"Girl Who Got Away" is an amazing follow-up to the darkness and intimacy of "Safe Trip Home", an album that I really enjoyed, back in 2008, but that you could feel was not made to please everybody, as it deals a lot with Dido overcoming, somehow, the death of his father by paying homage to him.

On this album Dido walks away from the electronic roots of her previous works and decides to learn how to play some instruments.
The result are soft melodies, wrapped with a lot of emotion... wonderfuly sang by her pure and genuine voice.
It's something very different of what today is considered pop and commercial, perhaps that's why the album sell less than No Angel and Life for Rent.
"Grafton Street" is truly a masterpiece.
Dido never desappoints!

Dido is such an amazing singer.
Every time I listen to No Angel, and believe me, I've heard it hundreds of times, it still makes me calm down, relax, and enjoy every moment.
One of the best albuns of the 21st century. Even better on this digipack edition!
