*** 1/2 Doves, "Lost Souls," Astralwerks. Radiohead fans who felt betrayed by the abstraction of the group's new album can find solace in the powerful debut by this Manchester trio. Like Radiohead, Doves continue the legacy of atmospheric exploration launched by Pink Floyd, minus the druggy stupor and with an extra layer of eclecticism. The dreamy, nocturnal vibe of these 15 tunes reaffirms that nobody beats the British at evoking the melancholy mood of an autumn afternoon.
