3.0 out of 5 stars Hmm. Not what I was expecting. 28 Sep 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Reading other reviewers' comments I expected more than this less than memorable sequence of uncatchy and slightly poppy tunes. Granted I've only listened once (and will post another review if it grows on me) but this collection for me appears to share no DNA with the magnificance of One Morning Dove.

5.0 out of 5 stars In which Dot Allison channels the spirit of folk 25 April 2011
Format:Audio CD
Dot Allison could probably be accused of inconsistency, as every album she releases seems to be driven by a need to radically depart from her previous style. This would be a major issue if she wasn't such a darn fine song writer.

On 'Exaltation of Larks' - a title I assume references the likes of Vaughan Williams - Allison becomes a folk-driven singer-song writer, replete with accompanying banjos, folk violin, lots and lots of pretty lo-fi style picked stringed instruments and the spectre of Nick Drake lending an ephereal guiding hand. She seems to have adopted a very old fashioned way of recording her voice so that it is simultaneously dense yet fragile ... in truth some people aren't going to like this much. In places it veers dangerously towards parady; but for the strength of the material and the sincerity of the performance, this could work to the detriment of the album.

Of course the opposite comes much nearer to the truth, that 'Exaltation of Larks' plays out like a melencholic tribute to a moment where female innocence is emancipated without denying the emancipation of woman. Thus Allison gets to put together a beautiful set of songs about love and loss, without once straying into slushy sentiment (witness 'You Dropped your Soul').

Blinding stuff - the stuff of legends. One day she'll be discovered - maybe this will be a good thing, maybe not. In the meantime she gets better and better...

unlike anything you've ever heard before. understated, breathlessly beautiful, warm, intoxicating. like floating into outer space in an ocean of love. the 3rd installment in an extraordinary series of albums.

5.0 out of 5 stars exaltation of dot 5 Sep 2007
Format:Audio CD
again and again dot allison is able to dip into the zeitgeist, transform it and transcend it. quietly, she has emerged as a bit of an aural-auteur, a master and commander of her own form, medium, and moment. she soared above the ambient tripout with ONE DOVE, delivered peerless pop with her solo debut AFTERGLOW, out-classed the whole of electroclash with WE ARE SCIENCE and now, this haunting, ethereal masterstroke, redefining the notion of nufolk, psychedelia, what have you...she has woven her own tapestry steeped in a real connection to her influences and forefathers and mothers (Dusty, Emmylou...Gene Clark, Brian Wilson, etc) and made a heart-stopping masterpiece. full stop. bravo dot!
