At last, Doves return with their first album in four long years, Kingdom of Rust ($14)—and trust us when we say that it was worth the wait. If you liked the British trio's previous work, there's nothing you won't love here. The album is rich with brooding vocals, intense guitar riffs and songs that stick. Unfamiliar? Think U2 or Coldplay and you've got a starting point. Stand-outs include "Compulsion," "House of Mirrors," and the title track (listen to it here).
