Album Notes
Adele's "21" CD album includes 48 minutes of compelling music in 11 tracks. Audiences all over the world have been amazed by this young British artist's talent for songwriting and singing. Several singles included in this CD album, which is Adele's second studio album, reached the top positions of the charts. Songs like "Rolling in the Deep," "Someone Like You," and "Rumour Has It" are distinct from one another, and Adele's vocal performance and the emotional lyrics are captivating. Dramatic, powerful, and inspiring are some of the adjectives that reviewers have used to describe "21," an album that combines pop, soul, and R&B. Listening to this studio album, one would not guess Adele was only 21 years old when she recorded these songs. The theme of this album is heartbreak; it was inspired by a failed relationship that prompted the artist to write lyrics that explore different emotions that range from the anger of "Rolling in the Deep" to the nostalgia of "Someone Like You." These lyrics are complemented in the studio by Adele’s vocal prowess and heartfelt interpretation.

The album earned her a ton of fans, and interest was high for the inevitable follow-up. In many ways, her sophomore album, the similarly age-appropriate-titled 21, is a continuation of the sounds and themes Adele was working with on 19. She is still the bluesy pop diva with a singer/songwriter's soul and seemingly bottomless capacity for heartbreak. The best thing the album does is to showcase Adele's titanic vocal ability, which -- more than a few times on 21 -- is simply spine-tingling. Last time around we got the gauzy, Callier-esque folk-soul ballad "Daydreamer" to slowly draw us into the album; here, Adele immediately injects us with the propulsive gospel fever-blues anthem "Rolling in the Deep." While the track certainly owes a heavy debt to the punk-blues of Beth Ditto and the Gossip, it is also ridiculously sexy and one of the best singles of any decade. Elsewhere, we get tracks like the blues-inflected Ryan Tedder co-write "Rumour Has It" and the old-school-style soul cut "He Won't Go," which are terrifically catchy, booty-shaking numbers and exactly the kind of songs you want and expect from Adele. Similarly enthralling is the centerpiece of the album, the mega-ballad showstopper "Take It All." Co-written by her "Chasing Pavements" partner Francis White, the song begins with Adele proclaiming "Didn't I give it all?" Delivered starkly at first with Adele set against simple piano accompaniment and later backed by a gospel choir, it's an instant-classic sort of song in the tradition of "The Rose," "And I Am Telling You I Am Not Going," and "All by Myself" that could stand over the years as a career landmark for the singer and a cathartic moment for fans who identify with their idol's Pyrrhic lovelorn persona. Ultimately, Adele does give us her all on 21, and for now that is enough. ~ Matt Collar
