THE DOVES The Last Broadcast

It's a more musically diverse album than their last one, but it also has Doves further defining their own original sound. You know a new band knows what it's doing when, two albums in, they already have their own clearly defined sound. As for the best song on The Last Broadcast, you needn't go any further than There Goes the Fear. A seven-minute outburst of pure joy, it incorporates the sunny, Big Rock sound their earlier hit Catch the Sun only hinted at, with the influence of fellow Mancunians New Order. The Doves attempt to reach the triumphant heights that U2 has been desperately trying to recreate, and failing miserably at, for the past decade. And generally over repeated listens they could be worthy successors.
