EDITORS’ NOTES

Adele Adkins recorded her debut when she was still in her teens, but the gravitas and interpretative skill she exhibits on the stripped-down soul-pop of 19 reveal a timeless talent. The introspective “Chasing Pavements” and the biting “Cold Shoulder” showcase her supple alto, which brings her lyrics’ deep-seated emotions to the fore; her sweetly smitten cover of Bob Dylan’s “Make You Feel My Love” turns its professions of devotion into honey drops. A stirring introduction from one of the 21st century’s pop luminaries.
