Editors’ Notes

Adele Adkins was showered with critical huzzahs and walked away with an armful of awards after her hit debut album 19 appeared in the summer of 2008. Adele displays a formidable talent as a vocalist, underplaying her lines with insinuating feints and seductive shadings. There are elements of acoustic folk and coffeehouse jazz as well as R&B in these tracks, heard in airy, playful numbes like “Daydreamer” and “Crazy for You.” Adele’s delicately girlish vocal on “First Love” contrasts with her whiskey-dipped tones on “Right as Rain.” But what grabs the listener most are her soul queen moves, tossed off with a sultry flair that can be mesmerizing. The string-drenched “Cold Shoulder” and the brooding “Melt My Heart to Stone” show off her extraordinary subtlety and control. As for the ballads, they are all but impeccable — “Hometown Glory” and a cover of Bob Dylan’s “Make You Feel My Love” ache with inner fire. A-list producers Mark Ronson and Eg White help make 19 a sonically rich and variegate experience. But in the end, it’s Adele’s show, and she holds the spotlight with undeniable authority.

I give this album 5 stars for the sole reason of "Hometown Glory", its a fantastic track.


Adele has been one of the most hyped up artists of 2008 and i can see why. this album which contains the hit ' chasing pathements' is a delight to listen to. with her fantastic vocals and good tunes you won't be getting bored of ' 19' any time soon. best song : crazy for you'

A Breakthrough!

If the lead single, 'Chasing Pavements' was anything to go by, this album should have been a masterpiece. And it is! Granted, it takes a few listens to really get into it, but when you buy muisc, the aim isn't to listen to it once and throw it away, so this is a brilliant investment. After the second listen i was hooked, not only by Adele's outstanding vocals throughout, and the stunning production behind her, but lyrically it is super! My personal favourite track would be 'Right As Rain' because it is just so damn catchy! It's an upbeat, sassy and exciting track! I give it 5 stars without doubt!

When the U.K. press began dubbing Adele "the next Amy Winehouse" in late 2007, the hype didn't touch upon the heavy singer/songwriter influence found in the Londoner's music. Influenced by Roberta Flack and Suzanne Vega as much as Jill Scott, Adele soon became a phenomenon in her own right; her second album, 21, eventually sold an estimated 30 million copies worldwide, making her one of the few sales successes in an age of digital streaming. Adele first made an impression in 2006 when her demo landed...
