No Angel [Import Bonus CD/Bonus Tracks]

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Rebecca Wallwork
If Dido's sublime blend of lush, layered pop and electronica seems more like a classic than a debut, it's probably because she's been immersed in music since the age of six. Both her formal classical training and the influence of big brother Rollo of trip-hop ensemble Faithless shine through these songs of introspection and heartbreak. Culled from personal experience, her stint as a literary agent, and simply walking down the street with her eyes -- and ears -- open, the narratives that anchor these floaty arrangements are at once personal and universal.

Barnes & Noble - Rebecca Wallwork
If Dido's sublime blend of lush, layered pop and electronica seems more like a classic than a debut, it's probably because she's been immersed in music since the age of six. Both her formal classical training and the influence of big brother Rollo of trip-hop ensemble Faithless shine through these songs of introspection and heartbreak. Culled from personal experience, her stint as a literary agent, and simply walking down the street with her eyes -- and ears -- open, the narratives that anchor these floaty arrangements are at once personal and universal. The hollow pain of "My Lover's Gone" comes not only from the lyrics but from Dido's rich vocals and the spare melody they rest on. NO ANGEL is both a stunning solo entrée, and one of the most impressive examples of the new pop-electronica hybrid to date.
All Music Guide - Jeff Burger
The title notwithstanding, this debut from the former Faithless singer is pretty angelic-sounding stuff. You're bound to think of Sinéad O'Connor, but the comparison is as misleading as it is inevitable. Granted, Dido's ethereal vocals here frequently recall O'Connor; but Dido's music -- while inventively augmented with electronics -- is generally less adventurous. Ditto No Angel's lyrics, which focus almost exclusively on love, lust, and relationships. That said, the fact remains that this is an auspicious and highly listenable album -- atmospheric, seductive, and beautifully produced and sequenced. [The late 2001 re-release features several bonus tracks and a bonus CD with audio and video tracks, including "Take My Hand," "Christmas Day," and remixes of "Here with Me," "Thank You," "Hunter," and "Take My Hand."]
