    The introspective narrative may not be uncharted territory, but Dido chose these waters. She is unrivalled in navigating them with her disarming and melodic harmonies. If we’re going to hell after this, let’s enjoy this atmospheric goddess while we can. Beautiful.

    Still On My Mind is Dido’s most engaging album to date. It’s her first time trying a style of music that connects multiple genres as well as retaining her original sound and she’s delivered a masterful creation in one take.

    Still on My Mind is another rich outing for Dido in every way. At its peak, it provides awe-inspiring combinations of singer/songwriter radiance and novel sonic manipulations and juxtapositions; at its weakest, it's still innovative and diverse enough to appeal to specific audiences and maintain Dido and company's willingness to expand their palettes and take their listeners to different places.

    Dido’s fifth album, Still on My Mind, guides her even more into the path of serenity and easy listening electronics, with odes to marriage and motherhood that bask in their comforts.

    A return to form that shares DNA with Madonna's Ray Of Light, it combines Dido's introspection with meditative electronica. [May 2019, p.111]

    There's no leap forwards here but Still On My mind is the sound of a woman playing to her strengths and the good ship Dido remains reassuringly unsinkable. [Apr 2019, p.92]

    More boring and pointless than Brexit.

    Dido's fifth studio album is a real work of art, I enjoyed it. As any work it has some skip songs but the overall concept is very well executed

    Superb return to form. Still effortlessly easy listening but with some new tricks and some beautiful melodies and that dreamy Dido vocal.

    Still On My Mind is by far Dido's most cohesive body of work, and I've got to say I'm more impressed than I expected to be. This is a massiveStill On My Mind is by far Dido's most cohesive body of work, and I've got to say I'm more impressed than I expected to be. This is a massive improvement from her previous album, which had a lot of moving parts that incorporated more electronic elements, but as a whole it didn't really work. With this one, she really perfected the acoustic/electronica fusion---all the parts are moving in synchrony with one another and the overall product is polished and makes musical sense. The only issue I really take with the album is that somewhere in the middle it loses its momentum a bit (particularly with the tracks Mad Love and Walking By, which feel a bit disruptive to the track list, but I do still enjoy them). This album offers exactly the poignant lyrics and wispy melodies I'd expect from Dido, but surprisingly (and successfully) layers them over electronic soundscapes and vocal harmonies unlike anything else we've heard from her. It is familiar, but new. Easily her finest work. Expand

    Different melodies and tunes, but a bit boring. Comparing to "No Angel", this looks cheap.
