SCOTTISH singer songwriter Dot Allison has already had one swoop at the charts - as the frontwoman of '90s dance act One Dove.
And her new approach, the synth-free indie album Room 7½, has won the former Death In Vegas and Massive Attack vocalist a lot of people cooing over her once again - not least album guests Pete Doherty and Paul Weller.
You'd think that this might have cheered her up.
But for me, although Allison clearly still has a lot to offer, and I am salivating over the prospect of an album of duets called Collaborations she has in the pipeline, Room 7½ is just too dreary throughout for my tastes.
