Un excellent album de Coldplay emmené par un Chris Martin très inspiré. Celui-ci répète d'ailleurs à longueur d'interviews que l'album Last Broadcast était sa plus belle fierté personnelle : "- L'album Last Broadcast est ma plus belle fierté personnelle. - Pouvez-vous répéter, Chris ? Vous avez parlé trop loin du micro. - Bien sûr. L'album Last Broadcast est ma plus belle fierté personnelle. -Merci, Chris." A contrario, on entend souvent que le batteur du groupe a une aversion toute particulière pour cet album qu'il aurait à de multiples reprises qualifié de mauvais : "- Vous entendez ? - Non, qu'y a-t-il ? - Il me semble que le batteur de Coldplay a une aversion toute particulière pour l'album Last Broadcast... - Cesse de dire des bêtises, tu veux ? - Tu as raison..."

A truly great live band, but on record, you need to give these songs time to sink in. As others have said, possibly not as good as their debut, Lost Souls, but it has some excellent singles and the intensity never drops. Brilliant!

I wasn’t sure what to expect but this album was truly great. Elements of Britpop meet influences such as the Beatles, Radiohead etc. to form a lush textured album that is familiar and new at the same time. I find rock albums from this time tend to sound a lot like each other but this album stands out. I loved the instrumentation as well

Its always darkest before the dawn. Behind every dark cloud there’s a silver lining. This little light of mine, I’m a gonna let it shine. Doves. Never heard of ‘em. Wished I had before now. I think I love ‘em. NME called 'The Last Broadcast' ‘the most uplifting miserable album you’ll hear all year.’ I’m not typically a fan of Brit-pop, precisely because of the inordinate time the genre spends celebrating misery. That, and the music often sucks. But Doves have stopped me in my tracks. I found the music bright and joyful, almost effortless. And the lyrics, while a far piece from puppy-producing joy, were definitely more optimistic than the soul crushing bleakness of, for example, Pulp. Even on ‘Sulphur Man,’ who is described as ‘A soul in tatters, as black as coal,’ the lyricist still hopes ‘… you can find what matters.’ The other Brit-pops would advise suicide, right now, before the rest of this day ends up surely sucking even worse than yesterday. But even that doesn’t really matter, they say. Live, die, whatever. Who gives a shit? That’s not Doves, though. Things do matter. Even negative things. Maybe especially negative things. Or maybe more accurately, you matter. Negative things do not have the final word, they are not an end to themselves. On ‘Satellites’ you can actually hear the emergence from bad times into better times. Even the expression, ‘Sweet Lord,’ is sang with what sounds like a choir. There’s a lot of those kind of moments, cool little surprising sounds- tinkling chimes, pounding hammers- sprinkled liberally all over this album like jimmies on a donut, never detracting, but always enhancing the song. In fact, I felt as if I was back in college (late 70s) listening to this LP at the local video arcade, every song on 'The Last Broadcast' accompanied by the whirs and whistles and beeps and such emanating from Pac Man and Asteroids and Donkey Kong. (Have I completely lost the millennial readers?) I watched a recent series of conversations between the producer extraordinaire, Rick Rubin, and a musician named Paul McCartney (whom you might remember from Wings, not to mention a little band he was in before.) They spent the time in front of a mixing board console, Rubin manipulating the various tracks, highlighting the bass parts and asking questions about composition and historical context, etc. Well, he’d have his hands full with 'The Last Broadcast.' I mean, when’s the last time you heard a clarinet on a rock n’ roll record (‘Friday’s Dust’)? Then again, now that I think of it, McCartney used one on ‘When I Get Older,’ a track off of one of those LPs he did with the fellas before Wings (and you might of heard of this one too), 'Sergeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.' But I digress. Dove takes their time with the intros and exits. I like that. Lots of echo in the vocals, giving the overall mix a dreamy sound, reminiscent of Syd Barrett’s Pink Floyd (‘The Nile Song,’ i.e.) I like that too. There wasn’t one bad, even mediocre, song in the bunch, including the two droning instrumentals serving as intros for the next songs. Oh, and check out their adaptation of King Crimson’s ‘Moonchild’ on the fourth track, ‘M62 Song.’ It took me until the very end before I finally consciously realized what my subconscious knew from the beginning. The fact that they even know who King Crimson are rates them a bonus star, don’t you think? There’s an oldies radio station here in Denver that advertises, ‘Remember when music was good?’ I don’t ever want to turn into one of those guys, yelling at the kids to get off my lawn, and grousing about how today’s music ain’t got the same soul, so start playing old time rock n’ roll. 'The Last Broadcast' is proof enough that good rock did not end with the turning of the century. Now if I can just figure out the significance of the album cover?

