ALBUM REVIEW: Doves “The Places Between: Best of Doves”

Label: Virgin/Heavenly
Release Date: 05.04.2010

With a twelve year career-long habit of having their albums topping end of year polls, two Mercury nominations and worldwide sales of two million, Doves have now released their first ‘Best Of’ compilation and you are simply spoilt for choice for music, which not only moves your head, your heart and your feet, but also your very soul.
From the epic majesty of ‘The Cedar Room’ through to the exhilarating pulse of ‘Pounding’ and the glorious Motown stomp of ‘Black And White Town’, Doves seem to be one of those special bands who keep their heads down and simply get on with making the most emotive music they can, completely oblivious to the rest of the world.
The 35 tracks on this 2CD set are an excellent introduction, incorporating the singles, some rarities, videos and three new songs including the soaring, expansive grace of new single ‘Andalucia’.
If you are not that familiar with Doves, then ‘The Places Between’ is an excellent start, giving you just a flavour of what their ambitious, life-affirming songs can offer. And if you invest the time and emotion, you will soon sense that whatever you are feeling, listening to Doves just makes everything better.
Rating: 5/5
