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.
