  1. 9.0 |   music OMH

    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

  2. 8.0 |   All Music

    Two decades after her debut, Still on My Mind stands impressively strong, a late-era peak that is refreshing in its fearlessness and comforting with a familiarity that doesn't rest too heavily upon the past. Considering the long gap between albums, Still on My Mind is more than worth the wait

  4. 8.0 |   PopMatters

    Another rich outing for Dido in every way

  5. 7.5 |   Consequence Of Sound

    Twenty years in, Dido knows what she’s good at, even as she’s learned some new tricks. She makes these influences seem perfectly natural and has stretched herself without sounding frayed

  6. 6.6 |   Pitchfork

    The UK goddess of lite pop still sounds serene, unbothered, and preternaturally confident

  7. 6.0 |   Q

    The quieter Dido plays it, the louder this comeback feels. Print edition only

  8. 6.0 |   The Arts Desk

    Dido has described its making as 'homespun', much of it recorded from the sofa at home

  9. 6.0 |   Evening Standard

    The seriousness of Dido’s style can still be a little at odds with her soothing delivery but this feels like a timely return

  10. 6.0 |   The Irish Times

    Highlights include Hurricanes and You Don’t Need a God. Both represent classic and contemporary takes on Dido’s style, ultimately appealing to day-one fans and anyone coming of age in 2019

  11. 6.0 |   Spectrum Culture

    Still on My Mind is not likely to jump to the top of the Dido canon

  12. 6.0 |   The Independent

    There is no earworm melody as insistent as “White Flag” here, but melancholic opener “Hurricanes” and single “Give It Up” boast that same persistent emotion

  13. 6.0 |   Uncut

    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. Print edition only

  14. 6.0 |   Mojo

    The sound of a woman playing to her strengths and the good ship Dido remains reassuringly unsinkable. Print edition only

  15. 4.0 |   The Observer

    More boring and pointless than Brexit
