In 2008, Soul-Pop singer Adele released her unbelievably amazing debut, “19”, which earned her some worldwide hits. “Make Me Feel My Love” and “Chasing Pavements” have become classics not only in the UK, but all over the world. Now she has grown a bit, and is ready to give the world a taste of a more matured Adele, both emotionally and vocally. It’s so hard to believe that Adele is only 22, because not only is her voice mature for her age, but her style and music seems like something a 22 year old would never be singing. But everything that may seem wrong about Adele actually works perfect for her. Her album is filled with emotional vocally-driven tracks. There are no fillers here; every track will break your heart, and bring you life that you never knew you had. From beginning to end, every single line in the album is sung beautifully, and the production is even more fantastic. Every song was written by Adele, and is about personal experiences. There is no way anyone can not like this album.

  1. Rolling In The Deep: The first single. Has the perfect amount of sass. A nice departure from the bubbly ballads in “19”. 9/10
  2. Rumor Has It: The only song where Adele shows no sympathy; it’s all about the revenge on this one, with lyrics like “Just because I said it, doesn’t mean I meant it”, and “Rumor has it he’s the one I’m leaving you for”. 9/10
  3. Turning Tables: One of the most beautiful songs on the album. The song has what is probably one of my favorite lines of any song I’ve ever heard; “I can’t keep up with your turning tables, under your thumb I can’t breathe.” 9/10
  4. Don’t You Remember: Adele really shows her growth as a vocalist on this one. The chorus will melt your heart to pieces. The song is a plea for a man she loves to remember why he loved her, and you can feel every bit of heartbreak in her voice. 8/10
  5. Set Fire To The Rain: The most radio-friendly song on the album. Most of the song is predictable, but the ad-libs at the end are to die for. 8/10
  6. He Won’t Go: Different than the first of the song. Very commercial, but still original and soulful. 8/10
  7. Take It All: Very intense track, with a background choir in the background to make things even more epic. 8/10
  8. I’ll Be Waiting: Probably the least memorable song on the album. Adele’s vocals are great, but the song isn’t very memorable. 6/10
  9. One and Only: A great bluesy track with fantastic lyrics. 7/10
  10. Lovesong: Adele really excels in this track. It’s a very simple song, but it stays on your mind. 7/10
  11. Someone Like You: One of the most heartbreaking songs ever written. Every note is hit perfectly, and touches the right part of the soul. Everything about this song is perfect, and I’m dared to say it’s probably her best song to date. 10/10

M.O.G. RATING: 9/10
