    It's well produced, certainly. But it's a well produced bland and dull album. "Safe" would be an adventurous description. Dido's voice sounds effortless. But it also sounds emotionless and completely unengaged, too. She could be singing the instructions for a Sanyo microwave or an account of unendurable human sorrow - it would be impossible to tell the difference

  1. The emotion in these sad, subtle songs seems inherent enough, though you may still find yourself wishing she'd allowed the slightest hint of it to creep into her voice.
  2. This album is a mature and thoughtful collection of songs and a fine memorial to her father, who would have been right to be proud.

    Dido's third solo album reveals an unyielding fear of intimacy, her mellow trip-pop (coproduced by Jon Brion) buckling underneath sadness and alienation.
