Japanese version featuring 2 bonus tracks: 'Worthless' & 'Me'.
Dido's debut is moulded from Sarah McLachlan's intimate soul, Sinead O'Connor's Celtic yelp, and Beth Orton's morose resolve--with all the sharp edges rounded out. Sculpted by producers Rollo (her brother) and techno-scientist Youth, No Angel is dream-pop mixed with Portishead-esque trip-hop; the results are mid-tempo ballads that would feel at home in Seal's neighbourhood. The melancholy opener, "Here With Me", incorporates acoustic rhythm guitar, fluid strings and a snare-driven tempo that simulates the slapping of rain on a windscreen. "My Lover's Gone" is ethereal and misty, sounding at once ancient and modern with its synthesised ocean sounds and seagull cries. The only clunker is "Don't Think of Me", a passive, soft-bellied cousin to Alanis Morissette's "You Oughta Know". These songs play out beautifully in that quiet zone between slumber and consciousness--where you can see everything behind closed eyes. --Beth Massa

Her songwriting is strongly reminiscent of Joni Mitchell, yet certainly her style is her own. "Here with Me" and "Hunter" are signature tunes, but others are reasonably quite haunting ("Honestly OK" and "Thank You").
This would be one of my picks for being marooned with on a 'desert isle'.
1)Here With Me: this song never gets old. It's one of my favorite songs on the album.
2)Hunter: a really good song. She sounds really good here.
3)Don't Think of Me: could have been a really big hit. She nails this song.
4)My Lover's Gone: very cool song. I really like it.
5)All You Want: worth the price of the CD alone. I like the little twist at the end.
6)Thank You: this song was deservedly a big hit. Somehow I never got sick of it.
7)Honestly OK: another really good song.
8)Slide: I like this song a lot. It is very good.
9)Isobel: she finds an interesting way to sing about a controversial topic. It's a good song.
10)I'm No Angel: I like this song. It is a good song for her.
11)My Life: one of my favorites. She sounds really good here.
12)Take my Hand: another great song. It could have been a big hit.
You can't go wrong with this album. It is very good and it's about as good as debut albums get.
a "real must buy"
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'.

This girl is sensational. I've read the other reviews comparing Dido to Sarah McLachlan, Fiona Apple, Sinead O'Connor, etc. Read morePublished on June 13 2004 by Denny Vu Quach
My sisters got 'No Angel' and 'Life For Rent' before I did, so I'm just going to use their copies.

Here with Me, Hunter, and Thank You quickly became favorites of mine in listening to No Angel. All three stand out greatly from the general sound of the songs on this c.d. Read morePublished on March 4 2004 by Doom

This is a great pop album in it's own right. Another reviewer is trying to compare Dido to Faithless, which is a totally deferent genre of music. Read morePublished on Dec 11 2003 by Reed
