Review Round-Up #2

Here’s several more reviews of the album, which you may have missed over the last few days…

Kansas, Album Review:


Doves | ‘Kingdom of Rust’: Rust is the first release in four years from the British trio of brothers Andy and Jez Williams and Jimi Goodwin. The trio continued its work with producer Dan Austin. Sounds like: Coldplay, with more unexpected turns and bigger risks.

The Times (via, Album Review:

Doves: Kingdom of Rust. If there’s any such thing as an Elbow bounce, Guy Garvey’s fellow Mancunians have timed their fourth album smartly.
