This is Cornwall posted a review of the show at their site, though I suspect the reviewer was there for Mumford & Sons and not so much doves!
Lee asks where did it go wrong for the Doves Eden Session?
ON ENTERING the Eden Project on Friday night and spying CDs of Doves’ headline set would be on sale straight afterwards, I made a note to self to buy one.
On leaving I avoided the stall like the plague.
Where did it all go wrong?
It certainly didn’t help that Mumford & Sons were supporting –arguably the band of now, this gang of waistcoat-wearing public schoolboys have updated the sound of The Pogues and Men They Couldn’t Hang for the Twitter generation.
With their sense of zeitgeist many believed they should have headlined despite the lack of songs. It appeared Doves thought they should have headlined too.
The Mancunian three-piece who stormed the Sessions back in 2002 were sadly lacking.
Always devoid of character, they previously made up for it by powerful gigs of emotional firepower, halfway between Elbow and The Verve.
