Girl Who Got Away is proving to be an electronic wonder drug, encouraging DJs and ambient pandits alike, to experiment and celebrate the beats that compose Dido’s most recent musical effigy. “No Freedom,” a triumphant number from the new record rekindles Dido’s roots that began in steadfast electronica. The track already has two uniquely different, but delightful remixes under its belt.
Vocally, Dido continues to maintains a sound that continues to easily translate to her acoustic sessions. However, songs like “Blackbird” are best enjoyed in their electronic glory. The track is irrefutably one of the album’s highlights, harking to British house that shaped much of the late nineties. It’s a masterpiece that demonstrates the overwhelming distress that is heartache.
