Biography

Biography by Jason Ankeny
The electronic pop chanteuse Dido entered London's Guildhall School of Music at age six; by the time she reached her teens, the budding musician had already mastered piano, violin, and recorder. After touring with a British classical ensemble, she accepted a publishing job. Meanwhile, she sang with a series of local groups before joining the trip-hop outfit ...

I admit that I love Dido and practically anything she releases. 'Life for Rent' like 'White Flag' is a strong, and classic Dido, song. For me, her style never gets old. But, there are a few better choices that Miss Armstrong could have made for the second single. 'Home' and 'Sand in my shoes' are, I feel, better candidates for singles. The reason I say this is probably because I listen to these tracks more often than 'Life for Rent.' Still, this single is wonderful and will do well regardless of the fact that it's not one of the best songs on he album.

A fine tune from Dido's second album of the same name. It has thoughtful lyrics and Dido's voice adds that edge to the song that makes it a classic.
It only reached number 8 in the UK charts, but that is because so many people have already bought the album, which I highly recommend.

I eagerly awaited this second Dido album hoping it would be as fresh as the first one. Nahhhhhh, it failed me big time. One or two interesting little toons, but generally winebar music or an album destined to be film soundtrack fodder. Third time lucky, girl. Please!!!!!

Don't rent this- buy it! 6 Mar. 2004
By Adam Todd - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Dido's second single from the album, "Life for Rent", was an immediate favourite of mine after just the first listen of the album so I was very pleased to discover it would be released as a single!
The vocals are faultless, the music is tranquil and the lyrics are just amazing! It's a winning formula for a superb piece of music. It's such a soothing track and really emphasises Dido's unique voice. You simply cannot compare her to any other artist.
The remix of "Life For Rent" surprisingly works. I'm never too certain of ballads transformed into remixes but this is one that does actually succeed. Listen out for the two and a half minute mark for an awesome variation in the song. The vocals are manipulated in such a way that reinforces the unique sound of Dido.
The final track is unfortunately not a new track. It's a remix of the album track, "Stoned". I was never a big fan of this song in the first place and the remix does nothing to sway me on this one! It takes far too long for vocal introduction and I just think that fans would have appreciated a non album track instead. Surely there were numerous tracks that didn't make the album that were still worthy of being released as a b-side on a single.
There is also a CD ROM on the single which features the single's video. Unfortunately, unlike the song, the video is quite boring! Still with such a beautiful song who needs a memorable video?!

Divine Dido does it again... 6 Jan. 2004
By C. Tate - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
While this single has merely three tracks and a video, it is well worth the money. The 'Life For Rent' remix is divinely soothing, and becomes deeper in emotion and power thanks to the added strings and effects. The real gem of this single however is the 'Stoned' Spiritchaser mix. It's similar to the original, with strong chords, but the new techno beat adds extra spice and flavor. The video at the end of the cd is a treat, as always. This single is a must have for all Dido fans alike.

IF I DON'T LEARN TO BUY.... 30 April 2004
By S. Quinto - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is one of DIDO'S best tunes, totally agree on this, so personal and really related to anyone at my age around the mid-20's, so great and personal, and of course atuobiografical, the musical arrangement as always simple and beautiful, the mix it's ok, the Stoned remix it's a taste of was been goin' around the club this days so if this life is for rent....don't work for it....just kidding!
