Dot Allison - Afterglow (1999) Retail CD
Alternative Pop/ Rock
Whatever the merits or otherwise of Dot Allison's debut album, she has an undeniable talent for coaxing reclusive geniuses out of hiding. Lyrics on one track here ("Did I Imagine You?") are written by long unheard-of Burt Bacharach collaborator Hal David, and the guitars on another ("Message Personnel") are supplied by Kevin Shields of perennially missing-in-action My Bloody Valentine. If Afterglow should happen to stall on the launchpad, a lucrative career in bounty-hunting or the retrieval of kidnap victims would appear to beckon. This is not to say that Afterglow deserves to necessitate anymore… kind of career Plan B. It's a fine pop album, exactly the kind of thing that many have long suspected that Allison would get around to doing one day. Her previous outings with Glasgow dub types One Dove were promising but frustratingly incomplete; left to her own devices, she sounds a lot more sure of herself and her voice--a too-long under-used instrument which manages to suggest at once the warmth of Cowboy Junkies' Margo Timmins and edgy quiver of Beth Orton. The arrangements throughout are innovative without being oppressively clever, the tunes insidious without being strident, and Afterglow is not a bad debut at all. --Andrew Mueller
