ConsRyan Tedder's production on "Rumour Has It"

Three years ago it seemed the charts were awash with singers being hailed as “neo soul” - led by Amy Winehouse, Duffy and Adele. Winehouse has of course been absent for some time, dealing with substance issues and working on that difficult third album. Duffy released her second album at the tail...

Watching the Royal Variety Performance on TV recently, my attention was caught by a singer with a powerful voice and a great song, which I didn’t recognise. Due to the slight country undertones, I wondered at first if the artist was Lady Antebellum, a group I’d heard good things about. However...

ConsNone.

It is beyond clear that 2011 belongs to British soul singer, Adele. Her second studio album, simply titled '21', has gone on to break records around the world - selling 2.6 million copies in the UK in just five short months. Such a figure is mirrored on the other side of the Atlantic, where...

Adele is currently making headlines as her latest album 21 has beaten Madonna’s record and is now the album that has stayed at Number One the longest out of those made by a solo female singer. Someone Like You – a track from this album – became her first Number One single earlier this year. Adele...

ConsShe's better live.

A lot of pop fans at the minute would say that Adele is one of the biggest stars of 2011 sweeping many hearts away with her down to earth image and break up songs that everyone can relate to which have been played to death by radio stations. At some point, at least a few songs or this entire...

ConsSome of the songs sound very similar

2011 has been an amazing year for music. With fantastic albums released in rock, pop, soul and jazz, it's difficult to pinpoint a 'best album' when there's so much great new music out there. However, a stand out has got to be Adele's new album, titled '21'. Adele's second record has gone nine...

21 is the second album of singer-song writer Adele. I bought it after seeing her amazing live preformance on the Brit awards. My copy was £7.99 from Amazon, which i thought was a decent price.

ConsNot a thing!

The thing I find most annoying with music albums is that they usually consist of 50% good songs and then 50% of absolute rubbish simply put on there to fill up the rest of the CD. So I wasn't expecting much different with Adele's '21' album, I was looking forward to listening to her 2 Popular...

Me and my friends and are huge music fans, although it is funny because we all have different tastes. I like pop/r n b stuff and the 'big singers' like Leona Lewis and Celine Dion, whereas my friends are into more 'hip hop' and 'soul' music. The other day, my friend was going on about a new CD...

I liked singer Adele's first album 19, so decided to buy her second CD, 21, as well. Released in 2011, this album is even better than her first. Rolling in the Deep begins the album - this is an incredibly catchy modern soul classic which kicks off the album with style. Rumour Has It is cheeky...

“Adele - 21 - Fantastic”

ProPure Quality Heartfelt Music

ConsAre there any?

Fantastic Adele makes the music industry interesting again. I found 21 to be an album crammed with good songs. It is almost the status quo (no pun intended) for an artist to release an album with maybe two or three chart songs, and the rest as more of an album filler - listen to once songs. This...
