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).

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...
> Dot Allison from One Dove recently released her solo album.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.

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...