I listened to their first album before this one and it blew me away, 10/10 post rock I think the first song I noticed that I found really phenomenal was Sea Song, the three songs before that were amazing but it was that fourth song that really made me love the album, and everything after that was incredible too but then I listened to the second album, and I think I liked it even more, it had so many cool songs, that is easily worth a 10/10 for me but then I noticed they did something really special, THEY DID A COVER OF A FUCKING KING CRIMSON SONG Moonchild is one of my favorite songs in general, the fact they made a bluesy, post-rock cover of one of my favorite prog rock songs is so fucking cool idk I’ve always had a soft spot for any media that uses King Crimson, especially in movies like Mandy, Children of Men, and Buffalo ‘66 (although there are MANY other reasons I love that last one) anyways this a really incredible album for me, if you like post-rock this is definitely worth a listen

I had not heard of this band or album, and I don't recognize any of the songs, but it's really solid. I like their style. It's a nice blend of rock and pop, but has its own sound -- maybe "indie rock"? -- and I like how that edgy sound is balanced with vocals and vocal harmonies, plus catchy rhythms, that all make for a rather infectious mix. Very glad I've been introduced to them.

Oddly I was only familiar with the Doves' first album Lost Souls which I love. This one on first pass didn't do as much for me. But. Almost immediately upon second play i am hearing the differences...in a good way. The strong sense of melody I was waiting for is everywhere but I think more varied this time around. I almost wish I had multiple days per album to properly digest some of them, this is a good example. I'm thinking I'm going to like this more and more as I get to know it. If you like melodic dreamy melodies, this is for you. 7/10 4 stars.

I enjoyed this. The vocals were great and the production was full of some nice little nuggets to sink my teeth into. Some of it fits in very well with a lot of the garage bands in the early 2000’s but I think the vocals make up for it and i enjoyed it more than The Strokes right away. Really liked the acoustic guitar work on “Caught By The River” - almost reminded me of Filter’s Take a Picture a little bit. Fave tracks: “Words” “Caught By The River” “N.Y.”

I was really surprised by this one. It reminded me a bit like Radiohead, probably around the Kid A / Amnesiac period. Very space rock-y. Although the vocals felt a bit generic (stronger, more forceful than Yorke's). I liked how the album opened, the intro really made a great statement. Their interpretation of "Moonchild" was... interesting. Not sure if I would keep coming back to that song, but at least they credited King Crimson.

This one is gonna be quick because I feel like shit, but I loved this artist. I always loved the strange vibes from radiohead that i haven't heard anywhere else. I couldn't listen to them too much though because it was filled with so much anxiety and depressive sounds that it brought me down. The doves have that vibe I wanted though, and it had all of the bad vibes taken out. A wonderful, modern, almost whimsical or fairytale like album 8.5/10 The only descriptor in my head is "modern fairytale"

