Doves: Sky Starts Falling
It'll make you smile
The alarm bells start ringing as soon as you clock that title, which sounds like the kind of thing that would be generated by a computer programmed with Fundaments Of 21st Century Big Rock 2.0. And indeed, we get quiet bits, loud chorus bits, a slight change of tack in the middle eight and a switch back to the original recipe. Doves have given us some soaring pop songs but this is just bells-and-whistles, smoke-and-mirrors stadium-pleasing ho-hummery. What’s in a title, eh kids?
