On its release in September, ‘The Universal Want’ shot straight to number one, outselling their four nearest rivals combined.
Reviewing the album, NME wrote: “It may have taken over a decade for Doves to pour their souls into ‘The Universal Want’ but if it turns out to be their final transmission, it will be a worthy closing chapter to their epic legacy.”
