Alex Clare definitely rocks out on his remake of, “When Doves Cry”. Originally released in 1984 by pop icon Prince, Clare did an excellent job with making the platinum hit record all his own. The track starts off with the piano as the main instrumentation, unlike the original which used the electric guitar. I felt as if Alex Clare kept the traditional rock and roll vocals during the song. During the first chorus a hip hop techno element is added. Clare also samples the original beat throughout the track. This is definitely a track that you can catch yourself listening to over and over again. I always say that not a lot of artists can remake a Prince track, but Alex Clare’s electrifying vocals grab you; giving a new feel to such an classic R&B hit.
