Probably because they're both boring, shit bands.
well I like Grounds For Divorce.
ARE YOU KiK IN DIS-GUISE?*
*To be chanted to 'you're not singing any more' style tune.
"I like Doves and Elbow because they are both boring, shit bands."
*scampers away giggling like a girl*
your like a watered down Kissinginkansas
No, you genuinely are the most retarded person I can think of.
This is why, when I was in Borders yesterday and Elbow came on the in-store radio, I thought "Oh God, Elbow... OR IS IT DOVES?!?!1"
not sure i want to think about guy garvey being all my face constantly.
two bands making music for a boring, rainy tuesday in manchester. the antithesis of everything good and exciting about pop music.
or white lies or something I dunno I get them all mixed up...
Let's leave The National out of this!
are fucking great.
Neither are boring. Stop getting Bond wrong!
This in particular sounds nothing like Elbow
Doves are brilliant, Elbow are alright.
but hey, we're all different
Doves and Elbow sound the same. It's hardly something that hasn't been said before.
and anyway, two bands who are in the same ballpark sounding "exactly the same" is generally a pretty lazy point of view to take; it's almost like you're determined not to like them
What a cuntish thing.
you're acting a tad unhinged
It is a cuntish thing. Liking things gives you pleasure; deliberately acting so as *not* to like a band is acting so as to deny yourself pleasure. Only a massive, massive cunt would do that. Someone like kissinginkansas or Tristan. I think Elbow are shit. I don't just not like them - I think they're objectively shit. The fact there seems to be some mass autofellation over them on these boards... well, I'd like to say it perplexes me, it it doesn't really. But they're still shit.
you mug! have you even bothered to listen to their albums?! in particular 'seldom seen kid' sounds very different to doves! i agree with untrue - " Doves are brilliant, Elbow are alright
lol. Why would I listen to either of their albums?
LEAVE THIS SHIT TO KISSING IN KANSAS FOR F**K SAKE, DON'T YOU REALISE HOW MANYE PEOPLE *LOVE* ELBOW AND DOVES?! YOU SURE ARE A MASSIVE W****R!!!
(SORRUY GUYS MY CAPS LOCK IS BROKE)
(AND I'M ANGRY)
Doves are meat and potatoes. Have a good line in singles. I swear their drummer is incapable of anything more mentally vexing than 1/1. THUMP THUMP THUMP. Isn't that the name of one of their songs?
Elbow on the other hand are great and you're a tosser.
absolutely stunning. You're talking nonsense.
I told you he'd like them.
How do Athlete fit into the picture here?
having quite liked the album they had the time.
I can only assume they were going for some kind of prize for the most tedious live band in the history of the world ever. Unfortunately for them the charisma-free walking pile of mundanity that was Bows and Arrows-era Walkmen pipped them to the prize.
Just not live, so it turned out.
I don't like The Walkmen at all on record, but I thought they were brilliant when I saw them at Benicassim in 2005.
But they were poor.
but for me the big difference is that Doves had a really good first album...
I'd say that Elbow have a really good first album. Especially with the extra Asleep In The Back song added on. I don't mind their other albums, but AITB is a great album.
I've never been too keen on Doves, as I don't like the singer's voice as much (I can understand comparisons with Elbow, but I still much prefer Guy Garvey's voice). A couple of the Doves' singles sounded fun/good, but that was despite the singer for me.
Actually no...I've changed my mind.
