    Reading other reviews on the day looks like I'm at odds with everyone else but here it goes....While it's not a bad album in general terms it's probably one of this bands poorest albums and a disappointment after Some Cities. It's a bit "more of the same" here without any of the memorable moments that were on their last couple of albums.

  1. Whatever way you look at Kingdom Of Rust it’s a magnificent rock record, one which will delight the faithful and also surely see them pick up new devotees.
  2. Previous albums never quite lived up to the band's facility for knockout singles, but this one holds the attention.
  3. Kingdom of Rust is wonderfully dolorous, but when Doves rev up the tempos on tracks like 'The Outsiders,' they show they're not a total pity party.
