Amazon.co.uk

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 any 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

Format: Audio CD
Dot's album just blow's me away. The first limited 7" of 'Tomorrow Never Comes', with it's uniquely melancholic lyrics promised great things, but who would have expected an album of such diversity and originality. Each song is stunning in it's own way, from the simple pop of 'Mo Pop' and 'Close Your Eyes', to the trance-like mantra of 'Message Personnel', and the achingly beautiful ballads 'Tomorrow...' and 'In Winter Still'. Not to mention the simply beautiful Hal David collaboration 'Did I Imagine You'.That early promise hinted at in One Dove's 'Breakdown' and 'Why Don't You Take Me' (both very very personal songs to me) is delivered to it's fullest glory here.
I could go on forever but instead I'll just put the album on again and lose myself in it's glorious beauty.

8 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Mr. T. E. Hocknell on 4 Nov. 1999
Format: Audio CD
Ethereal shimmering pop music. The very reason for pop being a musical genre is to allow music like this to be heard. An album which fills a hole in your life which you were unaware of existing until you heard it. Dot Allison spreads her wings beneath you as you fall into her world. It really is wonderful stuff, the songs creep up on you, catch hold and won't let go. Hal David writes the lyrics to Did I imagine you? Which soars and pulls the tears from your eyes, and the long ambient intro to 'winter sun' actually sounds like the lengthening shadows of a crisp winter morning. A fantastic album, and possibly album of the year. Certainly the most criminally neglected album of the year, yet for it's neglected gem quality you feel priviledged to be hearing it and only strengthens the feeling of intimacy. Female voice and decoder always sounded wonderful and underpinned by the throbbing bass provided by Mani (from Primal Scream) makes the 'colour me' a dream. A blissed out slow buring album which sounds like Saint Etienne and Portishead having a picnic in the silver light of the moon.
