Editorial Reviews

This Scottish trio offers the most commercial expression yet of the current U.K. obsession with spacey ambient "chill out" music, as practiced by The Orb and Sven Vaith, among others. While much of the dragged-out, slow-paced material here suggests Bananarama on downers, the Stephen Hague remixes of, "Breakdown" and "White Love" say their piece and sign-off quickly. --Jeff Bateman

This C.D. was so hard to find!
Christopher O'neal Farmer
Personally, I like the U.K. version better, the order of the songs seem to flow better.

I fell in love with this CD the first time I ever heard it.

This is a truly beautiful, uplifting and seemingly forgotten album. No review of it I've seen has been able to resist comparing it to 'Screamadelica' (and who am I to break with tradition?) and that is certainly the easiest reference point to use to describe the sound, but of the two albums I much prefer 'Morning Dove White'. While the music itself (elements of dub, ambient and pop, combined with Proper Songs) is inspirational enough, it's the voice of Dot Allison that makes this album so special. From the opening bars of 'Fallen' (the first track on the album and also the band's first single) as she confides 'I don't know why I'm telling you any of this...' her voice sends shivers down your spine. Emotive, expressive and incredibly seductive, her voice is all over this album in breathy background whispers, lead vocals and harmonies to just lose yourself in. But there is more to One Dove than just Dot, as shown by 'There Goes The Cure', one of my favourite tracks which is also largely instrumental.
One Dove recorded a follow-up album which was never released and split up shortly afterwards, which while being pretty tragic does at least mean that their mystique as a lost treasure remains intact. But even 'Morning Dove White' is flawed - at the insistence of the record company it ends weakly with the single remixes of 'Breakdown' and 'White Love', which while being fine pop songs are elsewhere on the album in better forms. 'My Friend' is an instrumental and feels half-baked in comparison to the rest of the album. Now if they'd lost those tracks and put 'Jolene' and 'Skanga' from the single release of 'Why Don't You Take Me' (if you find a copy, buy it) on, they would have had an almost perfect album. But who wants perfection?

With Dot Allison finally release solo work, it's time to take notice of this Scottish band which she fronted before launching herself into her own glory.
Allison's trademark multi-tracked choir vocals are already here, backed by instrumentalists Jim McKinven and Ian Carmichael. The result is a stunning, beautiful, sometimes wrenching dance/pop hybrid with much more flair in the arrangements than nine out of ten techno acts out there. Check out the keyboard work on the two versions of "White Love", or the acoustic guitar that gives "Breakdown" its extra rhythmic punch.
"Breakdown" was the single that should have made this band a superstar act. Instead, the album made a few ripples quietly among record hounds (those who bother to look for albums, instead of just grabbing them off the shelves closest to the exit) and then faded. It's now very hard to find if not for internet resources. And it's a shame, for One Dove was a hidden gem.
Let's hope Dot Allison, set to release her own Afterglow album, won't be overlooked a second time with her solo career. Hers is a subtle, powerful, and rare vocal ability, and when she sings with herself (here on this album or on the "Colour Me" single), it's harmonic magic.

Preparations for One Dove's Morning Dove White: Make sure it's your day off. Turn on the answering machine or better yet, unplug the phone. Wear something comfortable, lie back on the bed or sofa of your choice, plug CD in your stereo system at a volume that will have the full effect, and prepare to enter free float.
A constant backbeat of synthesizer opens "Fallen". Dot's spoken word dialogue comes in around the first minute. All the while, the music builds up, new instruments start coming in, and by the second minute, the ambient atmosphere, "I'm falling" and we're in full swing, or is it full float? Dot's whispery voices, sighs, funky beats, breathy synthesizers.
You'll be taken away by the psychedelic guitar that begins the Guitar Paradise Mix of "White Love". It's trippy enough but doesn't rival that of Jimi Hendrix. It clocks in at ten minutes long and one will be ensconced with "I want to keep hold of this for you." whispered or spoken more audibly, soaring and swooping synths, guitar samples, and voices sped up.
"There Goes The Cure" is probably my favorite long song here, beginning with space age sounds, compressed high-hat, The piano is haunting, wistful, and melodic. Dot's voice has been altered so it sounds like there are many of her, during which we mostly hear the gauze-like lament of "he's gone." In the middle, we hear male cries of agony interspersed, as if he's falling, while a string-like synthesizer rises to a crescendo, before stopping and going on with the piano melody.
"The Transient Truth" contains a burst of a buzzing guitar that's not unlike a bumblebee in water, an ambient funk beat, and softly spoken words.

I don't own this CD anymore, I salvaged "White Love" and "Fallen" and put them on my own mixes and sold the disc - but now I wish I still owned this. This is solid quality electropop that seems to, in retrospect, have bridged the gap from the old dance grooves of bands like New Order to the "trip-hop" scene to have emerged later. I recommend this CD for those two songs I mentioned - very expansive, spacey yet personal. Dot Allison has a beautiful and dreamy voice -- my favorite vocal artists all tend to share common elements of crystal clarity and sincerity. I give it only three stars because the rest of the songs - while not irritating - still didn't do anything for me. Who knows, maybe you'll find more fav's than I did. I am interested in hearing Dot's solo work (now that I know it exists) ... I am amazed at how little attention overall this music this received/s. I accidentally fell upon One Dove from an old "Volumen" Indie compilation ...
