Doves: Sky Starts Falling

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?
