  • 'Life For Rent' is the eagerly anticipated follow-up to Dido's debut album 'No Angel', which was released in 1999 and went on to become the world's best selling record of 2001. Written and produced alongside brother Rollo, the album is less polished and more multi-layered than her preceding album, mixing rock, pop, folk, dance and hip hop, whilst still retaining her inimitable style. Includes the lead single 'White Flag'.

After the massive success of No Angel, Dido had a lot of tension put upon her, but she took her time, not to be pressured anyone, she was trying to create a worthy successor to her fantastic debut.
The album is great, sounds great, the lyrics are great, Dido's voice is great, everything is top notch
except
It all sounds very similar to No Angel (NA), nearly all of these songs would fit snugly onto NA without a problem
and that's Dido's flaw, she played it a little too safe and as a consequence her music doesn't sound as if it has evolved much.

On it's own this album is fantastic, definitely worth 5 stars but when put side by side with NA, it loses a point for being too 'samey'

Stand out tracks are 'White Flag', 'Life For Rent', 'Mary's In India', 'Sand In My Shoes', 'This Land Is MIne'

 Fantastic!
