Adele-21

Adele is probably one of the more frustrating artists I have in my collection. She has an amazing voice, there is no denying that, but her debut album 19 seemed to rely too much on it and most of the songs on it never really grabbed me. I was hoping for more with her most recent album 21, but sadly it seems like more of the same. There are just too many songs on the album that seem to go nowhere and are bland to be perfectly honest. There are a couple standouts, “Rolling In The Deep“, for example, which is the first single off the album,and for great reason. It has a great sound behind her amazing voice, and it’s a great way to start off the album. “Someone Like You” is also a great track, a somber, sad track that showcases Adele’s ability to express the pain of the end of a relationship and the reality that the other person has moved onto someone else. Somehow, the two best songs are the album are the first track and the last track, everything else in between just feels like filler to me. Ironically, the two other songs I really enjoyed on 21 were the bonus tracks “If It Hadn’t Been For Love” and “Hiding My Heart“, which can only be found on a limited edition of the UK version. You could put these two tracks in place of just about any song on the proper album and it would make for a much better listening experience. I love Adele’s voice, but I’m afraid I just can’t get into this album like I hoped I would.
