5.0 out of 5 stars Dido About Time!, 20 Oct. 2008
This review is from: Safe Trip Home (Audio CD)
Well was the album worth the wait? I can assure you having been priviliged to listen to the whole album yesterday with Dido! It most certainly has.
It is almost five years since "Life to Rent", and Dido has certainly had some personal difficulties to come to terms with including the sad loss of her father in 2006. The whole album has, understandably, a darker feel than her earlier offerings, but her songwriting goes from strength to strength. Her vocals, as usual, are pitch perfect throughout. The album starts with the first catchy single "Don't Believe In Love" written I guess after the breakup of her relationship with Bob Page, whom she lived with for seven years. "Quiet Times" and "Never Want To Say Its Love" follow on the the same vein. The atmospheric feel of the best track on the album "Grafton Street" will haunt you for a long time and will wish you longing for more. "It Comes And It Goes" is written about her fear of losing her mind, she would rather lose her leg she says!"Look No Further" is a fantastic track again with a haunting melody, which I absolutely love."Us 2 Little Gods" is one of the lighter tracks on the album and is a future single."The Day Before the Day" is Dido reminissing about the day before the breakup of her relationship. "Lets Do The Things We Normally Do" is a lovely track with a catchy hook, that you will sing along too. "Burnin Love" is one of the weaker tracks on the album, but does not detract from a fantastic album, which wraps up , with "Northern Skies" which again has some personal reflections. Has Dido rediscovered herself, not really, she just took a longer vacation than she would have probably liked. She has taken a "Safe Trip Home" and has worked with what she has always been good at her songwriting. She is now more involved in the production of her music and it shows! Just buy the album and give it a whirl! You will love it!
