Whether you choose the single or the seven minute album version, “There Goes The Fear” is a meteoric song of enchanting intricacy and careful arrangement. To combine post punk guitars with South American rhythms, an anthemic pop chorus and this could have worked out wildly overcooked. Doves achieved their masterstroke in their stride and the album this song was pulled from(“The Last Broadcast”) really is one of the greatest collections of this century.
