    The music on Dove finds a band not only reinvigorated, but also taking enormous pleasure in its activities. [Jun 2018, p.91]

    It sounds, to its considerable credit, very much like the record that might have followed. [Jun 2018, p.24]

    A little indie olive branch, Dove is as welcoming as it is welcome. [Jul 2018, p.108]

    Belly might take a more conventional approach to their music now, but Dove proves it can still take flight.

    It's a comfortable return for a band that didn't worry itself with fitting into a particular pop or rock moment back in the day, and still had enough in common to make meaningful, quality music.

    As a rule, Dove meshes into a good album that might be accounted a small disappointment if this was 1995, but is a pretty spectacular accomplishment for a group of semi-retired musicians in their fifties.

    Shaving a few of the middling cuts like “Heartstrings” and “Stars Align” would have helped the album overall, as Belly’s comeback songs runs together in a cranky sea of relationship angst.
