Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Dido's debut is molded from Sarah McLachlan's intimate soul, Sinéad O'Connor's Celtic yelp, and Beth Orton's morose resolve--with all the sharp edges rounded out. Sculpted by producers Rollo (her brother) and techno-scientist Youth, No Angel is dream-pop mixed with Portishead-esque trip-hop; the results are midtempo ballads that would feel at home in Seal's neighborhood. The melancholy opener, "Here with Me," incorporates acoustic rhythm guitar, fluid strings, and a snare-driven tempo that simulates the slapping of rain off a windshield. "My Lover's Gone" is ethereal and misty, sounding at once ancient and modern with its synthesized ocean sounds and seagull cries. The only clunker is "Don't Think of Me," a passive, soft-bellied cousin to Alanis Morissette's "You Oughta Know." These songs play out beautifully in that quiet zone between slumber and consciousness--where you can see everything behind closed eyes. --Beth Massa

By Reine des Coeurs VINE VOICE on July 6, 2000
Format: Audio CD
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.

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.

Dido's music has a way of sneaking up on you. I've been watching Roswell since the series premiered, and only recently did I feel the need to find out who it was that sang "Here with me." When I received the cd from Amazon, I listened to it in my office at work. Since I keep the office door open, I couldn't play it too loudly, because I did not want to disrupt my colleagues (what can I say, I'm a nice guy). "Here with me" is the first cut on the album, and it didn't really impress me. I listened to the rest of the album, and still wasn't impressed.
However, as I listened to the cd a second time when I got home, I was liking it a whole lot better. And the thing is, it gets better every time I listen to it. Dido's voice is natural and yet full of emotion. She never gets unnaturally loud. And the backing instrumentation is very professional, with a driving rhythm that doesn't get boring. The only other female singer I am familiar with who sings so naturally and emotionally is Sade Adu. Tracey Thorn of Everything but the Girl comes in a close second (Dido and Sade hit me closer to the heart). I can and do listen to "No Angel" several times a day now. This album is simply awesome. All of the songs are better than good, and they are not all cut from the same cookie cutter mold. Dido, like Sade, infuses her songs with a beauty that's timeless and emotions that will never fail to touch your soul. That is, assuming that you have one and that you are in touch with it :)

If you like stuff like "Possession" by Sarah Mac, you'll like this album. You might recognize her voice from "Stan" by Eminem, where they sampled her song "Thank You", although it seems odd that she would get used for that song. This is not avant-garde music, but wonderful and emotional pop music from a great British singer. It has the slow ballads, but also some good energetic tunes that should eventually go #1. It's well produced without sounding too electronic, as well as being good "day in the life" poetry (and not sappy like Jewel, for example). She's very talented, and not just another pretty face. If you enjoy U2, Natalie Imbruglia, Poe, Sara Mac, Fiona Apple, or David Gray, you're probably in the right mind-set for Dido.

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.
