Doves release their fifth long player The Universal Want on Virgin EMI. On lead trackPrisoners Doves forces attention upon itself, not least with the poignancy of Goodwins repeated greeting to old friends, but as an unstoppable, driving tale of caution in a world of unending desire. Produced by Doves with Dan Austin and recorded at the bands own Frank Bough Sound III studios in North West England, the high heat of its Northern Soul beat is fanned by wiry guitar breaks and cuts of ethereal noise contorting beneath layers of stacked vocals. A statuesque musical statement, Prisoners guides Doves second chapter to a peak now within touching distance, the lyrics contrasting to express unease with modern ills.
