Worth every penny

"This girl is sensational. I've read the other reviews comparing Dido to Sarah McLachlan, Fiona Apple, Sinead O'Connor, etc. But in my humble opinion: She stands alone as a unique artist with an incredible soul to share with the world. Her lyrics are poetry, and the music has beat. "Thank You" and "Here with Me" are just two great songs that we've heard around; but this entire album has the same bittersweet and heartfelt emotion. Clive Davis definitely had insight when he signed Dido up for Arista Records. I've listened to this album everyday since I ordered it from amazon.com (two months ago), and still haven't tired of it.I read other people's reviews and appreciate them, but never thought I'd write a review myself - until now. So take my opinion for whatever it's worth, but Dido's "No Angel" is worth the money and the all the hours of play that you can get out of the CD."
Even better than the hype

"I'd first heard of Dido, after watching "Sliding Doors" some years back, and becoming entranced with the gorgeous song at the end credits. It was apparent that the voice was hauntingly beautiful, but I couldn't trace it.When I finally heard Dido again, on "Roswell" I immediately rushed to pick up "No Angel" and it's become a constantly played CD here at the office. From the breathless caress of "Here with Me" to the oft heard "Thank You", she can belt out a tune that speaks volumes of love's lost labour and hopelessness, with the freshness not easily seen in our pop-chewing-gum music video enhanced world.Reminiscent of Sophie Hawkins, with the Gaelic touch of both Sinead and Kate Bush, she elongates heartbreak in the touching "Honestly OK". It is indeed, hard to find a song that isn't well done here.Here's one CD I won't hesitate to recommend."
Dido is Outrageously Good!

"I haven't been able to stop listening to Dido's "No Angel" since I got it. This is the record the Cranberries wish they could have made after "Everybody Else is Doing It..." With a voice that combines the best of Beth Orton and Dolores O'Riordan, Dido soars, reprimands, lilts, croons, and coddles you through 12 entrancing songs. The songs on this disc are all melodically strong, lyrically potent, and inescapably catchy.My own personal favourite tracks on "No Angel" are 'Hunter,' 'Thankyou,' 'Slide,' and the title track 'No Angel'. 'Hunter' is a propulsive, aggressive personal declaration of independence from a constrictive relationship. Establishing a scenario of female dependence upon men, the song quickly warns against male possession - "This queen you think you own wants to be a hunter again, wants to see the world alone again, to take a chance on life again, so let me go!" The pulsing beat of this refrain lets up near the end of the song, leaving Dido's voice accompanied by a sparse guitar strum, effectively highlighting the insistence of the message. 'Thankyou' emphasizes the strain of melancholia that runs throughout the album - as if to reach their upbeat conclusions, many of the songs need to go through trial and misfortune. 'Thankyou' does just this - a trip-hoppy beat and vocal present us with a miserable situation. Here, the song celebrates the reliability of a comfortable relationship; a phone call or simply being around the other person is "having the best day of my life". 'Slide' is a song of despair and the need for self-forgiveness. Just hearing Dido sing "It's all right to make mistakes, you're only human; inside everybody's hiding something" is wonderfully cathartic. Here again, a spare musical accompaniment allows you to revel in her lovely voice, conferring absolution, driving away the tendency to slide into defeatism and isolation. 'Isobel' is thematically similar. Having just run away, Isobel is encouraged to bear with the stress of recent personal turmoil, and assured of spiritual support. "It's been a long daaaaaay coming" - Beautiful! 'No Angel' turns the lens inward again - reconciling herself to human shortcomings. There is simply nothing whatsoever wrong with Dido's "No Angel," so go to the super-store and purchase it immediately. I adore it!"