Liebe diesen droney Indie Disco Stomper. Wohl eine zu der Zeit in der Breite zu unrecht etwas unpopuläre Band, die einen perfekten Nachfolger zu „Lost Souls“ liefert. Irgendwo zwischen Charlatans, Stone Roses, The Verve und doch nicht nur ein ‚für Freunde von‘-Act. In jenem Jahr war ich schon selig, denn der Erstling von Interpol und die EP‘s von British Sea Power rundeten eine tolle Post-Britpop Zeit ab. Alleine „Here comes the fear“ auf der Autobahn voll aufdrehen ist als einer der lebendigsten Momente in Erinnerung geblieben, als ich vor wenigen Jahren das Album wieder hervor geholt habe. Biased 4.0

Obligatory "Hey, this sounds like Radiohead/Coldplay/Muse". Pretty good. Highlights for me include "N.Y.", "Caught by the River" and the kind of strange King Crimson cover(?) "M62 Song". More chill than I expected from the ominous album cover and title, both of which are awesome by the way. However, my favorite parts were when they slightly dipped their toes into a more grungy sound.

After listening to the first track, I really wanted to like this. And, listening further, I did, just not as much as I would have liked. After staring at the band name for a couple minutes, I seemed to remember a release by them from last year. I was sure I hadn't listened to it, that there was some kind of news coverage that I had bookmarked to read as I got to it. It turns out that that was not the case: I listened to the 2020 album in 2020, and I guess it was pleasant but not particularly memorable. This sophomore effort seems better for now, though in a year I suppose I'll be better-equipped to compare it. It's chock-full of good songs and a few hints at something more. One listen in, I think the mix lets down the music a bit. My rating is a tad harsh based on my disappointment.

This album sounds like just about everything that XFM was playing in 2002 (You're an idiot, play a record!). Peppy Brit Pop. This also sounds a lot like early Coldplay. You could probably toss a coin in 100 realities and find that in 50 of them Coldplay became the huge megaband and in 50 of them Doves became the megaband. Kind of generic. A solid 3 across the album.

10th June 2021 Listened first thing in the morning on my phone getting ready for my second round interview with the FT. Doves are a strange one because I was aware of them when I should have been their prime audience but never really got into them. Caught By The River was a big song and appeared on a bunch of compilations, and they were on the OC soundtrack which was huge. One to spend more time with. 3.5 if I could.

Some great songs, particularly in the first half, alongside a lot of bland, Coldplay-ish padding. A shame really, there was some real promise here. That this is apparently among the best UK rock albums of the early 2000s just reinforces my opinion that this wasn't a great period for it.

Half way through the intro I was thinkin’ (hopin?) this was some Trance DJ I had overlooked. I was not taken by There Goes the Fear/Pounding as the album’s big hits. M62 caught my attention – I read it was an adaptation of Moonchild from King Crimson’s first album. I re-listened to the original and I was impressed by how similar the feel and vocal effects were, but the melody was different, and of course there isn’t 9 minutes of piano plucking in this one. I like the way the songs change mood, especially when they get quite and sparse – it sounds less like a typical indie band.

This British indie rock album is the second one from the band - Doves. It was immediately popular at release, and for good reason because this beautiful, melancholy album was a treat to listen to. The music at one moment will be sad or miserable and in the next moment, you will be uplifted with a change in pace, instruments' pitch, and/or vocal tone.

A college headphone staple for AER. What's the most beautiful moment of OK Computer? Doves (and I) think its the final chorus of Let Down. This is an entire album of final choruses of Let Down. Is it overproduced, sure maybe depends. Triumphant arrangements, generalized lyrics that point to victory, but with a voice that sounds like they lost the war. It's all a bit much, but can still feel it on a general level. B+

I gave this one two listens because I thought maybe it just didn't hit me the first time I heard it. Nope, just not for me. I enjoyed the King Crimson cover and N.Y. and Pounding but the rest of it sounds a bit monotonous and I can't get into the guys vocals. The mastering is also very loud but I know that's more a consequence of when it was released so I try not to hold it against the album. 2.5 rounded up to 3.

