The album holds up well to all releases across her 20-year career and was worth the wait.

It’s a strong return to form after years of changes and re-adjustments for Dido.

Consequence of Sound Consequence of Sound

There's a touch of mum-at-the-disco about the dancier numbers, but the sweet acoustica of "Some Kind Of love" and the wispy electronica of the title track still underpin earwormy hooks that won't be denied. [Apr 2019, p.28]

Uncut Uncut

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]

It’s mature, artfully assembled and Dido is a twinkling presence.

Irish Examiner (IE) Irish Examiner (IE)

A continuation of her guiding principles that sound sad but not distraught, rhythmic but not vigorous, lightly brushed by folk but not by those odd harmonies, nodding to electronica and soul without looking either of them in the eye, will smooth the kinks in your life for about 45 minutes.

Still on My Mind is reassuringly familiar – that ethereal voice is unmistakable, and the album’s feel, while current, isn’t a drastic shift in direction.

It’s when her folky roots take centre stage, such as on the intimate “Some Kind of Love”, where subtle electronics add atmosphere beneath naturally lilting vocals and finger-picked acoustica, that Still on My Mind is most enjoyable.

Finally! I have loved Dido since the beginning. Her music has always been a source of comfort, strength, & wisdom when I needed it the most. From my horrible teen years, through my crazy 20’s, and now I’m 32. In a time when music is basically pure crap, Dido is a breath of fresh air. Can’t wait to hear what she has created for us!

Refreshing Beautiful lyricism and stillness, especially contrasted against the backdrop of today's sensory overload, air raid singal sounding music. Also, what a rad album cover.

Fresh air Nice to hear an authentic vocal performance not compromised by crazy over-production so common today. It’s still modern and interestingly produced, it’s just not overdone. Love it.

Gotta love Dido! Still sounding as FRESH if not better as the Stan days. Musical genius, awesome lyricism.
