When I make a record, all I'm ever trying to do is make something I want to listen to," says Dido, who just wrapped up work on her second album, Life for Rent, due September 9th. What she wants to listen to is a mix of dance, hip-hop and rock, a pairing of electronic and acoustic music much like her debut, 1999's No Angel. But this time around, she's "gotten more extreme with the beats." Dido describes the first single, "White Flag", as an "anthem type song" set to hip-hop beats. It's a classic, I-still-love-you-but-I'll-never-admit-it song in which she sings, "And when we meet, which I'm sure we will/All that is there will be there still/I'll let it pass and hold my tongue/And you'll think that I've moved on." "A proper love song," Dido says, laughing. "Just that things don't work out . . . what a surprise!"

Graeme, Goodwood. 27 October 2003
Boy, is this a great cd. I enjoyed the cd with each listen more and more. There are so many great potential hits to come from Dido. Even more than the 1st album. My favourite tracks were...well each and every one, except maybe Mary's in India - I cant get a grip on that song.
But if I had to choose my fave's besides "White Flag" , I would say, "Life for rent", "Dont leave home", "Who makes you feel", "Sand in my shoes" and "Do you have a little time". Excellent album, cant wait to get home and listen again.
One of my albums of the year for 2003.
