Title - 'Best of (2CD/DVD) [Limited Edition]'
Artist - Doves
Did you know, 'cause I sure didn't, that before embracing Brit-pop in the late '90s, Doves' three members -- vocalist/bassist Jimi Goodwin, guitarist Jez Williams, and drummer Andy Williams -- figured prominently in the Madchester scene, where they scored a Top Five single as part of the dance combo Sub Sub. "Ain't No Love (Ain't No Use)" peaked at number three in the U.K., but Sub Sub failed to produce any significant follow-up hits!
The Doves then made their stunning debut with "Lost Souls," a brooding, symphonic rock album that is impossible to forget. The group delivers the basics -- simple melodies are layered with richly psychedelic sound, anguished songs about how it's "a crime to feel." If it is, then the Doves are accessories to the crime.
Anyway, 'The Places Between' is the first greatest hits album from Manchester outfit Doves. Collecting tracks from their four studio albums - 'Lost Souls', 'The Last Broadcast', 'Some Cities' and 'Kingdom Of Rust' - the album serves as the perfectintroduction to the band's distinctive anthemic indie rock.The album is preceded by the previously unreleased single 'Andalucia'.
I highly recommend this English band. A great value -- monetarily and music wise, on two great discs.
