Adele’s 21

Dear Guy Who Broke Adele’s Heart,

 Thanks.

 Sincerely,

Everyone with Ears.

 

Adele’s breathtaking sophomore album 21 was released here in the States in February of this year and has been on a constant tour of Clermont County since then, filling holds at all ten branches for the last nine months. I just got a copy last week and the wait was well worth it.

Like her previous album, 19, all of the songs on 21 are centered on a single relationship and its painful end.  With her retro-soulful style, astounding vocals and deeply moving lyrics each song by the British songstress is a powerful statement of love and loss.  The singles Rolling in the Deep and Someone Like You have been getting serious airtime on the local radio but it is the as of yet undiscovered gems like Rumor Has It and Set Fire to the Rain that really round out what can only be described as a timeless and amazing album.

There are still a number of people waiting for their turn with a copy of 21, but if you add your name to the list you won’t regret the time you spend waiting.

If you don’t want to wait and are looking for something to check out now some of Adele’s more popular songs on these albums:

  1. I love this album! I bought it for my wife when it first came out and took it from her. I have had it in my car ever since. What is this sound coming out of Great Britian? I hope we hear more of it.
