      The Hybrid collaboration track is growing on me as well. It's got vocals
      from Kirsty Hawkshaw, and without meaning to sound blasphemous, the
      vocals there sound a bit more well-rounded and deep than Julie's on
      "Wide Angle". My only real criticism about "Running Up The Way Down" is
      that it doesn't have a real "hook"- it promises to build to a large
      anthemic chorus ("If I Survive"-esque) and never quite makes it. Still
      very slick, though- and it sounds more like a Hybrid track than a BT
      track (mostly thanks to the drum programming and incredible sub-bass
      things going on).

      Yep, they're both long gone I presume.

      Nope, I picked up their second (I think) album "Surprise" because it was
      particularly cheap. I'd already got a few of the singles off it, they're
      competent and very listenable if nothing too special. Worth two quid...

      I knew about this, and on the strength of the One Dove album, I'll be
      picking up that Dot Allison album very soon. And then taking it to the
      counter and buying it. And then listening to it a lot, I imagine.

      Yep, that's the one (called "Morning Dove White"). It's a great album;
      not very Hybrid-esque (that's my attempt to keep this message
      on-topic...), but a very very slick and relaxing album, smooth
      entrancing pop, that kind of thing. Most of the tracks are seven minutes
      plus, but none of them get boring- that's something they have in common
      with Hybrid, at least...

      > hehe, don't go off on any spending sprees now. ;)

      Erm... bit late for that now, I'm afraid. :-)
