It’s a name that’s been applied to Adele by more than one person. Beyonce has said that listening to her music is “like listening to God.” She’s actually been quietly around for a couple of years, but her new album 21 has broken all sorts of records and keeps knocking industry leaders down the charts — people like Rihanna, Lady GaGa, and Katy Perry have lost top spots to Adele.
Her music truly is a revelation– soulful, emotional, sincere, and absolutely gorgeous. It’s astonishing to me that she’s only 22. “Someone Like You” is my favorite song off of 21. It’s the antithesis of “Rolling in the Deep” (above), both in tone and emotion.