What did I say about Grizzly Bear a few weeks back? Same applies here. It's fine. Vocals are nice, some good instrumentation in there. You can hear the progression from 90's shoegaze to this new, up-in-the-clouds rock/pop. There's enough guitar work and experimentation with that sound to be intriguing. I don't mind indie rock and this is an easy listen; you can easily get lost in it and wonder where the time went. But then nothing really seems to stick out. Enjoyable. Not sure how much more than that.

This has a real early 2000s coldplay/wilco vibe to it. I don't entirely mean that as a diss, but it's not exactly a glowing compliment either. These bands of that era LOVE them some reverb.

The sound of a fledgling Brit-rock band shooting for something between stadium fillers and charity appeal videos, chasing a giant sound and often hitting, sometimes missing. It's by no means a bad thing, but all the Coldplay comparisons do seem apt here, along with any number of 2000s British bands (Elbow? Athlete? Keane?). Doves in part embrace and in part dodge the maudlin trappings of the era, yielding mixed results. The lyrics are made everyday and generic enough to appeal to everyone who hears them: "words can never hurt me"; "seize the time 'cause it's now or never, baby"; "satellites ahead, so hold on." Many of these are pitched as colossal, earthshaking epiphanies, bombastic and huge. It's a fine line between empowering and cloying, and at times they just don't hit. "Words" made me cringe as an opener, and I don't think "Caught by the Fear" deserves all the exposure it's had: it's simply too long and doesn't have enough to say (except a really intriguing percussive outro). This leads me to the many positives on offer: Doves play around with style, form and dynamics to stop the treacle getting too thick. Some of the more subtle songs help to shake up the bombast: M62 is a very unexpected interpolation of King Crimson's "Moonchild" that's a fun diversion, and the title track has a beguiling mixture of simple, hypnotic arpeggios and electronic synth textures, with undertones of Radiohead. The extra orchestration is also welcome to prevent sliding into monotony: a hint of glockenspiel on "Words", a gospel choir in "Satellites", a full orchestra in "The Sulphur Man." They're all nice touches to add some texture to the song rather than just cavernous onslaughts of guitar, drums and vocals. And - let it be said - when I really put myself in the mood, ignored my prejudice and allowed the songs to carry me away like a balloon, I could feel them working their magic. I wanted to hate "Satellites" and "Pounding", but in all their simplicity I couldn't help feeling like I was transcending. Even more so in "Caught by the River", the best track of all. It works so well because it builds from a simple acoustic guitar strum-along, earning its cathartic release rather than expecting the listener to jump straight on board bursting into tears. It's a bit uneven- the tracks like "NY" and "Friday's Dust" lost me a bit among the rest of the material- but has so far rewarded me on repeated listens. Going with a 3* for now, but in time it may keep growing to fill the capacity its songs have aimed for.

Last Broadcast brilliantly balances a static chant with a hypnotic rhythm, country-ish guitar-picking and floating female vocals. However, these tracks have a bit too much melodrama, and sometimes they "only" have melodrama. (6/10) FT: There Goes The Fear

Musically, this album is good, but it just didn't make much of an impression on me.

