Play.com Review

After a four-year break, Doves make a confident return with their diverse fourth album, Kingdom Of Rust. Continuing the rich vein of intelligent song writing which found critical acclaim for their previous work, this latest offering meets all expectations. Whilst they aren't a band to write purely with commercial appeal in mind, the release of Kingdom Of Rust finds Doves creating a collection of material littered with robust pop sensibilities.

Opening with the electronic, Kraftwerk-inspired 'Jetstream', before quickly changing tempo for the spaghetti western drama of the title track, it is instantly clear that musical boundaries are being pushed. Produced by Radiohead/Stone Roses producer John Leckie, 'Winter Hill' is a rousing anthem that is likely to echo across summer festivals, whilst the highly rhythmic 'Greatest Denier' is a faithful nod back to the trio's previous incarnation as 90s dance act Sub Sub. Renowned Chemical Brothers programmer Tom Rowlands lends his recognisable arranging skills to '10.03' a stunning, intimate four minutes, which sits comfortably amongst the more high-octane tracks the album has to offer. 'Compulsion' is a leftfield disco experiment, but it's the melodic vibrancy of 'The Outsiders' that returns Doves to familiar territory.

Recorded in a farm house-come-studio in Cheshire over an intensive period of 18 months, the ever-growing confidence of a band progressing is evident with 11 of their most adventurous recordings to date. Influenced by everybody from Chuck Berry to Joy Division, yet retaining their instantly distinctive, intense style of playing, Kingdom Of Rust secures Doves' place as one of the UK's most inventive rock bands.

 Not Quite A Masterpiece

I am a big Doves fan, I particularly love the 1st two albums. This may be a slow burner but I don't agree that the band have reinvented the wheel as has been claimed. They are some very strong songs, particularly, Jetstream, Winter Hill and Spellbound, but a few dodgy ones too, Compulsion. I think The Last Broadcast is their most consistent album to date.

 I must buy this album at the end of the month!

They remind me much of the band called Elbow. I love these guys and this album makes me love them even more - must buy soon! The songs from what I've heard on this album are very powerful, and will definitely bring a smile to your face. I don't see many albums with such charm as this one (well, from the tracks I've heard they've been on the ball so far!) , so it's worth checking out!

 very good but........

I love this album, right from the first play it sounds fantastic. And that might be the problem, immediate can quickly become boring then irritating. Must not over play this album, must not over play this album, must not over play this album

Dove the best band in the whole world consistently producing and delivering the most melodic and vibrant tunes. I hope they play Glastonbury 2009 as it will make the festival. Brilliant album well worth the long wait.

 listen over and over!!

Ive always been a fan of Doves but haven't bought any albums until now. I loved the titled track and had a listen to the other tracks. Jetstream is another good track. Well worth the money! can listen to it over and over. nice one!
