Life for Rent doesn't offer anything that drastically different from Dido's debut album, No Angel - the dance beats are marginally fresher, the production is clean and new - but this predictibility is actually rather refreshing because the album delivers on its promise, unlike many sophomore affairs in 2003. That its promise is rather modest doesn't really matter, since Dido is successful at modest songs. She has a sweet, warm voice and a knack for tuneful modern folk-pop that sounds intimate while being confidently catchy and nicely atmospheric
