Doves' debut, Lost Souls, is a lovely piece of dreamy britpop providing a lush and colorful atmosphere and soundscape with some impressive songs such as Rise and The Cedar Room and with these spread out throughout the record means the almost hour long album never runs out of steam.

The story of this debut is about how some ravers became indie-rockers without selling their souls to the devil.
Instead, they trusted their instinct, worked hard and delivered some beautiful samples of melodic sadness, addressed to all the lost souls.

A dreamy sound stuck halfway between Coldplay and pedal-peddling shoegaze, with a strong second half that makes up for a mostly forgettable collection of opening tracks. Yes, there's a lot of filler on here, but the high points are very impressive and scratch the early 2000s alt-rock itch with aplomb.
