It's no news to anyone that Dido was shot out of relative obscurity into worldwide fame when Eminem used a portion of her song 'Thank You' in his huge hit 'Stan'. However, she should not be pushed aside and thought of only as "that girl who sat on the toilet and sang a couple lines in a pretty good rap song". Dido is an amazing talent, and definitely deserves all the publicity and success she receives. If you're a fan of amazing lyrics, genuine beauty, and simple - though still amazing - music, Dido is your kind of musician.
A voice that is beautiful, pure, and soulful all in one, helps to set Dido apart for the crowd of other "pop-stars" her age. She also has true talent (which is oftentimes quite rare in the music industry these days), which can be adored by music lovers of all kinds. She writes as though she has experienced life from many perspectives, and it seems impossible to doubt that she has when listening to any of her lyrics. My personal favorite tracks are 'Hunter', 'Don't Think Of Me', 'Honestly OK', 'Isobel', and 'Take My Hand'. I'd recommend Dido's 'No Angel' to all fans of soulful, personal, and very inspiring music. And if you like what you hear, Dido's sophomore release, 'Life For Rent' is just as good as - if not better than - 'No Angel'.
