5.0 out of 5 stars One of my favorite albums from 2003, 13 Aug 2004
This review is from: Life for Rent (Audio CD)
My first exposure to Dido was through her brother Rollo's band Faithless, my favorite dance act of all time. Then I heard her on "World Beat", a defunct music show on CNN. That was what really impressed me the most. I bought her debut album "No Angel" because of the segment on Dido. When "No Angel" blew up here in the states, it didn't take me long to grow weary of hearing "Here I Am" and "Thank You". To be honest, I really wasn't sure if I wanted to get "Life For Rent", the follow up to "No Angel" but after hearing "White Flag", the first single off the album, a few times, the song grew on me immensely and I bought it. I am so glad that I did because the cd hasn't left my stereo at home and my work PC since last year. I truly believe that "Life For Rent" is vastly superior to "No Angel". The title track is most definitely my personal favorite song on the album. Not only did I fall in love with the addictively catchy melodies but the lyrics really spoke to me on a cerebal level that a lot of songs today don't. I love how the entire album is laid back and laced with acoustic guitars which adds another layer to Dido's trip-hop-infused pop music. "This Land is Mine" is also another personal favorite song of mine. I always find myself singing along to the song. All of the songs on this album are stunning in their own right. Dido probably had a lot of pressure to live up to the success of "No Angel". I personally thought she succeeded although the album hasn't really caught on here in the states like the way "No Angel" did. I love Dido's breathy, seductive vocals put to the trip-hop/folk beats provided by her brother Rollo and other producers. I love the hidden track on the cd. Very catchy and fun to sing a long to. I look forward to hearing more from this talented singer.
