers turn
Seems that I've been waiting here forever

Jetstream
Stormy seas
Cast adrift on a troubled dream
I've seen the sleeping ships at night
I will meet you there
The roar of the engine in the air (Jetstream)

Leave the things you don't need
And the ones that you don't love
Faith and hope
Keeps our minds together
Your heart's left the ground tonight
Scattered lost in light
Seems that I've been waiting here forever

Jetstream
Carbon seas
Cast adrift on a troubled dream
I've seen the silent jets at night
I will meet you there
The roar of the engine high in the air (Jetstream)

Sleeping ships in the night
Shining steel lost in time
Jets turn, make no sound
Returning to the safer ground
People running outta time
Lost in love, last in line
Seems I've waited here forever

Jetstream
Stormy seas
Cast adrift on a troubled dream
I see the silent jets at night
I will take you there
The roar of the engine pollutes the air

Jetstream

As an album, this is superb start to finish. Good for a long drive.

shameless *bump*

This piece, and many others from Doves, is about fifty or seventy light years ahead of Sphongle. or Cab Caloway, or dub stumble stupor, in my very non-humble opinion.  But that's only one person's opinion, eh?

Actually the Sash Remix bests the original version.
Ahh, but their cost of living is 56% higher than the US, hence only 37% higher than YVR, on a salmon run standard.

Iceland?  Yes.  On a population weighted basis, it may get more turns on RP than any other country.   Excuse me if I lumped Iceland in with Scandinavia.  

Iceland punches well above its weight in several categories.

1)  Ability to quickly recover from a domestic financial crisis.  (Seriously, the rest of us are not worthy!)

2) Film

3) Film settings

4) Fine, high quality, intensively managed sea-run brown trout and Atlantic salmon fly fishing in an absolutely stupendous natural setting. 

5)  Big icecap close at hand.....  for those who like skiing across the icecap.

On a proportional basis in terms of rotation on radio paradise, I reckon that Canada punches well above its demographic weight and that is with little or no québécois pop music (which is excellent IMO).  Quebec comprises a little over 20% of the Canadian population.

On a proportional basis, Scandinavia punches even higher than Canada.

Naturally, it is hard not to play British acts.  Instead of painting half the world red, the British now offer some of the best quality contemporary music to be found anywhere. 

In that respect I reckon that US radio paradise listeners are very lucky to get this kind of cosmopolitan exposure.  Then radio paradise plays more than a few obscure American acts that would get little or no airplay elsewhere.  

My wish list:  more Israeli music, more Arab music, more of the lesser known Argentinian and Brazilian music.   Artists and musicians are the messengers of social change.  They should be 'engaged' everywhere all the time.

For some reason I'm REALLY digging this!    Like okdokie    {#Bananajam}{#Cheers}{#Dancingbanana_2}
I like the other stuff I have heard off this album but this one not so much.  All the electronic noises here seem very obvious and distracting rather than enhancing.

Funny - I always like the Doves, never love them, but think I "should." Just something missing that I can't point my finger on...?  {#Stupid}
Blah ... a 3 for me.
Okay ... I was about to press enter and then the groove started (minus vocals) and sounded pretty cool.
But it's back to form again, and sounds (to me) like a poor man's Coldplay.
It remains a 3 in my book.

Great song. Doves also digitally-released an instrumental version of the album, Instrumentals of Rust, on which this track is even more powerful IMO.

Rdo, et.al.:

Hmmmm....not sure about that, though at a base level I'd argue a country with great food makes not so great music.  France?   Great food.  Name me the last anyone's music from their region.  UK?  Food...bleech....music?  Great.  Germany?  Scandinavia?  Somewhere in between on both. 

I jest...but it does seem to be somewhat pertinent although I'll admit the logical fallacy of the arguement.  BUT....this is a Western ego-centric "thang," ain't it?   The East has produced some stunning music.  India, China, Japan.  But it certainly isn't modeled on Western ideals what with their particular tonalities and such.  So for me it comes to this.  Music, like all art, an be considered in the eye of the beholder.  But it's made by human beings.  As such, and as a non-musician, it's interesting to me.  It's one of the reasons I like RP so much.  Pablum ain't their musical style, and I appreciate hearing stuff I would never, ever, hear otherwise sprinkled thru that I do (more) easily recognize.  .  To RP I say...keep up the good work.  It certainly beats machine programmed pap.

Just sayin'...

Thanks for reviving the video link from the Grade 7 kids! I was thrilled to learn recently from one of the moms of these students (brushed by each other in the mall) that Jack is readying for high school graduation by taking multiple multimedia courses and doing filmmaking on the side. Plant in a seed in a youngster's brain, and there's no telling where he/she might take it. Jack spearheaded the Doves project, and just ran with it. I was blown away.

I personally think it's a 7 because it really sounds like their other stuff, not to mention a ton of other stuff. Although they did basically invent this sound, they really haven't innovated it much. When I first heard them circa 2001 I thought they were going to be the next thing, but I really think they turned out to be another cold play: one innovation and done.

 
When did Coldplay innovate something?

First time I heard them, I thought Thom Yorke had offed himself and Radiohead got themselves another singer!

And this is my first Doves experience... solid 7!
This just made me want to take a couple of aspirin, lay down and listen to silence for a long while.

Wow, I think this makes so much sense.  Maybe that explains the modern music that Germany is known for (it ain't their pop rock).

I would suggest in this case the tyranny of language and not culture (as long as we stay in the west) can be blamed.
Classical music is largely instrumental, Italian opera dominated at the time 'cause they invented it. Similarly English rock/pop dominates because it was invented in the English speaking world and non English acts sing in English if they want to be heard outside of their country.

Sir Bill often play non English acts, which could be why we're all here.. I guess.

AT first he sounds a bit like Roland Orzabal.

Just some thoughts. 

Great tune by the way.

Also the singer is somewhat reminiscent of Lennon - maybe the Beatles, had they stayed together in the '80's and John had lived.

Hey, they don't call us Stabmonton for nothing, you know.  Major problem with knives here in the last five years or so.

But yeah...as an ex-Vancouverite, the gang problem there is mounting heavily.  Good luck my friend, keep ur head down.

I suspect that when the CD gets released and Bill can add a few more tracks, you'll hear less of this one and more of the newer stuff

Had this stuck in my head all weekend, which means it's either 'really good' or 'really bad but has a clever hook'.   At the moment I'm tending to the 'really good' , but things could change after a few more thousand listens.

And now Bill tells us the album isn't even out until April, so I guess we haven't even hit the heavy rotation yet.

Jimi Goodwin usually does lead vocals but occasionally one of the other 2 chip in, in this case, Jez Williams does, who also takes lead vocals on 'Words'.

The more I hear it, the more I like it, especially when I can turn up the volume and let it blast from the speakers.
Had this one on repeat for three days running!

Hearing this for the 3rd time now, and i had to come back to the computer to see who it was.
I guess its got a good hook for me.
If the rest of the album is like this i'll probably be seeking this one out.
Thanks again RP.
A good segue from this song should be the My Morning Jackets song...come on Bill, you are supposed to know these before I think of them.

Yeah, if the rest is as good as this, I'll definitely be picking up this album.
 
I didn't realize it hadn't been released yet!!! ;-)  I will be picking it up because the Doves are always consistent.
I've got to be honest, I'm a little disappointed. Maybe it will grow on me.

Interesting. Definitely fits in a set after Imogen.

Thanks KevinM!

An initial 7 'cause I have a favourable confirmatory bias for the Doves.  A little different from earlier material though.

Richly produced.
