Riff: Dido – “No Freedom”

Jan 30, 2013

By the look in your eyes I can tell/You don’t think I’ll be back for more

from No Freedom lyrics by Dido

Amplifying everything that made Safe Trip Home such a non-event, Dido takes another journey into trip-hop dullsville whilst realising that to love someone, you sometimes have to set them free. Shame that she delivers this affair of the heart with less emotion than most would reading a cereal box.
