Play.com Review

Safe Trip Home is the long-awaited third album from the London-born singer-songwriter Dido. Five years since the release of her multi-platinum second album Life For Rent, Dido returns with a mature album which is draped in thoughtful and delicate tracks that expand her wine-bar sound with shadows of a darker side.

Laced with finely spun melodies, Safe Trip Home is an emotion-filled body of work that encompasses the feeling of desolation and fragility. While lyrically themes follow on from those featured in previous releases in the form of longing and absence, the subject matter of Safe Trip Home is rooted far deeper than the caprice of romantic love. Tackling the difficult subject of her father's death throughout the album, Dido projects her carefully chosen lyrics with honesty and depth amongst the husky yet undeniably sweet tone of her voice. The production of the album comes in the form of acclaimed producer Jon Brion, Faithless member Rollo Armstrong, and Dido herself. Adding in a number of string arrangements that swell the sound to rather grandiose levels on songs such as 'Let's Do the Things We Normally Do' and single 'Don't Believe in Love', the producers have complimented Dido's distinctive cracked falsetto to epic proportions. While the traditional sounding pop songs still remain in tact in the form of 'The Day Before The Day', there are a succession of tracks including the Brian Eno collaboration, 'Grafton Street', and nine-minute closer 'Northern Skies' where Dido experiments with different musical genres and indulges in expansive musical landscapes and Irish vocal quavers.

Since her debut album, No Angel, Dido has consistently focused her energies on bridging the roles of singer-songwriter and art-song chanteuse. By finding suitable producers in Jon Brion and her brother Rollo Armstrong, Dido has evolved brooding, attention-grabbing underscores to create dreamlike backdrops that effectively accompany her voice and fragile tales to perfection. Demonstrating exactly why she is one of Britain's most successful solo artists, Dido delivers with a Safe Trip Home her most effective album to date.

Save your money. I have been looking forward to this album for years, and I've been seriously disappointed with it. The packaging for the special edition is just a cardboard-flap affair.

No Angel and White Flag are 2 of my favourite CDs. This album does even come close. Northern Skies is the only track on the CD I would listen to again, as it is the only track that retains Dido's 'style' and makes use of her unique voice.

The other tracks seem to be dominated by gypsy guitar music.

 Great album, give it a few listens to get used to it

Like a lot of fans I've been waiting for the new album for a lonnngg time, at first I was a bit 50/50 over quite a few of the tracks, but after a couple of listens it really grows on you. Certainly it's a very different 'feel' than No Angel and Life For Rent , but I wouldn't let that put you off - Safe Trip Home has some great tracks, even if most are a lot slower than the likes on LFR and NA.

Personally Northern Skies is one of my favourites, but Grafton Street, and The Day Before The Day are going up each time I listen to them as well.
