White Doves ‘There goes the Fear’ Review

There goes the fear of deprived doves; there comes the reality of majestic doves…

         The white doves slothfully have come up with a whole New World for the music world we plunge into once we switch on the radio. Rather than discarding all their effort into looking like men who over used face paintswho enjoy terrorising people with heart conditions by suddenly unexpectedly and certainly tunelessly roaring loudly, (such as the pitied heavy metal of today), or even being excruciatingly ‘sweet’ (like Kylie), the doves has decided that they are just not bothered to do any of this. Their voices sound wearied, bored and irked, however, surprisingly the fact is that this is what makes the song so awe inspiringly beautiful, relaxing and soft.

        This amazingly new interior way of singing is produced in ‘there goes the fear’. By having such simplistic lyrics when listening to the music is like a birthday partyyet without gifts.

It even makes you think that seeing as they are so well bonded, perhaps he is not bonkers for exploding out of the supermarket and leaving his wife shattered with nothing more than a tin of beans.

        Subsequently, after dumping his plain wife the man rushes into a car and an image of the beautiful woman is superimposed with a close up. This result in making the woman seem so much more powerful and even godlike, thus representing the fact the woman is controlling the man’s frenzied instincts. Finally once he manages to move his car, which takes longer than it should showing that there may be guilt holding him backthe man passes a spaghetti-junction-like road. The symbolism of this represents the different paths and routes of life he could have taken. At first the sky is ...