1001 Albums Generator Day 12 In 2002, Doves didn’t exist yet. It was the year I turned 13 and I got music from daytime Radio 1, compilations and mixtapes my brother and I made for the frequent drives back to Cornwall to visit my grandma. We’d moved to Dorset a couple of years before, but none of us had wanted to go and my mum would drive us back at every opportunity. The compilations were increasingly dance ones rather than chart ones; Ministry of Sound and the like. The tapes were getting heavy on rap. To hear the songs we liked we'd started listening to Westwood; another man who called himself Big Dog and ought to have been taken to live on a nice farm in the country. My favourite new albums of the year were probably Lord Willin’ by Clipse and God’s Son by Nas. Eminem had released his first disappointing album, but we weren’t ready to admit it to ourselves yet. Jay-Z’s Blueprint 2 was also patchy, but as a double CD we’d had to split the cost to afford it and we were going to make the most of it. There was a lot of good pop on the radio, including Sugababes and Liberty X, and lots of great R&B, but I was getting a sense that there was some music I wasn’t supposed to like. When I started a new school in September, a girl asked me my favourite album and to fit in I said the first Linkin Park, which I’d been really into about a year before. It was a good call; hers was Sum 41’s All Killer No Filler. Occasionally I’d hear Last Nite by The Strokes and thought it was pretty good. I liked the bit about aliens and not being understood. Other than that, there was no rock revival. Seven Nation Army wouldn’t be out for another year, so the White Stripes didn’t exist either. Rock on the radio meant Oasis’ Little by Little or The Scientist by Coldplay, and I wasn’t interested. If I’d heard Doves at the time, I’d have thought they were another Coldplay without tunes. In fact, when I heard them on the BBC coverage of Reading in 2005, that’s exactly what I thought. Post X&Y, and the horror of Fix You, that was much more offensive to me than it had been circa Clocks. And at least one of them had a beard. That was enough to stop me getting into The Magic Numbers, and they actually had some songs I liked. There are a lot of rules when you’re a teenager. Other than that, they passed me by, except for the Kingdom of Rust press campaign, which annoyed me because it seemed specifically aimed at helping them “do an Elbow.” With hindsight, not everything has to speak to me about my life, and obviously that’s just good marketing sense. If I had heard Doves in 2002, I would have connected the Pounding beat with Coldplay’s Politik; but I wouldn’t have considered the ecstasy reference of their name or that both bands grew up in a post-rave culture dominated by four-on-the-floor Eurodance. Now, listening to Words, I hear the post-baggy chiming guitars and harmonies of Ride, delivered with a clarity and confidence that comes from experience. The descending right hand organ figure at the start of The Sulphur Man sounds like a disco violin part. I’m moved by the sorrowful, electronic gospel of Satellites. Hearing that and the almost William Orbit shimmer of the title track I’m pleased to hear a rock band keeping their ears open to recent pop, though a couple of years after Never Ever and Pure Shores I wonder if it already sounded a little dated. With their epic vagueness and Jimi Goodwin’s doleful voice, they do fit into that post-Radiohead, post U2 lighters-aloft movement, but perhaps not as neatly as I had presumed. Even so, I haven’t changed that much. My initial idea for this series was going to be a simple taste test: I would listen to each album and mark it according to whether it was better, worse or as good as Glorious: The Singles 97-07 by Natalie Imbruglia. Bad news, Doves.

There are high degrees of interest and variety throughout (e.g., chiming “Words, the highly distorted “N.Y,” dreamy and thoughtful “Sulphur Man”). Overall, it feels an update – and building on strengths of – classic Mancunian sounds. The sound (vocals in particular) start to wander, concerningly into Coldplay territory late on, without fully blossoming into full self-importance and pomposity. Straight-up likable and engaging and worthy of further listening.

Remind me of a lesser Stone Roses, not in a bad way just same kind of sound but updated for early 00s. Jimi Goodwins voice is less gravely than it is now, he sounds very young. I remember liking this bad and this album back in '02. Has aged somewhat well. Standout songs: 2. Words 9. Pounding 10. Last Broadcast Songs that hasn't aged well: 3. There goes the fear 11.

Solid Brit pop. Evolution of Oasis, Proto Coldplay with a sprinkle of Sun Kill Moon. Some of the songs had a big sound and good breakdowns. Many times I’d be into it and they’d take it the wrong direction, a boring direction. As a whole it felt a bit saccharine and got a bit repetitive.

Not heard this before and to be honest I find it a little dull and repetitive. Reminds me a bit of Keane and that general "Millennial Malaise" type of Indy Rock. It is OK but not a favourite of this listener. Best Track for me is probably the Robert Fripp co-written "M62 Song" which at least has some nice lyrical guitar work. "Last Broadcast" is also a good tune but too reminiscent of Guy Garvey and Elbow for my liking. A little maudlin for me.
